The better half's birthday

Tomorrow, my wonderful husband gets one year older!  Actually, he will only be one day older than he is today, but tomorrow is that official change-of-age day!  He'll be 46.  Yep, he's a year younger than I am, and he loves to remind me of it, too! 

We took him out for dinner this evening since our daughter has to work tomorrow.  We are saving his "birthday cake" for tomorrow... but it's not a cake!   My family doesn't usually ask for the normal birthday cake.  It might be Turtle or Oreo cheesecake or homemade cinnamon rolls or French Silk Pie!!!  My hubby loves coconut so he is getting a Coconut Cream Pie! 

Here's his card...
It says "You're mine... hook, line and sinker!"  I obviously pressed the stamp too much!  Hard to tell when stamping with Versamark. :/  The front is 'fun' but the inside is more romantic!

Now that's sweet :) And we younger spouses are obligated to remind the older ones of just how old they are ;) My hubby teases me about no longer being a child bride, and I remind him that he's almost 10 years older than I am....

Beth said...

How stinking cute is this and that sentiment love it.
