Happy Birthday to Jarom!!!

SO-it's a little early...but my Jarom's b-day is this Friday, December 7th! (Also-my baby turns 9 months that day...wahhhhh) Anyhow, Jarom has a pretty unfortunate B-day with it ALWAYS falling on a FINAL EXAM day. Not to mention it being a few days before our anniversary and only a few weeks before christmas....He got totally jipped! Since I've known him he has spent his birthday taking some kind of exam, whether in undergrad or (for the last 3 years)...a 5 hour law school exam! That stinks:) We had an ice-storm on Saturday that permitted leaving the house or doing ANYTHING but staying inside and keeping warm...so I decided it was a perfect time (and the only time) to celebrate!
I made him a Texas Sheet cake and just to piss him off put the candles in the shape of a heart (things like that make him so annoyed:) He thinks anything sweet or romantic is LAME! ha ha ha....Jarom isn't really into sweets much....so I made him MY FAVORITE! hee hee...
Well....HE USUALLY isn't that interested in sweets...but this particular day I think stress of Finals got to him (I can totally relate honey)...because while I was making his big birthday dinner he was devouring a whole corner of his cake...BEFORE THE SONG...OR THE CANDLES! How rude.... looks pretty "ghetto" as my friend Suzanne would put it.....ha ha. I completed the celebration with my favorite version of the B-day song...the one we sing in primary every week!
"This month is such a special one....(most of you know it)". Jarom usually stares at me like he is confused at how I became this way in just 4 short years of marriage???
Happy b-day daddy....
I made him hold up some of his gifts like he was my 5 year old child. I don't know why I do this actually? I think it's just habit and instinct....I watched my mom for so many years do it with us....I do it and don't even realize! He didn't get anything too exciting from me and jax....just some clothes and movies. Oh-he always loves to get new Nike socks and lot of gum! He IS getting old.....boring. We watched the Grinch....and had a really enjoyable night! I love you jar.
