Our son-in-law, Dwayne and their daughter, Brianna share the same birthday! I think that is so special! Out of every day in the year, God decided for Brianna to arrive on her Daddy’s birthday.
I do believe Daddy enjoys sharing his birthday with his little princess daughter.
Kristen cooked a delicious Birthday Dinner; chicken stroganoff, fruit salad, green beans and french bread.
They decided to have a small family birthday party…grandparents were invited and treated special at the Birthday Party!
When our children were growing up, I usually planned home parties and invited grandparents, cousins and about fifteen of our children’s friends. They also had a one-on-one Birthday dinner date with their Dad at the restaurant of their choice. When they were little, they chose McDonald’s and Taco Bell for their Birthday dinner date with Dad. Of course, their tastes changed as they grew older.
On another occasion, our family went to a nice restaurant. I think, it was Mother’s Day. When we finished eating, seven-year old Melinda said it was a nice restaurant, but she liked Taco Bell better. Big Grin… we still remind her of that.
Mmmm…Kristen baked a big cake for Dad and the grown-up party guests. She baked cupcakes for the Birthday girl and the younger party guests. Dwayne and Kristen hollowed out the center of the cupcakes and put a surprise cherry center.
The expression says it all! Happy 4-year-old, Brianna!
Opening a present…
Gratefulness is always sweet! Giving Grandma a hug…then Papa a hug.
A new red coat and hat for Brianna! I planned for there to be “room to grow,” so she can wear the coat next winter as well. Happy Birthday, Brianna and Dwayne!!
