Birthday Day...

Well, as far as birthday's go around the Frumpy House we make sure the girlies get a wonderful birthday experience. When it comes to the man of the Frumpy House & myself, well at our ages sometimes we'd just as soon forget about the date and play on...

Well, that is, we like to forget our birthdays, but we don't necessarily want everyone else in the house to forget it's our special day!

Once again tho', the mother in the Frumpy House (aka ME), forgot something important...yesterday was the man's birthday. Now it wasn't a BIG birthday as far as that goes...not the big 4-0 or anything. But it was his 41st.

Since the girlies and I just pretty much stumbled around with coffee and cartoons (first day of Christmas vacation folks), none of us so much as gave him a "Happy Birthday" or a birthday kiss....le sigh, I am such a bad wifey sometimes.

So, we did what any high tech family would do... we sent him a text message on his way to work with a nice (albeit bedhead & jammie showing) video birthday wish....

Ok, I don't have the backwards phone videography/photography thing down AT ALL...but he understands and that's all that matters.  He appreciates my effort most of the time!

So, the girls and I, spent the rest of the day shopping and making cards and dinner for the special (ok he's the only man) man of the house....

He was surprised and happy that we thought about him, especially on his birthday. The nachos kinda made up for the brain fart in the morning...
The way to my man's heart is still through his stomach!

We had a great evening and enjoyed family time...the girls were tucked in, the man of the Frumpy House had the remote for the evening & I was snuggled in on the couch beside him reading a book...

Then later....well, let's just say "for an old man he still has it"....bow-chicka-wowow!!!

(hehe, he's probably gonna kill me for saying that)
