My Daddy's Birthday!
Today is my daddy's 76th birthday and we celebrated yesterday AND today. Yesterday, my brother and his family came up to visit. They brought pizza for the kids and a roast dinner too! They also got my dad's favorite, a mint chocolate cake from Baskin-Robbins! I know it made my dad very happy to have my brother, my sister-in-law, and their cute kids over. My girls were in HEAVEN playing with their cousins! It was a great birthday party.
Today my girls made grandpa a pancake breakfast. Then for dinner, I made his FAVORITE, cheese enchiladas. I also made beans and mexican style rice. For dessert, Craig and the girls made my dad's favorite cake, spice cake. Then we busted out his favorite ice cream--Thrifty's mint chip! I think my dad was pretty happy!
How I love my wonderful dad! He's been the greatest father that I could ever ask for.
And now that I've had to become much more of a caretaker for him, I feel blessed that I can. It's not always easy or convenient, but I bring him things throughout the day, put lotion on his feet, and put on his socks and shoes among other things. It is truly a blessing to me that I can serve him. I should mention he is much improved since his back injury. His legs are completely healed from his infection and look very healthy (better than before the infection.) Also, his back is starting to feel much better. Not 100%, but much better.
I LOVE YOU DADDY!
