We love hearing a grandchild tell us that he knows his birthday dinner at our house is coming up and that he is excited about it. The first year we moved to giving our grandchildren dinner with us for their birthday present, they didn’t know what to expect. Now they have experienced a couple of them and look forward to them.
The first half of the year has the majority of the birthdays of our grandchildren and then Covid pushed a couple back a bit, so we have had almost weekly birthday dinners for the past couple of months.
Our time is relatively simple. We start at 5:30 and end about 8:00. During that time we eat, talk, play games, and have Bible time. Most of what we do with our grandchildren is not individual time so this plan gives us the opportunity to focus on just that one grandchild.
We are trying to think of some more creative things to do at home with our grandchildren on their birthday dinner nights. Do you have any suggestions?
Trusting in Jesus,
“I have no greater joy than to hear that
my children walk in truth” (3 John 1:4).
