Happy 28th to my Personal Handyman

Although it's a little late, and things have been quite busy around here,
I didn't want to forget to publicly wish my "main man" a very happy birthday :)

His celebration a few weekends back started with our best friends
(my brother Mike, and his wife Karlie) at Cason's favorite celebration spot

The night was completed with small cakes from here...

...and then came the "BEST birthday present EVER!!!"
(HIS WORDS... by the way)

... Just in case you can't tell
(because most people have a hard time reading Cason's expressions)...
this look is saying a few things:

A: "Um... should I REALLY get excited, that there's an iPad2 in here, or is it just a new shirt in a used iPad2 box?

B: "Where did you find the $$$ for this?  Are we going to be able to make our car payment this month???"


okay, so maybe "C" was more MY interpretation... but still, it's kinda true :)

Case & Point...
Saving up for 4 months, secretly ... was TOTALLY worth it!

A special thanks to my big bro. Mike, for all the fabulous photos of the night.
He's not only a great brother, friend and photographer, but absolutely hilarious as well...

This was the victory "hand slap" line-up,
for such an awesome night spent with the cousins.
Mike always knows how to make a "could-be-sad situation"
(like leaving some of our favorite little people)
into a "fun event"... so as to not have any tears.

I love that about him.

And PS.  I don't think that I've seen these kids laugh this hard... EVER.
Family Rocks.

Thanks for the great night Mike and Karlie.
And Happy 28th, you Handsome Stud, you :)
It's gonna' be great!
