This week has been so busy! Last Monday we headed to my parents house for my sister's birthday party. Her birthday was actually on Wednesday, but because of church commitments, we celebrated on Monday. My grandparents, aunt, uncle, and cousins were all there to celebrate with us.
Cassie's birthday has always been special because she was born on my dad's birthday. They always shared a bond that no one else could know. Since he's been gone, her birthday has become a time of remembrance. He would've been 50 this year! That's a big birthday. We wonder what kind of party we would've had for him, if he would've had gray hair, if he would've looked older, how our lives would be different...It's always a very neat time. Sad, but neat.
Yesterday, we celebrated a big birthday with Nick's dad. He turned 60. We had a huge bash for him. Tons of friends, tons of food, tons of music, and family. This was a bittersweet party for me. I wish I could've done that for my own dad. Such big birthdays and so many memories made.
What a wonderful time to reminisce!
