Dr. C Gets Another Year Older

We are currently taking a break from our Summer Travel Log programming, for Dr. C's birthday.  And since Dr. C is the love of my life, he deserves a whole post  dedicated to him on his special day.
 Happy Birthday Dr. C--here are 10 Things I Love About You:
(in no particular order)
 10. You make me laugh.  A lot.

9. You go along with all of my crazy schemes.

8. You rescue me when all of my crazy schemes get out of control and I'm in over my head.  Like the time I did a full-on luau for T-Man's first birthday for 50 people with the ocean/island/volcano/hula dancer cake that took me a week to make and you ended up cooking all the food as I finished the decorations and icing palm trees.  Thank you for waiting until after the party to tell me that I could never do that again.

7. You trust God and walk by faith.
 6. You are an extremely hard worker--like that last year of grad school when Miss B was born and it was crazy stressful and yet you busted your butt to write the last 3 chapters of your dissertation so you could be done with it before Miss B's open heart surgery, which then meant you could graduate on time and start working to provide for our little family right after graduation.  Even though it was wicked hard, you did it.  And you still work hard everyday to provide for our family and to make our lives easier.

5. You know how to fix just about anything; or, if you don't know how, you will figure it out.  Like all the times that the dryer has something random break and I want to just buy a new one, but you figure out how to fix it so it works even better than before.

4. You set a good example for our children by being honest, trustworthy, loyal and genuine.
3.  You do the dishes, fold laundry, change diapers, vacuum, mow the lawn without complaint...and one of the first things you say everyday when you get home from work is, "What do you want me to do?"

2. You've seen me at my worst and you still love me anyway.
 1.  You're my best friend and I couldn't make it through life without you.
Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!!

I made these Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcakes for Dr. C's birthday...find the recipe at Out of My Sister's Kitchen.

This is random, but for years I've thought that Fearless looks like Brannon. Now that you've posted some recent pictures of Darrin, I totally see him in Fearless.

Happy Birthday Dr. C!

[The other thing I got out that post, other than crazy amounts of sweetness: You hosted a luau for 50 and made a volcano hula cake?!?! w.o.w.]
