Just Because

I love a man who buys his wife flowers "just because".


The cake turned out great. Very rich and heavy, as I put everything in it but the kitchen sink, but quite tasty. We made him a "Happy Birthday Daddy" sign. The girls loved coloring and stickering it for Daddy. And we made him a bookmark, which they also colored and stickered and I put their picture on the back of. Which made me realize I desperately need to get some pictures of the girls printed. In this picture Zoe had no hair. As we were making the sign, Kaiya leaves the room and comes running back with this... "I want the party to look like this, Mommy!". It's a Danny and the Dinosaur book. So we blew up ballons (or I did, anyway). All I had on hand was water ballons, which don't blow up that easily. We were putting the finishing touches on the sign when we heard him coming up the porch. Kaiya yells "He's here!" and grabs this huge posterboard sign off the table. It's as big as she is. She runs into the living room and holds it up and waits for him to walk in. When he does she screams "Happy Birthday Daddy!". This was his favorite part of the day.

Awww! How fun is that? You can tell he's a good daddy -- his daughters love him so much!

So cute that she wanted the party to look like that book. I read that book as a kid. Danny and the Dinosaur? Cute story. Glad you had a nice party! You're a trooper for blowing up water balloons.
