Happy Birthday, Neil!

Neil turned 47 on the first of September.  It was a Tuesday and a normal busy school day.  Bethany, Julia, Joshua, Lydia and I decided to go get balloons and take to one of his classes when it was getting out.  It was a fun surprise.  We didn't put 47 candles on the cake, but we did put them in the shaped of  a 47.  Lydia really wanted to put Minnie Mouse on Neil's cake.  He is a good dad to little girls and he willingly let her put it on.  I hope it was a good day for Neil.  I wanted it to be special.

Neil is a wonderful husband and father.  I am so grateful for him and all he does to help our family click.  It was fun to celebrate Neil!  I love you!!!
