Happy Birthday Jesus....errr....Stephen

My husband's birthday falls on December 23rd and is often overshadowed by Christmas.  Luckily he has a sense of humor and has always told people of the story of his birthday cake's inscription saying "Happy Birthday Jesus & Stephen."  Now this story has always been joke...until this year when I got him the fabled cake:

His reaction when I placed the cake in front of him was priceless.  He was really amused:

We had planned to go to a local pizza shop that ended up being closed the week of Christmas so we invited our friends and family to our place for pizza, cake, and a game of Texas Hold 'Em.  It was a great night.  I bought my hubby Nutty Bars, Mac and Cheese, and Nutter Butters for his special day.  The junk food he has to miss out on all year because I don't buy it is a special treat on his birthday.  He said that food made him feel right at home, which is good for an Iowa boy who is now stuck in California.  Happy 33rd Birthday Baby!
