Happy Birthday Michelle!

So I don't post very often (I usually leave it to the pro), but I thought that since she did a post for me, she deserved to have me do one for her. So here is to you Meesh! Happy Birthday! Congratulations on making it out of your teenage years. I feel that, because I am so much older, I am required to share with you all of my wisdom. I will do that at another time and place so as not to bore anyone else that might read this. It has been an honor to be the one you call your husband. Thanks for everything you do for Beck, Viv, and me. You are an awesome mother and wife. It is a miracle that you can put up with us. I would like to share a poem I wrote for you:

by Tucker Botkin
with John Lennon and Paul McCartney

Michelle, ma belle.
These are words that go together well,
My Michelle.

Michelle, ma belle.
Sont des mots qui vont tres bien ensemble,
Tres bien ensemble.

I love you, I love you, I love you.
That's all I want to say.
Until I find a way
I will say the only words I know that
You'll understand.

I need to, I need to, I need to.
I need to make you see,
Oh, what you mean to me.
Until I do I'm hoping you will
Know what I mean.

I want you, I want you, I want you.
I think you know by now
I'll get to you somehow.
Until I do I'm telling you so
You'll understand.

I will say the only words I know that
You'll understand, my Michelle.

And here is my poem put to music and pictures:

I wanted to include pictures from ALL of her first 20 years of life, but didn't come up with this idea until 3 oclock this morning so was stuck with pictures that I had on my laptop. So there are plenty of Beck! ha. Go easy on me...this is my first video publishing experience. :)
