Anthony's Birthday Celebration

Anthony turned 32 this year and we had fun celebrating his birthday! I decided a new tradition for birthday breakfast would be doughnuts! We never buy them so it will be a nice treat to look forward to on our birthday. Krispy Kreme had Christmas doughnuts so Mimi & Papa and I went to pick them up while Anthony was at AWANA with the boys. He was completely surprised and loved it.

I wish I had pictures of all us celebrating with our doughnuts but Anthony would KILL me if I posted his just woken up pictures. :) I decided to be kind.

The doughnuts were a big hit with the boys. although, if I had known that the red and green doughnuts had a mint flavor I would have opted for only snowmen. They weren't too excited about the mint flavor. I say, you can't go wrong with Krispy Kreme, no matter what! ;)

I picked Anthony up from work that night and we headed over to Maggiano's in Durham. Let me tell you...INCREDIBLE!!! It was the best dinner out I've had in a long time. My new favorite...Rigatoni D (Thank you Angie and Tracey for the suggestion!!!). We had a wonderful time together and can't wait to go back!

While were having our FABULOUS dinner, the kids and Mimi and Papa were making Anthony his favorite...Coca Cola we could celebrate together when we got home. It was very yummy!

Anthony's office gave him a dancing Santa for his birthday. Addison was checking him out and he was a big hit! :)
