Happy Birthday Dave

My boy turns 45 today. Geez, where do the years go?? When did this little guy turn into the man he has become today? That smile is still there--well yes, he does have a few more teeth now than he did in this picture but that smile is still there.
He was a great big brother, even though he had his sister believing she was adopted for years!

He never really brought home any strays but fortunately he found us our Japanese daughter, Juri. He made friends with her at school, found she was having problems with her host family, and asked if we could take her in. We did and she became a part of our family thanks to Dave.

Dave also brought Ann into our family. She just happens to have a birthday this week too. Happy Birthday Ann. And the two of them gave us 2 of our 5 beautiful grandkids.

Dave inherited my love of sports and is a Cleveland Indians, Browns and Cavs fan even when it is hard to love some of the Cleveland teams! He has also helped coach Erin's softball team for several years now. And he can often be found sitting in the ski lodge while Sam is out on the hills snowboarding. (I guess he just hasn't gotten into snowboarding!)

I still can't believe that it has been 45 years ago today that you arrived. Happy Birthday Dave. Thank you for being the best son a mother can have. Love you lots!!
