Our David is 29! I am so grateful that his parents said yes to receiving such a gift! David is holy, compassionate, funny, caring, light-hearted, understanding, empathetic, funny, serious, Christ-like, gorgeous, Christ-centered, funny, adventurous, learned, hilarious, intelligent, so good-looking, and the list goes on and on. Anything I pictured for my husband has been completely blown out of the water- he far surpasses anything I could have asked for or imagined. Loving David is a testament to God's goodness and mercy (because I don't deserve him). Did I mention he is the best Dad EVER!?!? And while we're talking about good-looking, we have some seriously beautiful children with all their Daddy's good looks to thank for that! (If you're wondering, they got my personality and his looks- hang on!) So here's our birthday weekend...
Homemade cinnamon rolls - Can't decide whether to thank Paul Dean or to punch her. We all needed sugar/butter induced comas after breakfast.
After the priestly ordination of our sweet friend Father Jeff Starkovich (YEAH!!!) we headed to Lafayette to be with most of David's family - Mimi, Grandaddy, Uncle Pat (Patrick), Pete, Julia, and Liam!
We sang and David blew out his candles on a pistachio cake his mom made - the joke it that David (who is not a typical cake and icing kind of a guy) likes all foods weird and different. A text I received from my mother-in-love the previous day said, "Pistachio cake. Is that weird enough?"
We played cranium (a must if you haven't before) and a really good time proceeded to take place
Including a little dancing to 90's pop (don't knock it til you've relived it)
And today we swam at my Aunt and Uncle's House - complete with Granny, Grandpa, Renee, and ICE CREAM CAKE!!!
It has been a wonderful weekend: Celebrating David's birthday, celebrating the church's birthday (Pentacost), and celebrating with new priests.
