Today is such a special day for me. For one, it is my brother Mike’s birthday and secondly because my firstborn son was born on this day.
Mike, I was just thinking how funny that for almost 10 years I have been teasing you that you are almost 40. This will be the very last year that I get to do that!! Next year you will be 40!!! I know, I know. . .it won’t be long and I will be there too. So, Mike, if you are reading this today. . .Have a wonderful Happy Day. I love you!

This morning I awoke with birthday thoughts on my mind and got up to prepare Julian his special birthday breakfast. He chose “birthday eggs”.
Tom brought up his gift from the garage and put it in plain view of the breakfast table. After shooing Jaden off of it over and over, Julian came and in and gleefully accepted his prize. He had picked out the bike at Walmart and was thrilled to get it.
Here is Julian 6 years ago when he was born and a picture of him today.
What six years of time can do. . .
He was such a gift from God after 9 years of no kids, we finally had a little bundle to raise. He has been a joy to us. It has been amazing how much he has grown up this last year. I think going to Kindergarten has turned him into a little man. He loves doing artwork and gracing all our walls with his pictures. He loves superheros, running and he has a very funny sense of humor. He adds so much to our home.
Happy Birthday, Julian!! We love you so very much!
