Happy Birthday Greg! It's been a good 6 years together. I've come to realize that I need this man more than I ever thought. He is an amazing provider, husband, father, and priesthood holder.

I know that he will do anything he has to in order to take care of his family. He is definitely blessed when it comes to work. He has a job that he loves for the most part and works great hours so we get lots of family time together, which we all cherish. He is very handy to have around, from the shelves in the toy room, to helping me paint, to planting a garden, and lets not forget the nasty backyard that he was willing to take on by himself in the AZ heat nonetheless. I have many more projects for him, starting tomorrow, I'll give him the day off!

Axton is in love with him and nothing better ever happen to Greg because Axton would truly be destroyed. The boy counts down the minutes until Greg is home and often tells me is "mad" at Dad because he's not home enough. He will refuse to go to sleep on the nights that Greg is gone until Greg is home from scouts or whatever else has taken him away. Those two share a very special bond.

While Greg may not understand or like some of my quirks he puts up with them with very little complaint. He has a very simple outlook on problems which I admire and wish I had. Life is always so sunny and positive to him. I rarely, if ever, hear him complain about life or trials, I really should take a lesson from him. He never judges me when he comes home from work and I'm a mess, the house is a mess, and I don't want to cook dinner. He simply takes Axton outside to play to give me a break, as long as the reason behind these isn't because I've been reading a book all day!

Even though our courtship was pretty fast I know that it was meant to be. We fit together so well. For us the last 6 years has been pretty easy, and I look forward to the next 6. Thank you Greg for everything you do for me and our child"ren". You make life so much easier for me than I ever thought it would be. I have been blessed to have you in my life. I hope this year is everything you want it to be. I love you.
