Happy Birthday Darren!

(Ice Cream Cake from Pino Gelato on Franklin Road. I had this especially designed for Darren. Although, he BARELY ate 3 bites and not because it wasn't tasty, but because he's "Mr. Health Concious." The cake consisted of oreo cookie gelato, oreo rounds, and a special message for the birthday boy!)

Today was Darren's 34th birthday! I was able to find the time to cook him (3) meals today (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). It pleased me to be able to do that for him. After leaving for church, I had my neighbor Lisa set up his gifts in the kitchen, close to the door leading out to the garage. My goal was to have him walk in from Church and be surprised. Thank you Lisa for doing that for me. What a lifesaver! Darren received a bike, a bike rack, a nook carrying case, non-alcoholic Kahlua coffee for his Keurig machine, a few new articles of clothing for Spring, and a pillow pet (there's a story behind that. I will share in another post.). After all of the above and mounds of texts and phone calls from all of his friends and family, I think he definitely felt loved. As a matter of fact, Darren went to bed saying, "Honey, thank you for making my birthday so special!" It was my pleasure.

Darren, when God created you, he was thinking of me!!!

The pictures are not the greatest. They were snapped at the last moment (almost after the fact).

Jax and Lilah both LOVED daddy's new doggy pillow pet.
He will gently remind us of our sweet doggy Ninja.
