Good morning and Happy Birthday to my first – Alyssa, and my last – Joey!
I remember this day 23 years ago.
And I remember this day 11 years ago.
Both were amazing…
….you both are amazing!
Grad school and football.
Anecdotes and Sarcasm.
The Civil War and Friday Night Smackdown.
Work and play.
So different, yet so alike in many ways.
Now, just for you, I got the table all fancied up for birthday dinner.
I went all out for you.
Can’t you tell?
Lots of color.
Candlelight and turkeys.
Sunlight streaming through the windows on a Pacific Northwest November day.
That is all my doing of course.
Just for your birthday.
With squirrel toppers (just for your dad.)
The table is set.
Ready for birthday dinner.
Okay then – be sure to let me know when dinner is ready!
I’ll be in the den with my feet kicked up thinking about how lucky you are that I brought you into this world!
23 years ago…
… and 11 years ago.
Happy Birthday!! We love you!
