Rob’s Birthday BIG #40

This was written by my FiL (Dad) and I wanted to share (hey!  that rhymed!)

This is really  hard to say
That Rob will be 40 today

It was his days playing football that was really a blast
He did a good job at blocking but he never ran fast

In the band a trumpet he blew
When he made first chair Jennifer cried boo-hoo

His grades were great and off to college he’d go
It surely cost us a lot of dough

When graduation came we knew it was worth it all
When is standing there proud and tall

After a few years to Key West he would go
He wanted to get away from the cold and the snow

When he came back home pizza was his game
It didn’t last long we think Pizza Hut was to blame

We were surprised to hear that he was choosing  the Army as his career
His Mom and Dad both shed a tear

The he met Amber and everything is great
We believe that it was truly fate

We’re proud of our son and the accomplishments he’s had
We give you our love from both Mom and Dad



I know that it’s been a while since I’ve written!  There’s not been a whole lot going on with me or Rob lately.

Codiak is growing like a weed.  He’s about 45 pounds and just turned 4 months old!  The scale at the vet’s office wasn’t working today when we got puppy shots, but the doctor agreed with our assessment of 45 pound (or 20 Kg)!  The vet tech who was working today said that she had a lab and that she knew ours was going to be a big boy!

Rob celebrated his “over the hill” birthday on the 15th.  We didn’t do too much, but I made him a cake and a special birthday dinner.

I started re-watched the Friend’s episodes and right now I’m on the last one.  It makes me sad.  I know that I will always have my “friends” anytime I want, but it is sad to see it end.  I promised my friend Diana that she could borrow my DVDs so she could enjoy it.  I say that I’m a bad sharer, but I’m really not, I play very well with others! 😉

Rob is working late tonight.  I had to chase the dogs from the neighbors yard.  Codiak has taught Casey the intricate art of jumping and crawling through fences.  Grrr!  Definitely going to need a privacy fence when we get back to the states.

Anyway, Rob finally got home, so now I gotta go!  Thanks for reading and have a great day!  🙂
