Happy Birthday to My Hubby

I knit this as a birthday present for Jim. Designed by Amalia Samios, it was quick and easy. It consists of a knitted strip, folded in half and seamed. Add a couple stitches to form the ears, buttons for eyes, and a felt beak. Voila! Too cute for words.

We invited friends to share Jim's birthday dinner and cake last night, for Family Home Evening. A couple days early, yes, but less risk of his getting pulled away on Bishop's Business.

Our friend Melissa made the cake (see Triplet Mom Treats), and it was Delicious! As requested by Jim, it was orange cake with chocolate buttercream frosting. Incredibly rich and yummy.

(Of course, in yet another failed blogging moment, there is no picture.)

I have to confess, as I was deciding how many candles to put on the cake, I had to do some subtraction to figure out Jim's age. The next step, of course, was to add 1 to that result, to get my age, and to then be astonished; we're both getting a bit long in the tooth...!


  1. Congrats to your hubby on his birthday, and comiseration all around for our collective aging. (Cute owl, by the way!)

  2. Thanks, Little Brother!

    As my co-worker used to say, Getting old beats the alternative...!

  3. There is nothing long in the tooth about my wife--robins have beaks, not teeth.
