Happy Birthday Daddy

Yesterday, we celebrated Daniel's 34th birthday. The children had been planning for Daddy's special party for weeks. They made special cards and then saved every peso they could to buy Daddy something at the local store. Here is a picture of their carefully and lovingly hand wrapped/decorated cards and gifts.

We had a taco dinner, icecream, and watched Daddy open all his gifts. We also played a "game" we had prepared. Over the past couple of weeks, I had he children all tell me different reasons why they loved their daddy. I wrote each one down on a post it note. We came up with 34 of them because Daddy was turning 34. After birthday dinner, the children asked Daddy to go into the back of the house for a bit while they posted the notes all over the front of the house. Daniel had to find all 34 of them...then he got to sit at the table, read them aloud, and try to guess who wrote which ones.

They were so sweet...they included things like "I love Daddy because he brushes my hair at night" (Rebekah), and "I love my Daddy because he tells people about Jesus" (Elijah), and "I love Daddy because he plays football and frisbee with me" (Benjamin)...and my favorite "I love my Daddy because he spanks me"(Timothy) :)
Happy Birthday Daniel/Daddy!
