Birthdays!


Well, Adam had a birthday two weeks ago, never wrote about it, so I will share the fun festivities (after all, I had the pictures on my computer!).  The entire weekend was devoted to Adam - Saturday we celebrated with my family in Topeka, Sunday we celebrated with his family in Lawrence (and Mother's Day at the same time), and Monday we celebrated just the two of us!  I don't know who had more fun - Adam or me.  It was definitely fun planning surprises!


My mum baked a Devil's food cake on Saturday and Susan and I attempted to decorate it.  After we put the first layer of frosting, we realized we had no plan.  With that, we tossed around ideas and decided to make the flag of Haiti.  Problem - we had no blue frosting.  Well, we got creative and put a few drops of food coloring on the already frosted cake and took a fork to smear the food coloring around.  It worked!  Ta-da!  Jwaye Zanivese!


"It's a check!" - a classic quote from my li'l sister Debbie.  We made Adam follow suit when he opened the card from Grandpa Witt.

So, for Adam's birthday breakfast (on his actual birthday), I surprised him with waffles (I normally roll out of bed and set out the Raisin Bran, so this is big news).  I got to impatient, so he opened one of his gifts before leaving for work - The Star Wars Trilogy!
This is what stayed on our coffee table for two weeks prior to his birthday...I was just so excited for his birthday!  It was almost like having a Christmas tree!


In other birthday news, my dad turned the big 6-0 last Friday.  In honor of him, the siblings put together a video for him, documenting important events in his life and their influence on us.  Well, Adam was in charge of getting the videos together to send to the Gees for final editing, and we just laughed and laughed at these next ones.  My niece and nephew are so cute!  Enjoy!

Look at the pictures of Adam in this post. Then go to Amelia's blog and look at some of the pictures of her (like eating the block of cheese and pointing to the KU tv screen and smiling). The Buhler kids all make the same super excited smile for photos. I love it!

So cute! I love your niece and nephew's birthday wishes ... a-dorable.

Oh, and Ad-man, do you realize how many people have wives that make waffles for them and have their presents out two weeks ahead of time? Joel sure doesn't. I made him walk the dog before I even got out of bed. :)
