Another year older

We celebrated Andrew's birthday earlier this month with a small little family party here at home.  It was perfect.  He requested Papa John's pizza for dinner.  Yeah for easy!  He loves homemade chocolate cake, so that's what we made for dessert.  I love that the girls help me (and are actually helpful!) in the kitchen. 
I got him Panthers tickets again this year, and they were not a surprise.
He and Brandon get to go to a game on Christmas Eve.  Woo hoo!

The kids each chose a small gift for him and 
we made him go on a treasure hunt to find him.
He was a good hunter.

Whit picked out a Panthers football.

B chose some of his favorite candies.

But the most surprisingly thoughtful gift came from Caroline.
All on her own, she decided to get her
daddy some fish oil tablets,
which she knows Andrew takes every night.
She apparently cares about her daddy's health!

We love you so much, Drew!
We're happy to celebrate another year with you--
and it was a surgery- and ER-free one, too!  Yippee!
