10,000 Birthday and Crocs

Today, May 15, 2009 is my 10,000 birthday! Yes, that is right folks, I am 10,000 days old. I could tell you how old that is in years, but the raw day summation lends so much wisdom to my age, as if I am as old as Da Vinci. To celebrate, Amber will go to bed at 8pm so she can help with yard work and house cleaning (something she has grown unfamiliar with...). For those of you who forgot to mail me my birthday card...Shame on you! I expected flowers, chocolate, and 1,000,000 dollars. 
In reality I am just excited to have been alive for so many days. I would like to take this time to thank myself for being healthy and strong, good genes, and Trevor Wilbur for reminding me of my special day. The journey has been frought with numerous set backs such as multiple buzz cuts from Amber; being... like... the number one dad in America; and caring, working, and studying too much.
Below are some pictures of Greg celebrating such a special day.
 

 
In all seriousness, we would like to thank Grandma Dickens (skinny Lynnie) for thinking of Greg and finding him BYU crocs in preparation for BYU football season. Thanks! For my 20,000 day birthday, I do, however, expect more than gifts for Greg! :)
 
I know this post is long already, but I recorded Greg this afternoon jamming to one of our Garage Sale shopping finds - Playskool's Busy Basics Busy Ball Choo Choo. Greg loves pushing the trains main button and dancing to the music. Enjoy!

Happy 10,000 BDAY!!!!!!!! I am certainly happy that you have been alive for that long!

Noel I was wondering if you had read the book "An Ordinary Man" by Paul Rusesabagina and Amber, if you have read the book "The Mysterious Benedict Society" by (I don't know actually who it's by and am presently far too lazy to get up and look at my book shelf). Let me know if you haven't, because I'm going to bring you them in June!!
I can't wait to see you guys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know if you've noticed by my excessive use of exclamation points that I am a bit excited.
LOVE YOU!
Maren
