Birthday Photos

Since we were at the Ward campout on Mark's birthday, I bought a cake, smuggled it into the freezer, and managed to get it there without him seeing it. The camp's close proximity to our house (15 minutes) made this possible.

I decided to get the individual candles - thought this would be funny because there were so many of them!

But the joke was on me, because they were burning down and the wind was blowing them out before we could get them all lit . . .

Didn't help that he got a phone call when it was about time to blow them out!

Here he is NOT blowing them out. . . he is surveying the mess that the melted wax made all over the cake!
I'm pretty sure he had a good birthday!

Sounds like something that would happen to me -- just trying to tease your husband a bit and it completely backfires!

I feel like an idiot that it's taken me so long to get over here!! That's probably the REAL reason I lost a follower or two -- it takes me forever to reciprocate their kindness.

I'm sooo like that too... I love having a candle for every year... but then it takes another year to light them all!!! :)

How funny! My sense of humor backfires on me occasionally as well. It looks like you all had a great day!

I am a fan of the many candles. However, I see that it has logistical problems :-)

perhaps next time you can light them with a blowtorch? maybe that will go faster :-)
