Birthday Boy

The husband turns the big 3-0 today!! After his sweet birthday post to me, I have a little catching up to do.
All I can say is God knew exactly what He was doing when he put us together. We are mostly opposite. He is neat, I am not so much. He is not a morning person, I am. He has a brilliant engineer brain and can build/fix anything he puts his mind to. I am doing well to change a light bulb without messing something up. He is critical and realistic and I tend to see everything in a positive light. He likes intellegent questions, I like intelligent answers.  He reads the directions, I throw them away. He is my complement in every way :) As different as our personalities are, we love to do the same things and love to try new things together. He is usually game for whatever I put him up to:

exhibit A, Christmas party in dental school (of course we were dating and I am sure he was trying to impress me!)

He gives me the best surprises:
In the above pic, he surprised me with not one,  but two wedding bands as I liked one with sapphires as well. 

He is the best daddy. He is Lane's favorite, and Holden is well on his way as he laughed out loud for the first time last night to his daddy...

He takes me on the best trips ever. 
Blackberry Farm 2012
next month, Costa Rica!!!
He has a heart for missions and is the best business partner I could ask for. 

So James, I know you have a lot on your plate, but I am so thankful of where we are right now. I know one day we will look back and it will seem like yesterday we were always changing poopy diapers, watching endless Mickey Mouse,  and trying to decipher toddler talk and baby coos. 
I pray that your thirties bring a new decade of an increased portion of faith,  more peace in the natural, and more love and laughter as a family.
