Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate.
Birthdays are a special time of celebration and rejoicing in the life of a loved one. Last Sunday, we gather to honor our beautiful granddaughter, Virginia Rose's, third birthday. What fun we have!
We weren't planning to have anything at the party but dinner, presents, and a cake. Then, when searching for the cake plate in a high-up cupboard, my husband, Danny, finds items tucked away in a plastic bag. How festive!
Even my mascot, Mr. Squirrel, wants in on the action!
I've wrapped Virginia's gifts the day before and place them on the hearth where she's sure to notice them the moment she walks through the door. We figure she'll go for the balloon first, and she does!
Next? Well, Virginia really gets into the birthday hats and party horns. These keep her happy and occupied while the adults eat dinner.
Then, it's time for presents!!!
Last, but certainly not least, we present Virginia with her birthday cake. I know, I know! Very pink! But, that's the icing she asks for, and this Gammie aims to please. She's enjoying every mouthful!
Virginia Rose's third birthday is a resounding success!
Do you have a favorite birthday party memory?
Will you pray with me?
We thank You, Father, for those special times in our lives which call for feasting and celebration. May the joys of those days point to the heavenly feast and celebration we will one day share with You in Heaven. Amen.
