I look at the calendar and think to myself ... 'I don't feel a day over 27', yet sadly, those days are long gone. I normally wouldn't post something on my own birthday, but since Matt and the kiddos put together such a production, I think I should share.
Matt came home from work a little early today, handed me the car keys, and said, "Dinner will be ready at 6:00". I was so excited! So I hopped in the car and headed for the library.
After getting what I wanted I went to JoAnn's, another of my favorite retreats, just to look at some future possible projects. I then swung by the store for some milk, bread and eggs and pulled in promptly at 5:59 p.m.
Earlier Matt had asked what I wanted for dinner and I requested Papa Murphy's Take 'N Bake Chicken Garlic Pizza (something we dreadfully miss), but since there aren't any P.M.'s here, I asked him to just make pizza. So when I walked in and saw a chicken garlic pizza I was so pleasantly surprised. He said the recipe is secret (I'll get it out of him sooner or later), and assured me he made it himself. He'd made a great spinach salad and then we had an ice cream cake. I promise I'll get back to portion-control tomorrow:).
Then Wes and Kate paraded in with gifts: the Mormon version of Pride & Prejudice, some rabbit ears (we nixed our cable last year and decided to reinstate the rabbit ears and converter box), some Tic-tacs and Carmex. Boy does he know what I like, or does he know what I like! I was elated.
We then finished off the evening watching Forever Strong, a Father's Day gift to Matt from my parents. Wow, if you haven't seen this movie - it's a great one.
What a great day, interspersed with phone calls, video wishes via blogs, emails, cards .. it was just great! Thank you.
