Another Year Sexier

Chris turned the big 3-0 on April 1rst. His idea of a birthday present was to lay in bed all day and wallow about how "old" he turned. Arista and I had other plans...

The morning started out with Chris being served his favorite breakfast burritos in bed. Arista loved laying by him, and singing her version of "Happy Birthday". After breakfast Chris opened his presents from us which was an awesome pair of MSU basketball shorts, and a beautiful purple shirt and tie. We also got him a button to wear that said "Another Year Sexier". Seriously he gets sexier the older the gets.



Sadly Chris had to go to class, but dressed up for the occasion. What a handsome man I have!



For dinner Chris and I had De Luca's pizza. It is the best pizza we have ever tasted. After pizza Chris and our friend Matt went out to go shopping. While Chris was gone we set up a huge surprise party for him, with all of our friends. We did a Star Wars themed party, and decorated the house with all of his toys. I dressed up as Queen Amidala, and Arista dressed up as Yoda.





We had a Darth Vader pinata that we hit with a light saber...











A fight against Spencer the Jedi Knight and Bauer...







A special appearance of Jabba "The Hut", along with Princess Leia...





A Millenial Falcon ship that caught fire on the cake...








A skit "At home with the Skywalkers"...








R2D2 Treats...



Thank you to all of our friends who made Chris' 30th birthday unforgettable. Chris could not stop talking about how much fun he had, and how blessed we are for such great friends.

Chris' main gift for this 30th birthday was tickets to the Final Four basketball games. Our friend Matt and Chris left this morning for Indianapolis to cheer on MSU and Duke. Unfortunalty MSU lost by 2 but Duke will play in the championship game!! This has been Chris' dream for a long long time, and we were happy to send him on his way to watch it. Pictures coming soon! Go Duke! Happy Birthday to a man who is another year sexier!
