Tomorrow is Christian's birthday. Since most of the world is preparing for another big birthday party this time of year, sometimes he gets a little bit forgotten...even by me. But, this year I've been doing the 12 Days of Christian* for him, in an effort to celebrate him as much as possible. Today is the 11th Day of Christian, which is supposed to be 11 pipers piping. Well, forget the pipes.

He's a caretaker.
|He weeds, mows the lawn, trims bushes, sweeps the porch, gets the mail, picks up after his girls, organizes closets, loads the dishes, oh, and he takes care of me and Rosie too.|
|He built me a square-foot garden and didn't hate me when most of our veggies never even flowered...or when I |
Happy Birthday (tomorrow) Christian!!
Love, your wife
