34 Years Ago Today...

Once upon a time in 1976, a baby boy named Chad was born...


He was a really cute little boy...


Who grew into...



A young man...



Sometimes Chad was a little naughty, like when he would get off the rides at Disneyland...



But he was well-behaved most of the time. Then Chad served a 2-year mission in New Zealand where he taught himself to speak another language (Tongan) in just 6 months...



A few years later he met a girl. They liked each other a lot and decided to get married...



So he built her a house...


Just in time for their son Archer to arrive. A few years later they welcomed a daughter named Della. Chad was a very good dad...


And his children loved him very much...


They love him because he is fun...

And because he is funny...



One day Chad started his own business and his family decided to move to Texas so they would have room to grow...

Even though he didn't build their new house, he has done lots of projects to make it feel like home...


Happy Birthday Chad!

Thanks for all you do for us. We love you so much.

Love,

Caitlin, Archer, and Della Belle

Happy Birthday! Do you guys watch White Collar? There is a character on the show named Mozzie, who does, in fact, slightly resemble Chad. Whenever he's on the screen one of my kids say, "There's Bro. Calder." In reality, Chad is way cooler than Mozzie (who is pretty cool himself), but I've been dying to call Chad Mozzie. Would that be okay? Maybe it would be thing. Maybe it would catch on.
