Birthday Blessings

Today is a very special day....
it's my Dad's birthday :)

(Dad and Me)

The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful, special, and amazing dad.
I remember thinking when I was younger that if I could have any dad in the world
I would still choose my precious father because he is truly the best :)

(Dad and Mom)

Wishing you a fantastic birthday!
May you find many blessings and joy today and throughout the next year.
Thank you for being a man that I and my family can look up to.

I made my dad a candy card and I thought I would share it with all of you.
He is a big-time candy lover :)


This is what the cards says:

Dear Dad,
Happy Birthday to a BIG HUNK!
Your love, honesty, and steadfastness have been GOOD & PLENTY for our family.
You would travel to the MILKY WAY for us.
We love your silly and somewhat corny jokes because they give us the SNICKERS.
It's your birthday and just think, you could be in New YORK 
watching the 3 MUSKETEERS on Broadway, 
but instead you're surrounded by your loving AIRHEADS.
You bring us lots of ALMOND JOY and you are the STARBURST of our day!
We got you 100 GRAND for your special day, but it slipped through our BUTTERFINGERS
and we didn't have a WHATCHAMACALLIT to replace it...sorry.
Hopefully you will SKOR big time elsewhere for your birthday.
Please don't ROLOver and get sick eating your card.
We love you to PIECES!

I then attached a balloon to the card with a rolled up check inside.

Happy Birthday, Dad!
I love you!

And the last picture is of my dad many years ago with his mom, my Grandma Betty.

Hi Stephanie! Awww...I LOVE the idea of the card and the candy. So clever! (I may steal the idea!)

Your Dad is such a handsome, blessed man. He has you for a daughter. I am sure he thanks God for you in his life.

He cuts quite a dashing figure on the motorcycle!

Happy birthday to your "Daddykins." How sweet is that...well, not as sweet as the candy bar card. teehee LOVE IT!! Now I have a craving. :)
Many blessings to all.

Mrs. Smith said...

Happy birthday to your dad!! The card was precious - I suspect it will be hard for him to eat the candy on it because it was so wonderfully made! But then again, if it were me, I might have to go for it, considering there is chocolate under those wrappers! :)

Jennifer Where the Green Grass Grows said...

Happy Birthday to him!!! I love the card! I made one for my dad Father's day! It's the cutest idea!! Blessings!
Jennifer

Sandra said...
