Happy Birthday

Today is Daniels birthday, so I dedicate this post to him.

"Sometimes I wonder, is this a dream or is this true?

I can't believe I'm lucky enough to spend my life with you!"

3 things you may not know about Daniel:

-Daniel says he isnt a picky eater, but he is. He hates combined food textures- he cant have anything crunchy with something fluffy. He hates onions- if something has onions it makes him sick.

-Daniel cries. Rarely, but it happens. The last time we watched Charlie, he cried.

-Daniel is an amazing chef. He makes the best BBQ chicken pizza ever.

3 things you probably know about Daniel:

-Daniel loves motivational audio Cds- like Tony Robbins, Earl Nightingale, Napolean Hill, etc.

-Daniel loves toys. For Chirstmas he got a dart gun and Isaac gave him a remote control Helicopter and both things entertained him for days!

-Daniel loves the heat of Arizona in the summer. thats why we will probably never move from this desert waste land.

3 things I admire about Daniel:

-Daniel is extremely patient. It is really hard to get him worked up or upset.

-Daniel doesnt complain. EVER.

-Daniel is compassionate. He is understanding and non-judgemental. He cares about people and tries to help when he sees a need.

3 things about Daniel that make me smile:

-Daniels dance moves. He puckers up his lips and does a little shimmy that cracks me up.

-How extremely tickelish he is. The guy goes down quicker than a gunshot if he gets tickled. If my nephews knew this, they would have him conquered anytime they wrestle.

-How he looks when he is cold. He curls up with a blankets and looks like a little kid. Its really quite adorable.

3 things about Daniel that drive me crazy but ultimately I love:

-The guy never speeds. Oh it drives me nuts. But at least we get where ever we are headed safe and without any tickets.

-He rarely argues with me. Sometimes I just want a good debate, but if he has a different opinion, he keeps it to himself and lets me carry on. Oh it makes me bonkers, but I understand he does it so that I dont end up all ticked off cuz he doesnt agree.

- He is usually right. Again it drives me crazy, but I am glad I am married to a man who is intelligent, even if I am wrong sometimes.

3 things about Daniel that I find endearing:

-I love the father he is. I love the way he wrestles with the kids when he gets home. I love the way he comforts them when they get hurt from wrestling. I love how he teaches and encourages them. I love that he gives them a different perspective than I do.

-I love than Daniel is romantic. I love that he still gets the door for me, holds my hand when we are walking, asks me out on dates, and writes me love notes.

-I love Daniels testimony. I love his insights and understandings and thoughts about the gospel.

Things about Daniel that I want to say:

Daniel is my best friend. He is the love of my life. He is a strength and support to me. He is an example. He is genuine. He is kind and compassionate. He is thoughtful. He is generous and selfless. He is adorable. He is honest. He is patient. He is quick to forgive. He is adventerous. He is determined. He is strong. He is sensitive. He is enjoyable to be around. Daniel is everything I ever hoped for in a companion. He truely makes my days brighter and I am forever grateful to spend my life with him.

Happy Birthday Daniel! I love you!

Happy Birthday Daniel! I loved reading all those fun facts about you! And all of those traits that Kim was listing are things that you can truly see in you. You're one great guy! However, I didn't know you can make B-Q chicken pizza! I think we need to make a tradition when you come up! You guys come to our house and Kim can make cookies while you make the pizza! And sorry, I think I might just have to share the ticklish tidbit with the boys!
