I'm behind on blogging.
October 22nd was Michael's birthday. He'd been working 12 hour shifts for the entire week because of something going on here on base and we were pretty sure he'd have to work 12 hours on his birthday as well. Lily and I were kind of bummed because last year Michael was in Louisiana for his birthday and we really wanted to be able to spend time with him. Well, we got lucky! The day before Michael's birthday, he and his co-workers finished working after about 6 hours and Michael was done for the weekend! Woohoo!! We didn't have a ton planned for the day because we'd anticipated Michael being at work but we were happy to be together. Instead of a cake, we made chocolate cupcakes with a reese's peanut butter cup inside with peanut butter frosting. They didn't look to pretty but they sure did taste good! Michael is always so easy going and grateful for anything that others do for him. We love you Mikey!!
