my birthday boy.

I remember Paul's 20th birthday like it was yesterday. German chocolate cake, presents, and most of all, he was my missionary. Who would have thought I would be spending Paul's 31st birthday with him?! Over the years birthdays have changed. Paul's birthday may or may not get a little overshadowed by Van's being two days later. I would love to say today is a day all about Paul, but business as usual for the most part. Our evening will be spent picking out Van's birthday presents, a dinner of Paul's choice or maybe Van's, and a movie. If I get motivation or a spare moment, I might make some cupcakes or something. Here is where you feel bad for Paul...his lame wife didn't even buy one gift. ;) I have no idea where I would be without Paul. I feel lucky that he is my partner in all things. Since Paul's last birthday our marriage has changed 180 degrees, a blessing indeed. As I watch our family grow in size, I feel over-joyed to be on such an awesome adventure with such a great man. Paul is always looking for ways to improve our situation, and make Van and I happy. Paul has a constant look of "deep thought" on his face, because I don't think that he ever stops worrying over us.
Last night while we sat over Del Taco and discussed plans of today, I apologized for not doing anything. Paul looked at me and said "I am doing what I want, I get to spend time with my family! I have the most amazing wife." Nice huh? I then proceeded to throw up on my food, no joke!
Although I didn't buy any presents for Paul that doesn't mean that I don't love him to the ends of the earth. Van and I really are very lucky girls, and Vin is lucky too!

We love you, Daddy! Happy Birthday!

I thought it said that PAUL threw up on your food, and I thought that was a little odd. And slightly rude. But he's the birthday boy, so he can be rude if he wants.

THEN, I re-read. Sorry you threw up on your food.

And Happy Birthday to Paul!
