Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is Daddy's birthday!!!! We've been celebrating all weekend and he took today off from work, so we're letting him sleep in.

Here I am helping him blow out his candle on his birthday cake!

Make a wish Daddy!!!!

Don't worry...I didn't get any of the chocolate/puggy poison cake. I got a gingerbread doggie cookie instead!

Mom copied the ruffled top of this cake from one she saw a lady make with Julia Child (click here to see it). Daddy wanted to Indy Blogger fave...the AYFKM chocolate/buttercream cake. Nom nom nom nom!

Mom and I are going to rerun Daddy's birthday post from last year because we love the pictures so much!



Photobucket daddy is turning 45 today (Monday, December 14). Mommy helped me put together a very special blog to celebrate his big day!

This is mommy's favorite current picture of him!
SO handsome!!!!

Daddy (aka Kevin to some of you) grew up in Greenville, SC and went to The Citadel in Charleston, SC. Here is a picture of him when he was a REALLY young Cadet!

Here he is 25 years later, back visiting The Citadel (this time with mommy). I don't appreciate him talking to that BULLDOG, but I guess it's ok since he's bronze.

Speaking of BULLDOGS...look what daddy has on his arm! Most people don't know he has this!
SUCH a tough guy!

I think it's safe to say that daddy now prefers PUGS to bulldogs! Here's proof....this is the day I picked him to be my daddy!
I kissed him, mommy and Holden! That's how they knew I wanted them to be my family!

Daddy helped take such good care of me when I was a tiny puppy!

We became good buddies as soon as they brought me home!

Here are some interesting facts about my daddy....

His family heritage is Irish (can't you tell by looking at him? hahaha!).
He doesn't normally talk like the Lucky Charms man...but he can do it when he's being funny!

Daddy loves HOCKEY (mommy does too, but this blog is about DADDY!)

Daddy's favorite movie is Pulp Fiction

His favorite band is

His favorite TV shows are
30 Rock Pictures, Images and Photos

His favorite food is

Mmmmm STEAK! Medium rare please!

His favorite restaurant in the whole world is Carey Hilliards...a BBQ joint down south (in Charleston, SC)
Bring me a BBQ sammich and some Brunswick Stew!!!!!!

Daddy loves to be silly and make us all laugh...
We don't know what this is either...but we thought it was funny that they sell it at Sam's!

Daddy with the OSTRICH!


Just look at this goofball trying to make me dance with him!!!

Daddy is not only funny....he is very sweet to me also!

I sleep right next to him in the big cloud bed...
Waaaaake up daddy!

He take me for walks...

Gives me lots of good tummy rubs...

Shares his food with me...

Tells me funny stories...
HAHAHAHAHAAAA! You're funny daddy!!!!!

Takes me shopping...
I love going to PetSmart with Daddy and Holden!

He takes me to lots of other fun places...

But best of all...he just loves me and is a great daddy!

Happy Birthday to the best Daddy in the world!
I love you so so so much!!!!!!

Have a great day!

Happy Birthday to your daddy! He looks like he could be related to my dad, but he assures me that his heritage is from Russia and not Ireland. That's half of Mom's! I'm glad you spoil him so well, good daddies are worth the trouble it takes to train them!
