Happy Birthday Shane!

29 Reasons why I love you My Shane....
  1. You are the funniest Daddy EVER. No one can make us laugh like you!

  2. You are always willing to give me a break away with the girls or just a night of shopping.

  3. You are understanding of the sheer craziness of me and my Mom and sisters =).

  4. You are still a HOTTIE and have the sexiest southern accent =)!

  5. You are IT to Claire. There is no one is this world she loves more than her Daddy. She cannot wait for you to come home every night and tell you all about her day. There is nothing like the sense of peace and security you give her when she is in your arms. I know because I feel the same way.

  6. You are Owen’s best friend. He looks out the window every night when I start cooking dinner, waiting on you to pull up. He is going to be such a powerful and strong man one day with you as a role model.

  7. You are a great Christian role model to our kids.

  8. You are a great Christian role model to me.

  9. You have been and are the most stable person in my life, you give me an ease of comfort in ALL situations.

  10. You have been there for me in the hardest times of my life and never left my side.

  11. You allow 5 Christmas trees in our house =). You also allow only Christmas movies to play on the TV / DVD player for a month straight =).

  12. You always know the weather.

  13. You can fix almost anything…master of Super Glue =).

  14. You have given me 2 beautiful children…and are still willing to have one more =).

  15. You still tell me “I love you” every night before we go to sleep.

  16. Even after two pregnancies, you can make me feel beautiful, always.

  17. You support me in my career even when it means staying with the kids as I travel or working late.

  18. You still get jealous =).

  19. You will dance with me even though I know you are hating EVERY minute of it.

  20. You are the first person I call for everything. I am still yours.

  21. You are the greatest dinner date. My favorite time with you is out to dinner, ALONE =), just talking over drinks and good food. I still get the funny feeling in my stomach when you hold my hand when we are out.

  22. You love to entertain just as much as I do…even though you gripe sometimes, I know you love it.

  23. You will let the dogs out in the middle of the night.

  24. You will wash your socks in the bathroom sink before you will gripe to me that the laundry is not done.

  25. You rarely ever get upset over anything. You let me have my moment and then it is over =).

  26. You carry Owen every night and walk him to sleep.

  27. You are willing to load up in the car anytime and just drive around until the kiddos fall asleep.

  28. You are so dedicated to your job and have done so well. You are the hardest worker I have ever met, but yet you still keep us a priority.

  29. You came back after me 12 years ago and gave me the feeling of love that will forever live in me.

Happy Birthday!! We love you sooooooooooo much!! One more year until the 3-0!!!
