Hello everyone! My parents birthdays are only a few days apart, and we usually just celebrate them both on one day. So that is what we did! We had them over for dinner and sang Happy Birthday to them and had Dairy Queen ice cream cake and gifts. Yummy! Really, we spoiled them for an evening and made them feel special,
(at least I think we did).
Well, my youngest, who is 9 years old wanted to make her grandparents an exploding box, but on a much smaller scale. So with a little help from her Momma (Me) on the cutting of the boxes and the lids, she made her own rendition of what she thought an exploding box should be like. I loved hers! Much more simple and less work! But weather it is simple or very detailed, they are all done as a labor of love. I thought that it was so sweet of her that she wanted to put money inside of their boxes...her own money from her own wallet, $.20 to be exact! It was all in pennies, too! Then she put a small Milky Way candy bar in it too! So cute, and they both loved it!
Then after that, my oldest daughter gave my Mom, handmade earrings, with red glass beads! She loved them so much that she put them on right away and wore them the rest of the evening. My Mom loves having a granddaughter who is her own custom jewelery maker! LOL My dad was a little jealous that she did not make him a pair of earrings or something! LOL Of course he was just teasing her.
Next, it was my turn to give my gifts/cards to my parents! First I gave my Mom her napkin fold card, (which I posted earlier this past month). She loved the front very much and then when she opened it there was a lot of Oohhhhh's and Ahhhhhh's coming from both my parents! She thought it was so beautiful! And yes, she saw how it reminded me of a quilt and the quilt squares. She even started to cry a little, on us.
Well, thanks for taking a look at this and I hope that you have a blessed day!
