Happy Birthday Donnie!

SmugMug Daily Link

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.

Happy Birthday Mr. Don! What a wonderful surprise he got! I'm sure the boys were great -- Mom has taught them to always appreciate a chance to celebrate and have a party and that's so wonderful!
