HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATRINA!!!

The occasionally mentioned and rarely photographed husband here.....

Today is Katrina's birthday (sorry, I can't tell you her age). Since she and I already spent a couple of days in New York last week, Katrina made me promise that I wouldn't buy her anything more for her birthday. Well, I couldn't just sit back and do nothing, so I thought I would write her a quick public note and invite her fellow baking bloggers to offer their best wishes as well.

Katrina never ceases to amaze me. While I am at work all day, she somehow manages to take care of four boys, keep the house from falling in (due to the four boys), and yet still find time to bake some of the most incredible food. I know how jealous many of you must be of me that I have the privilege of not only seeing all of the wonderful food she makes, but I actually get to eat a lot of it (I am often given the instructions to make certain goodies disappear so she won't eat them). It's a miracle that I don't weigh twice what I do :-).

I often tell people that Katrina is the one that works in the family. I just happen to be the one that gets paid for what I do. I would never be able to fully put into words and convey the gratitude and love I have for my dear wife. I feel that I will never be able to repay her for all of the wonderful things she does for this family. However, I look forward to many more years of trying to do so. Katrina, I love you and will love you forever.

To her blogging community: I want to thank you for being such good friends and supporters of Katrina and this blog. Many of you have become close friends to Katrina and she feels like she knows you so well even though she may never have met you in person. If you can, please take a moment and wish Katrina a Happy Birthday.

Thanks...."The Husband"

Woke up, got online this morning and had no idea Kevin did this. I'm so embarrassed, but he said I can't delete it. Sigh!
So, yeah, it's my birthday!
I do love this blogging community of friends--and my friends and family who know and love me anyway!
Thanks, All!

I tried calling you on your birthday, but on Sat I rarely get a chance to do the blog thing, so I will have to write a day late. Happy Birthday TREENI!!! I do know how old you are, but you don't look a day over 25. How cute is Kevin. Love you!!!

Katrina,

My heart is full thanks to the love and support from many sweet friends, you included. Happy Birthday! I hope that you had a wonderful day. Even the thought of you trying to make it down to Ok for the funeral amazed so many of my friends. Blogging pals are great. Thank you again for all the kind words.

Love,
