Busy week!

Yes, it has been a busy week----four birthday parties, a Christmas party, a jewelry party, 2 trips to the doctor, and we did fit school in there also. But, one of the exciting events was an unplanned event---Andrew started riding his bike on 2 wheels. We have not really been riding bikes much lately. However, on Thursday, Andrew was outside playing, and I suddenly heard him yell, "Hey, I am doing it on two wheels." He was quite excited! When we went out last night, Andrew wanted to know if we could ride our bikes there :)

Of course, an important part of the week was celebrating two very special people's birthdays. The two most important men in the world to me---my husband and my dad! I am so thankful for both of them, in so many ways. Dad turned 60 (0r am I not supposed to tell), and I sent him a list of 60 memories that I had of growing up with him. It was quite fun to create and to remember. Gary is not close to 60, but he is reminding me (way too often) that we are approaching 40. He recently told me, "I still feel 20 some." What would I do without such a great friend, father, and leader? Our family would be lost without him. I love you, Gary! Happy #37!

Oh, I wish I had known it was your dad's birthday this week! We had him for lunch today in Rockford becuase he was speaking at our church. I love your parents!

What a great gift to your father.

Happy Birthday to all are catching up with me. Ha

I also do not use a slide show when I want your Mom to see the pictures.

Love, AJ

Omigosh! My husband's older than your husband! ...And I thought "we" were young! Just young at heart I guess! Of course, I'm not even in my 30's yet...hee, hee. Next year, though...sad.
