The BEST Birthday present ever!

With all this baby announcement stuff, and the fact that I don't like birthdays, I have let my birthday slip past without saying anything.  However, Brett gave me something for my birthday that I just have to tell everybody about.  Brett knows that my favorite thing in the whole world is to spend time together as a family.  Well with soccer and other school responsibilities the morning of my birthday he said that he wouldn't be able to be home until around 9:30 that night.  I was rather bummed, but I knew that responsibilities needed to come first.  Well, at 1:00 I went to answer the door and standing there with a gift in has hands was Brett.  I was confused and asked what he was doing at home in the middle of the day, and he said that he decided to use some personal time and take a half day off of work.  He called in a sub, told his student teacher she was in charge, and he came home to spend the day with me until he had to go to soccer, but by that time I had to go to mutual.  We didn't do anything much--we rented a movie from Red Box for a dollar, and played the Wii together, and then our neighbor said she would watch Mark so we could go out to dinner.  Like I said we didn't do much but it was the opportunity to be together that made it so special.  I really have a great husband!!!
