While in Iowa for Christmas, Grandma Murphy made a cake to celebrate Jake's birthday. Jake's Aunt Missy celebrates her birthday at the end of December too so her name was added to the cake and she and Jake blew out the candles together.
Christmas day not only had Jake opening the one present we had brought down, but that night he got to open his Iowa birthday presents as well.
Today is the real day. He requested eggs-over-easy, donuts, and juice. And please serve it in bed. But we weren't supposed to wake him up until after we had the meal ready -not as we were making it.
I guess he's worth the extra effort. We are trying to figure out how to spend the rest of his special day making him happy.
I'm wife to my best friend and help him raise our family of two kids whom we are so proud of! I'm a piano teacher who has arranged recorded a Christmas CD and had that same music published for other pianists! I love most new projects and especially enjoy learning new techniques and skills I've never tried in creating things around me.
