Steve's Big 4-0

My darling husband turned 40 on Halloween! How exciting. He's entered the exclusive club. Last year I told him we will have to start celebrating his birthday on a day OTHER than Halloween because with two little kids it is just too much. WAY too much.

So this year we did a simple dinner & cake on Halloween but then we had a party last night.

Man, it was fun.

We haven't had a party (really) since we moved into our house just over 5 years ago! Lame! So, I sent out invitations, we decorated the house for Halloween/old age - ha...and we had a party.

Michelle was actually drinking Pepsi out of her whiskey bottle. Keepin' it classy! :)
It was "costumes or not" which was fine with everyone. We got a few costumes, but not big deal. There was artichoke dip & taco dip & salsa & smoked salmon (which we forgot to set out - ah well). Steve's brother made homemade mozzarella & we had popcorn. Simple. Tasty. Fun.

The weather was beautiful yesterday - and it hasn't been beautiful for well over a week. So nice that we were able to have a fire going outside & a lot of our guests spent a lot of time out there (got a little cold towards the end!).

It was fabulous to have a house full of people. To have a CLEAN house where all the toys were hidden away. And to stay up late & sleep in in the morning. Ahhhhh.... (the kids were with my folks at a hotel - awesome!). It worked out great that it was "fall back" time too. Win-win!
