Happy Snowday Birthday

Today is my husband's birthday, that special once-a-year-day!
The man who hates winter celebrated the day being snowed in.
And he was happy about it!
We left the old Chevy plugged in all day as there was no place we had to be
but with one another.

We did venture out for a walk in the winter wonderland.
The snow is so dry and fluffy that we can blow on it to make it puff away.

And I love the sound of the crunch with each step.

The day was made special by phone calls from those who care and Facebook
messages of good wishes. Then Josh and Kathleen came over for dinner and a few card games.
And a round of singing "Happy birthday", of course.
The wish that baby Abigail would arrive on his birthday didn't happen
but we all forgive her, anyway.
She knows her arrival time but is still keeping it a secret.
I am so happy that he is here in Fairbanks with me for this special day.
Maybe next year we'll be back in Texas or somewhere else. Who knows?
We've been together for his birthdays for 40 years. That's what matters.
Happy birthday, Jack!
