Daniel... the BIG 25!

Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear Daniel. Happy Birthday to you!

My boy is growing up so fast. =0)Ha!

We had a BBQ at our house Saturday night. It was so much fun!! Here are some pics from the BBQ.My sister Sara helped make me a cake for Daniel. We put Airheads around each layer of the cake. We know it's crooked. Pretend that's how it is supposed to be. =0) What do you think? Ha Ha.My sis Myley, bro Skye and Dan's bro Chris watching the BYU game.My mom, Myley, Sara and Skye at the BBQ.Daniel's bro Chris, step brother Jeremy and bro Mike.The cutest guy in the world!Daniel's dad Danny and his wife Anna, Jeremy and Marne.We decided to play croquet...we only had one of the loop things that you hit the ball through, so we put the loop in the backyard...we would start in the front yard and run around hitting the ball and the first one to hit it through the loop in the back yard won. It was so much fun running around the house hitting the balls. (we have to get creative when we are missing parts of the game.) ......Marne, Myley, Sara and Shandi.my brother Skye.Thanks everyone for coming on Saturday night to celebrate Daniel's birthday. We loved having all of you. The food was amazing..(I can say that because I didn't make anything other than the cake. ha) We had a blast!

Sunday morning we got up pretty early to open presents before church. I get so excited to give Daniel his presents! Here they are before he touched them. =0)
Rhymer and Loafer ready for Daniel to come down stairs. They are our favorite dogs in the world!First present: a ScarfNext: a Tie (skinny tie)Third: Dress shirt for workNext: I attempted to make Daniel something crafty. It didn't really work out. I used Daniel's actual old drum sticks, pictures of Coldplay and the butterflies are from the Coldplay concert we went to. *Sorry Daniel, I tried.Next present: His grandpa gave Dan an article of The Chicago Bulls first 3 peat in June 1993. I decided to frame it for him. You can't really tell but the mat looks like a basketball.Another present: I made Daniel a scrapbook and a CD of 14 songs that remind me of him. In the scrapbook on one page I have the song lyrics and on the other page I wrote a story of why the song reminds me of him. It was so much fun to make for him and it made me so happy to think of all of our memories.Next present: My sister Kelsey made a photo slideshow DVD for me of Daniel growing up to the 25 year old he is today! =0) I still can't believe he's 25!After church we went to Dan's mom's house and she made us lunch and a great cake!Happy Birthday Daniel! I love you so much!

The gifts you made had so much thought I love the idea of the song lyrics as well as the reason they made you think of him.
