Happy Birthday Mr. C

Today is the day that Mr. C came into the world and made lots of people happy. Who couldn’t love a kid with a face like this?


He was an exceptional young man:

Catching fish for the family so they wouldn’t starve:


Digging them out from the blizzard of "52 (notice the stylin’ jacket!):


Always the snappy dresser:



a husband, he is a great travel companion:


Super grandpa:


A dog’s best friend:


And mine, too! (This was taken on one of our anniversaries. I had a picnic delivered to the house as a surprise.)


Happy birthday, Mr. C. You are the best thing that ever happened to me, even though I don’t say it enough, always remember this and that I love  you. (Wouldn’t it be grand if we could still fit into those clothes?)

    Don’t you love trips down memory lane. It looks like you have had a lot of happy years, and I wish you many more.
    It’s fun to look old pictures of the grandparents, and then at new pictures of the grandchildren. Jen
