Today is Veteran's Day.
It is also my husband, Jim's birthday.
He is a veteran.
So - two celebrations in one!
Here he is blowing out his candles. Okay. I lied. Here he is PRETENDING to blow out his candles.
See, here's the story. I put the candles in the cake, my sister lit them for me. She called Jim over, I stepped away to get my camera. He walked over, leaned over, blew the candles out and started to walk away! My family all yelled, "Wait! Wait! We didn't even sing Happy Birthday!"
So my sister re-lit the candles. We sang Happy Birthday. I had my camera all ready. Then my brother yelled, "Hey, the Bears scored again!" (He was standing between the kitchen and the family room with his eye on the Bear's game.)
I turned my head for just a second, and you guessed it, Jim blew the candles out A SECOND TIME, and I wasn't ready!
He didn't look like he wanted to blow them out the third time, but he was patient enough to pretend that he did.
So there you have it.
Jim is not one for making a fuss on birthdays.
I oughta know. He never does on mine! He thinks we should go to the store and view birthday cards - and that would be the same as buying one! Why waste money on a card?
But I love this big guy with all my heart!
Happy Veterans Day to all who have served and are currently serving. We have YOU to thank for our freedom!
