Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Andrew turned 33 years old this past Wednesday, and has been celebrating ever since! On Wednesday night we went for a family dinner at the Olive Garden. We had such a nice time! Everyone was extremely well behaved, and ate really well. I think Ben could have eaten his weight in macaroni and cheese! When we got home, Andrew opened his presents and cards...

then we cut into the turtle cheesecake that I had made for the occasion. I think I may have overdone the toppings a little, but was it ever good!

On Saturday we were able to send the kids off to Grandma and Grandpa's for the night and took the opportunity to enjoy a far too seldom date night. We had dinner at Abuelos, a Mexican food restaurant which I think will now be a new family favorite, and went to go see the movie The Blind Side which was absolutely outstanding. We really enjoyed ourselves and plan to try to make more of an effort to have more dates this year!

Then to top it all off, the Cardinals gave him a nailbiting playoff victory today!

Happy birthday, Andrew. You are a true blessing to all of us and we love you so much!
