Birthday Time For Steve Again

As you know, December 24 rolls around every year and once again my dear husband turned another year older. I like to tease him for six months that I married an older man (the other six months we're the same age).

We met most of our family at Shang Yen between 5 and 5:30 (as they close at 7 pm due to it being Christmas Eve). Steve II wasn't able to come to the event and only Josh and Taylor came from their family. But, it was still a wonderful time of fun and food as usual.

Although we stress to our kids that we don't expect or need gifts, they really came up with a wonderful present this year. For Steve and I (Xmas) they went together and gave us $60 worth of gift certificates/cash to go to the Outback! How cool is that? That is absolutely my favorite restaurant.

Heather's family got their Dad/Grandpa a nice shirt and new zip up sweatshirt (which he was in great need of). Steve II's family got him a neat shirt and cap from Bass Pro! He's really into fishing. Josh's family got Steve a beautiful sweater which he wore already (tells you how much he likes it). Abby's family got Steve a gift certificate to go to Ohana's Steakhouse (with a note that it's for a double date to go with them!!!) Thank you to all of our wonderful kids and their families. It is greatly appreciated!!!! (and yum yum, can hardly wait)

Steve and I consider the heater that looks like a fireplace as our Christmas gift to each other. It is really cool to watch and does put out the heat. Now we have it in our bedroom and the first heater in the little bedroom.

If I were to daydream, (or win the powerball) I'd be checking into getting a led hdtv as a surprise for him. With both of us off work, we won't be getting anything else new until one of is working again.

We didn't linger at the restaurant as the roads were getting bad. We decided to cancel our Christmas get together since the roads were even worse. We'll be getting together again some time when it's a little nicer out. Hope you had a good Christmas! Halfmoon

I had fun! I'm glad that most of us got to go, but I missed Shelley and Stevie. Glad dad got stuff he needed and I'd say double date with us to Outback, but it'd be a double date with 4 kids. LOL

Not that I didn't say it at midnight on your voicemail, but happy new year mama! I love you!
