Birthdays just get more and more fun around here as the kids understand the concept of a special day and desire to participate more and more. :) Brad's Birthday (in January) was so sweet - Lucy anticipated the big day with me - we made cupcakes together and the kids colored the wrapping paper for daddy's gifts.
Lucy "helping" make daddy's cupcakes - She cracked an egg all by herself perfectly! I turn around for two seconds and the next thing I know she's handing me the measuring cup saying, "Here's your egg mommy!" I laughed so hard - so surprising!
We had a fun dinner with close friends the day before Brad's birthday - he cooked (typical for him - it's how he relaxes.... strange human :) ) and prepared Chicago Style Pizzas. :)
The centerpiece on the party table - a tribute to some of the things Bradley loves: Theology, God's Word, Cooking, Penguins, Coffee, Golf, Technology and Wine. :)
Before gifts on his birthday I paused everyone long enough to snap some pictures:
He loves these two so much.
Brad is such a good daddy and friend to them.
My handsome men - LOVE these two - they are so fun. I'm glad they have each other to roughhouse with. :)
Lulu and her dad have such a special relationship - Lucy adores her daddy and would spend all day with him if she could. :)
A very "Brad" gift: A new cookbook! We recommend it! It's a really neat book. :)
He was excited about this one! A Jambox! It's a wireless bluetooth speaker that can be used with any device that has bluetooth. It's great. And we've loved having it. :)
Dinner with my sweetie :)
Outside the theater - before the show.
Our tickets and play books - a great way to celebrate with my man who appreciates special memories more than physical gifts sometimes.
We love you Bradley Wayne! So very thankful you are our husband and daddy - thank you for serving us well. XOXO!
