Pete's Sweet 16! (you'll see why in a minute)


Happy Birthday, Pete! I think you're officially over the hill now at a whopping 31. But don't worry, you have a young spring chicken for a wife (for another 4 months and 1 day, anyway). Thanks for being a great husband, for letting me sleep on your side of the bed with you so that I stay warm, for picking Texas Roadhouse to eat at tonight for your birthday (LOVE their Ranch dressing!), for watching really lame shows like "Bravestar" with the boys, and for always making me laugh.
