My Daddy's birthday

Last Friday, we celebrated my dad's birthday with an Iowa State Cyclones theme, complete with red and yellow streamers and balloons! The Cyclones is one of his favorite college sports teams, but the rest of the family likes the Iowa Hawkeyes (especially me!) so we like having a little fun with the (friendly) rivalry. =) So I wore my Hawkeye clothes all day! =)

With his "birthday breakfast" of biscuits and gravy


With one of his guilty pleasures - "3 Musketeers"!



With his presents - we got him the movie Fireproof (which we LOVE!).....he kept joking that we REALLY got it for ourselves (which we did!). =) Again, I totally recommend this movie to ANYBODY....it is wonderful! We also got him Mad Gab - which is such a fun game!


Ready for a game of pool

With his sweetie




For supper, we grilled t-bones and ribeyes - they were delicious!

Another one of Dad's guilty pleasures - marshmellow fudge bars!! They are delicious!
Happy birthday, Daddy! We love you!

Happy Birthday, Mr. Rittgers! I like how you wore YOUR team's jersey. :-) That's fun! So, what are marshmallow fudge bars? I don't think I've ever had them. We also like the game, "Mad Gab". :-)

Hey Tori!

I thought I'd tell you that we (Rebekah and I) might get Fireproof for Mommy and Daddy for Valentine's Day just because we are dying to see it!!!! :-)

Please tell Deanna Happy Birthday for us!

Blessings,
Sarah

Tori - I just watched Fireproof. When I got done with the movie I cracked up when I remembered that you bought this movie for your Dad's birthday. :) I can see why he thought ya'll bought it for yourselves rather than him! :)
