Happy Birthday Greg!


We celebrated Greg's ?? Birthday on Friday. We were excited that he decided to take the day off and spend it with us. The morning began with breakfast in bed prepared by Sydney and Austin with a little help from Mom. Sydney insisted that we make French Toast and also made sure that I did not forget the special birthday plate. They were so excited to take the finished product upstairs on a tray and a candle too! Austin's eyes were huge and his face was priceless as they sang Happy Birthday to their dad.
I arranged for a 90 minute massages for both of us after lunch, which was heavenly. That evening we enjoyed a great dinner at Bombay House with friends and then cake and ice cream at our house.
At the end of the day Sydney asked, "Where are all Dad's presents?" I told her that the breakfast they made and his massage were his gifts this year. To which she responded, "Are you sure he is ok with that?"
And just how old is Greg now?? Just ask Sydney's primary teachers, she proudly announced it to them during class yesterday!

I am so glad you were able to post a new picture! We've missed your regular updates but I suppose having 3 kids plus sick ones is a good excuse :) love you guys and miss you too. I'm surprised how brown camryn's hair is. I expected her to be a blondie like her siblings.

Sounds like Greg had a heavenly birthday. Age is only a number-at least that's what I keep telling myself!
