I Wonder Background

I'm married to an old man....

Haha! Poor Jeff! He was teased relentlessly yesterday on his birthday. What a good sport. For the record, I was the most kind to him. I can see my 40th off in the not too distant future, so I knew I would pay for anything I did. I was nothing but nice. We started the morning out with one of his favorite breakfasts and then we watched a little video I had put together for him. He opened a few gifts from and the kids and I and then he headed off to work. When he got to work, he was greeted by this hearse parked in the parking lot. The road that runs in front of our office, is a state Hwy and the main street of Rexburg. So there were lots of people that knew it was Jeff's birthday!
Once inside the office, he was welcomed by a bunch of decorations. The girls at the office had hung streamers from the ceiling. They had black balloons and this RIP coffin decorating the reception area. They had also blown up a picture of Jeff from Halloween a few years back when we dressed up as an old man and woman. (I made sure they cropped me out!) He didn't notice the pictures until after lunch because they were hanging on the patient's side of the check in counter.

Here are the culprits! Notice they are all dressed in black. Jeff didn't notice this until after lunch when they pointed that out to him. I think he was flustered by all the "old man" gifts he kept getting throughout the day.....things such as prune juice, a magnifying glass, a cane with a rear view mirror, a "prescription" for Viagra, etc.

Since the hearse was parked in his normal spot, he parked his car on the side. He didn't know that they had put these signs on the side of his car that said, "HONK, It's my birthday." He kept commenting about how people kept honking as they drove by and he thought they were honking for the hearse. He actually didn't notice the signs on his car until he walked out of a store this morning on his way to work. Too funny!

I can't figure out why the license plate on the hearse said, "REPENT." Hmmm.....

They made this "Old Fart" t-shirt for him and made him wear it around for a while. He was a good sport all day.

All in all, we had a nice day. We took the kids to Jaker's in Idaho Falls for dinner last night. My parents and little brother, Braxton came, too. It was yummy, as usual. I'm so thankful for Jeff. He is such a good dad. He is my best friend and I love him so much! I can't wait to spend the next 40+ years with him!
