Papa’s Birthday!

We celebrate my dad’s 72nd birthday today!  A family dinner at Mandarin was the perfect setting.  The girls made papa some homemade cards and presents, and we got dad his favourite cake – Black Forest!  I added some extras, too Winking smile

Annika’s learned how to draw a really good Flower Man!  She told me she ate fast at lunch break today at school to leave enough time to draw this for her papa xo

Mom took us all out for the celebration! 

My dad’s still pushing through this long-haul chemo regimen – May is the magic month when hopefully we can put all of this behind us.  My dad is the strongest person I know, and has never blinked an eye at what he’s going through.  Our biggest hope and wish this year is for Dad’s health to be back at 100% so he can get outside and do what he loves, running and biking!

Dad’s birthday officially kick-starts the cluster of winter birthdays!  Next up… Mavie!
