I was also informed that I am in charge of my Grandma's 75th birthday celebration down in St. George in July. I don't know if Dad was serious, but I will do it if he wants! I think I did a pretty good job on moms!
Now, on to the birthday celebration! Dad made steak and potatoes for his birthday dinner (mom says he has not had to cook much, so it was good of him to cook for us!) and afterwards we opened gifts!
Mason opening his gift from me and Nik. I strategically wrapped it in a box way bigger than the gift itself. I know, I think I am so sneaky.
Mason finding out it is just his old watch with a new band and a polish. But that is what he wanted, and was excited to get it.
It's a Bonsai Tree! Dad likes these little trees, and in the past has even taken trips out to the desert to harvest his own trees to bonsai. This one is just little, for his home office. I hope I picked a good one!
After gifts we had desert. Two kinds of cake and ice cream! Mason doesn't like cake as much, so he always requests a Strawberry Boston (that mom gets from Albertson's) and then there was a small marble cake with raspberry filling for dad. It was decorated with Over the Hill stuff, it was cute.
Hope you guys had a great birthday!!
ps: on a sadder note, the 22nd also marks the anniversary of my Grandma Great's death. I think it was about 8 or 9 years ago that she passed away. We miss her!
