Operation Husband's Birthday: Success

I have been plotting a great many surprises for my Husband this year. I decided to take him on an adventure. I changed his name to something decidedly more Pirate-y, drew him a map and made him find his presents. His map (card) was chock-full of all of our favorite pirate-lingo, and led him directly to the antique (treasure) chest we inherited for our wedding.

Here he is, showcasing his loot. You can also see the card and the chest behind and to the left. 

The highlight of the evening was definitely his dueling lego's, a gift that went over very well.

See, he got decapitated by the catapult. That's pretty intense.

Since Jesse doesn't like cake, this year he requested a Chocococoberry pie, an invention inspired by our Yogurtland experiences on our honeymoon in Santa Barbara. Thanks, Inga-Lill for introducing us to the tastiest experience in the land! For those of you who haven't figured it out, Chocococoberry is Chocolate, Coconut, and Blueberry pie. His Mom diligently (and prayerfully) figured out a way to make a scrumptious concoction. Although, she forgot the coconut, she added a cinnamon crisp topping, and it was fantastic! One of the best pies ever! Henceforth, I believe it shall be called Birthday Pie, as it seems to be easier, especially if anyone else marries into the family, they may think we're nuts. 

Anywho, here is a picture of the unpronounceable pies!

I bid yer' farewell!
