Okay, I have a whole bunch to catch up on, but I decided I would start with November and go from there. My amazing husband had his 42nd birthday. I wanted to copy some one's idea and write:

Kenny, you are the wind beneath my wings. You had me at hello. You complete me. You make me want to be a better woman. Wow! Where are all these profound thoughts coming from. The mind is a curious thing. Anyway, I guess you get it. YOU'RE SIMPLY THE BEST! (better than all the rest...)
HAPPY 42nd BIRTHDAY!

Sounds to me like he'is pretty near perfect. And.....I agree I think you both got a pretty good deal when you got each other. I don't know about the HOT HOT HOT part, but everything else I sure agree with.

I love Kenny, too. I just didn't know exactly why, until now. You forgot to add that he lets you win at Settlers.

I, too, love Kenny, but in a older sister kind of way. I'm sure he learned to be such a good husband and daddy under the excellent tutelage of his three older sisters. He also did a very good job when he chose his wife.

What a cute idea, I was just wondering if Kenny could teach Bobby not to care when I don't do anything during the day :)

Rex and Paula said...

Very cute. I think we all learned a few things about Kenny we never knew--and he probably didn't want us to know. Happy belated birthday Kenny!

A Daily Double said...

44. He helped make really REALLY cute kids.
