(Note: This blog entry is really meant just for Stacey, but the rest of you can read along, and sing along, if you like...)


We're so sorry that we can't be there to help you celebrate, but we thought maybe a little blog would help make us seem a little closer to home on this important day. And we also thought we'd try to experiment with a new form of media on the blog, in your honor... VIDEO!

Avery was super-excited to hear that it was your birthday, though her birthday-song-skills may be a little out of practice. We love you and miss you, and hope you have a really fun day that makes you feel really special, like you deserve to!!! (By the way, we also hope that our package o' presents arrives. According to the USPS, it should have gotten there yesterday or today.) Have a great birthday!!!

Love, Jeff and Steph and Avery

    is this proper etiquette leaving a post that was meant specifically for one person?

    well, anyhow, i wish i could just pick little avery up right out of that video and give her a big ol' hug! i'll be showing the boys the video in the morning!

    Happy Birthday Stacey!
