Cha-cha and I baked carrot cake from scratch for The Husband's birthday on this day last year. Carrot cake is his favorite, actually I think it's become a toss up between carrot cake and my go-to chocolate cake. Anyhoo, he loves carrot cake, so carrot cake it was. With thick yummy cream cheese frosting (see Cha-cha lick the spoon -yum).
The children gave him a jar of mixed nuts with a personalized label for his desk at work. We all had a chuckle when The Boy added a padlock to the jar's latch. He also got a pair of Tevas and a couple of sweet handmade cards.
We're missing him today as he's away for work. It's the big 4-0, too. Crazy big birthday to be away for. Luckily he's near two of my sisters and their families so they're helping him celebrate. We look forward to our chance to celebrate with him, we'll have to do something even nuttier when he returns! Happy Birthday to the best husband and Dad around... or not around!♥ XOXO
