Happy Birthday Erik!

On December 13th my wonderful husband Erik turned 28.
I'm sure glad he was born.
He's an amazing husband and father and I love him a lot.
So, Happy Birthday!
(Even though you don't read my blog.)

It was on Monday, so he still had to work, but his boss' wife brought him a muffin and a cup of coffee. The kids pulled together some of their "monies" and wrapped up 39 cents for him. I found him him the Pocket Ref, which is perfect for him. He's been totally into trigonometry lately, with angles and how all the numbers of hip roofs work out...he tries to explain it to me but I still don't get it. I'll stick with my simple math required for balancing the checkbook and quilting and be amazed by his intellect. I made a turkey dinner and applesauce cake with butterscotch meringue for desert. The only birthday candles we had where the number ones we've used for the kids but luckily we had a 2 and two fours so I made a plus sign out of toothpicks and we had 24+4 emblazoned across his cake.

I'm so glad I get to spend my life with this wonderful man. He does an amazing job leading and providing for our family.
I like him.
A lot.

and that butterscotch meringue looks awesome-- I've never heard of butterscotch meringue before.

Basically it was egg whites, brown sugar and a little bit of lemon juice, I'm not sure how that makes it butterscotch but that's what it's called.

Chelsea said...

does it taste like butterscotch?

ED's Wife said...

Eh...not really...but it was good nonetheless.

Hmm... interesting. I'm going to have to try it one of these days.
I like coming back to your comments to see your reponses. We could have a whole conversation here ;-)
