birthday boy.

Top 10 reasons to love Mike this year:

10. he loves potty humor. and so do i.
9. he is becoming a killer golfer! watch out, tiger.
8. he works his butt off! at school, work, and everything else he does.
7. he is quite the handy man (see our nursery for proof- he refinished that beautiful black dresser all on his own! go M!)
6. he cooked dinner for me multiple times this year- at moments of stress during pregnancy and teaching. what a man!
5. he has the sweetest smile.
4. he has almost conquered EXPERT on guitar hero! my knight in shining armor.
3. he has basically become a professional mover. seriously- UHAUL has a competitor in sight.
2. he makes me feel loved, beautiful, special, and appreciated every day. what girl can say that?
1. he is the most adorable daddy you have ever seen.

happy 25th birthday, Mikey. thank the heavens you were born.

love the collage! i could see ol' chandell in the background of some of those photos. good times. i hope mike had a good first "daddy birthday", as those always come with less play, but better presents (like ellie).

my website is back up and running. can we plan a little hour-long visit when you get back into town? we seem to find ourselves in k-town quite frequently. love you all.

It was so good to be with you o your actual B-Day!! You and Marci are hilarious playing Guitar Hero... and can't get over that Ellie does not mind that loud rock and roll. May 25 be everything that you dream and more! We love you Mike!
