Today was Matt's birthday. The kids wanted nothing more than to finish school as fast as they could, so they could help me bake him a cake.
Turns out, school was late. We didn't get done until about 3:00, so I decided that I'd let them make the cake. They were in charge.
They decided to make cupcakes, and they voted for chocolate.
I got them what they needed, but they did the majority of the work.
When it was done baking, the kids ran into our room and jumped on him until he got out of bed. (He works midnights - he's not lazy.)
He opened his gifts and I took him out for dinner, just us.
Happy Birthday Matt. I'm proud to call you mine.
