It's a GREAT day!

for 2 reasons:

Grace was born 4 years ago today and blessed my life more than words can ever say. Her due date was late Jan, but God had other plans.

Happy Birthday Baby Grace!


Grace - 5 days old


Today at Red Robin. The crown is beautiful as is a gift from my good friend, Alice.


We took Grace and her friend, Maddi to Build a Bear workshop.

Happy New Year everyone!!! Looking forward to starting clean with some new goals for 2009! Ready to put 2008 to rest.

Have a great time bringing in the New Year. We are going to our good friends' Chris and Jennifer's house to celebrate!

Be safe, and have a great evening!

Happy New Year Mendy (and Dave) ;-)

Great fun @ BAB!

They do grow up fast. I can hardly believe that mine are at 6 & 3...... oi.. where does the time go. I guess it's true that the days go by slow but the years go by fast.

Happy New Year! Be safe.

HAPPY (LATE) BIRTHDAY to the cutie!!

LMAO at Robin! Man, oh man I've been thinking about it a lot lately for some weird reason :-X I don't really want another one but I do want a little newborn I can cuddle *sigh* I'm probably just getting all whacky because Keira's B-day is coming up as well. GAH!

Michelle said...

hey i didn't know you went to trhs? we're about the same age, i graduated from eastside high in '93. Vernon Huff was a really good friend of mine from TRHS, i bet you knew him. Vern and I were in chorus together, and i think Singing christmas tree too. Whadda you know?

You missed it at the tr half saturday. it was a blast. i mean besides the cold and fog. and i hate that you guys aren't going to be able to do mb this year. see you on the road! i've got to run 20 miles on saturday, so i doubt i'll be on the bike this weekend. i think i'm going to cirlce the lake at furman for a few hours.
