60 Cheers for 60 Years--Happy Birthday!

My husband turned 60 today and we sort of celebrated all weekend.  I had a big surprised planned and he was trying to guess what it could be, but I stumped him.

We got this big cookie on Saturday--he preferred it to cake.

Spunky wasted no time jumping into the box and batted Manny away.

He proudly models his new Rudy Notre Dame jacket

I gave him the "Grumpy Old Bear" t-shirt on Saturday, the warm pajamas ("gift wrapped" by L.L. Bean) on Sunday and the Notre Dame "Rudy" jacket and Notre Dame tossle cap this morning. 

When he went outside to walk Abby, he said what's this?  Here is what he saw on our front yard from  He got a big kick out of it and Abby didn't even bark when they came during the night to set it up!

He loved his yard surprise!
Gerard had a great birthday.  He took the day off work and did whatever he wanted all day long.  It was 60 degrees so Abby got a few extra walks in.  Sorry the picture is kind of dark but I had to go to work so took this before I left.  It's dark when I leave and dark when I get home now. I was pleased--they even spelled his name right!

Oh you did it up big. Good for you Karen. I know he loved everything. He had to because you know exactly what he likes. I'm so happy he had a great 60th birthday. :)

Aw, what a fun-looking birthday! I'd be especially fond of the cookie myself, just sayin'. Is there any of it left? Really cool lawn display! I love those when I see 'em.

Happy Belated Birthday, Gerard!

Gerard's lookin' good in that Notre Dame jacket! Happy belated birthday to him.

What size is the jacket? I'm small, about 5'2, and I'm thinking of purchasing myself a Rudy jacket one day - maybe. Thanks!

God Bless.
