Happy Birthday

I have been pretty lucky throughout my life, but I have been blessed to have a wife like Jaynann. Not only does she put up with my weaknesses, she tries to make them stronger. I do not give her enough credit for what she does for me and for our children. She is patient, loving, smart, and beautiful. All she wants to do is the right thing. She has a pure heart that welcomes everyone into our lives and I love her for her everything she stands for.

I asked Talon what his favorite thing about mom was and he said "playing with mommy and helping her make treats." She makes our kids feel loved and important. I hope that our kids can have the many wonderful qualities that Jay has to offer. Late last night we decided that she could go get a nice quiet night and morning at her mom's house. Its kind of a treat to wake up in the morning when you want and to get going when you feel like it because you know kids like to wake up around 6:30 in the morning. This morning Talon came rolling out of his bedroom and he asked, "where is mom?" About 30 minutes later, I hear Tyler yelling from the bedroom "mommy! mommy! mommy!" I went to take him out of his crib and he swiped my hand away because he wanted Jay to come get him. I don't think she realizes how much her kids love and miss her even when she is gone for 1 night.

I am sure Jay will see this and kill me for posting pictures without her permission, but it was worth it. While I was writing this I thought I might not have to write a card for her, but she loves them so much that I will probably have to come up with something for her. Would it be bad if I just copied what I wrote here into a card and called it good? Probably not, so maybe some flowers and a card would be a nice birthday treat. Happy Birthday Jay, we love you.
Eric, Talon, and Tyler.
