Happy 40th My Most Excellent Husband!

Well I was almost done writing this post on my most excellent husband when my computer crashed and I lost it all! So I'm going to try again.
Today day is the day of my most wonderful husbands birth. For if he had not been born I wouldn't have spent the last 13 years as the happiest wife on earth or have 3 awesome kids and I for sure wouldn't be writing this post!
He is truly an excellent husband and father. He has a passion for the word of God and it shows in who he is. He is selfless and giving. Hardworking and talented. He uses his gifts to bless others all the time. He would truly give you the shirt off his back. Which I wouldn't mind, because I like looking at it. His back not his shirt! LOL. You didn't think this post was going to be all serious did you?
Anyway, I threw him a surprise birthday last night. We had a great time and his friends showed him great love.

Here is a picture of the birthday boy at his party. Don't you just love dimples?

Here is a picture of his STORE bought cake. Yes I said store bought. I didn't make one because I would have then had to figure out a way to explain to my younger children why Mommy was making a cake and then taking it away. I was afraid something would be said to Daddy, therefor I opted for the store bought cake. BUT! I didn't eat any! Ha! I'm saving my calories for........

THIS! My Peanut Butter Pie. Oh yes! This is what my husband chose for his birthday "cake" and I am not going to argue. You can find this recipe on my cooking blog but I don't recommend making it if trying to lose weight because you will not be able to eat just one piece. It is soooooo good!

I had to throw in a picture of us together and since I didn't get one at his party this one will have to do. This is us getting ready to go to his company Christmas party. I love my man!!!
So on this day Jan. 6, 2009 I celebrate the birth of my wonderful husband!
Happy Birthday my Precious!
