Happy, Happy Birthday Boys

Today is a very special day in our family's life; firstly it is my sweet hubby's 60th birthday and it is also our second grandson's birthday. Mr. B turn 9 today; it was a pretty great birthday present to be born on the same day as my man. We celebrated the birthdays on Saturday evening with a big family party; there is nothing we like more than to be with our entire group.  Mr. B is quite a young man, full of fun and laughter as well as a very tender heart.  He loves animals, especially dogs(like his nana)and I can easily see him being a rancher or farmer when he is an adult.  There aren't enough words for me to describe my man, but hunk of burning love comes to mind loving, loyal, faithful, patient, fun are all words that sum up his character. I am so incredibly blessed by both these guys; well for that matter all the men in our family.
When I pondered what to get my man, it was an easy choice.  His cell phone was 4 1/2 yrs old and so outdated.  Several of our friends and family have Apple's newest & greatest, iphone and although my hubby isn't drawn to the newest electronics, this one caught his eye.  He loved how big the numbers/digits were and of course SIRI didn't hurt.  For those of you not familiar with this, it is a voice activated "assistant" that can send texts, get info, set calendar dates and reminders, and dial for you.  Typically, my hubby doesn't like me spending money on him and will often say things like "you spent too much or you shouldn't have" but when he opened his present-which was a pair of new shorts with the phone in the pocket, he was so excited.  I never heard a word about it and since he's had it, he's used the phone more than I've ever seen him.  Texts are no big deal now, and for this wife, it is wonderful to see how happy he is with his present.
Tonight we are going to see Jersey Boys with some close friends and it should be such fun.  Of course, I'm sworn to secrecy that it is his birthday but I think one other person knows.  My dear man has given me 34 wonderful years together and I'm thrilled to be able to celebrate him as well as Mr. B.
May we have many, many more together!

  1. Happy Birthday to your men. Hope their day is fun . Smiles to all, Susie

  2. Sounds like that was the perfect present! Well done!

    My hubby and our oldest son have the same b-day, as well! Funny how that happens, huh?

  3. Happy birthday to both your guys.

  4. I wish both of your sweet men the best of birthdays and many, many more. Sweet picture.

  5. Happy birthday to your wonderful guy! I can tell you right now my hubby would just LOVE LOVE LOVE that phone. I think maybe I would like one that could send texts by my just talking...didn't know there was such a thing, could make a texter out of me, haha...We both are married to 60 year olds!! Happy birthday to your gran son too! How wonderful and special for him to share this special day with your Grandpa...Have a good day Noreen

  6. Birthday wishes all around. You certainly need to text as the grands grow older. They don't talk much on their phones.

  7. Isn't it nice to be able to buy hubby something he actually would enjoy? Gift buying is so hard after a lot of years since typically there isn't anything either partners need or want. Congrats on a great idea and have a wonderful celebration!

  8. Such a sweet tribute!

    You will love, love, love Jersey Boys. I'd see it again. And again. (there is a smidge of bad language, though). Ijust felt like dancing throughout the whole thing, and for days following.

    Have a blast!

  9. Happy Birthday to a couple special men in your life. May they both have many many more!!

  11. Noreen- Happy Happy birthday to Your Man. He looks like a wonderful, happy guy. I am happy that he liked his cell phone. My kids keep threatening to bring me into the 21st century with my phone. Hey...it is blue tooth what more can I ask for. lol

    It is wonderful that your grandson shares your hubby's birthday. What a great present that must have been nine years ago- Blessings- xo Diana

  12. Happy Birthday to them both!

  13. Wishing both of your special guys, a very Happy Birthday, with many many more happy times.

  14. I wanted to say some important words!

  15. Happy belated birthday to your hubby! Isn't it such an awesome feeling to get THE perfect gift for that special someone? ;-)

    I'd love to get an iPhone (I have one that my sister gave me when she upgraded) ... I don't use it as a phone, so I connect only via wi-fi. With the traveling that we do, I'd really like to have some kind of smart phone with a data package ... and since I'm already familiar with the iPhone, I'd like to get one when I am eligible to upgrade my phone. I guess it will depend on how much a data package will cost me.
