We have a special tradition in our house where the birthday boy or girl gets their favorite breakfast on their birthday (no matter what day of the week it falls on). This goes back to Mommy's younger days when Ma-Ma and Pa-Pa used to do this for me on my birthday. So on Randy, I mean Daddy's birthday, he picked doughnuts from the new Donut Palace. The only problem was when Mommy got to the Donut Palace--they were closed! There was a small sign on the door: "NOTICE Closed Every Monday Starting 01/12/09" Yeah, thanks for the advance notice! So...quick change of plans--Krispy Kreme doughnuts from the Shell Station. Oh well, it's the thought that counts, right? I rushed back home just in time to sing Happy Birthday to Daddy and give him his presents before hurrying off to another day of work.

It's really cool because you put it in the freezer and you don't
need any ice or you can use it for hot beverages also. She just
liked how cool it looked!
What could this be from Harrison?! You'll have to see later!

Happy Birthday Daddy! Only 1 more year until the Big 4-0!
I wear many hats, but the ones I am most proud of are wife, mom, and teacher. I am married to my college sweetheart and the best man ever, Randy, and we have 2 beautiful children, Caitlin and Harrison. We are so blessed by God and try very hard to give back to our community. I teach first grade to some of the best students in the world. Some days I feel like I'm going crazy, but with God's help, I know I can make it!
