Happy Birthday to John!


Today is John's Birthday! The girls and their men are came over and had a picnic to celebrate his birthday and Father's Day. I took John to breakfast this morning at our fav breakfast place called Skillets. I took him to Lowe's so he could get a cordless drill set he wanted and a firepit. We came home and he still insisted on mowing the lawn and putting the firepit together!

We have been married for almost 32 years (it will be 32 on Aug. 11th). We have had the 2 girls and now are expecting our first grandson next month. We have been through ups and downs in our life with jobs, homes, children, etc., etc. but we are still forever in love! He is such a good man, husband, father and will be an awesome grandfather! Some times I just don't know what I would do without him and I hope I never have to find out!

Happy Birthday Sweetie!! I hope you love your day today!

And, I sure hope you never find out what it's like being without John. Elbert and I were married 60 years before i lost him in Jan. So, yes, enjoy that good man of yours every day... and wish him a happy birthday from someone he doesn't even know (me). I can just imagine how much you two will enjoy your new grandson. Hugs, Latane

Thanks everyone!

Lori-too hot here in Charlotte for the firepit, but we will get lots of use out of it I'm sure!! I hate to admit it but I've never had a Smores, so that is on my bucket list for this Fall :)!

Awww, what a nice post about your hubby. He IS a handsome man!
I'm sure John feels the same about you Sherri.
If I may ask...what color is that on your bedroom walls? I've been obsessing over it for a while now.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Hugs,
Debbie

Congrats to him! How old were you when you met - you must have been pretty young, huh? :-)

Sherri said...

Tina, I was 19 when I met John, married him at 20 and had our first child, Megan at 21! He's a great guy!!

Debbie, I don't know what color the walls of our bedroom is. The owners of the house didn't leave the paint for that room. We will be painting our room a silvery gray probably starting next weekend. Sorry!

Happy Belated Birthday John! You are both lucky to have each other!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
