Well, since 40 is "Over the hill," I guess 39 makes you at the apex?
His birthday was on Saturday and I had moments where I wondered if he would have rather worked all day than been at home all day with some cranky people (myself included, I guess . . .). But I tried to do a few things to make the day a little special for him . . .
Like I made him cardamom-cinnamon rolls for breakfast (I left on my run as they were in the oven :). I encouraged him to get out and exercise. And . . . maybe that was all?!
We didn't do a special birthday dinner/dessert because we went to his work party that evening. I think Ben actually enjoyed it. We watched one of his favorite Christmas movies that night - A Christmas Carol (the Jim Carrey one).
Here are the very few pictures I got:
Happy Birthday Ben.
