A Super Bowl birthday for our Super Daddy!

Yesterday was a special day at our house! David's birthday fell on Super Bowl Sunday this year and we wanted to celebrate despite the sickness in our family. (JJ is improving every day from his RSV and now Emma Grace seems to have it. ) While daddy was at church, the girls helped me prepare for our surprise party. We made some homemade decorations and prepared lunch together. We decided to make Mexican food because we usually celebrate birthdays at one of our favorite restaurants, Los Tres. Since we couldn't go out to eat with all our germs, we made our own restaurant here at home! We set the table with real napkins and water goblets, so the girls thought we were being very fancy. wink! (It's the small things in life, huh?) Bella suggested that we needed to dress fancy as well, so the girls wore their dresses from Aunt Paula's wedding. I curled their ponytails, painted their finger nails, and allowed them to put on a spritz of perfume! woo woo! We love you daddy and we hope you had a wonderful birthday!David and his fancy girls! Bella thought it was so fun drinking out of a real water goblet... especially since it was filled with soda! Par-tay at our house, I tell ya!Wubs and her sweet little birthday smile for daddy! "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."- Matthew 6:34

  2. What a fun celebration! Love that you made it so special despite the sickness!
