Happy Birthday Shawn!!

Sunday's are a busy day for Shawn and yesterday it was his BIRTHDAY!!! We happened to manage a fun time, in between meetings. Happy Birthday - we hope you enjoyed your day.

The girls are ready and waiting for Dad to get home from Bishopric Meeting. We had put a birthday banner up, balloons and put his presents out. They couldn't wait to yell, "SURPRISE! Happy Birthday!"Opening Presents....at which point Andie said, "Mom?! You're taking a picture of me in my PAJAMA'S?" Already embarrassed at 3! Shawn got his favorite thing....CLOTHES (haha) Poor guy! During this time of "needs vs. wants" he sacrifices much. He did get a map to collect the new quarters that will come out over the next 11 years featuring National Parks. With his birthday money from Parents and Grandparents, he bought a wireless router for the computer, so that we can play MarioKart on the Wii with my siblings! Thanks Everyone!!
We surprised him with a yummy brunch in between meetings. A double-decker sausage, egg & cheese mcmuffin. (Note: He didn't want a picture of this, but I was proud of it - so I took one.)
My attempt at a turtle pie. As you may or may not be able to tell, it's HOT and HUMID in Georgia and although it only took me less than 2 minutes to pipe on the hot fudge, it was already melting before I could get it to the freezer. (And no, I was not piping heated hot fudge.) Oh well....it tasted great!!
We ended the evening having a few friends over to play games.
Happy Birthday Shawn! You are a great husband and father and we are so lucky to have you in our lives! (even though you are SO old!) :)

Thanks for the wonderful day! I loved it so much. It was so neat to spend time with you guys and enjoy the fun, food, and presents. I also wanted to thank all those that wished me happy birthday at church, on Facebook, and my family. I hope that I can return the favor someday.
