It's Joe's birthday! Unfortunately he had to go to work and couldn't spend the whole day with us, but Charlie, Lily and I used the time he was out to prepare a birthday surprise for when he got home. The babies and I (with a little help from Nana, who visited us this morning) baked Daddy a cake (which was really a pan of his favorite treat - Kandy Kake bars), blew up balloons and hung up a birthday banner. When Daddy got home the three of us were waiting in the kitchen for him, all ready to party! Charlie and Lily gave him the special cards they had picked out for him, then they helped Daddy blow out the candles. Last year Joe's parents and I threw him a huge surprise 30th birthday party. I know what he wished for at that party when he blew out his candles, and this year those wishes come true were right there to help him celebrate! Happy birthday, baby! I love you so, so much. You are the best husband and father I ever could have hoped for.
Charlie and Lily wore shirts to let Daddy know how awesome he is! Lily's says, "I love Daddy and Daddy loves me" and Charlie's says, "My Daddy Rocks!"
