So I don't know if it's because the major Jewish holidays last more than a week (not that Dave's birthday is a Jewish holiday), or if Dave is just extra special, but as of last night we finished the fourth of Dave's birthday celebrations. So now it's time to write about them :)
On Thursday night I made Dave his chosen birthday supper of stroganoff. Then the kids and I gave him our cards and we ate Double Chocolate Cream Pie for dessert. Rachel inherited her mother's tendencies to lick the plate clean where chocolate is involved!
Then we went to see The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. I HATED this movie. It almost made me want to skip going to Hobbiton when we go to New Zealand because the movie was incredibly awful. It was nothing like the book and mostly made up. Dave and I are leaning heavily towards not seeing the third movie in theatres because we were so disappointed. Plus the only showing at our theatre was in 3D and I actually screamed out loud twice. (I dare you not to scream out loud when it looks like a severed Orc head is about to land in your lap.)
And I can't believe we spent a whole evening with Tim and Janice and didn't get any pictures of them. I'm so disappointed in us.
So those were the first two celebrations of Dave's birthday. Tomorrow the celebrating continues... Well, the documentation of the celebrating. The actual celebrating is mostly done.
