Happy Birthday To My Son Darrell & Happy Pink Saturday!



Today is my son Darrell's 36th birthday!  I bet you're wondering the connection between Pink Saturday and his birthday.  You'll see...I promise!  


It seems like yesterday I was watching my son play little league.
Darrell 12 yrs. old

And then before I knew it I was watching him graduate from the Sheriff's Academy.
Darrell & Mike
Such a proud day I'll never forget!

And then I was watching him get married!
And dancing at his wedding!
As you can see we were both a bit emotional!  Of course we were dancing to Barry Manilow's I am Your Child.

And then I was watching him with his first born!
Darrell & Caleb

And then along came another little guy!

Darrell & Dylan
aka Big D & Little D

I'm so proud of Darrell and his accomplishments.  He's a terrific son and an amazing dad!  You can see how much his little guys idolize him!  He is also hilarious and always makes me laugh!  

Okay now for the Pink Saturday connection.  Since I have always had a passion for pink but didn't have  daughters I never let that stop me when it came to decorating. I never put anything pink in their rooms though HONEST!  I did put my Barry Manilow fan club stuff in Brian's room but that's another story! LOL  Darrell always told everyone how he had to use an all pink bathroom at home! LOL  When he got older I always reminded him his rent was cheap free!  I get teased a lot about my passion for pink and all my girly things.  I'm sharing some of my pink bathroom treasures with you today in honor of my son's birthday!  :)  


And finally this is what I did to Darrell's room after he got married! 
Thanks for joining me today on this very special day.  Thank you to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for hosting our fun Pink Saturday each week! 

 I posted this at exactly 6:05 am which is the time you were born!  
Happy Birthday Darrell!
XOXO

  6. Oh my gosh Hanny, what a wonderful post!
    I can't believe Darrell is 36 now. You should really be proud of him, he is a sterling example of what more men should be like. He is a wonderful person and I'm lucky to have him as my cousin.
