Erik's Birthday Celebrations
Thursday, April 18, 2013
I know, I know I've been writing about Erik! I promise the next blog will be about me and my back sliding!
Erik started announcing his birthday a couple of weeks ago, and as we got closer he got more excited-like he did as a child. For the family this was a milestone, because when we celebrated his 38th because we were so glad he was alive he was a bear!

This year the excitement and anticipation really rocked. We had family over Sunday and celebrated the three April birthdays of the immediate family. Later that day, we had several of his friends.
On his Birthday, April 17, I surprised him at Glancy with cake and a bunch of his friend there. The ladies even decorated for him. He was happy, then in the evening his buddy came and took us both out to dinner.

Well at least one of my 40 + was happy to celebrate. Thanks for all of the well wishes for Erik's birthday. We have had a rocky road the last almost three years, and it is so good to feel y'all's loving and caring! Thank you!
