the birthday boy...


turns "38"...

my handsome hubby told his kids that all he wanted for his birthday was for them to do a good deed or an act of service to someone else & then tell him what they did...

so Todd and I decided to send out an email to family and friends asking them instead of gifts in Cory's honor do an act of service or a kind deed to someone and then text, email, facebook, call him, etc... this didn't need to be something huge.

it was such an awesome birthday experience for him!

he received so many texts and emails of many acts of service,  it was PERFECT!

here are just a few...

~gave money to a homeless man
~took back a neighbors garbage cans
~went to the cannery
~2 people did work in the temple
~didn't fight with a dumb driver in the wal mart parking lot {haha}
~babysat so parents could go out
~gave money to a family for christmas
~gave money to poor little Filipino kids
~let someone take the parking space they wanted to park in
~open the door for elderly people
 on and on and on...

Thanks to you all for thinking of others on his special day!  He enjoyed reading all of these texts and emails while skiing with Boston all afternoon.

our kids loved thinking of anything they could do for him all day, they were so cute to him.  One thing about Cory, he is the most giving person.  I couldn't have asked for a better father & best friend.  he has totally made my life Perfect...

I love you baby...

That was the cutest birthday idea ever! It must have been so fun to read all of the things that people did for others. So cool!
