Happy 21st Birthday to Joe

This is Joe.  His official name is Joseph, but somewhere along the line it was shortened to Joe.  He is our 8th child and keeps us laughing or ticked, sometimes at the same time.  You can't stay mad at him, though, because he'll just make you laugh.  He thinks most everything is quite funny and enjoys a good prank.  Joe has been gifted in music and expresses it through playing the keyboard and bass guitar.  He also has a great singing voice and leads the Christian band he is in.  Funny memories of him as a toddler was that he loved to play in the toilet and we would often find him sitting, dangling his feet in the water, also at one point, he threw all the toothbrushes in it and flushed!!  As a bigger boy he would amaze his older brothers with his ability to lift weights along with them and became quite the pool shark winning many a game. He also became quite good at riding a unicycle choosing it instead of a regular bike.   
It's hard to believe he's 21, today. Happy Birthday, Joe!  God has great things in store for you.  I love you. Mom
