A little of this and that...

Well I thought I would post some pictures of my surprize birthday party. I was a little bit bummed this year as all my family members and friends told me they were either away or busy on my birthday. Let's face it... everyone likes to have a party at least I DO! Anyways the day arrived and Brad was great and gave me some nice presents, one of them being a facial! I LOVE FACIALS!! The plan was for Brad and I to go out for supper... alone which was fine with me. Of course I would of loved to have family and friends present but whatever. When we arrived at the restaurant low and behold my family and friends were there. SURPRIZE.. they had all tricked me and I fell for it. It was a pleasant surprize to have them all with me. I have to say.. I did well this year in the area of presents. I was spoiled (hehe and Christmas is right around the corner too.. smiles) As a kid I always made sure my parents made my b-day SEPERATE from Christmas so I didn't get robbed any presents. I was such a selfless kid hey?? :) Anyways Brad and I fly to Vancouver on Saturday to spend the holidays and new year with his family. It should be a alot of FUN with the FUNSTON family!(ha ha) Brad and I send our love to you all and hope you have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Happy Birthday Samantha!

As Stevie Wonder sings, "Isn't she lovely..."

Today my beautiful wife turns 26! Birthdays are a great opportunity to focus and reflect on the people that we love and remember why they are so special to us. I am very thankful for my wife and all of her many qualities. I love Samantha's heart for the Lord and her constant desire to be obedient to him. I love how she cares for people and is always eager to be generous and hospitable to those who come into our home. I love watching her when she holds a baby in her arms, as she sings and rocks them to sleep; I know she will make a wonderful mother one day (one day long from now!). I love how she is sensitive to the needs of others. Even though it may drive me crazy at times, I love to hear her sing. She has a beautiful voice. I love how she gets excited over a new shirt or a new pair of earings. I love that she is authentic. I love it when she makes me supper. Not only can she sing, but she is great cook. I love it when she smiles at me. I love that she is making me into a better person. I know I probably don't say it enough, but I love her and am very thankful that God has given her to me. It takes a very special person to be able to put up with me at times! She must be very special then.

Happy Birthday Samantha!
I love you. xoxoxoxoxox
