Tom is 42!

This week Tom turned 42. The boys made his cake all by themselves. It was chocolate with chocolate funfetti icing. They added the sugar letter decorations to spell out "Happy Birthday Dad 42" and put the candles on in the shape of a 4 and a 2. Tom loved it.

He also loved the special gift they gave him...

They took a baseball and wrote "To the Best Coach/Dad in the World!" on it and signed both of their names. Then they put it in a case for him to take to his office. For dinner, we had chicken & dumplings. Yes, in August heat. But, it was Tom's birthday so it was his pick. I'm not sure it beat out the year we had chili out at the picnic table or not!

Birthdays are fun in our house!

Happy Birthday, Tom! That is really cool that the boys made his cake. But that gift is the best!
