to you

picture taken one year ago by dear friend christa carmel

I love the fact that you...
never complain that we have too many kids, too soon, too close together, and that life is too chaotic.
And you're not even opposed to God giving us more.  Amazing.
(after reading this you assured me you were definitely not opposed to making more)

You spend every moment with your kids, a constant source of entertainment.
They think you're hillarious.
I do too.

I love the fact that you...
are as honest as the day is long.
Even when it is hard sometimes to know whether you're joking or not.

You will drive all the way to the movie theatre for movie popcorn and claim your pregnant wife was having cravings...
while it's the same every pregnancy--you're the one with the cravings!

I love the fact that you...
Are an original.
And not afraid to be less than perfect.
But always willing to let God mold you.

Thank you for loving us as completely as you do.
In case you haven't noticed, we're crazy about you too.
