Twenty nine

It's no secret that we are all apart of the Andrew Flegal fan club. Because he is the best, we tried to do our part to "fill up his bucket" on his birthday. "Fill up their bucket" is Kindergarten code for making someone feel good about themselves via a compliment, kind deed, offering help... the sky is the limit when it comes to trying to be a good person.

On that note, here are a few more birthday highlights:
 
 After a year + of employment at his Utah job, I finally took my children to see Andrew at his office. The plan was to drop off some balloons, pass out the plate of chocolate chip cookies and then go out to lunch. Because it was Andrew's birthday, when he asked if we could skip going out to lunch because it would make him that much happier having saved the money, I didn't make a fuss.
Happy Birthday Andrew! You've got sand now! It's the gift that keeps on giving, I tell you. That sand has multiplied! My house is generously FILLED with it on a daily basis.
So what's better than shooting guns, date night and a visit at work?! Adding to the aforementioned activities was the arrival of family on Sunday. Chicken curry is a solid WIN in our book and the company couldn't have been better. Thank you for making the drive up Flegals and Jensens!

Andrew is 29 now. Despite his wishes, I am going to recognize that it is an appropriate time to burst into accolades as I hail his achievements. Okay, I won't. Being that he is a humble fellow, I will simmer down the song and dance and just say that Andrew continues to excel in the work place. I couldn't be more proud. He is a most faithful Cub Master (of three wards) and dedicated to his little family. We love you!! Happy birthday.

I could not stop laughing at the phrase,

"Because it was Andrew's birthday, when he asked if we could skip going out to lunch because it would make him that much happier having saved the money, I didn't make a fuss."

That sounds just like Andrew. Sad we couldn't be there to enjoy the delicious curry and company.

Hard to believe that it was 29 years ago that Andrew made his 3 week early entry into this world. He has always done things on his terms and his birth was no exception. We've loved him, and it's fun to see him excel as a husband, father and in the workplace. What a blessing he has been in our lives. We love Him! Thanks for letting us share in the celebrations.
