I've known this could happen. With Mike and Lily's birthday being so close to Thanksgiving there's a chance it would land on this holiday every once and a while. And today it happened. So....
Happy Mikes-giving everyone!
Silly kids :)
And my gift for him. With Mike's birthday on Thanksgiving I wanted to share with him why I'm so thankful for him. But I wanted to take it a step further. Why others were too? So I sent out about 100 emails, give or take, asking for memories of Mike. About lessons he helped teach, advice that he had given, service he might have helped out with, or just a special story that this person shared with my hubby. And I got back 11 stories! Hey it's better than the 3 from before.
(1 note is from me) value him the same as I do. Some notes were from family, old friends, families he home teached, or old co workers. Not everyone wrote me back but those 11 people's note really touched his heart. So I guess there wasn't a need for anymore. Plus something amazing/unusual happened to him. He made more family call him to wish him Happy Birthday than ever before. He might get a few family members calling him to wish him a Happy Birthday But today the phone kept ringing non stop that we could barely watch our movie. Such a great sight to see :)
But since today's still Thanksgiving I made a traditional Thanksgiving meal. Turkey, potatoes, carrots, rolls, and tons of pies. So by the time cake came around everyone was sleepy and stuffed. But who doesn't have room for a small bite of carrot cake.
