Last night, the four of us went over to Julee’s house to take her birthday presents to her. Her actual birthday was Friday, but she has been busy with family this weekend, so we just got a chance to drop by last night. Brody was very excited to give Julee her gifts. He grabbed her gifts and ran as fast as he could to the door when we got to the house!
Brody wanted to make a birthday card for Julee to include with the gift he chose, so he made it while Jillian napped on Friday. I told him I would write the card for him if he would tell me what he wanted me to write. The picture below is of the outside of the card. He had a hard time deciding what he wanted it to say. First, he said Happy Birthday, Julee. Then, Happy Birthday, JuJu. Then, he decided it should say Happy Birthday, Julee Turner, but quickly changed his mind and decided it should say, Happy Birthday, Julee Bell. (Julee’s maiden name) We laugh that he calls her by her maiden name!
This is the inside of the card. I wrote down exactly what he said. It makes me laugh every time I read it!
In case you cannot read my squatty hand writing, it says, “Happy Birthday, Julee! Eat a piece of cake! Get a present, a card, pennies, and mommy and Brody. Preslee lives in your belly. I need to get her a phone! Dr. Seale (my OB, but not Julee’s OB) will take her out. Give Matt pennies. I need to get RoRo (Romeo) a four-wheeler present. The End. Love, Brody.”
The night would not have been complete without eating some of Julee’s birthday cake!
After we got home from Julee’s house, we put Brody to bed. He said his bedtime prayer. When he finished, he thought for a minute and said, “Oh and cake! Dear God, thank you for CAKE! Amen!” :)
Hope you all had a great weekend!
