Happy Birthday, Noah! I will never forget when God gave us another special baby...and we thought it was neat that you were born on Kimberly's birthday. Since we didn't find out what you were, but thought that you were another girl...We were surprised and happy that God gave us a baby boy. It has been fun raising both boys and girls and seeing the neat differences in you both. =)

We took these pics of Noah being a "Typical Colombian man." The older men here wear this type of poncho (either wear it to keep them warm, or throw it over their shoulder in case they need it later.) They also wear this type of hat, and carry a machete on their side like he has (Noah has a fake one =). We just threw the horse in the pic for the fun of it.
~Grandpa and Grandma Dickinson sent Noah some money for his birthday. Recently he saw this little toy "motorcycle" and wanted to buy it. I asked him if he wanted to buy it with his birthday money...and he replied that he did. I said, "Let's call and ask Daddy if he thinks it is a good idea." So, I dialed Phillip on my cell phone and handed the phone to Noah. When Phillip answered Noah said in his cute little voice...something like this..."Daddy, this is Noah, and I want to buy this little motorcycle that is right behind me with my birthday money." I then told Noah to give me the phone so I could explain more to Phillip. When I got the phone Phillip said to me, "And how could a person say no to that?!" =) Noah came home with the motorcycle. =)
We love you, Noah, and we hope that you have a very special day!
