happy *late* birthday mike

i know it's late, but better late than never, right? mike had a birthday. yay! 2 days after christmas to be exact. and he's getting up there...closer to 40 than 30. scary. (he's 37 - wow.) i wanted to share a few pics of mike...and tell him how much i love him. mike's an amazing man.
just a few things:
*wrestling with his boys
*serving others
*use it up, wear it out, make do or do without (it takes a bit of convincing to get him to throw out old worn out clothes (or anything for that matter) and buy new ones!)
*kid at heart
*great cook
*cleaning out his closet or the garage or shed
*always full of surprises
*takes time for family
*great example
*always searching for the silver lining
*positive attitude
*it'll all work out.
and it has. he is wonderful and i love him so so so much. happy birthday, babe.
and now for a few pictures:
burning cake! (it really was only 10 candles: a group of 3 and a group of 7. there was no way i was putting 37 candles on one cake. fire hazard.)
making a wish
eating yummy cake!
