Happy Birthday Ken!

Saturday was Ken's birthday. I decided to celebrate by having birthday week. Starting on Monday, every night I cooked one of Ken's favorite meals for dinner and he got a little present and a candle to blow out. He was able to have Friday off work, and although he spent a good part of his day trying to renew his driver's license at the DMV, it was nice to have him around. For his birthday we went to lunch at Red Robin (they send you a coupon for a free meal on your birthday) and then got a babysitter and went to a Christmas party at a friend's house that evening. He got some nice presents from both of our parents as well. Instead of cake, Ken got a cherry pie. Oh, and just to share some new found wisdom, sticking wax candles into a hot pie is NOT a good idea. Happy Birthday Ken, we love you!

The cherry pie! I even whipped him up some cream for it, yum yum!

Ken and Abe's favorite way to spend time lately, sitting in the rocking chair reading books together. The little dog Abe is holding is his new best friend. He loves to carry "dogger" around. I think it is adorable.
