happy birthday dad (almost)...

Happy Birthday Dad!

Tonight we're off to celebrate my dad's birthday. He hasn't quite narrowed down what it is he wants to do. The only thing we know is that we're supposed to be at my mom and dad's house by 5. I'm sure it will be a great time!

My father's actual birthday is on Sunday. However, he has chosen to celebrate the festivities this evening. (This works well for us since Ben will be up at Westgate Chapel helping out with music Sunday night.)

I have to tell you that my dad is quite possibly the most generous person on the face of this earth! He has gone to some great lengths to help out those in the community, those within the church and most often those in his family. We have enjoyed countless vacations, wedding celebrations, dinners out, limo rides, sporting events and time at home. Whether my dad is giving of money or his time, he does it joyfully! I hope and pray that someday we'll be able to give back to my father in a similar fashion. For now, all we can do is thank him for his many blessings!

Happy Birthday Dad! We love you lots!

P.S. Sorry for all of the pictures - I just love how you can see his happiness in each one...they all bring back great memories too! :)

We just wanted to take this opportunity to wish our Son a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, again. Sorry this one can't include a wrapped present but it does come with lots of love from out hearts.
