birthday post ~ part II

Celebrating birthdays as a family is a special time. When it's one of our birthdays, we get to choose a restaurant to have dinner.

Melanie chose Chil*'s and it was really good.

None of us, in fact, chose a Big Mouth Burger, but we all enjoyed what we chose.

Some of the waiters and waitresses came in and sang "Happy Birthday" to her.

Birthday hugs from Daddy.

Interesting candids.

Double love.

The famous birthday "cheek to cheek" photo.

I love you so, so, so, so, so, so, so, so much, Melanie.

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you!
Happy Birthday, Dear Melanie.
Happy Birthday to you.

This is truly a great tradition Carol and I love hearing more about them from families all over. Please pass along the many birthday blessings we are sending to Melanie from us.
