Today is my husband's birthday! I could not be more proud of the man he is and the "older" man God is making him to be. I love you so much Matt!
27 Birthday spankings! (Matt and his brother, Pete, with the fly-swatter)
27 Kisses! (I hope this isn't too...)
Ok, a G-rated one:
27 gazes in your eyes!
Ok, since I can't give spankings, kisses, or gazes, I sent him a package of goodies. I'm still waiting for more pictures, but for now, I guess this is a picture of his favorite gift:
This was a hat I got at the Salvation Army and thought was hysterical. I couldn't stop laughing and my mom was asking me what was so funny. I saw that hat and thought immediately of Matt. (Yes, I am sleep deprived and so is he! We have both gone loopy!) It is of special significance because of the Hawaiian islands on it...he was stationed at Kaneohe Bay in Oahu the last time he was in....and it's just a silly "old man's hat" to me. It even has like air vents for breathability! He loves being goofy, and the fact that it is used gives it character. It was also marked like 58 cents, and it was a blue tag, so it was 50% off...how could I pass it up? So, judging by it's frequent use, I think this was his favorite gift (he sent me like 4 pictures in it and wore it while we talked after he got it)...Well, maybe besides that paintball gun I got him for when he comes home! Right, Matt?
*Oh, just 2 1/2 months! You're the best Bubbs!! I love you!! Happy Birthday!!
