A Toast: To Rick

…continued, Rick’s birthday party

IMG_8370
I wanted to give the first toast to Rick on his birthday–I toasted the man of my dreams, my prince charming, and the father of my children. Actually, I have no idea what I said. It’s all a blur.

Caleb and Josh read some ‘toasts’ and notes that people sent to Rick to be shared at his party. I think this was the little poem Bill Wertz wrote. You can see it on facebook. All the rhyming words rhyme with Rick and end in Big Stick. You can probably fill in the blanks.

Josh read the note from my Dad and actually pantomimed it out. Very funny.

Still holding it together, the boys look nervous…

Nope, nope, there it is…and the winner is…
