40 Days for 40 Years

On Feb. 27th, Rick will turn 40 years old!! Yes, you read that right. I will be married to a 40 year old. That is crazy! Anyway, we are in the midst of 40 days of celebration leading up to Rick's bday. We began on Tuesday, representing the day he was born. His mom wrote a letter to him and sent pictures to give him. It is turning out to be a fun project for the kids and me and lots of other people that are participating.

I will share some photos throughout the month of the highlights of our days. Wed., represented his first year of life. When he was a baby, his family called him "Pooh Bear." So, on Wed., he woke up to Pooh decorations that the kids created along with "Princess First Bday" decorations(leftover from Laila's bday). It was hilarious and the kids loved it.
