If you've read here very long, you know that we love to celebrate...and we never miss a birthday!
On Sunday, we gathered to celebrate my dad's birthday.
The candles were "sparkling" candles.
I hadn't really thought about what that meant.
I simply liked that they were colorful and skinny and taller than the average birthday candle.
But when Gampy tried to blow them out, those crazy candles surprised us all and kept coming back!!
Birthday surprises can be fun! :)
Did you notice in the photos how his great-grandchildren are gathered around my dad, fully participating in the candle-blowing and the birthday-singing and the gift-opening and the card-sharing?
It brought to my mind this verse from Scripture...
"Children's children are the crown of old men."
We are never sorry that we took the time to gather in celebration!
