Happy birthday Chris!!

It is Chris' birthday today - Happy Birthday Chris!!! It does not seem like 31 years ago that Chris was born! I remember the day very well - I was watching wrestling on TV (I have no idea why!) when I went into labor. I called the doctor, who happened to be in Blackfoot, at the fair! He told me to keep him informed on how far apart my labor pains were, and when they were about 5 minutes apart, I was to call him and he would come home. Well, I went all day and most of the evening before they were 5 minutes apart - it was about 11:30 when we finally got ready to go to the hospital. In those days, you had to pay for a whole day, even if it was 11:55 when you got checked in! So, Bob decided we would wait until we absolutely had to leave!! His delivery was horrible! I won't go into details, but I never wanted another baby after I had him!! But I'm sure glad that we got him here. He has been a such a joy in my life! Chris is truly one of the funniest people I know - he can make me laugh when no one else can. That is how he always got out of trouble! He is charming when he wants to be, and very handsome. Chris is a hard worker and a devoted son, brother and uncle. We love you Chris!!!

Tell Chris happy birthday for me. I remember that day too, but I was so dumb I didn't know what was going on. I was just excited to get another nephew. We love you guys.
