After I made him his favorite cookies and a big supper of fried chicken (you know preachers love chicken!), we went to the high school football game. This year our oldest son, Caleb, is a senior and plays saxophone in the band. Our younger son, Josh, is a sophomore and is on the football team. While I enjoy watching my kids, I am not much of a sports fan. However, Danny, loves sports, so it was fitting that the opening game of the season would just happen to be on his birthday. Before the game, Katie Beth gave her Daddy a ball cap with the high school's colors and mascot. Caleb & Josh gave him a wooden sign that reads, "Touchdown Arkansas", and I gave him a Razorback watch. If you haven't figured it out yet, I am married to a die-hard Razorback fan. He's been known to be called, "Dan, Dan, the Razorback Man". After the game, Mom & Tobye came by with sweet cards ( and some moolah!).
Monday was Labor Day, so we were able to meet our families for some Mexican food which is his favorite (besides my chicken, of course!). It was a quick trip but we had a nice time eating with his Mom and Dad, my Mom and sister, and our nephew, Austin.
The birthday "boy" sporting the obligatory sombrero and eating fried ice cream!

Danny with Josh, Caleb, Katie Beth, & Austin. I love this picture!
Danny being silly. I tried to find a number "40" but couldn't find one.

We had a lot of fun celebrating. I hope we made Danny feel special. I love you, Honey!
A special thank you to those of you who have left nice comments about my blog.
