for most of the holiday week and our celebrating, my camera was tucked away. but i managed to get a few shots of the birthday celebrations.
mark's birthday fell on thanksgiving this year, so we celebrated it a day earlier. the little one and i got his presents and cards ready, made him chocolate chip pancakes, espresso, and bacon, let him sleep in (he slept really late!), and then delivered him breakfast in bed.
we had a nice, relaxing day and then i prepared his requested dinner for some guests. he decided to wear his suit to dinner and had us all feeling rather underdressed! the little one entertained everyone by doing sketches of each person (she's really good...check out the one of mark!). we ended the evening with his favorite flourless chocolate torte and gelato.
he is determined to live to a 120 (like, REALLY deteremined...) so i guess we'll have many more years of celebrating in the future!
here are some photos of the day...
