Happy Birthday Jordan

My boy, Jordan, had a birthday this year on Thanksgiving.  Poor guy, this happens to him about every 7 years.  So we decided to celebrate a day early so he could still feel important.  I bought 3 large Papa John pizzas and some drinks and we celebrated at home this year.  It's always a good time too when the grand kids come over.  They entertain all of us.  I'm so lame sometimes and forget the simple basics like candles to put on the cake, and ice cream to go with the cake.  Seriously, who does that?  So, we improvised with the candles and pulled out a number 4 and a number 6 (from when I turned 46) and wrote a 2 on the back of the 6 so we could get a 24.  It's a good thing Mark made the cake because that may have been forgotten too.  My only excuse is having to host the Thanksgiving dinner this year and worrying about everything associated with that.  We skipped the ice cream and ate the super yummy carrot cake that Mark has perfected the art of making.  Seriously, it's so good.  He made one once for a scouting fundraiser in the ward and it brought in $110 dollars because everyone was bidding on it.  Part of his secret is the way he does the frosting and also you have to chill the cake and eat it ice cold.  Super yummy!!

 Jordan opened his gifts, which were all things he had asked for from the health food store.  He has been working out and gets all kinds of supplement stuff there so me and Cooper took the list of things he requested and got him all the goods he was wanting.  Keep pumping that iron, Jordan, you buff boy!
Oh, and Happy Happy Birthday cute boy!
