Birthdays are for celebrating. It is the day that God brought a person into the world: the personality, the eyes, the eyelashes, the fun, the spirit, the name – everything about the person – God wants us to love and hold.
One way I love to celebrate birthdays is by having food. Celebrating over meals and friends and fun times is such a joy!
Some of my favorites from yesterday’s party:
The smell of the charcoal heating up to grill some delicious burgers.
Sebastian stuffing in little pieces of canteloupe and devouring a cookie with yellow frosting: therefore, having yellow frosting everywhere.
Elijah staring at his cupcake and then stuffing it in his face.
Friends sitting around enjoying relationships – over good ol’ American food.
Yellow everywhere! It was a happy party with a happy color!
Here’s what we had:
Burgers (thanks to my brother for the “recipe” and my neighbor for making them and the Mister for grilling them). Perfectly cooked!
Crescent Dogs (so yummy!)
Baked Beans – may never make another bean recipe again – and I loved serving it my Papa’s cast iron skillet
Funfetti Cupcakes and Vanilla Buttercream (overcooked the cupcakes but the frosting still rocks)
A yellow school bus cake (more on that to come)
Sugar cookies with yellow royal icing (thank you to a friend mailing me the icing from Southern Season)
Sweet Tea, Coke, and Sprite.
What a great, delicious day. Thanks to all who came, brought stuff, and ate, and laughed, and celebrated our little boy with us! Here’s to many more birthday celebrations to come!
