Halfway to Seventy

"The only thing that comes to us without effort is old age. "

Tom's birthday was last week. Normally we celebrate Birthday Week in our house, but this year Tom wasn't around a lot for celebration. He has been working a LOT, which is good, but we didn't have much time to do any "partying". On Saturday we went to the Melting Pot for dinner. I felt almost like it was MY birthday since we were going to one of my favorite places, and Tom got the cheese, entree and dessert he knew I would choose. You have got to love a man that spoils you on HIS birthday. Afterwards, we went to the mall to get his presents. I had them picked out but I was too worried to buy them without having him decide/try them on. He definitely doesn't have time right now for worrying about going to the mall for returns. On Sunday we had dinner and had bought a Cold Stone ice cream cake. (Not on our P90x approved diet, but birthdays don't count) The girls helped us pick out the cake and loved singing to their daddy.
I am so lucky to be married to my best friend. Even though I don't gush or swoon, I know he realizes how much I love, admire and appreciate him for everything he does. He makes me a better person and I hope I do the same for him. Tom, I LOVE YOU!

We just celebrated Bob's b-day on Sunday, but Tom has him beat by one year.

I am loving all the new posts. Keep them coming! Your girls seem to be as full of personality as their mother is.
