{happy birthday mama!}

Ok, so as promised, I am posting what we got my mom for her birthday...
unfortunatley for 99% of you, you're aren't going to be nearly as excited about it as I was, hehe. We usually give gifts without putting too much thought into them and because presents aren't what make a birthday, they've never been a huge priority. But this birthday was a little more special. It was my moms 60th...what a milestone!!

We met up for dinner at The Harmon in Tacoma...



the first thing Jacob saw was this...


go figure, instantly he had found his new favorite restraunt.




Steven ordered what he called "the best burger ever!"


here is the lovely couple :)


and here is the gift....
you're probably wondering whats inside
scroll down just a little more...


They had to open the boxes in order, top to bottom...

The first box had this envelope in it...
It was some cash for parking


The second box had this envelope...
It was some cash for dinner

The 3rd and final box had this envelope
It had 2 tickets to
Lion King on broadway at the Paramount!!!
I tried to make the tags as close to the "Lion King" theme as possible


So there you go...
that was my little surprise for her :)
They were thrilled and are anxiously awaiting their show date on the 10th. My good friend
Christy recently saw this with her mom and sisters and raved about it. That is what pretty much sealed the deal in me getting these for them. I had been hearing from people how much they enjoyed the show and since my parents go to musicals at least once a month, I thought it'd be right up their alley!
Jacob also brought her some flowers on Sunday at church and we made sure she got embarrassed by Pastor Ryan in front of everyone, hehe, that's my job!!

I must say, I laughed so hard at those of you who were emailing me with your guesses on what I had gotten...most of you guessed it was going to be a pregnancy test, sorry guys not this year!

Happy BiRtHdaY Mama
Thank you for everything you've done for us, you've taught us so much and are so thankful to have you in our lives...you're the best!
We love you so so so much!



Stay tuned for upcoming pictures of some adorable little babies and toddlers!!
We're still working on the bathroom, haha. We ran out of flooring and still havent picked out a vanity but we're ever so close :)
