I am trying to calculate how many years First has selected his meal choice and I think aside from when he was in Afghanistan and stationed at Fort Drum he has had it since he was three...for the squeamish I suggest skipping the rest of this post as his meal choice is brutal after he enhances it with ketchup, cayenne pepper, and barbecue sauce! If you still wish to continue scroll down
This year for the cake I made a candy cake in a chips and salsa dish...
I know someday birthday celebrations may change locations and the cook may be someone else, but I pray we never stop celebrating the special day that brought this person into our fold. Birthdays have always been a day where I get emotional and reflect upon how hard it was for me to have each child...and how thankful Bill and I are to be the parents of the goof troop.
To the outsiders looking in I wonder~
1. On the corniness level 0 lowest- 10 highest where do we rank?
2. On the birthday get together~what do you do in your family for the birthday person?
To my handsome First~I will never forget that moment I saw you for the very first time. Tears well up in my eyes thinking about that day. I fast forward to when you were in Afghanistan and how we sent you a birthday in a box package and I cried most of the way home from the post office, as I worried about you far far away. And this year, I will look back upon it as the year you gave me someone new to love and cherish and you even allowed her to see your mile pile of food and she didn't recoil! I always think each year is the best and how can it get any better and then poof something else happens...First~thank you for making me a mom for the very first time. I love you!
