Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday, baby!!  You are an amazingly beautiful woman!  I love to hear you laugh out loud about silly stuff and how you have helped me to laugh at small stuff.   It takes a very courageous person to do what you do everyday...and to put up with me as well.  I am amazed at how you listen and really get to know people, even the babies; which might explain the love of reality shows:)  Watching  the kiddos climb into your lap for story time is so cool and the excitement that glows in their eyes when you come into the room shows how awesome a momma you are.  I love you babe!!

Surprise!  Happy Birthday!!

Howdy Momma!  Happy Birthday!

Yea!  Birthday Cake!!

Smile Big Momma!  It's Your Birthday!!

Chris - Thank you for such a sweet birthday post! That picture of the babies on the couch this morning while you let me sleep in (as always!) is so precious! Can't say I'm too happy about being older than you again but I do enjoy being wiser. ;) I love you, sweetheart! Thanks again. Love, Me

Hope you had a great birthday! It looks like you are all doing so good! Wish we could come and visit sometime. Not sure when we will be back in Texas though. I think about you all often. If you ever want to e-mail me you can. It would be great to catch up.
