We celebrated Donnie's birthday a day early with a special birthday dinner last night. The kids decorated the driveway with very sweet messages done in chalk to welcome his arrival. I fixed NY Strip Steaks, asparagus, PW's Roasted Potato Wedges, salad, sauteed onions and squash, and of course for the finale his favorite...a carrot cake from Stick Boy Bread Company.
I gave him 4X6 prints taken over the past 3 months of all the fun things we'd done and some Alabama Crimson Tide logo items.
There was a special card too:
He was such a good sport about the homemade paper Birthday Boy hat:-)
Here's a cute video with the boys singing Happy Birthday:
The cake had special star candles and other candles that had colored flames. It was pretty and everyone was patient while I got the picture and angle I wanted.
For someone that means so much to me and who has been there for me during all my struggles in the past year, I definitely wanted to let Donnie know how much he's appreciated and loved. I think if you ask him if he had a good birthday he'll give a resounding yes. Here's to many more wonderful celebrations in our future birthday and otherwise.
