Bruce's birthday celebration

Since Bruce typically works from home on Wednesdays, and his birthday was on a Wednesday this year, we were able to celebrate with him off and on all day long, which was fun. Once again, the kids really got into the birthday celebration spirit, and made "presents" for Daddy all day long (my favorite was when David wrapped up Bruce's belt and gave it back to him like it was something new and special). They each wrapped a real present for Bruce, too, and when it was time to open presents, they had him sit on the "throne" (our recliner) and covered him with a blanket (not really sure why, since Bruce is always too hot anyway, but he cooperated very nicely nonetheless!).
This one was wrapped by David. It was actually quite respectable!Abigail wrapped this one all by herself. I gave her nice tissue paper, but she decided to use the shopping bag instead...Daddy and his loot
After a birthday dinner of lasagna etc, we went to church and then came home to enjoy his birthday dessert of strawberry shortcake!
