Our first Christmas gift ~

As a young married couple, expecting our first baby, we were so very excited!!
Our oldest son Brent was due Dec. 5th....1982.
Well, several weeks into December, I thought I would NEVER deliver our first child!!!
We went to a few different malls and
walked and walked to help start things but nothing happened.
Finally, Dec. 19th I went into labor and
we had our first baby just after midnight on Dec. 20th, 1982.

Brent was the first of many...yes, we have five sons,
all so very precious in their own way.
But the neat thing?
Brent has been a wonderful older brother to each and every one of the boys.
Nurturing and caring for them just as we do...
which in turn has helped in his role as a daddy to Clara and Murray as well!
He loves his precious wife Emily and always watches over us all....
Happy Birthday sweet Brent!!!!
We all love you so much ~

Dear Dawn, Happy Birthday to your dear son Brent. There is something so special about having a child so close to Christmas. It's no surprise he's so wonderful, just like his Mama! Merry Christmas Dawn. God bless you and your beautiful family. Love, Penny

Happy birthday with your eldest handsome son, dearest Dawn.
I hope you all had a beautiful day, celebrating him.
You, precious friend, have a great deal of the honour in raising him-and the other wonderful sons of yours- to become such caring and wonderful persons.
Much love, and hugs.

Happy Birthday to Brent! 31 years, hey, how did that happen! He is a handsome guy, and very lucky to have such a good Mom, who, as I remember, is about to have a Birthday too. Enjoy!
Merry Christmas Miz Dawn!

Happy birthday to your son. He had excellent examples to follow growing up, so it comes as no surprise to me what a fine man he grew into.
Many blessings and Merry Christmas lovely friend.

Happy Birthday Brent.
One of our 5 sons, Brian, was also born on Dec.20. He was born in 1964, had 4 sons himself, one of which was named Brent, ironically. We lost Brian on Feb 26,2011 to heart disease at the young age of 46.
This will be our second Christmas without him...miss him so.
Hug your kids as often as you can!

Dear Dawn

Happy birthday to your son. I have one born 3 weeks early on Christmas Eve. Babies come when they are ready not when we are.

You have a wonderful family and I am thinking of how many grandchildren you may have when the rest of the boys marry.
