1. He reads books to me.
2. He helps me put my blankie on.
3. He gives me treats.
4. He gives me presents.
5. He plays games with me.
6. He pushes me on the swings, but not too high.
7. He loves me.
8. He tells the truth.
9. He gives great hugs. (They really are the best hugs.)
10.He makes me laugh.

Now it's my turn, I love Cody because...

14. He works hard.
15. He loves helping people.
16. He has a big heart.
17. He is patient with me.
18. He is my best friend.
19. He knows me inside and out and for some reason he still loves me.
20. He listens to me.
21. He always supports me in anything I do.
22. He is a wonderful father.
23. He takes care of me and Riley.
24. He is very considerate and thoughtful.
25. He brings out the best in me.
26. He is selfless.
27. He is sensitive to others’ feelings. (That’s why he’s such a good counselor.)
28. He puts up with all of my crap and never complains.

30. He loves me unconditionally.

We hope you have a wonderful birthday! We love you very much!

Homemade Fun!!

One of my friends had this posted on her blog and I finally decided to bite the bullet and post it on mine too. I personally just did it to get a free prize! I have no clue what I'll make, I guess it will depend on the person that gets the gift from me.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you. This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2. What I create will be just for you.
3. It'll be done this year. That gives me a good eleven months to get it done!
4. You have no clue what it's going to be. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
5. I reserve the right to do something extremely strange (but don't expect my gift to be too strange because I am not good at coming up with strange things:).

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog. The first 5 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did win a FAB-U-LOUS homemade gift by me! *Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it!*
