Today we celebrated Eric's birthday. This past weekend Eric started project number 857 around the house. OK it hasn't been quite that many, but I'm sure it feels like that to him. Eric works hard at his job and he has been working hard at this house ever since we moved in. We are all thankful for his work and for the skills he has that enable him to do so much. This current project is laying hardwood floors in the guest room upstairs. Of course we have a guest coming soon - nothing like a little pressure to get a job done! Amidst all this work, he still manages to have fun with the family and maintain a sense of humor in all the chaos (well at least most of the time!) Happy birthday to a wonderful husband and dad!
