Happy Happy Birthday Faisal Dear

Well, today was my little tiny Faisys birthday!!!!! He had a doggy party and it was doggone fun. Jenny went out of her way to make this an amazing birthday party for Fase. He had 5 of his friends come over for lunch and games and they actually got to be doggies for the afternoon. Jen made doggy ears for everyone and dog collars and painted everyone's nose, they were the cutest little doggies. There was also an amazing doggie birthday cake. How on earth did I give birth to such a genius daughter. I am so impressed as you will be when you see the pics.

To Eat or Not To Eat

Have I told you out there in bloggyland about my curse? Oh really, I haven't? Well fasten your seatbelts because here I go.
I have the curse of having a gluten sensitivity.
Can you even believe that, a gluten sensitivity.
That is ridiculous isn't it? I know it is the 'trendy' disease of the decade but to be honest, I have had this for the past two decades or so, so maybe you could say I started the trend. On second thought, I don't want to be held responsible for this disgusting disease. You don't really realize how much out there in the world is consumed and saturated by gluten. I know what some of you are thinking, what is the big deal, well I guess it really isn't a big deal if you don't have any tastebuds for a tasty piece of homemade bread straight from the oven, or a wonderful cinnamon roll dripping with the sweetness of lovely fluffy buttercream icing. And to be honest I don't have a strong craving for most bread products but dang if I don't have a hankerin' for a piece of scrumptious cake or a sugar cookie with pink icing or even a belgian waffle covered with strawberries and real whipped cream. (sob!)

Okay, now I have vented and caused you to see a side of me that is rather unattractive, and for that I profoundly apologize. Believe it or not I don't make other people aware of this malady but today I woke up rather swollen around the eyes and it is hard to hide this from the masses, so I VENTED!
Now that I have gotten that out of my system, I will move on and look for something to eat. I have suddenly become hungry!

You are my Son-shine

This is my son! He is exceptional on so many levels. He is an extraordinary husband and a truly loving father!

He has many struggles that he has worked hard to overcome. He is a Hero of mine!

He works hard to support his family and has given them a most comfortable home. I always feel welcome whenever I am there and love the feeling of family it emits.

He is a true friend to all that know him. I respect him so for his loyalty.

He plays games of all kinds, Football being his passion but he is just as adept at Settlers of Catan. He is a crack-up and a jokester.

His smile is radiant and his laughter brings the warmth of the sunshine into a room. This sound takes away all dark shadows that may lurk around any corners of my mind and it gives me peace.

He is my rock in times of turmoil, and my comfort in times of trial. I love that I have a son that will come whenever I am in need!

He has a testimony of the Gospel and teaches his children correct principles, Oh how grateful I am for his strength and his commitment.

He is just at home playing a full contact sport as he is comforting and cradling one of his beautiful sons. His compassion for these little ones overwhelms me.

I cherish this son of mine and thank my Father in Heaven for the spirit that I call my Ry-boy.
I Love you Son!
