I had the idea to print out pictures of Kevin's 40 years to put on his wrapping paper. However, this idea didn't come to me until it was too late. I couldn't find all the photos I wanted, so most of them ended up being more recent...and few... as my ink was running out, lol!
I didn't bother with a fancy cake as I knew I was gonna load it up with candles! Besides, I made two pies. (you'll see those in the slideshow~in my haste I didn't get them sealed well...oops!)
Sure is bright, eh? Took two of us to light 'em all!
My brother picked out this Superman gift bag, heh-heh...
I got him Gordon Lightfood tickets. I felt bad... dejavu... as for his birthday last year I surprised him with a trip to Kansas City to see Gordon there. I actually had something else picked out for this year's gift, and my mom emailed me the news of GL tickets going on sale this week! We'll be going in October at the Fabulous Fox Theater. Kevin didn't mind two years in a row, (whew)...he's excited!
This played on the radio in my car one day almost 10 years ago. I had to pull over and bust out crying. Long story, but this is when I knew Kevin was "the one".
I also got him this~ He likes to grind his own spices, coffee, and make smoothies. The Magic Bullets are still too exspensive. Well, guess I hafta take this back and bite the Bullet because the booklet on this dinky one says do not use to blend liquids or ice! HUH??
I'll post more on the town party and parade soon! Here is a slideshow of Kevin's birthday. You'll see how *mature* he is at 40, and I think it's funny he wrote 40 on his cup instead of his name. Thank you so much for his birthday wishes, y'all are so nice!
