Happy {Birthday}



I'm not about to get all mushy on your ashes, but it is my BFF's Birthday {or atleast is was here yesterday, it's still going on there} and I just want to give him a shout-out.

He is such a great father and the kids just can't get enough of their Daddy. Laine is always saying {seriously, many multiple times a day} "I miss Daddy. I want him come home wif us" -pouty sad face ensues, violins play. She is daddy's girl all the way, and since day one he has been her #1 fan too. These two just can't get enough of each other.

Gabe is always asking for Daddy too, and has some meltdowns in the morning when it's time for him to go. He loves to wrassle and play with Dad and has now begun asking for him all day, on Laine's que.

As for me, we always eat at the restaurant I want to eat at, watch my favorite shows at night, go to movies I want to see. Ben understands that I am the woman, and so I need to get my way. Oh but I kid. But seriously, Ben is very thoughtful and generous with his will, which makes him the perfect husband. He really is very good to alway give in to keep the peace, and he is usually first to say "I'm sorry". He is a lot of fun too! The man comes up with some serious puns and one liners, I don't care what you say Jess!

Happy Birthday ya Bastage! I picked the photo where you look the best and I look not-so-good to show you how much I love you.

Hope Bens birthday was fun...it was so good to talk to you on instant mess. the other day. Love the post and seeing the pictures.

Happy, happy birthday Ben! Hope it was great, or that you will at least celebrate over the weekend. Is Ben's birthday better to celebrate when you live in a foreign land, so he doesn't have to have his birthday right next to a national holiday? I imagine that he has always had to share his birthday festivities with Independence Day.

Nat, this was a great post. That Ben really is a great guy isn't he? I always thought he was just a pretty face, but your post has helped to understand the remarkable depth of his character. Hopefully other people will read this post and write lots of nice things about him because I am sure he would like that. Happy Birthday me...uh I mean Ben!

I'm convinced Ben had to move to the other side of the planet so he wouldn't have to pick cherries on his birthday, but who can blame him. Happy Birthday Ben.

Happy Birthday Ben! I can't believe you're so old. It seems just yesterday you were doing "mid semester pump" parties. Good to see you guys. Thanks for all the entertaining posts! (Mike says "Hi" too.)

Nathan said...

Happy bday Mr. Benny. I got you a fabulous gift. I found this mail box in my neighbors front yard that he must have been giving away because it was right on the curb and the flag was up indicating it was free for the taking. Anyway it is yours upon your return to the USA.
Mr. Crane
PS I'm headed back to the old UN to let them know what a good job you are doing in Australia.

Happy (Late) birthday Ben! I am sure you made the day so fun and special for him. I love the last pic of him and Laine. She has your beautiful smile, Nat!

Okay...so I have been a bit behind on this bloggin thing...and I can't remember now if I already commented on this post. Forgive me... :)

PS...okay, I was just scrolling down to publish the comment and I got caught off guard by a comment by "anonymous" and I was actually going to go back and rewrite some more stuff about Ben...then I found out it was from Ben. He is still such a card!
