Day Fifty Eight 2011

My hubby Neil celebrates his 60th birthday on February 28, so of course his family got together (a day early) to make sport of him and inflict torture on him to mark this major milestone in yet another completed trip around the sun.

His airplane-shaped birthday cakes were made by my daughter's good friend and consummate cake baker, Tammy, who, I believe, outdid herself this time. Kudos to Tammy! That cake was to die for. And for those of you who don't know my hubby, his passion (in his old age) is building and flying remote controlled airplanes, thus the airplane cakes.

No, that is not Elton John in those glasses. That is hubby Neil blowing out his candles while grandson Elijah sounds the trumpet and granddaughter Shelby ends the birthday song with a flourish. Hope he made a good wish. Probably had something to do with airplanes.

He got lots of birthday cards and what this family calls "flat presents" meaning gift cards/cash. Neil enjoyed receiving them all and had a great time celebrating the BIG SIX O.

Happy (almost) 60th Birthday, Neil! Wishing you all the good things you deserve on your birthday and every day. I love you!! (PS-expect more torture on your actual day of days tomorrow.....)

I'm glad Neil is such a good sport. Of course, you wouldn't last long in this family if you weren't! :0) Have fun torturing him tomorrow! Love y'all! Thanks for having us over.
