He's 50 Today!

Today is my hubby's 50th birthday.  Yes, he's 50 with a 2 year old!  :)  (We've decided that fact is going to keep us young)!  

Jason was born in 1960.  I thought it would be fun to see how things were in 1960, so I did a little research!  Here's what I found out:

- The average cost of a new house was $12,700.00

- The average income was $5,315.00

- A gallon of gas cost 25 cents.

- The average cost of a new car was $2,600.00.

- A loaf of bread cost 20 cents.

- The average monthly rent was $98.00.

A few things have changed, haven't they? 

I'm so very thankful that 50 years ago, a baby boy entered the world that God knew would one day be my husband.  He's a Godly husband and dad and we love him dearly!  I'm glad he's my man. 

Happy birthday, Jason!  :)

When we 3 children were young, our parents were used to tell us:
-"your birthday is the MOST IMPORTANT DAY in the whole universe, because it is the day of YOUR birth and you are our treasure".
Happy happy Birthday!!!
