I told you this was birthday season at our house, and today is the big man's birthday, My Dad. He probably won't ever even read this, but I just wanted to take a minute to wish him a happy birthday. My Father is one of the smartest, most loving, hardest working people that I know. Somehow the brains in our family's gene pool didn't quite make it my way, either that or I didn't study as much as my Dad, probably a little of both, but they don't make them like my Dad anymore. My Dad worked hard his whole life for his retirement, and now I think he's enjoying what he does now more than what he did to get there. He's technically retired, but since he retired he and my mother lived and served three years as mission president's for our church in the Canary Islands (Spain, Las Palmas), and now he works tirelessly in the Missionary Training Center in Provo teaching and helping new missionaries. I'm so glad the he can now put his hard working skills where his heart truly lies, in teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. Happy Birthday Dad! We love and miss you and will make you a belated birthday dinner as soon as we move!
Now my Dad is not a big sports fan, something he never really had time for, but I thought you'd like to see my Super Bowl cupcakes. I said I wasn't going to make anymore cupcakes for a long time, but my friend Wendy asked me to make some for the Super Bowl, so what Wendy wants Wendy gets, and I decided to use my red velvet cupcake mix that Liz and Stephanie gave me for my birthday. Of course I had to add a little this and a little that to the mix, and hopefully they turned out well (I'm only going to eat one and I'm saving it for the game so I haven't tried them yet). They are red for sure, and that is all intended to cheer on our very own Arizona Cardinals, go Cards! I thought they needed a little something else so I made these little flags to top them off, kinda cute if I do say so myself.
Speaking of Wendy, last night we decided last minute to go see the movie New In Town since we share a common love for Mr. Harry Connick Jr. And can I just tell you how much we both loved this movie. So every review I've seen of it is horrible, but reviews aside, I found it witty, hilarious, and sweet, and the only complaint I had was having to look at Renee Zellweger's botoxed face so close up. Seriously, she did a great job, played her part well, but come on with the botox already.
