Happy Birthday to The Daddy!

Sixteen years ago, the daddy and I decided that being engaged for 4 more months just wasn't going to cut it. We wanted to be married, so we got married. Texas has a 72 hour waiting period after getting a marriage license and that happened to end on The Daddy's 25th birthday. I sure hope he still likes his present from way back then! I think I got the better end of that stick! The daddy is a gem and the kids wanted to get him something special for his birthday. Here's what he is getting (he is working late from yesterday....still and hasn't gotten to get the scoop!).

This is Willow. That is the name the shelter gave her. The Daddy has the right to change her name. The 3yo calls her Sunshine. Isn't that cute?! She was found as a nursling puppy, eaten up with worms and starving. They believe she is part golden retriever and part something. We feel lucky that she seems to want to be a part of our family.

I think she is comfortable. :0)

So, happy birthday and happy anniversary to The Daddy. We love you very much!

Daddy definitely got the better end of that stick. I seem to remember you being the best thing that ever happened to him. Even though we had to beat him with the stick a little.
