And then there was James...

My world sparkles a little more because my McHubby is a part of it.  Where would I be if he wasn't in my life?  With the creepy, goober-like USU cheerleader (or do they call themselves "stunt guys"?) who was SEVEN inches shorter than me and liked to serenade me with bad 80's ballads on his guitar???  (*Shudder*)

So today I celebrate McHubby's birth, because I think he's pretty spiffy!  (And let's face it, a member of "The Lollipop Guild" singing "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" is just not right.  It's not right, I tell you!)

Happy Birthday to James, a man who:

-once reassured me I DID NOT have cancer of the kneecap.

-got a little choked up when Lilly Mae was born.

-screamed (a very manly scream) in the movie theater, while watching, "I Am Legend."

-drove over fifty blocks (DURING A JAZZ GAME) to Crown Burger to get me the fries I was craving while I was pregnant with Cam.  (Sorry, but it HAD to be their fries.  Nothing else would do.  I'm sure some of you can relate to being prego AND crazy!)

-can quote "Better Off Dead" in its entirety.

-held me in his arms and let me cry on his shoulder when Cam Man was two weeks old and I was feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. 

-ALWAYS makes me laugh.

-loves me for me..."warts and all."

Happy Birthday, James!  You could have been a born-on-the-fourth-of-July baby!  To me, you're a real firecracker!
