Aaron Turns 32!

While technically his birthday isn't until today, we celebrated it with his parents last Saturday. It was an enjoyable visit. The kids always love going to grandma and granddaddy's house, and they're even more on board when there's cake involved. This was also the Little Man's maiden voyage to their home.
We got there mid-morning and spent the day with grandma while granddaddy was at work. We ordered Chinese take-out for lunch from a place just down the road from their house. They had a few different types of tofu to choose from (the birthday boy has become quite a fan of the stuff) so we got sesame tofu and tofu with mixed vegetables. Delicious, as always.
After granddaddy got home, we ate dinner. Aaron wanted my version of Wendy's Chili. It turned out great. Then it was time for cupcakes. The kids were so excited they couldn't contain themselves.
At Aaron's request, I made mint chocolate cupcakes. I've never done anything mint flavored before so I'm glad they turned out and that it was just what he wanted. Even the kids loved them (I wasn't fond of anything minty as a child). In fact, the mint icing was all the Charmer ate. I'm glad they were a big hit with everybody.
Aaron also got a griddle for his birthday. He has been wanting one for a long time! He makes us pancakes every Sunday morning for breakfast and it takes him a long time to cook them one-at-a-time with our small stovetop griddle. This Sunday, he was able to make all of the pancakes and even sit down and enjoy them with us.
Last year had its ups and downs (pertaining to the children), so I hope this year is an especially stress-free one for my dear husband!
