Fun facts to know and tell about Andy's birthday:
  • He shares a birthday week with both of his brothers. He shares the birthday month with both of his brothers, his dad, me, my sister-in-law, and a niece. This makes March busy.
  • Because he shares birthdays with both of his brothers, he never had his own birthday party until he was a grown man.
  • One of his favorite presents was a green John Deere tractor on his 3rd birthday.
  • As long as he can remember, his parents have given him $25 for his birthday. His comment on this is, "$25 was worth a lot more as a 5 year old child than it is as a 29 year old man." This year the stakes were raised to $50.
  • Andy was named after a country western song "Me and Little Andy". That's it's own post...
  • On his 29th birthday (today), he is having a concert with Andy Wilkinson and some friends at La Diosa in downtown Lubbock
I love you, sweet husband!!!

Thank you! And, just to clarify my brothers and I share a birthday week, not the same day. We are all exactly three years apart and the dates are March 24, 27, and 29.
