Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is Daddy's 32nd Birthday! In honor of his birthday, Libi and I baked him a chocolate chip pie and wrapped his gifts this morning. We then ran to Nana and Pop's house for our weekly visit.

We had a good time at Nana and Pop's house. Mommy even ran out to look for a purple bow and left Libi and Tobee alone with her great-grandparents. All went well because when I came back she was fast asleep. We left shortly after lunch so we could be home when Daddy arrived.

Daddy got home a little after 3 p.m. and he immediately opened his gifts. He got 2 very nice shirts from Nana and Pop in addition to 6 yummy cupcakes that Nana baked. Libi got her Daddy a photo shoot at JC Penney and 2 frames and Mommy got him tickets to the Police concert. We will be leaving the house shortly for our photo appointment-- we'll let you know how it went when we get home!

The photo shoot was nice, but the lady was working alone so we had lots of interruptions which didn't always sit well with Miss Libs. We got some beautiful shots though and have decided to make it a yearly tradition on Daddy's Birthday!

Afterwards we ran to Target and Ralphs for some light shopping-- when we finally got home it was 8 p.m. Mommy got right to work cooking, but we didn't eat until nearly 9--- sorry Daddy! Grandma and Grandpa Ippolito stopped by to wish Daddy a "Happy Birthday" during dinner and, of course, they wanted to see Libs who was also eating.

While we ate we watched "Happy Feet"-- this was Daddy's one request for his special day. It is a pretty cute movie (what we've seen so far-- Mommy began to fall asleep in the middle.)

We all sang to Daddy before digging into his chocolate chip birthday pie. Libi decided that Daddy should have a Star Wars themed birthday with a Darth Vader candle on his pie and Star Wars plates and napkins since Mommy won't buy him the lightsaber he wants.

After eating our pie we all went to bed. As part of his present, Mommy did all of the diaper changes in the middle of the night. Again we want to wish "Happy Birthday" to the greatest Daddy ever!
