Happy Birthday!

Today is my husband's birthday and he always knows what to expect from his children.  For the last 28 years, each of the kids has written their daddy a birthday letter and picture, highlighting the events of the previous year.  The littlest ones just draw a picture.  When they are old enough to talk, they tell me what they want to say and I write it for them until they can write for themselves.  We then gather all the letters and pictures together and present it to Dad on his birthday.

These simple little packets are a treasure!  They're like time capsules of our family.  It's so fun to see how the kids grew from little children to adults.  This is one tradition I'm glad we started so long ago and hope my kids continue it...
