My wonderful husband is turning 50 on Wednesday! He is the last one of his siblings to reach this milestone! Our kids can't believe that anyone could turn 50....."It's so old, Daddy"! Considering the fact that I am only a short 5 years behind him, I don't think it's so old anymore!
Anyway, we are planning a hug party on Saturday! Our Jamaican neighbors are roasting an ENTIRE PIG for our feast! Also on the menu is.....baked beans, chips/dip and other snacks, birthday cake/cupcakes, and ice cream! Dan doesn't want any gifts so instead, we've asked those attending to bring a covered dish to share for the celebration!
The party will be at his mom and dad's house. He wants to show off the beautiful deck he just built in their back yard!
Does this mean we would now be considered "middle aged"? It's quite an interesting phenomenon to consider that the older you get....the faster time goes by. After all, it seems like just yesterday that I was pregnant with Nathan....and here he is, about to turn ten!
Well...if I had my way, God would have created all of us with a pause button so we could enjoy our kids just a little longer.....just to freeze one moment to be lived more fully. Sigh
I will most certainly share the celebration photos! In the meantime, I've got lots to do between now and Saturday! Have a blessed week!
