The first step was getting a pile of leaves...

Mr. G is constantly doing things for me and Baby G and so I really wanted to do something special for him on his birthday. His birthday wasn't until Sunday, but I decided to start early so Friday night Mr. G and I went on our very first date since Baby G was born. Mr. G's choice of restaurant was Applebees...which is ironic since that was the place of our very first date almost 5 years ago.
Then the last course...dessert....came with not just a present. It came also with a song.
Friday's date night went great but I still had more planned....and he didn't have a clue. When he pulled into the driveway Saturday evening he was shocked to see the people at our house and a bonfire in the backyard. He was so surprised that he actually stopped in the middle of the road with his mouth hung open. The perfect reaction to his surprise birthday party.
After playing in the leaves we cooked some hot dogs over the fire for a portion of our supper.... We also had chili, Hawaiian sandwiches, deviled eggs, fresh veggies, chips, and much more. After dinner we all headed outside....
I think everyone enjoyed themselves during Mr. G's surprise birthday party...I know I did. And based on the thank you and big kiss Mr. G gave me at the end of the night I think he enjoyed it too. At least I hope he did...because Lord knows he truly deserves it. Happy Birthday, sweetheart!!!

This last weekend we went up north to see family and to celebrate Mr. G's birthday, but we used this occasion to also dress the boys up in their Halloween costumes.
Finally it was time to put the boys in their costume. Any guesses on what Baby G will be?
And the best part is...he absolutely LOVES his costume. When we tried it on him for the first time at home he didn't want to take it off.
Would you believe me if I said I only showed you about half of the pictures I actually took this day? When you got two cute kids it is hard not to snap picture after picture. Well....Round 1 of Halloween is complete and I know for a fact that Baby G is looking forward to the next time he gets to put on his uniform.
