Happy 40th

Yesterday was my husband’s 40th birthday. Lucky him, I wasn’t even cruel in the slightest way! And no, it wasn’t because I fear what he will do to me, I already turned 40!

We had a wonderful weekend. We had friends over Saturday night, went out for bagels the morning of his birthday, had tea and birthday cake in the afternoon with my parents, enjoyed cocktails on the porch (it was unusually cool for us) and had a wonderful crab cake dinner.

While I don’t have time to post a recipe with this, I simply had to include pictures of the cake. Josh requested red velvet with a cream cheese icing. Jack is the one who helped with the “decorating”. We originally talked about putting their skeleton Lego man on the top for a poke at how old Daddy is, but Jack changed his mind and put an alien toy on top instead. Sometimes I wonder what goes through his mind!
