Happy 40th Birthday Christian!


On this day 40 YEARS ago, Christian was born!


I thought we could take a look back at some of his first years of life.  It seemed like he was a pretty happy & healthy (his mama wrote Buddha under some of the photos!) baby.  Even 40 years later, he still is always so happy & easy going.  It is one of his best qualities.  If there is a problem, he comes up with a solution to fix it or one his favorite sayings that he tells me frequently, “that’s just the way it is. What should we do?”

Getting a little older.


Soon his brother came along.


He started school.

When he was younger, Christian liked to play with Legos & trains, build and play on the computer, go to the sea and spend hours building things in the sand.  I am not sure his hobbies have changed in the last 40 years!  He is consistent & knows what he likes.

I am going to share this last picture, that makes me laugh so hard!  The two very different expressions on these brothers’ faces.  Christian reminds me a bit of Ralphie from the movie, A Christmas Story.  Maybe just because they both had blonde hair & glasses.


This is a long holiday weekend here in Germany, so we are celebrating with Christian’s brother, sister-in-law & niece, which will be lots of fun.  We are so happy to be celebrating Christian & cheers to another 40+ years!!
