Heather - 29 Years....

...give or take.

So in honor of my special lady on her special day a special blog all about Heather.

Heather was born in Houston on July 10, 19 somethin. Here she is about Jonah's age, cute runs in the family

Fast forward to the 90's, here's Heather's rock star senior picture. This one will probably cost me an night on the couch, but I like it.

Fast forward again to '00, Heather decides to sign up for the gruelling fall season of church league flag football and meets up with the monster from the Midwest, the galloping goofball, me.

Luckily for me she stuck with me longer than she did with football! This was a truly awesome day. Seems like just yesterday, but if that's the case then last night was a wild one!
Wedding Goodbye

Fast forward to now, I did manage to sneak the camera away from Heather on the 4th and ended up with a good picture of her - which is only surprising due to my photography skills, I am learning by proxy though

Here's what we know about Heather:

After 7.5 years of being married to me I love her more than the day we got married, and amazingly she still keeps me around.
She's an awesome mother to our 3 crazy boys, if you want to know more about this then read the next 1,000 posts or so
She's a crazy good photographer, again read on
She's going through bicycle withdrawal although photography keeps her mostly distracted, once it cools off that'll change
She hates the heat in Texas (who doesn't!) even though she's lived here 90+% of her life
She loves Jeep rides through the forest...oh wait that's me but she'd come along if she can bring her camera and bicycle
She has more creativity than I can keep up with
She's a great friend, not just to me either
She's has truly a generous spirit


Here's a little video we put together - Happy Birthday Heather, we love you video

Happy Birthday, honey!!! Sorry I am a day late. You and Harry's birthdays are so easy to remember since you are both 10's but it seems like I work all the time and can barely remember what day of the week it is let alone birthdays!! Looks like you had a fantastic day. We love you all so much. (As I type this your Godson just yacked down my shirt...what a nice touch! LOL!! Way to go Harry with the terrific photo of Heather. I love the whole Jonah gets rid of Mom's hat look. The birthday video was priceless. Have a happy day and God bless. Love from Kansas.

Major points, Harry! We have been on vacation and have not checked in for a week and we get back and wow! So many great pictures, Heather. And Harry I love the senior picture of Heather. She is beautiful in it as in the wedding pic. The disclaimer at the bottom is priceless. Pure Harry! I love how much in love you guys are. Trust me, for couples like us, it just keeps getting better and believe it or not, Joel and I have been married almost twice as long. Boy, I wish you all lived closer!!!

Ahh, Harry. You just made all us wives jealous. I think every woman wishes her husband would actually say these things out loud! Happy belated birthday, Heather. So sorry to hear about your brother. We will keep you and your family in our prayers. We so enjoyed seeing you all on your trip up here. Wish we were closer. The boys had so much fun playing together. Trey enjoyed having kids his age around.

Harry, great job. Heather, I'm a little late with your birthday greeting but looks like Harry and the boys took good care of you.
