Happy Birthday Lina!

I know I often complain about how quickly the month has flown by, or even that if I’m not careful, before I know it the year will be half over.

Actually the year is half over. Dang it.

I apparently live in a state of perpetual chrono-shock, so it should come as no surprise to you when I say I can’t believe it, but MY BABY GIRL IS 26 YEARS OLD TODAY!!!!

I’m not sure how that’s possible since I myself was 26 only a short time ago.

But in fact, it is true. This amazing creature has grown from adorable baby, to rodeo cowgirl…

to, er…twins…?

to high society dame

to someone who spends a lot of time counseling people on couches…

and (you can actually see her in action here)…

I can honestly say she was the easiest child I ever raised. She never talked back once!

Now that she has moved to Chicago and has found full time work counseling the clergy…

and stunt modeling for album covers…

her Dad and I are confident she will continue to grow and AMAZE US EVERY SINGLE DAY!

We love you Lina-Lou!!! Happy Birthday!!! And Many Moooore!
