Michael's 40th


It's been two weeks now since Michael turned 40!! He didn't want a big celebration, so we opted for a date night, a trip to the symphony I snagged on Groupon, and a taco dinner.

Michael's family enjoys tacos on special occasions, and it is one of Michael's favorites too.

I think the kids have more fun on birthdays than the parents!!!

The cheesecake, made from the new Bon Appetit Cookbook was incredible! It's going down in the books!
Time around the dining room table is always the best.

Yes, the cake was really, really good.
Even Laura got a few bites and agreed.

The kids had made all sorts of handmade gifts. :)

Daddy is very loved around here.

Michael even had a surprise birthday cake at church, which was a fun celebration! And then the birthday parties came to an end and it was time for Michael to fly off to Japan. He's having a good time, enjoying the beautiful cherry blossoms, and also enjoying getting to know the churches where he is.

It looks like the perfect birthday celebration for your Michael! The cheesecake looks like a work of art - I'm glad it tasted as good as it looks! I can't believe I've never noticed before but we have the same everyday dishes - Naturewood! See? We are sisters! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog - it is good to be feeling like blogging a bit again!

Happy Birthday Michael! I hope he wont be away for too long Heather. I like the fact that you were wearing one of your own broaches :0) Your son sucking his thumb is cute too! The kids looking at Michael that way shows a little how they feel about him... Thank God for him Heather, you are all very blessed.
