Today is Eugene’s 36th birthday. Happy birthday Eugene!
Normally, I would have bought him a present. But because we’re saving our money for a family trip tomorrow, I haven’t bought one. Our family trip is a combined Wedding Anniversary and Birthday trip rolled into one. But more on that in another post!
Celine did make her Dad a birthday card though. From her and her siblings. So that’s something.
Eugene requested a chocolate cake for his birthday and I of course, obliged. I even had a go at a recipe that I’ve never tried before. One for a rich chocolate cake that can be found in the Edmonds recipe book. I even recorded myself making it for tomorrow’s upload. Again,that’s another future post.
Eugene also requested a simple hotdogs dinner that would be easier for the kids. Quick to make and hopefully not so many arguments when it’s being eaten. I’m going to make chips to go with it.
It’s not really much but between tomorrow’s trip and Dad’s birthday, it’ll be enough excitement for the kids. Especially as we reach the end of the winter school holidays.
Happy birthday Eugene.
Sorry it’s not as exciting a day as it usually is!
