Brandon's 40th birthday party

Yes that is 40 candles!  I asked B what he wanted for bis 40th.  He said a book.  (If he does nothing short of flying in all my best friends or a cruise for my 40th he will be a dead man....I am thinking dancers and maybe a rapper or Dolly Parton or a HUGE party with a slide show.....NOT a book!)  BUT that is all he wanted!  Just a little party with his kids and a book.  We were supposed to go on a cruise with good friends of ours who were all hitting milestone birthdays but I think we moved that to January.  So he wanted a book.  sigh. Happy 40th. 
BUT, how do you argue with this guy?  Look how excited and happy he is to blow out his candles?  The kids were all excited to plan for his party and we were able to use our new picnic furniture from my parents!  We had a great time as a family.  I love that he is such a simple man and such simple things make him happy!
His brother and sister in law gave him pajamas!  LOVE IT!  He can ALWAYS use some good snuggy clothes!  (I love some stuff I can steal too....who's birthday is this?)
We cave him some LEGOS!  His birthday would NOT have been complete without some LEGOS and these were "Lord of the Ring" LEGOS!  (I didn't think they could get more geek after the star wars LEGOS but they did....and then he did....and I love him for it!)  Look at his face!  Half happy, half "I can't believe I got these" with a little bit "when is it appropriate to tear into a gift"?!?!?    He also got some new head phones for his desk (which were wrong.....don't ask me to buy technology....ever!)  and his book.  It was a political book.  I will never read it.  He keeps asking me to.  I won't.  snore.  Are their vampires in politics?  Don't answer that!)
These cutie pies had a great time at the party!  The big kids took the ladder and some blankets and made a "club house/death trap" out of the tree!  This is as far as I would let the littlies up! sorry!
Favorite picture of the evening!  Brothers.   We had a great time just laughing and chatting and watching the kids play outside.  We enjoyed our birthday furniture and were so happy that we got to have a relaxing evening with family over.

this was the last shot of the night.....Jamie trying to get some of Brandon's cake....there were some funnier shots that they made me delete because it made them look more like a "couple" and less like brothers!  NEVER a dull moment with these 2 around!
