happy

How do I adequately pay tribute to my favorite person on his birthday? Do I gush about his financial and organizational skills that seem to make up for the lack of mine? Do I go on and on about how he helps me everyday with housework and keeping the kids happy?Do I wax poetic about his optimism and willingness to see past all of my flaws and about how he happily wakes up in the middle of the night to offer to rub out the cramp in my foot or just talk because I can't sleep, only to wake up at 4:30 everyday to go exercise because he has incredible will power (and early-waking genes)?
Or maybe I simply say that he is the best friend a girl could ever have and that I LOVE that I KNOW he LOVES ME. I love him too.
Happy Birthday babe!

Hi, uh, Mark? This is George from the Elders Quorum. I'm having some really bad gas issues and I'm a gonna need you to come over and pull my finger. We're moving and we need you to find us some boxes, about 200, and then help us clean out the garage and move our piano, by yourself...

Oh Emily's comment is classic Mark. This year though he switched it up with the "heavy breather" technique at least on my birthday. Happy birthday Mark!

happy b-day Mark or should I say Akela. I have to agree that a husband willing to rub out leg cramps at midnight is a great quality that I also appreciate.

Happy Birthday to Mark! Hoping his organizational skills will help me in Cubs (and oh yeah, all the Bear leaders will now expect foot rubs at the next Cub Committee mtg) Just kidding, hope Mark has a great day.

So sweet. I don't know him, but I think you two are perfectly matched.

Happy Birthday, Mark! I love Emily's comment. I've had some good laughs today reading that again and again. Oh, yes, Mark, we love you and appreciate you so very much!! And by the way, if you EVER do need that ten-spot, I'm good for it.

This post actually gave me goosebumps. Mark is such an incredible person, and the only one worthy to match your incredible-ness. Happy Birthday, Mark! I am jealous of you b/c you get to hang out with Sarah--if she was my wife, I'd be nice to her too!:) You are both lucky.
