Last week, we had 2 major birthday milestones! Sarah turned 21 and the very next day, John turned 40! "How can that be?", I often ask myself. Never mind the big 4-0 is creeping my way in a matter of months.
John has been working a large project for his work and has been a road warrior. The weekend prior to their birthdays, John came home for 1 day and Sarah for the weekend for a little family celebration.
John literally went from the airport to the restaurant to meet us for dinner. JT didn't care I was snapping photos of the birthday Daddy/daughter. He just wanted to be in a photo.
We went to one of our favorite locally owned places-Sax Deli. We enjoyed hambergers, sandwiches, and as many fries as our bellies could handle.
Sisters reunited. They are quite the trip when they are together!
Me and my baby girl.
JT was more than happy to help Sarah unwrap her presents from the family.
To keep the kid alive in her, a massive box of pop rocks.
Starting to get Sarah some more adult gifts- DVD player. Then JT kept saying very loudly, "Where is Sarah's TV?" That will teach us to take the boy with us for present shopping without some major covering up.
Not that the wrap job gave it away though ;)
Sarah's first flat screen TV! She hasn't had one of her own since going to college since she didn't want to take the major chunk of an old school TV she used at home. This is also a smart TV which means she can stream Netflix, hulu, and do other cool things directly through her TV.
Then it was time for candles and singing! I made a homemade caramel chocolate chip brownie for Sarah, our cake hater. Then for John, I made a coconut &pecan caramel cream pie. JT loved helping me bake the desserts and telling everyone in the store when we purchased the candles that "My Daddy is going to be 41!" He kept mixing the candles around for different number combinations and 41 stuck in his head. I told him not to age Daddy too quickly.;)
The difference in age- Sarah thrilled and excited about turning 21. John? Not so much excitement.
Happy Birthday to you....
Making wishes for many more celebrations together like this.
