Happy Birfday!

(Clears throat.)

(Warms up: "me me me me meeeeeeee")

And here we go:

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday TO you!
Happy birthday dear Michael, Mikee, Mike (ugh), etc.
Happy birthday to you!

Old man Magee decided to become a 27-year-old like his dear wife. I love the 8 months each year when we share the same age. Unfortunately, Michael prefers the other 4. Maybe that's why we work.

How about a photo montage dedicated to the birthday boy? These pictures were taken a few weeks ago when I realized we hadn't had our picture taken together since New Years. Typically I set the camera on timer (because Thumbs has yet to learn how to appropriately use her God-given phalanges) and we take a picture, I look at it, we take another, I look at it, and so on until we have a good shot. This time Michael said, "Don't look after each picture, let's just take several and then you can choose the best one at the end." I looked at him adoringly (usually he starts complaining BEFORE the first picture is taken) and told him I thought that was a great idea.

And this is what we ended up with. Thank you, Michael. It is obvious I have no clue what is going on because I'm just smiling away. How did I not know there was an English muffin a mere 2 inches from my face? Blah.

At least the guy gave me one good picture.

Be on the lookout for the Haynes' family Christmas card, starring Michael, myself, and an English muffin. Sorry Thumbs, you've been demoted.
