Happy 33rd!

We are quickly approaching our mid-thirties, and thankfully, Kevin's birthday comes before mine each year! I won't go into any details, but Kevin's birthday last year was pretty much the worst day of my life. It's unfortunate when horrible things come to fruition on good days. However, I decided that it probably wouldn't be the best idea to dwell on that, so we decided we should at least celebrate a little, even though Kevin couldn't care less. The kids were beyond excited to gather things around the house to give as gifts, which usually consists of candy, coins, and maybe some toys. The thought of buying a gift is absurd to them. They also feel they need to make a cake rather than buy one. I don't know where they come up with these crazy ideas. I don't make anything, and unfortunately, I'm all about convenience. I know what stresses me out, and I try to avoid these things. BUT, with my work schedule being a little less demanding these days, I thought it would be fun for the girls and I to make him something special. We decided to make reese's pieces no-bake cookies and some ridiculously good reese's pieces cupcakes thanks to pinterest. Kevin isn't all that interested in food, but he does like reese's pieces, so we just went with it. The goods all wrapped and ready to go. In case you were worried, I did get him a real present along with all of the goodies from the children.

All the kids with their Daddy. They adore him. And who are we kidding? A party for him is a party for them, so they were ecstatic all day and couldn't wait for the "party". As you can see, the term party is used quite loosely.

Anyway, we had a fun time making treats and taking time out of a busy weekend to celebrate Kevin's Birthday!

Happy Birthday Kevin, We love you!
