This past Sunday my dear hubby turned the big 2-4. Yes, I am a cougar (only by 4 months or so :o)). We decided Jer's Birthday would have to last a whole week this year. Our primary children helped confirm this when we realized it was fast Sunday and we couldn't bring them treats. I bribed them by saying, "It's Brother Pendleton's birthday today but since it's fast Sunday we can't have treats. If you're really good today, I will bring you cupcakes next time." Needless to say, they were surprisingly good.
We had a Barton family dinner that afternoon and Jer's mom made him some delicious cupcakes. It was fun to be with family for Jer's big day.
Bright and early Monday morning I decided to make Jer breakfast in bed. He does NOT like the picture I took of him right after he woke up so I will omit that one. I made him buttermilk pancakes with strawberries.
Our friends the Bready's offered to host a little birthday BBQ for Jer at Eric's parents' house in Alpine.
My sister gave Jer a gift card for Outback Steakhouse and our friends the Wildes gave us a couple of movie passes so we were able to have a birthday date for Jer and saw the Avengers after a great dinner at Outback.
Tonight Jer and I will use our Pass of All Passes (aka free into Trafalga and Seven Peaks for a year) and go mini golfing. Tomorrow, we will celebrate with our primary kids with cupcakes and then, sadly, Jer's birthday will be over. Until next year!
Between all this celebrating, I have been doing some crafting to earn some extra money. I'm trying some new things as well as sticking with what has worked.
