happy birthday dave!

i planned on doing a nice tribute to dave on his birthday. it was january 20th, so you can guess how well that went. hopefully dave doesn't doubt my love for him since he didn't get his birthday tribute post. i did try to make it a special day. i snuck away while he was showering to get "birthday" donuts and then he opened his present before he went to work.
please note the winnie the pooh gift bag
. not every 29 year old is lucky enough to score one of those (or most other 29 year olds don't have such a cheap wife who just uses a leftover bag from their one year olds birthday).

dave had been hounding me for weeks for clues about what he was getting and i wouldn't tell him a thing (because i stink at giving clues and always give it away and then i am bummed because he figured out what his present is. he knows this about me which is why he asks for clues). i often struggle to know what to get dave for presents but i was so excited about this one. i knew he was going to love it and i couldn't wait for him to open it. i had a jedi robe made for him (yes, he is a total star wars geek) and as i expected, it was a hit!!

that night we went out to dinner for burgers and fries at larkburger (yum!) with dave's family

logan will never complain about a dinner that is solely made up of fries (he gets that from his dad)

after dinner we went back to our house from brownies and ice cream. i had meant to stop on the way home from dinner to get candles and totally forgot. so dave had to blow out a "1" birthday candle (also leftover from logan's party). man, i kinda suck!

getting a little help blowing out all those candles!

even though it is over a week past his birthday i still can't help but give a little "tribute" (because he sure deserves it). i am so grateful dave was born 29 years ago. he is truly my best friend and has brought so much happiness and laughter into my life (lots and lots of laughter). he is hardworking, the best dad, a wonderful priesthood leader in our home, he's always working to improve himself, he knows random facts about lots of different things (i learn lots from him), he has great dimples...and eyes...he's just really good looking :), he is patient, he helps around the house, he lets me put my cold feet on him (not really, but i do it anyway), he puts up with me always running late (even though it drives him crazy), he's okay having cereal if dinner doesn't turn out (or just doesn't happen), he is supportive and always makes me feel loved. of course there's so much more, but i figure that is sufficient for the blogosphere (maybe more than sufficient, i might have lost some readers before the end).
i love you david james! you're my favorite and my everything!
