Today was Matt's 30th Birthday, and after a Cowboys win over the Saints last night, nothing could possibly make this day any better... or so he thought. :)
It started out with Brooklyn saying, "Happy Birthday Dad!" ...and quite audible, too (we practiced for the last 3 days). Then we found out, much to Matt's approval and delight, how much of a football fan Brooklyn really is (see video below). His cake was a homemade ice cream cake and it turned out really yummy, but the 30 candles became a real fire hazard before the end of the song, Happy Birthday (see photo below). Overall, it was a GREAT day for Matt and our little family.
You can see the fire starting to spread to the cake! Yikes! Hurry up and blow them out - but not until I am done singing. :)
Little did Matt know, his candles were trick candles and it took some mighty wind to blow them all out - which ended up making quite the mess of ash and wax all over the table - but very entertaining to watch. :)
This is a random picture of Daddy reading books with Brooklyn before bed. Lately, Brooklyn has really enjoyed this part of her bedtime routine (although her face doesn't show it). I guess she's just trying really hard to figure out 'how much I love you'.
Up to the moon and back, sweatheart... the moon and back. :)
