Christopher's Birthday

Yesterday was Christopher's Birthday.
Ristow and I got up and decorated the kitchen and wrapped presents, letting Daddy sleep in a little. Ristow was beside himself with excitement. When I finally let him go in and wake up Christopher, Ristow jumped on the bed and sang Happy Birthday about 10 times. I think he wished him Happy Birthday about 100 times. He cheered during presents and says 'Here dad open your new book" He said that for each present, of course telling Christopher what each one was before he opened it. We haven't quite grasped surprises yet.
Ristow then spent the rest of the morning and afternoon with Grammy and Poppy, while I took Christopher out to breakfast and then we rented a canoe and did 7miles down the river. It was a wonderful day.
It was so great to spend that time with my husband, I am so thankful for him and for our relationship. He is such a loving father and husband and I am so proud of him and all that he strives for. He has chosen to make spending quality time with us a priority and for that I am truly grateful.
Happy Birthday Christopher.
