It was all about Todd...

Oh, wait, and maybe Staci!
what the????
Staci, go away!
It was Todd's 40th birthday celebration, and all of our closest peeps were there to celebrate with us!!

There were Dad and Rita...
Jin Jin, and a host of friends. We went to a local seafood joint on the bayou to the surprise of Todd the Bod.
Once again, Don wanted to see how uncomfortable he could make Todd by getting as close as possible to him in all his pictures.
Seriously, sometimes I wonder about that boy!
And Jin grabbed the camera to get this picture of me and dad. See, when we go out to eat, the boys always sit on one end with the girls on the other end of the table. It is just our way! But there is one exception.... dads sit with daughters. Period!
Todd got a few little prizes. This is a new LSU baseball cap ornament for his LSU Christmas tree. Or... as Todd said, a hat for his midget friend, Johnnye.
You can't read this, but it is from his "BFF" Johnnye. Paula and I like to write sweet sentiments in the gifts we give to them from them.

Kelly, my personal cake baker, made yet another awesome cake for Toddly's big day!
Staci actually bought the cake pan in Canton. Pretty sweet, huh?
And then the candle blowing started. Todd blew out his candles as soon as they were lit.
ANd THEN we sang " Happy Birthday". Todd, have you EVER had a birthday party?! That is totally backwards. SO what did he do?
He relit them and we sang again. And THEN he blew out the candles. ANd in true Ellie Sue form, loving to hear the song and his name in it....
He rocked it again. And so, AGAIN, we sang! Round three!
This is Todd revelling in his glory and conducting as we sang for the FOURTH time. You KNOW the restaurant goers were like, "SHUT UP!" .
Richard D is a good buddy, and was sure to meet us at the big par-tay.
And here we have again, my uber feminine brother-in-law, Don. He likes Air Supply, Belinda Carlisle, long walks on the beach (remind me to tell you THAT story one day!), and ....
apparently scratching Johnnye's head. DUDE! and would you look at the bliss on Johnnye's face?! We have a STRANGE set of friends!
For the grand finale, Todd stuck the final two candles in his Ahi Tuna for a final round of "Happy Birthday to Todd".
Fun was had by all, and I went home to sleep with a 40 year old for the first time ever!
and tomorrow we start rubbing BenGay on each others' joints!
