HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SWEET VALENTINE!!
Since everyday in the Hensley household is Valentine's Day, we take February 14 off to celebrate the birth of Nathan E. Hensley, the cutest, smartest, funniest boy I know.
We began the day with biscuits and gravy. Breakfast in bed is becoming a birthday tradition in our house. Then there were presents in bed, too!
Nate (covered up for modesty) and his loudmouth cat:
I bought Nate a blazer, a couple of shirts, and a sweater. He got several very nice (and very generous!) cards from family, a package from his Momma and Steve filled new pants and shoes and other goodies (and the most comfy pajamas for me!). Probably his best birthday pressie was a video of Owen singing happy birthday. So cute!
After breakfast and presents, we went to the Field Museum. It happens to be free every second Monday of the month. A birthday miracle!
Here are some more artistic shots with Nate's cool phone app:
After dinner, we met up with some friends at an old school bowling alley. Luckily, Nate knows how to keep score manually. Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures because I was too busy winning. :) Well, Nate won the first game; I won the second game. Nobody bowled well.
Then we came home and had cake. I attempted one of Nate's favorites, Boston Cream Pie. My baking skills could use some improvement, but you can't go too wrong with tons of sugar, cream and chocolate. And a cute puppy candle, of course.
Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day. I know I did. I just can't get enough of that guy! XOXO.
