Happy Birthday, John!

Friday, November 2, 2012

Today is John's birthday, and since he hates having photos of himself posted online almost more than I do, it's time for a John photo slideshow!!



John as a toddler (he's the youngest):

John as a kid:

John as a high school graduate:
(Your birthday present is I skipped the gangly teenage years, Sweetie.)


John on our wedding day:

John doing what he does best:
HOME WRECKIN'. 

(I kid, I kid...)


John napping with our new kittens:

John feeding the birds:
(Tuppence a bowl!)


John and my brother, Ben, in the photo that (along with the bird one) will always be proudly displayed next to my monitor:

(Best. Picture. EVER.)

John rockin' his first convention costume:


John being the best husband any girl could ask for:

Happy birthday, Sweetie! I love you!

  64. Happy Birthday John! You're one of a tiny number of strangers for whom I've prayed (back during the first tour when you were SUPER sick in the hospital) and you guys have held a special place in my heart ever since. Loved meeting you in Framingham, MA, and love your contributions to CakeWrecks. We appreciate you!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Happy Birthday, John! Today, you will not be known as The Hubby of Jen, simply John. But ONLY for today.

    Also, please do not kill Jen for posting all these pics without your knowledge. They are ALMOST all adorable. The rest, Mrowr! That's not stalker-creepy, right? That was totally a platonic 'mrowr!' of interweb friendship.

    Hope Jen's taking you out to your favorite restaurant for dinner and then, you know, doing your other favorite stuff later on. Herh herh herh.

  89. Happy Birthday John (tHoJ)! Since I can't marry you (it's against the law in the state of Maine to have more than one wife & I'm too old for you), and I can't adopt you & Jen (I'm too young, and I finally have an empty nest!), and I can't be your bestie (since you don't know me) I will just quietly stalk you and Jen from afar and wish you both all kinds of love!

    Now.. not to sound all stalker-like, but is that bird picture from Butterfly World in South Florida?! I have very similar pictures of myself from there.. I recognized the cinderblock wall and the plastic chains.. lol.. it was so familiar that the Feed the Birds reference flew straight past! lol.. I'm a bit ashamed of that as a DisGeek... Oh well..

    Happy Birthday, again!!
