I can't believe you are 30! I have just spent the last half hour looking through all our pictures from the last 6 years and each picture just made me think of all the happiness that you bring to my life. I can't list 30 great things about you because I will inevitably forget all the best things and the 30 things just wouldn't cover it. So, instead, I tried to pick some pictures that are "just so Allen" and you wouldn't be mad at me for. (This was difficult... and they are in no apparent order.) I truly wish you Happiness all year and the best Birthday ever! I love you luva!

Yay, first to comment! Happy Birthday, Allen! And I love the post, Patrice...

You really are the super-everything that Patrice mentioned, but she forgot super brother!

Happy Birthday! I can't believe you're 30 (and that Noah will be in 6 weeks!)

Oh, Happy Birthday -- my little Boy! What a beautiful post from your adoring wife -- nice -- Patrice. It definitely makes a mother happy to see such a fine man as her son, and even more so to think his wife loves him! We hope your birthday was wonderful! Love you so much!

What a sweet post. Allen, you really are all of those things and more. I am sorry you turned 30, that was a tough one for me. Maybe you don't care, Rick didn't.

Patrice, thanks for the dinner and party on Saturday. It was AMAZING. I'll be looking forward to more tres leches cupcakes the next time you have a few days to make them!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Allen, Esquire. Cute post, Patrice. I love the Dwight picture. That is the greatest.

What a great post! Allen is truly all of those things and so many more! I hope you had a very wonderful birthday! It sounds like Patrice went above and beyond to throw an amazing party! Love all the pictures and the many "faces" of Allen!

Hey, happy birthday man! I remember you had a springish birthday. The big 3-0. Awesome. What a nice tribute Patrice!

Happy Birthday to my most "favorite" cousin ever.... of the male gender anyway. Hope you had a great day. Evan is growing so fast and is getting so big! To answer your question Patrice, no, you don't know Ashley and I don't think that you have probably ever met her. They moved my Senior year of HS so you wouldn't have ever seen her. Hope you guys are enjoying ALL your snow!!! What a fun update.

What a great tribute... I can't believe you're 30... Why does that sound so old??? Happy Birthday!

This post is pretty old now. Not as old as Allen, but I think it is still time for new post, guys.
