Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today would have been my dad's 60th birthday. Last year on his birthday, the babies made him a poster that said "Hurry Home Pappy". He spent his last birthday in the ICU at Banner Desert. Then, we thought he would be home in a matter of days. God had other plans. We celebrated tonight with our whole extended family. We had all of Daddy's favorites for dinner- Mom made meatloaf, UB made mashed potatoes, Nana made corn souffle and brought watermelon (which Andrew ate half of) and we brought dessert, his favorite ice cream Mint Chocolate Chip from Baskin Robbins. My mom was so thoughtful and bought us all gifts- ALL OF US! She gave us pics of Daddy. She framed 2 of Daddy and I at our wedding. She also gave me a necklace and a heart pendant with Daddy's birthstone. UB, Bill, the babies and I gave her a ring "from daddy". Uncle Kim prayed before dinner and thanked God for the grace He gave us to get through the last year. I put my sweet babies to bed and Andrew actually said, "miss pappy sad". Yes baby boy, we miss Pappy and we are sad. We rejoice in the knowledge that he is resting in the presence of Jesus right now. We love you Daddy- Happy Birthday
