Happy Birthday, Doodle!

Today is my honey's 40th birthday! :) This is him the other day in Natural Bridge, Virginia. He was looking up at an old tree. He hasn't had much of a birthday celebration but we're waiting for Brooke to get home and she should be home some time tomorrow night.

Happy Birthday, Honey! I love you!

13 Reasons I Love My Hubby

1. Because he has always taken very good care of me and the kids.
2. Because he scratches my back at night before I go to sleep, even if it is only for a few moments.
3. Because he NEVER makes fun of my horrible, loud singing to the music on the radio. :)
4. Because he ever-so-patiently waits for me while I'm taking 20 photos of the same flower, mountain, etc.
5. Because he has always been there for our kids, no matter what. He's at every sporting event, every banquet, every THING they do.
6. Because he always says that what I cook for him tastes great.
7. Because he holds me at night, mostly ALL night.
8. Because he helps out tremendously around the house.
9. Because of the way he smiles when he's trying his darndest not to laugh at something I say.
10. Because he spoils me rotten.
11. Because he loves to hike and camp and do all those sorts of things I love.
12. Because he only gripes a little bit when I force him to let me watch figure skating.
13. Because I just always, always have. And NOW that he's 40, he's officially loved ME for over half of his life. (o=
