Shout out to my Birthday boy!

Today is the day my handsome husband turns 23 years old.  I don't think he will read this post, so I get to brag about him as much as I want without him getting embarrassed.  There is no one on this earth that is more patient with me than he is.  He is the hardest worker I know, and always strives to do the best he can in anything he is faced with.  I haven't been able to spend much time with him since we have been in Philly because the library is so demanding, but I am like a little school girl when I can hear his footsteps coming up our apartment stairs. He makes me laugh harder than anyone has before, and he strives to make me happy no matter how busy he is. 

There is never a dull moment with this boy.  When I was trying to take this picture, I was bugged for whatever reason and of course he sneaks up in the picture right as I am taking it.  How can I be bugged when I go back and look on my camera and see this face smack dab in the middle of what I was trying to get on camera?  He has now decided that it is "cute" when I get mad, and he laughs at me when I am trying to be very serious.  I am thankful for his positive attitude, and his sense of humor.  
I think Kade is 23 going on 8 sometimes.  He is like a little boy stuck in a man's body and it makes me laugh so hard.  He is a sucker for chocolate and loves Italian bread dipped in olive oil.  He is one person that likes cookies and milk before he goes to bed!  He is such a good sport when I cook, and encourages me when I need it. The boy never complains about anything-- I got very lucky!
I am grateful that I now have these people in my life, and it is all because of him.  I feel very lucky to be apart of such a great family.  Kade tries to be a good example to all, and loves talking to Rhet and watching him make decisions in his life.  When his family came to Paris to meet us for Thanksgiving last year, Paytie saw Kade and started running towards him.  They were all on the other side of a glass wall by the baggage claim and she couldn't find the exit to get to him.  We were all laughing pretty hard, but once she found it she ran straight to him and didn't let go.  He is loved by many and has been raised by great parents.  His Dad is an amazing example of a hard worker, and his Mom possesses the gift of charity more than anyone I know. 
Aren't I lucky?? Ahhhh...
And last but not least... I owe him everything for taking me here.

I am so grateful I get to spend the rest of eternity with my boy.  I am sorry this has turned so sappy, but it is a great day to brag about how blessed I am to have him in my life.  He is my best friend and the person I love being around the most.
