My 3 favorite Birthday Presents

1. My Wife Cindy
Look at this woman. She had pneumonia all week, but she still managed to make it out of the house and join the boys and I in Santa Cruz. You know how after you've been with a person for a while you just naturally drift apart? I DON'T!!! I've never understood how that happens to people. Even after almost 12 years of marriage, Cindy still fascinates me. It may be because I'm kinda slow. It may be because she's all kinds of awesome. Probably it's a little of both. Either way, I thank God for this beautiful woman. She challenges me, she calls me on my #@&$, she supports me, and laughs at my jokes. And as long as we've been together, whenever I see her, the Holy Spirit still puts these words in my heart..."Hubba hubba!"

Which leads me to...
2. "The Adventures of SuperDad" by Ethan Garcia

This is the first volume of SuperDad's adventures written and drawn by Ethan J. Garcia. It is with great pride that I tell you: I am SuperDad! That's right, I have my very own comic book! In this riveting tale of courage and heroism, SuperDad saves a family from a burning house. The actions of SuperDad reflect almost exactly what I would do in saving people from a fire. Right down to the cape. I am so jazzed to see Ethan explore his gift of storytelling. I hope to see more stories come out of this little guy in the near future.

3. My Rechargeable Battery Station

A wise philosopher once said "Parents just don't understand". I think the Fresh Prince might be right. I'm not sure what it was about her baby turning 39 that screamed "I must get him something so he can finally recharge his batteries!", but clearly now is the time. Sure, it lack the zing of a Blu-Ray player, but it beats a bottle of vitamins. Mostly, the ranking of this gift places so high because of the lady it came from. She raised me as best she could, in a loving and caring environment, and sacrificed a whole lot of dough so I could get edumacated. As I grow older, I find myself more and more confused about some of her decisions. Especially when it comes to gift giving. "Wow... so this Barbecue stove heats meals with newspaper?" or "Really, a 'Baby Can Read' gift set? Um... you know he's 5, right?" But at the end of the day, she loves me and my family. And who doesn't need to recharge their batteries every now and again?
