For my birthday in February we had a great time celebrating with my family and just Jayson and I! It was a great birthday I received a lot of amazing gifts from a video camera, clothes, a new purse and tickets to Wicked when it comes in July (I have never been, my mom sister and I are going to go! I will finally get to fit in when people talk about seeing Wicked)!
My favorite gift though was a gift I received from my dad! Years ago, shortly after I was born my dad bought a 22 rifle through his work for me! I have never known that he had this for me until my birthday this year! He has kept it for all these years and has been waiting for the perfect opportunity to give it to me! Well given that he was just diagnosed with cancer and we don't know how long he has he thought it was the perfect time to give it to me for my birthday this year! I can't express how special this gun is and how much I will always treasure it! To know that my dad wanted to get me such a special gift, so long ago, truly shows how much he loves me! I love my dad so incredibly much, he is the most amazing man and dad ever!
My dad and with my gun!
I know you can't see it but it is a beautiful gun!
Dad showing me all the neat little details of my gun!
I couldn't do it so as always....dad could fix it!
Learning how to use it, I will never shoot it because it is so special but he wanted me to know just in case!
I love this picture! It is one of my favorites ever!! It brings up so much emotion every time I see it! I hope my dad always know how much I love him!
