Birthday Wishes

My handsome husband had a birthday yesterday!

Here were some of his birthday goodies:

A card from Kami. Good thing he's not too sensitive. Could have been more like a punch in the gut seeing just how over the hill he is, according to her. She's not trying to be funny or mean. Just sayin' it like it is.

And on the inside, a special reminder about just how old he is... Granny called and sang to him, as she does EVERY ONE of her over 100 grandkids and grandkids'-in-laws. Is this the cutest thing you've ever heard? She's 97 and watches American Idol! And is calling herself one! OmiGOSH!!! Listen to her song below.

All I could manage for him was some birthday cupcakes and lots of hugs and kisses. I really feel bad about it... I wanted to do so much more!!!! This time of year is so crazy with basketball and all that it's so hard to make a big deal of his birthday. I guess since ORU won by 30 on his birthday, that is a pretty good present. But, he does have a little surprise coming on Sunday! I don't think he reads this thing too often, so I will tell you that his bday present begins with an i. A little i. So excited!!!!!
