Well, this, and about 20 of our pilots! They all sang Happy Birthday to me, helped me eat the cake (yes, she got a cake to us) and watched me open my presents. Tiffany shipped everything to us, to include the little army parachute guys as party favors.
The cake is from a company called Bake Me A Wish (http://www.bakemeawish.com/). They have a program called "Operation: Birthday Cake" where you can order a birthday cake for your soldier overseas. Evidently it was triple boxed with cooling packs to keep it cold. And my commander said it worked, it was still cold when they received it. And it was excellent! I will be sending some of these pictures to Bake Me A Wish as a thank you to them. Here are a few pics of us enjoying the cake.
And a few of me opening my gifts. The first one is a series of storyboards about the boys' summer. I now have these hanging in my room.
The next one is of me as Jason Bourne in The Bourne Identity movie poster. Tiff has the poster on her blog.
And last, but not least, is the T-shirt my boys gave me for when we play Rock Band on our Wii. Thanks guys. You really made me feel special on my birthday, even though I was so far away. Hopefully we'll be able to be together next year. xoxo ~Daddy
