It was so nice to be able to see her today as I reminisced about that day 18 years ago when her Daddy and I welcomed her into the world.
It's nice to have these positive things to focus on.
I went to Costco and picked up 2 dozen roses. I fired up the Cricut, got out my coloured vinyl and cut out "HAPPY 18TH DEB" in 5" and covered one of the front windows with the letters so she would see it as she pulled into the driveway.
The roses were lovingly arranged on the foyer table, along with a birthday card I made.
Here are a few pics:
Deb and I then met my oldest son for dinner at a wonderful Japanese restaurant where we had Teppanyaki. It was totally delicious -- we ordered surf n' turf for 3. :)
Here's my son, Mark and the birthday girl:
And for the piece de resistance, she had to dress up for the traditional birthday photo:
It was a good day :)
