It's a Birthday Celebration

Guess who has a birthday today. I'll give you a few hints.
He is an employee of an Ice Cream company.
He's the father of 4 children (a few of them have probably forgotten his birthday today:).
He's the owner of dear Mr. Bettis (who thinks everyday is one Big Party).

I'm sure you've figured it out. The birthday guest of honor is none other than the DH.
I won't tell his age except to say he's half a century + 1.
LOL..........sneaky aren't I?

Frugal living is still a way of life here these days.

We agreed to no gifts until the economy improves so we're planning a game of scrabble or yahtzee tonite.

This ball of yarn was calling my name. So I cast on for the Ishbel shawl. I'm now to the lace part and I'm lovin' this knit.

Of course it's sunny out which means Mr. Bettis thinks it's necessary to run in and out, in and out, in and get the picture.
He can't wait to spend quality birthday time with his owner and I can't wait for him to spend time with him either. He can get up and down to let Mr. B in and out all evening.
After all, it's time spent with man's best friend.
What better gift could he possibly have? ..............LOL

Happy birthday to your hubby. Yes it sounds like Mr Bettis bonding time is the perfect frugal activity to celebrate his birthday.

Happy Birthday to the DH!! Mmmmmm, German Chocolate, I haven't had any of that in years & I love it! Especially the frosting! LOL

Mr. B thinks every day is a party? Come on, we know that's not true, he's such a serious boy. SNOL!!!!

Happy birthday to the man who brought Mr. Bettis into all of our lives. I'll have to send him a do-it-yourself German Chocolate cake kit. (Nope. I won't tell. You'll just have to wait until I get around to getting it.)

And how dare you fix a cake Mr. B can't enjoy!?

Happy Birthday, Mr. Gypsyknits! Oh, btw, did I mention I was stopping in? German Chocolate cake is worthy of a road trip. ;-)

Your Ishbel looks gorgeous! I've gotten to the lace part on mine and haven't managed to screw it up yet. Yay! snol
