Gary Turns 40

Today Gary turns the big 4-0.  We aren't having a big party as his request was just to spend some time with the kids (all-you-can-eat sushi is in the plans) and one-on-one time with me.  

I am so thankful for this man in my life.  I know he must miss the days of watching hours of sports uninterrupted on the couch but has has done such a great job at putting me and the kids first.  Parenting and marriage have encouraged us to become more selfless.  Not always a fun process but still a rewarding one.  Yes, we would like a little more time for just the two of us, but that will come, and for now we will appreciate our evenings on the couch together.

I have never been more happy to be married to this guy.  He sees the "big picture", loves us unconditionally, and makes us all feel special and important.

In honour of your 40th birthday, here is your favourite kind of poem, Gary:

G-great chef
A-always a nickname for everyone
R-ready to help
Y-Y chromosome recipient

We love you, Gary!
