Matt is old(ish).

If you see Matt today, please wish him a Happy Birthday! As of today he is officially 40  years old and he's feeling some kind of way about it. 

For as long as I've know Matt (I'm pretty sure) he isn't the kind of person who wants a fuss around his birthday but because he was turning 40 I knew I had to do SOMETHING. Of course, Covid kind of killed all of the original plans I had been thinking about. Instead, when he asked his parents to take the kids for the weekend, I hatched a quick plan to celebrate when we dropped them off. I just didn't tell him ahead of time. 

I had my friend who had made my wedding cake make something very quickly for his cake and we picked it up on the way. 

I kind of love it and the kids thought it was totally hilarious. Luckily his brother was able to come out for dinner. 
Matt played a tea party game with Penelope and Lucy before dinner and I don't know why but it struck me as funny. 
The birthday boy with his cake after dinner. I wish I had gotten a picture of his face once he realized what all was going on. HA! 
One of my favorite pictures of him and all of the kids. This was right before he opened presents. His parents got him a jigsaw since his has officially gone to power tool heaven. I got him some games him and I can play, and then the kids got him a bunch of new shirts, a lot of his favorite candy, a new computer game, a new phone case since his broke, and some stickers or something he wanted. 
I remembered to grab a quick picture of us before we left. It was incredibly windy and a storm was literally passing through so we had to quick run through the rain and we looked a little rough once we got into the car. 

His mom took this one of all of us and Lucy's face is everything. She has the best facial expressions and I can't get over it. 

Today though we are going to have whatever he wants for dinner, I've got some cake for him, and his big present. I hope he has a good day at work. He works so hard there and then so hard at home. Later this week I'll talk about the weekend we had, just him and I, so he could "relax". LOL.

Aw happy birthday Matt! Izzy's coming up behind him, he'll be 40 in December. I always like to remind him how old he is, hehe.

Happy Birthday, Matt!! My dad's birthday is today too. :)

I LOVE that cake. Omg, so funny. The photo of you and him, and the one with him and all the kids are both fantastic. Love it!
