There Will Be Cake

Our Daily Hank

This person is three today. Mister Hank, zooming 'round the sun! I can't believe we've only had him here for three years. His personality is so big. I've noticed that when I'm remembering things that happened before he was born, I retrospectively place him in the memory with us, in places he never lived.

And of course, there's this guy. Happy Father's Day, Matt! This is one of my favorite pictures of him, because it shows his "I'm concentrating" face. His Father's Day present is a trip for work, I guess. He just left for California, so we'll have to celebrate properly later.

This afternoon I'm going to go round up all the ragamuffins in the cul-de-sac and bring them inside for Hank's birthday cake. Then I need to get the house straight, and start the countdown for our Australia trip on Friday. Oh and I have to do a ton of other crap before then.

And have I mentioned that it is hot? Yesterday my car thermometer said it was 111 degrees. Not to change the subject. Have a great Sunday, y'all!

How can it be that three years have passed ?! Hank is one sweet little guy, and you're right about his big personality. The world is a happier place because Hank is in it !!

As a phrase the Odoms coined so well, "It is Hot as a Butt!" It describes the temperature perfectly. Happy Birthday to Hank! It is hard to believe he is already 3. I've heard that as you age time seems to speed up. I'm experiencing that in my life, especially in watching my grandchildren and nieces and nephews. I know you're excited about Australia! Have an awesome time. Kiss HANK AND LAURA for Aunt Kathy

What a bunch of cuties you have over there. It IS hot, I can barely stand it anymore.

Love the Ikea pillow... we have the same ones.

Hank, bro, you're looking good. Happy third!

Now, Matt, what is that fancy gadget you're holding? Are you trying to get beamed up? I think I'd be concentrating mightily too with a Star Trek contraption like that in my lap. Can I have one?

I'm all verklempt thinking that Hank is already 3! Wow. He looks like such a little man in that picture. Too cute! I keep thinking of when y'all just moved to ATL and had him--my memory of that time is you glued to the recliner, boppy in your lap, and Hank nursing round the clock. He was so little. Time flies!

Happy birthday, Hank!!

Hank is without doubt a world class dude! I hereby post fair warning to the world:

HANK IS COMING. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. ONE WAY, OR ANOTHER, YOU WILL DO HIS WILL.

Happy Birthday Hank! You rock, dude. Milk this day for all it's worth.

Bless him, he looks so grown up! Before I had children I always thought that 3 was really little still, now I know better.

Hope he had a Happy Birthday.
