Happy Birthday

For fear of embarrassing him, I'll keep this brief and mushy-less (well, probably not completely, but I'll try to limit the mush). Today was Aaron's birthday. I figured since I wrote a little post for the other 2 important people in my life, I'd write one for him too. :)
Everybody will tell you what a great man Aaron is, and they're 100% right (most of the time!:D). He's an awesome father, a wonderful husband, and most importantly, he's a child of the King of kings. If you would have told me I'd marry a city-slicker some day, I would have laughed at you. I always had in my mind he'd be a farm boy or better yet a cowboy. But you know what? God knew what He was doing when He put the 2 of us together. Aaron is my perfect "other half"--he makes me step outside my comfort zone and I make him develop some comfort zones! :) I honestly couldn't imagine spending my life and raising kids with anyone else. Okay, I better's getting a little mushy!
Aaron works so hard, every day, to provide for us. He makes many sacrifices and I don't thank him enough for that. He's wrapped around his little girl's finger and I can't wait to see him and Jacob enjoy sports together (he tries with Anna, but she usually just ends up dancing to the drums--or worse, wants to take a doll and accessories to a football game!!). It warms my heart to see him play with the kids. I keep hoping he'll warm up to babies, but I don't think it'll happen! Maybe we can try one more time, 'ey honey??? :D
Well, I'll stop before I embarrass him (maybe I already have and he'll tell me to remove this post tomorrow!). But I just wanted to tell everybody that I've got a great husband, our kids have an awesome Daddy, and we love him VERY MUCH! :)
Honestly, I'm not sure if Daddy had any less fun than Anna.....

Jacob has some very strong shoulders to ride on (they have to be to carry that tank around!)

Seriously, I'm so proud of him for running (finishing even!) a 1/2 marathon...again!!!
