Happy Birthday, Big Daddy!

Let's not forget Aaron's birthday this year - which was back on Sept. 4th. I tried hard to make it a little special for him, which involved not blogging (much) all day and trying to get the house as clean as possible, especially our bedroom and bathroom. I also tried to get him everything on his list, even though half of it he already ordered for himself from Amazon. He got a new electric razor, 2 movies (Casino Royale & Sneakers), an ASU hat, a new black coat (Thanks, Mom!), a great ASU camping chair (Thanks, Bairns!), and an awesome ASU trashcan (Thanks, Will & Missy!) And after all that, my Mom watched the boys so we could go out to dinner at the Oasis Dining Room at SCC, which was pretty much paid for by the gift from Aaron's parents (Thanks, Bob & CJ!). Considering Aaron still had to work, I'd say it was a pretty good year for him. Feel free to leave your own comments, Aaron.

Oh, let's not forget that a couple days after his birthday we went to dinner with his friend, Arden, and wife Tanya. We had great Thai food and they generously paid. Thank you! Then we came back to our house to discuss baby stuff (Tanya is pregnant with their first) and have yummy cake. I did a fancy one for Aaron this year at his request, Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake. The recipe is from Gourmet Mom on-the-Go.

Happy belated birthday, Aaron. You look so mature for 25! Hee hee.

The cake looks gorgeous, Tara.

Happy B-day Aaron! I don't think I'll call you an old man cuz I am just one year younger, and that would make me an old woman in a year! That was a super yummy cake!
