Happy Birthday to my hubby!

Today is Joel's birthday. I don't really think I'm supposed to say how old he turned today, but I will give you a hint: In 2 months I will be turning the same number. If you still don't know, did you know that sometimes people's ages are listed in their Blogger profiles?

Anyway, it's Joel's birthday. So, I thought I'd wish him a happy one.

It's been a hard year for us (possibly more for me than for him), but he is always by my side (even if I never see him) and is the best husband I could have ever asked for. He is kind, talented, super cute, smart, funny (freaking hilarious, actually), loving, and most importantly, a great cook. He's also popular. He just decided to join Facebook a few weeks ago and got something like 10 friend requests an hour for the first day or so. What can I say? He's a charmer.

And, since his birthday always falls so close to Father's Day (sometimes it's even on Father's Day), I want to take this moment to tell him what a great Dad he is. The girls love him so much and you've never seen three happier children than when he walks through the door. He is a super fun dad and he loves to play with them, even if that means he has to be a princess or dress a Barbie. Or, in the case of this picture, keep Sophia from climbing up a ten foot slide.

Happy Birthday honey! I love you!


  1. I've known Joel for almost 34 years and I have to say, I agree with everything Lara says about him. I've always admired Lara for her honesty. Happy Birthday, Joel!

  2. Joel doesn't look so happy in that first picture....

    And of course he had 10 friend requests on facebook, that's where the cool kids play, we were only waiting for him to come! :)

    By the way, you both look really good. :)

  3. Babies... ya'll are just babies. :)
    I'll be officially old this year. Well, I thought 30 was old. Who's really to say, I suppose. I feel old. But really, I'm not very much older than you. But I am older.

    Happy Birthday Joel!

  4. Joel, I like your comment about yourself. THat is so narcissistic. I love you/him so much and know that you/he are the most incredible person I know. You/he is my hero!
