Gabe, son #1, their friend Dustin and Caleb son #2, Tailgating at an LSU Football game this Fall.
Today is "Gabe's" birthday.
Whose proper name was, and still is in fact "Gabriel" when we named him oh so many years ago now it seems. He was born in a "Leap year" and just missed it. We were glad of that really.
We haven't seen him "face to face" since before Christmas at which point he moved to Connecticut to be near the "girlfriend" whose parents relocated to there in August.
We do talk to him several times a week though....which is good.
He said they received another "8 inches of snow" during the night and it was "beautiful."
To which I responded "ugh....it's nearly 80 degrees and beautiful here."
It snowed right after Gabriel was born...in fact....they told me to "stay" at the hospital because of the snow storm.....so I did and was there nearly 5 days.
Which made me cry when I left with that tiny new baby because I felt like I was leaving "home." HA!
I mean they fed me and took care of me....it was great. HA!
Then the real work began. And that "work" hasn't stopped yet.
Gabe and Caleb doing the "Chicken Dance."
Today is also my Grandfather's birthday....and my Cousin LynnAnn's birthday. So it's a busy day in my family.
Happy Birthday Gabriel.....and we miss you and love you and wish you many more Happy Birthdays.
