Happy Birthday Daddy!

We had a great day as we celebrated Steve's birthday, the only bummer was that he had to work. I met Tracey and the girls at Krispy Kreme this morning to cash in some free donut coupons, I thought it would be fun to get one for Steve and take it to him at work. We also surprised him with a balloon that Cooper picked out. I love that he works so close and we are able to stop by at random times. He was about to walk out of the therapy gym and turned around and we were there. I tried out a new recipe I found on pinterest, Red Velvet Cheese Ball. It was killing me not to dig into this before he got home. You can find the recipe here. It is super easy and within that link is another link to a peanut butter cheese ball that I must also try.

Steve got off work early, he got home as Cameron was waking up from a nap. Seriously, if this doesn't just melt your heart nothing will.

I made his favorite; meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Okay, I didn't make the mashed potatoes as the picture shows. They are Bob Evans, but don't hate, they are delicious! I even broke out the leftover Chicago Bears napkins from Cameron's bday party.

After dinner it was finally time to break into the yummy goodness.!!!! It was amazing!!!! So, so, good!!!!!!!!!!

He had a really great day. We got him some Lowe's gift cards so we can start on some projects to the house that we weren't 100% in love with when we bought it. I loved going to see him at work and seeing his surprise when he saw us. I love doing the little things that help him feel just a little special on his special day.
