Birthday Boy

Chad's Birthday today consisted of taking care of Branch business in the morning, and then spending the entire rest of his day tending all of the children while I helped the Branch with the Youth fundraiser, making tamales. Maybe he will see my new cooking skills as an even trade for a day spent parenting alone on his birthday. Maybe. I think it was one of those seven-mile-run things. You do it because you want to, and you have a great attitude about it, but man, you're sure tired at the end. I made it home in time to give him his presents, wrapped in the bags I bought them in. He played for a minute with the kids and his new "Sky Ball", and then we sent everyone off to bed. I got to enjoy an hour or so of the company of the man I love so much. Do you know, last night, on our way home from our date, Chad said to me, "I love everything about you."
I laughed and said, "It's not all loveable!"
He looked into my soul and said, "It is to me."
I am so lucky. Happy birthday, Babe.
