Then on the evening of his birthday, we had the Savage clan over for dinner (Steve's favorite: lasagna) and dessert (Steve's favorite: pumpkin cheesecake). Molly decided that Daddy needed a party hat and made one for him out of paper (see below).
For his birthday I bought him a sound bar and sub-woofer for our TV downstairs. But I also put together an album for him with notes, pictures and well wishes from friends and family. It was a lot of fun contacting people from his past and compiling everything, and he was surprised and moved by the gift so that made me happy!
It was the perfect celebration of such a wonderful man and I know it meant so much to him to be surrounded by family on his special day.
