Happy Birthday Babe..and Dad!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIK!!!!


So today my lovely Husband is turning the BIG 41!!! Yes, if you are wondering, he is slightly older than myself (ha ha). Anyhow, I want this post to be a homage of all the things that we love about him. So, we have a top 5 from each family member...lets get ready..these are interesting!



Tarah's Top 5:

1. I love that even though I am a tough person to deal with some days (OK MOST), he still loves me. He knows how to calm me down when I am bent out of shape, how to hug me and make it all seem better. Thanks for doing the "Hubby" thing, even if sometimes you just want to put the keys in the ignition and peel out!


2. He has a pretty dry, funny sense of humor that after being married for 10+ years, I really understand and find quite amusing.


3. I love the way he plays with the kids and shows them EVERYTHING they need to know about sports (something I am clueless on). The boys LOVE that he will hockey fight with them, dunk and pitch, and even box if asked.



4. I love that when I stressed out the first words out of his mouth always are: "What can I do to help you?"


5. He makes ALL the beds at home. I am grateful to his mom and dad for that boarding school education because when I make the bed...they just don't look that nice =).

Jaxon's Top 5 About Dad


1. He takes me to games and coaches me on my hockey team.

2. He practices spelling words with me.

3. He snuggles to watch TV in my room.

4. He pushes me to be better at stuff. (Yes, "stuff" is the most general term alive."

5. He is a good Dad




Mason's Top 5 About Dad:

1. He gets me ice cream
2. He doesn't yell at me anymore (Ha, this one made me laugh a lot)..

3. He gives me medicine when I need it.

4. At my birthday party he played baseball.

5. I like when he picks me up from school.




This would be the cake that I would bake for you, except for the fact that we are trying to be eating healthy so this one is out of the question....The picture looks nice!
Hope your Birthday is Fantastic!!! We love you!
