Happy Birthday Ernie!

I wanted to do a quick post to wish a Happy Birthday to my Step dad Ernie. Happy Birthday!

Ernie is pretty funny. He is from WV so he uses words like "commode" rather than bathroom and eats coleslaw on top of his chili dogs. Mom knew him from years ago and they were reunited when we moved back to Ohio after our Dad passed away. He was brave enough to tackle dating and marrying a woman with 4 daughters under the age of 13. I remember him spending a lot of time in the garage when we were teenagers, but I'm certain it had nothing to do with the 4 of us. We were angels no matter what anyone tells you.

***You may want to step away as my blog may be struck by lightning after that last sentence.***

Back to Ernie. He isn't afraid to cut loose and be the class clown at any moment. He's about as genuine as they come and that's why we all love him.

I can't tell you what I am giving him for his birthday since I haven't given it to him yet. I can tell you that it is NOT a Rolex Submariner. Not that I wouldn't like to get him one, but its a little out of the budget right now.

I eat cole slaw on my chili dogs too now that I live down in WV. I didn't like the stuff before, now I I enjoy it. Happy birthday Ernie, I don't think I could have made it through with 4 girls, I don't know what I am going to do with 2...
