~Celebrating Mr. Husband Part 2~Cake~Candles~Joy~

Believe it or not, 
I kinda think the cake was even better this year!
I will try to do a post later on about how I did
this year's cake....

I love the moment when Mr. Husband comes
out to the dining room and I've lit the
7 candles... 
I lit one at a time with different prayers for him... 

His final 4 presents...
7 seemed to be a theme as that was how many 
he unwrapped this year...
He got two more bars of vegan chocolate,
one with ginger and one with chili
and some trader joes jelly beans.
And two more books, shown below :)

I love our birthday table this year!

We had scrimp for his birthday,
with peanut sauce, rice, Indian junk food 
and salad.

It was such a joy!

Cleo decided she wanted to try sitting on one
of my knitting baskets.
I took the picture then took her off and 
gently explained to her that the basket
is really not strong enough for her to do that again... :)

First edition with dust jacket,
Chesterton on Dickens! 

And 4th printing first edition of 
Chesterton's book 

the Thing. :)
We are bringing cake and cupcakes to church
tomorrow to continue the celebration
and it's been a wonderful week of 
being thankful for my Mr. Husband and his birth!

What fun you had in the planning and executing - and a worthy cause for sure! So nice that those tulips were still looking so bright. I'm very interested in the (vegan) Indian junk food!!
