Hubby is Still Older Than Me!!

As I told y'all Friday, this weekend was a dusey for us around here!  I worked on a wedding and we celebrated Hubby's birthday! 

I thought I would share a few pictures from Hubby's birthday bash!

I had been so busy with Brittany and Jason's wedding that I forgot to make Hubby a birthday cake!  So I did what any other good wife would do and drove to Dairy Queen and got an ice cream cake!  The only choices they had was one with a cornucopia or one with peace signs on it...I went with the cornucopia--it matched my Halloween decorations!

John, Hubby's really good childhood friend, came over and helped get the party going!  Not only did he clean my carport--which I did give him grief for because I thought he had lost the back out of my car seat--but he cooked all the meat for everybody! 

His girlfriend Anita, was a great big help by watching the kids so Hubby and I could work on the wedding before the party!

Hubby's other buddy, Allen also helped get everything ready for the party.  He helped John with cooking the meat and moving all of Hubby's tractors and trucks in the front yard.

This year was a little tamer than in year's past!  But there was a moment that I thought we were going to have a visit from the sheriff!

Hubby, John, and Allen decided that they needed to blow up something.  Now I have to blame the blowing up on my son Knox.  He had made a homemade, hand held cannon-sort-of thing.  He was taking firecrackers and shooting acorns out of it!  (Please don't tell me how dangerous this is--I know-I'll have to do a whole post on the dangerous things my son gets into on a daily basis!)

The "big" boys decided that they needed to REALLY show Knox and Andrew (Allen's son and Knox's friend) what a big bang was!  The next thing we know those three--Hubby, John, Allen--had a 5 gallon bucket and were getting ready to shoot it off!

Now I'm not going to tell you what they did to do this, because I'm really not sure what they did!  All I can tell you is that the neighbors, who live about a fourth of a mile down, said their windows shook!!  The bucket went higher than the 50 year old Water Oaks in my front yard and the ground shook!

All I have to say it that we are lucky we have really good neighbors that don't call the law on us...

And never dare a bunch of guys, who think they are all still in their 20s and know how to use torches and gasoline, that they can't make a louder noise than you can!!

Happy Birthday to my sweet Hubby!!

You're still older than me...Ha, Ha, Ha....
