HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ERIC!!!!!

Today Jan 5 was Eric's 24th birthday!  He and his cousin Emily were born 24 years ago nine hours apart.

Emily was born first at 9:00am and Eric was born at 1:10 that afternoon.  We call them the twin cousins

Emily went camping for her birthday.

Eric had to stay in Austin for work.  He called me and we had a few conversations.  This is the first year of his lige that I was not with him for his birthday :(

He said he bought a cake and candles and sang to himself....I almost started crying.

I love this kid so much.

He is doing great at his job.

I am soooo proud of him.

Happy Birthday Eric I love you!!!

Mom

AWWWWW... POOR ERIC. If I had been in Austin I would have surprised him with a cake, song and a mommy hug for you Barbara.
Today probably hurt you more than it did him not to be with him. Kids don't understand that kinda stuff until they have their own child and I'm not sure it might be a MOM thing too.
I know how you felt over a year ago John had Lauren and I wasn't allowed to see her on her birthday. It hurt me so bad and made me really mad. I think I cried most of that day.
I can't believe cousins were born on the same day and the both begin with Es it is like twins. Pretty neat.

Take care and Hugs, Chrissie

Nice looking young man, Barb.  I know you are very proud.  I know that had to hurt you, as his mom not being there.  But I am sure you will see him soon.  Hugs to you.  Please, tell him, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, for me.  Happy New Year to you and your lovely family and of course Tiny, too.  I look forward to hearing from your journal.
