Happy Birthday Tim!
Today was Tim's birthday! His biggest surprise was the additional party guest that showed up in the front parlor- Little Timmy dressed in Tim's own Cub Scout uniform! The story behind this is that a few years ago Tim found a trunk filled with his scouting uniform and crafts he had made in scouts along with their newsletters and his mother's Den Mother's uniform. For years, he has talked about one day finding a little mannequin to display the outfit on. Well, this is the great find I came across in Xenia, OH! For $7 I walked out of a thrift store with this guy in my arms! Mom managed to discretely have Tim take the trunk out of the attic and had him show her all of the treasures inside. She asked him to keep the trunk out till she came over again so she could read the newsletters and such! Well, all a ploy so that I could dress the guy today in his uniform! I had to roll the pants legs up quite a bit and the arms too but all in all, he was perfect!
Tim didn't stop talking about Little Timmy all night! I think he was quite touched and will enjoy seeing his little outfit on display!
He opened his presents and Garden Kitty made her usual appearance, checking out Little Timmy, the cake and the loot.
Tim also got his free ice cream today from Cold Stone Creamery! The guy was super nice and let me get about 1/4 of the amount in Raspberry Sorbet so I could share it! Free is just always good! Mexican dinner with family as a grand finale made for quite the perfect birthday!
Happy Birthday Hubby! Have many, many more!!!!!! I love you ferefer as we say....
