This Month is Such a Special One . . .

This month is such a special one,
it's birthday time for you . . .


We'd really like to celebrate
this happy day with you!


So zippity ay and heigh dee ho
there's something we can do . . .


We'll sing a song that we all know
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!


That's me, singing my favorite birthday song to a couple of the favorite men in my life.

Today is Norm's birthday, he's one past the big one today. I know sometimes he wondered if he'd ever last this long. Thankfully for me, I finally think he's outgrown the motorcycle riding, the skydiving and the holding your breath under water in a bucket game.

(a very old photo I dug up from 1977 when Norm used to jump out of airplanes with his best friend Scott)

Tuesday - it was the birthday of my first born. An experience that never fails to fill a parent with wonder, somehow just one notch above the wonderment of each proceeding childbirth experience. Dustin and Cami celebrated all by their lonesomes in Raleigh North Carolina. I don't know if they missed us (I understand they made homemade ice cream!) but we celebrated and we certainly missed them. I love that Cami blogged about it! (Happy Birthday - Dustin) Now if I can just figure out this webcam thing and the skype thing . . .

(Another birthday, a very long time ago . . . like 25 years ago)

And so . . . best wishes for these two special men in my life.

Happy Birthday to you!
And may you accomplish all your greatest desires for this upcoming new year.

Happy Birthday Norm! I am sorry that we forgot. Things have been a little crazy around here, but still, we are so sorry!

Happy birthday. Love the pictures from way back when. I have three birthdays in our family within one week and it is the first part of June. Have a great week.

Happy Birthday to your men! And now that I have survived the "big one" I am wondering when your birthday is.
