Three Cheers For The Birthday Boy

Gordy had his birthday last week.  

He turned 42  (see the four candles on the top and two on the bottom?)

There were two back-to-back hockey practices and a soccer practice on Gordy's actual birthday, so we celebrated the day after.  There was cake and there were presents:

Josie made Gordy a toy hockey game for his desk:

And Georgia made Gordy some clay items and a framed photo of herself:

Henry hadn't prepared any gift but after watching his father open the two presents from his sisters, Henry left the room for a few minutes and returned with this:

A pickled pepper, beautifully wrapped in kleenex:

Boy, did Josie think that was funny:

After the present-opening, the girls treated Gordy to a birthday wrestle:

Followed by a performance in the basement:

Georgia and Josie had been practicing a dance to preform in Gordy's honor for the last few days:

They even dressed in costume:

The dance was very sweet and Gordy was pleased.

We had another weekend of soccer and hockey, including having the parents of one of Henry's hockey teams to our house for a parent party/meeting.  I didn't take any photos, although I should have - my house was REALLY clean.  I spent the entire day, by myself, dusting, vacuuming and putting things away.  Gordy took all three children to one soccer game and then lacrosse try-outs for Georgia and Henry.  I'm pretty sure I got the better deal.
