We also got a package from Stu's parents yesterday that had a brownie mix in it (and some shirts for Stu and I, thanks! :)). That became the "birthday cake" since we forgot we used the last cake mix we had on hand and I couldn't make him a cake. So we had Birthday Brownies! I feel like such a failure wife here though. I am normally the one who goes all-out for birthdays and holidays with themed decorations and appetizers, etc. Here, I can't take a cab without risking my son's life. To her credit, Sam offered to pick something up for me yesterday because she was going out, but by then I'd already figured out what i was going to do. I just can't wait to be able to drive and do things (GROCERY SHOP!!!) by myself.
Anyway, here are some pics from last night. Stu refused to let me take his picture since he came home and immediately put on a t-shirt and boxer shorts for the evening. He looked handsome though! We made the best of what we had to work with!
