To my wonderful husband. I really didn't forget his birthday. We had a big bonfire/party and I spent every minute getting it all together. So now I have a little spare time to sit down and show you our party. We had so much fun. We really weren't calling it a birthday party. We usually have a bonfire in the fall and this year there just wasn't enough time.
A lot of guys from Jim's job were invited and all but one came. Of course, the men stayed outside by the fire while the women huddled in the kitchen. I had to force myself to go out in the 29 degree weather to get these pictures. But I did not stay out long. It was actually warm by the fire.
This picture is a little funky because of the fire fumes. This is Joe and his wife Crystal and Steve. They all work with Jim.Jim was nice and toasty. Chris is the one sitting beside Jim. He is an intern and he is graduating and has accepted a job back where his parents live. He was funny. Notice he has on flip flops. Needless to say, he came and huddled in the kitchen after a short time. Beside Chris is Don, Jim's boss and then Brett. Brett used to work with them but went to another company.
This is another guy that works with Jim. His name is Kevin and he came alone. His wife didn't want to come out and freeze her rear end off.
Zane loves fire and stayed outside until it was time for him to go bed. He kept a stick in his hand the whole time.
Now if you are offended by boobs, do not go any further. I made this cake for Jim. I thought it turned out pretty cute. But no one even took a bite. So we have it in the freezer.
There were not very many pictures of the girls. I'm not sure why I didn't take them but Jim's friend, Connie (who is Swedish) took a couple. Here is one of them.
We had good food and good friends and we had a really good time. We are trying to plan another one after Christmas and hopefully the people who didn't get to come, will get to come in January when things are not quite so busy.
Jim, I'm not sure I even told you Happy Birthday because I was so busy. So Happy Belated Birthday and I love you!
