It’s Peytons and Gracens birthday!! Yes they share the same birthday...but 5 years apart. Peyton will be 17 and Gracen will be 12!! How can this be!! They are growing up so fast!
I had to run to the store to get this two items pictured above!! Krispy Kreme Donuts and Birthday candles. Wade and I started this tradition over 20 years ago on Reagan’s first birthday!
Birthday mornings were fun! Wade and I would prepare the surprise before the kids would wake up. Wade would grab his phone record the whole thing!! I would line the candles around the donut and quickly light them. We would walk across the house to their rooms and begin singing 🎶 Happy Birthday to You 🎶! They loved it!! We loved it! I can still remember last year. He was with me. By my side We had our routine. We knew how to get it all done...... but tomorrow.
I am praying that tomorrow, God’s strength will be with me and it will truly be “happy” birthdays. I am choosing to thank God for Family traditions!! They help us remember how much Wade loved us. I choose to celebrate my babies because that is what their daddy would have wanted. Although tears stream down my face tonight - tomorrow we will sing happy birthday with a smile because they are worth it and that best represents who their daddy was. 🎂🎁🎈
