Birthdays


Well, Flint turned the big 3-0 this week. February 2nd to be exact. It was a fun-filled day. It was nothing extravagant, but hopefully it was special to him! Thanks to everyone who helped make it special and thanks to all of his friends who sent birthday wishes! Flint really doesn't get into surprise parties or birthday parties at all (oh, but don't worry...Cilla WILL be having a birthday bash!) and since most of his dearest friends are no closer than Dallas, we opted out of the party. Instead, I had lots of friends write emails, send cards, tell funny stories, share favorite memories... you know, all the things you like to do when you enter a new decade of life! I took all of the birthday messages and put them into a scrapbook for Flint. I think it was a big hit! At least, I hope it was! Here are a few pictures of Flint's day.

Cilla playing before she went to breakfast with daddy and then off to school.
Our attempt at sending daddy birthday wishes. Sitting still is a hard task for us these days!
The Birthday Boy!
My friend, Emmalie, owns Crop.Paper.Sissiors and she made this banner for me. I love how it turned out and it will be used lots in the future!
Just for the record, we went to breakfast together at one of our favorite places- Cafe Cappuccino. I took his favorite cupcakes up to work (thanks Hillary! We still LOVE the decadent chocolate filled chocolate cupcakes!) We went to dinner with our friends, The Campbells. Then we had a little family time- opened gifts, watched a video I made of Flint's first 30 years, we read through the birthday book, and we ate cookie cake!!!
Flint, I hope your day was wonderful. We love you so much.

Yay! I was hoping you'd have a post about the big birthday! It looks like y'all had a great day. I love all your personal touches, Rebekah, and I'm sure Flint really appreciated them, too.

That first picture is especially adorable! :)

Girl it sounds like you and Cilla really made Flint's day special. That's great. How did you make him a video?
