Thirty One Years Ago Today....

....in a land far, far away, (North Dakota) ,this sweet little baby was born. Who knew that this tiny bundle of joy would change my life forever....literally.

The little baby grew into a fiesty little boy. And had the gift of bringing life and laughter into the lives of those around him.

The fiesty little boy grew into a handsome young man who dreamed of becoming a sports broadcaster and finding a cute girl along the way.

The handsome young man then grew into the man of my dreams. He won my heart with his quick whit, loving heart and devilish good looks.

This handsome young man is still the man of my dreams, and the best father ever, to our two beautiful girls. Even though the sports broadcaster thing didn't work out, he still managed to find the cute girl. And he lived happily, yes happily, ever after....

Thanks for picking me to be along for the ride of your life....
Happy Birthday Aric, I Love You!

Awwwwww! Such a lovely birthday tribute! I am not at liberty to comment on the handsomeness of your hubby ;) that might be inappropriate but, the two of you make a HANDSOME couple! (and by the way you are seriously a beautiful girl.) What is it with you Liberty Lakes girls...you, Jessica, Ilene? Must be some good water over there. (even though Ilene is moving to *sniff* Boise...sorry to bring up something so painful...I digress...)
I love your descriptions of him as he grew up, using words like Feisty, and devilish good looks.

I have a house full of fiesty young men...you give me hope they will grow into great husbands and fathers.

We love Aric! Can't wait to come home to the party!

That is so nice. I am so not good at tributes like that. My husband told me the other day, that I don't talk about him on my blog. I felt bad... especially when I see stuff like this... Are you coming for the bachelor on Monday? :)(This is NOT Glenn)

Happy Birthday Aric!! I was going to do a nice tribute to Todd for our 15th Anniversary. I never did. I suck. I guess I could do it now and back date it to our Anniversary. That would still count right? Hope you guys have a fun celebration! Cute pictures!

Penny said...

P.S. Every time I see Linsey comment, I think she looks a little like Drew Barrymore in her picture. I'm just saying...

I don't think I've ever met two people more meant for each other. I mean- the story of how you guys met- come on!!! You were both so meant for one another. Happy Birthday Aric! Make Jess throw you a party so we can come over and hang out.

I didn't see any Chuck Norris pics in there, but Happy Birthday Aric. That last picture definately shows off those handsomely good looks - great pose.

Lindsey said...

You are freaking me out. We posted one minute apart on Penny's blog. I had to post b/c she said she thinks I look like drew barrymore. Are you gonna watch the bachelor tomorrow night? I am back in town! I live just down the street from Kara B. :)

What a great post! I'll just say what Lauren was thinking-you got yourself a hottie! Congrats and happy birthday to your man!

Jess and Aric---
1. I feel really bad that I never call you guys!
2. I made a blog so I can be all caught up in your lives and vice versa, it seems I'm out of the loop with family info nowadays.
3. Usually I'm always on top of birthdays and reminding everyone to call everyone on their birthdays...and I feel awful I completely spaced Aric's. I LOVE YOU AND HOPE YOU HAD A WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY!
4. Tell the girls hi for me, give them big hugs and tell them I miss them!
