Tanjobi Omedeto!

It's a bird?
It's a plane!
It's Super Gherk!

Michael turned 54 today - and we celebrated in style....Gherkin style.  ::snort:: It was actually a fairly normal day with the normal amount of work, school, drama and trauma....but we celebrated this evening.

Michael chose dinner at Dancing Tomato; we stopped to try to catch the Leonid Showers, and then it was home for gifts.

Stacia was excited to serve as, birthday elf.

Just a sampling of Michael's gifts.... a couple of books by Mark Buchannan
Arielle got him a superman costume - this is somewhat of a family joke as I have embarrassed Michael year after year with superman attire....but this takes the cake....and obviously he's happy to play along (witness the earlier photos). I love the kids getting in on the fun.
Two of Michael's vices in one compact package to enjoy for one day only - free of nagging.
Chocolate covered potato chips
Superman was I have moved on to snowmen....
Arielle made an ice cream cake yesterday....

We got a good laugh out of our singing....Michael said we're pathetic, but he helped us out.
Arielle begged him not to spit on the cake - so he didn't.

 Yes, a very fun birthday. We are blessed to have Michael in our lives, and it's fun to be sure he knows that - at least once a year.

Choosing Joy!
