A very important October event...my birthday!

October has been one busy month! This month we have had friends and family visit us from out of town, celebrated our wedding anniversary and the most important part of October was my birthday. I consider my birthday one of the most important holidays in our family. Its right up there next to Christmas and Moe's birthday.

My birthday is such an important event that Renaissance Man takes that day off of work. And when my birthday falls on a weekend, he takes a Friday off. He's been taking a day off of work for my birthday since we first got married. He's such a good man.

We celebrated my birthday for an entire weekend and I did absolutely nothing around the house. Whenever I was asked of something from Moe or RM, I told them I couldn't help because it was my birthday. Here are just a few examples:

Example #1:
"Mom, I can't find any clean clothes."

"Sorry, I can't help you it's my birthday."

Example #2:
"Hey honey, do you know where I put car the keys?"

"Sorry, I can't help you it's my birthday."

Example #3
"Mom, what's for lunch?"

"Sorry, I can't help you it's my birthday."

Alas, all good things come to an end. My birthday weekend has come to a close.... and Moe still needs clean clothes.



My favorite cake is sponge cake with custard & raspberry filling with whip cream. Cake compliments from my Aunt Sue & Uncle Mike who came from out of town with a birthday cake, presents, and watched Moe's Friday night football game with us.



RM let Moe do the honors of lighting up my cake. RM decided not to put the same amount of candles as my current age...he thought it would set off the fire alarm.




I wanted my birthday cake to be brought to me in the comfort of my warm furry blanket sitting in front of the fireplace.



I have a half worried/half smile on my face because I want RM to hurry up and take the picture as the wax is quickly melting into the cake.



As soon as I make my birthday wish, Moe surprises me with a kiss on the cheek.

It's a perfect birthday.

I love it!!! Happy Happy Birthday! I actually had told my husband that what I would like most for my birthday is for him to take the day off and devote himself entirely to my happiness. My birthday is in ... 7 months. I feel very entitled on my birthday too! I love sponge cake as well. It's hard to find a good one. The long tall candles are so festive!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ----I think I will use the "it's my birthday" thing next time my birthday comes around. After all THIS WORLD WAS MADE BETTER by our entrance eh. (tee,hee)
Or do I have it mixed up ---THS WORLD WILL BE MADE BETTER BY MY EXIT.
I am easily confused.
That cake looks awesome.
My favorite is angel food cake with lots of whipped cream.
and Moe's kiss on your cheek ---priceless
