Happy Birthday!

Dear Dad,

Ah, what can I say about my Padre? You're an awesome Dad, an amazing Grandpa, and a great next-door neighbor (well, almost next-door).
You've raised and supported seven of your own children, and two years ago, added four more to your brood! You taught us all how to work hard, and the value of fixing things when they're broken. While I didn't walk away with many "handyman" skills, it wasn't for your lack of trying! You were always there to pump up a flat bicycle tire or fix a broken ceiling fan or install a fresh light bulb--no matter what size the task was, you were the man to call.
Over the years, you have embraced our ever-expanding families, son-in-laws, grandchildren, animals... with love and patience. I especially love to watch you with your grandchildren (even if you think its your job to spoil them--often with candy!).
We love being so close to you and Deb and her family, and also want to wish you a Happy 2nd Anniversary today! We love that we've had the opportunity to get to know Deb, Heather, Nicole, Amber and Katelyn and include them in our family.

So Happy Birthday Dad--and Happy Anniversary Dad and Deb!

Once again, a lovely tribute Ms Heather, and a happy birthday to Dad! One year older, and wiser too! It was nice talking to you today. Love you guys. Also, I am so so happy that Jaxon can wait to see about his belly button. Let us hope he can heal it on his own!
