Celebrating Mike

We had a fabulous day celebrating Mike's birthday. I made his favorite breakfast - Peanut Butter and Jelly stuffed French Toast, his favorite sandwich for lunch - Steak Sandwich, and then I tried a new recipe for dinner - Cauliflower soup

Lots of family called and wished Mike a Happy Birthday which only added to the wonderful day!

Then it was time for presents. This year Mike didn't tell me what he wanted for his birthday so it was hard deciding what to get for him. Since he has become such a big chicken farmer, I got him an egg incubator.
A few months ago Mike was helping with sawing some wood and the person he was helping had this really cool tool that basically left a chalk line when measuring with it. That day Mike mentioned that he had to have one, so now he does :-)

Mike always wears an undershirt with his dress shirts but he is always mentioning that the undershirt is not long enough and it comes untucked all the time. I did some research on the internet and I guess this is a huge problem that alot of men have. I found some comments from men that said there was this one type of undershirt that was made 2-1/2 inches longer than most. I love the look on Mike's face when he opened this gift. Just priceless!
When we started looking into having having chickens Mike started visiting Back Yard Chickens site and they sell these really cool t-shirts that say "My Pet Makes Me Breakfast" He has always liked it but never got one for himself. Since we have chickens in our back yard and they do give us eggs to enjoy at breakfast I got him the t-shirt.

Mike is very special to me and I just wanted to show him how loved he is!
