32 Years and Counting!

Today is Patrick's birthday! We won't mention exact numbers- but let's just say that a long, LOOOONG time ago, a little baby was born in the city of Salt Lake City, UT and his name was Patrick Thomas Darby. Some time has passed since then and now he is significantly taller, has a wife, three children, and a cat! Besides being in possession of those lofty achievements, Patrick has developed a lot of fantastic talents that are not generally known. Patrick has the amazing ability to look in the cupboard and the fridge and create wonderful meals for his family! It truly is a talent that amazes me every time because I am a recipe-dependent sort of person! Patrick also has a fantastic sense of humor and comic timing that make him an excellent story-teller! Oh and he has some great voices when he reads books to the children, too! Ok, there are many wonderful things about Patrick and we are so happy to have him as a father and husband!
So, Happy Birthday Paddy!
It's his party and he'll cry if he wants too. . . .
Please don't mention the exact time elapsed since his birth because Patrick is a little sensitive about his really REALLY REEEEEAAAAAALLLY old age.

His birthday cake: Double Chocolate-Praline Fudge Cake. The picture just doesn't do it justice! It was GOOD. mmmm
A good man deserves a good cake! Happy birthday husband!

Happy Birthday!

I love the pictures off to the side. That program is SO fun. (Can't remember the name?) We played with that a few years ago, with Bob and Amy's family, and we were peeing our pants. We even got my dad to do it -- that was awesome! :-)

I am always checking your blog -- even if I don't comment -- I am a lame at keeping up with comments! But I am always commenting in my head! :-)

Love ya!
