Happy Birthday Jonathan!

Yesterday was Jonathan's 29th Birthday! Only one more year till the big 3-0! Oh no! :) Friday Jonathan and I went out to Abuelo's to celebrate. Of course we gorged ourselves with yummy Mexican food, then they gave us a free dessert so we had to squeeze that in too!

Saturday we spent the afternoon running errands. (I had to run to Hobby Lobby while the Home Accents and Wall Decor were 50% off so I could find some decorations for my new office!) Then Jonathan's mom, sister, and nephew drove in from Louisville to go to dinner with us to celebrate. Of course the UK game had just let out, so all of the restaurants were packed! So we ended up going to Ruby Tuesdays and had a bad table, bad service, but at least the food was good.

Then we came back home and had cake and opened presents! I always order our cakes from Tinker's Cake Shop. (If you remember from Billie's shower.) Last year I asked them to do a golf bag with argyle on the sides (J loves argyle). This year I had no ideas, so I told them to just do the same thing as last year. Well they called me back the next day and said that they would like to do a fondant golf ball on top of the cake so it's different from the cake from last year. (This is why I love this place. It's a husband and wife and they know us by name. Their show room is gorgeous and their cakes are delicious!) Anyway, I told them to do whatever they'd like!

This is what they came up with:

It was so cute! We all loved it!
This is last year's cake.
Here's Jonathan and his nephew.
This year has been a trying year for us, but we have come out stronger for it. This time last year we were both in a completely differerent jobs than we are this year. I'm excited to see where we will be next year at this time!

Belated Birthday Wishes to Jonathan! What a cute cake... both years! Sounds like you had a full and fun weekend. :-)

Can't wait to see what wonderful things God has in store for you both in 2010! You both have been through a lot but God has really stretched and grown you through it all. I'm sure He is well pleased in your faithfulness.
