Happy Birthday, Dad!

Miss Autumn kindly let us post today because today is a very important day. It's our dad's birthday!
The sad part of it is that he's away in Rhode Island for the week and won't be home until Friday night. Mitch and I bought him what we think is the perfect gift! We had one of dad's favorite paintings of Mitch put on a t-shirt!
So next week when dad is back in Rhode Island for the second week in a row, he won't miss us too much because Mitch will be right there with him the whole time!
We wrapped it up and we still have to make him a card, Mitch, and then we'll be all set for him to drive in on Friday!
hummmmmmmmmmm, what to do about the EATS! I'm thinking of the Glenwood for a hamburger and fries! Are you thinking the same thing I'm thinking, Mitch?
But we'll have to wait to celebrate unless mom agrees to take us to Glenwood so we can get the pawty started and then we'll just go again with dad the next time! What do you think of that plan? Brilliant, right?!
This is a picture of our dad when he was just a little boy!
Happy birthday to the bestest dad in the whole wide world!
We love you, dad! Hurry home so we can celebrate your birthday with you!

Love ya lots and lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Happy Birthday Maggie and Mitch's Dad!! We know you'll love your present.

And we think maybe you should go to Glenwood with Mom today just so you'll know exactly what to order when you take your Dad - a practice run, so to speak.

Our Mom is absolutely ooohing and awwing over the picture of your Dad when he was a little boy - such a sweet picture and a little bowtie!!

XOXO

Happy Birthday to your dad! I am sure that he will be so proud to wear the Mitch Tshirt. Are you going to have ice cream to celebrate his birthday?

Your friend,

Gus said...

Absolutely the bestest pressie! And we definitely think you should go to the Glenwood to check it out and make sure the quality is still the same, before dad gets home. Wouldn't want to disappoint him

Your dad is going to love the gift! We just know it! That was a great idea, Maggie and MItch, and you wrapped it beautifully. We like how you're holding it between your paws. Take good care of it until he gets home and then REALLY enjoy the celebration! (We agree - a trial run at the Glenwood makes absolute sense. Tell 'em he's coming and maybe they'll put a candle in the burger!

Happy Birthday wishes to your dad! (Check out the twinkle in those little boy eyes!)
