Happy Jeffoween!

It's finally here, Jeffoween! Oh, you don't know what Jeffoween is? Well, I'll tell you. You see, it kicks off with Jeff's birthday that starts today and ends with Halloween. When Jeff was little he thought that the following two weeks from his birthday were just an elongation of celebration for his birthday. The origin of the term Jeffoween is unknown. It was in existence before we got together. New holidays are always fun and I thought it was cute so we celebrate it every year.

Today's Jeffoween activities will include the making of any cake of Jeff's choosing and dinner of his choice too. He's chosen Asian Chicken salad for dinner and Lemon Cream Cake for dessert. I don't think we'll go anywhere today. I'm pretty sure we'll see a lot of Lego Star Wars, Zelda, and the History channel on the T.V. today and that's OK. I promise to not ask him to do anything on his birthday. I even got him a surprise treat for his lunch.

The next following weeks will be filled with treats and T.V. specials ending with Trick or Treats.

I love Jeffoween and I love Jeff. He's been my best friend for 14 years and everyday I wonder if other couples have as much fun as we do.

So here's to Jeffoween! Celebrating a lovely husband, a great father, and just an all around good guy.

Happy Birthday Jeffery!!!
Happy Jeffoween too!

hooray hooray for jeffoween! we adore jeffoween too, now that we know about it! =) sounds kinda like our "rommadon" celebration every year (its the holy month of romm celebration), though it started the year we got married (begins with seth's birthday in feb & ends on our wedding anniversary at the end of march with birthdays & our sealing anniversary scattered throughout the 45 or so days)! gotta love those unique reasons to be happy, they are the absolute BEST! happy birthday to jeff from us. happy cooking to you. what are the girls' plans for costumes this year, anyways? BIG HUGS TO YOU!

I can barely remember not having a Jeff. He adds just the perfect spice to our family. I don't know how we would have handled it if he didn't love Halloween as much as we all do. Of course he does and he adds his own special flair as well.
Happy B Day Jeffery Scott!
We love you pumpkin loads.

Your to do list is wayyyy too long woman! :) You are a better mom than me. My kids costumes this year will be "Kids, go pick something out of the costume bucket."

OK...so Abbey sounds JUST LIKE my Sydney! And you know what rule I had to create!! "No going to the nurse unless there is actual blood!"
