This Wednesday we celebrated Derrick’s birthday. I must admit, things were VERY different this year. There was no way Miss Neely was going to cooperate with me on throwing a birthday party for her Daddy. Here is how it went down…
Derrick had to open his gifts with a key being that I ordered them online and they were in a big brown box. There was no wrapping paper. There was no card.
We did take out. No hot homemade meal. Styrofoam boxes with salads from Longhorn. I did grab some forks out of the drawer. Clearly this celebration was too fancy for plasticware.
Instead of going out for drinks or going to watch a movie, Neely provided us with our entertainment. There is just something precious about that baby playing in her bathtub.
Thankfully, Derrick’s Mom made him a birthday cake (otherwise we would have all been gathered around a Little Debbie Fudge Round with a candle in it). Coconut cake – YUM!I told her we would give her back her dish this weekend so I am doing my best to polish it off as quickly as possible. I am doing an excellent job.
Even though his birthday might have been simple without any decorations or fancy fixins, having one extra person at the party made it more special than any before.
