Autumn eight years ago

Her birthday was yesterday.  Seems like yesterday she was this little, like her little brother Gavin.  Wow I’ve changed in eight years too.  She turned eight years old yesterday. We celebrated her birthday party while I was home with pizza and bowling and lots of screaming little girls.   It was fun watching her interact with them all.  She’s something else.   She’ll always be our first baby.
Happy Birthday Autumn
It is your birthday and on this day, I want you to know that you are a very special niece who has touched and warmed all of our lives, including mine. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you. I hope you celebrated the beauty of your funfilled spirit, embraced the dreams of your heart, acknowledged the great joy you bring to the world, and most of all realize just how much your life means to those around you.I love you
Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday Autumn



I'm a day early, but I want to wish a Happy Birthday to my beautiful sweet niece Autumn.   Her birthday party was this weekend, the day after her brother Gavin was born.  She was such a little sweetie.  I took lots more pictures but my albumn is not working and I'm having to post images once at a time.

Gavin Ryder

Once again I’m am blessed with a healthy little nephew.  Little Gavin Ryder was born on Maundy Thursday at 11:55 p.m.   Gavin is my brother's first son.   The family name will be carried on.  In the midst of me trying to get packed and ready to move, events that alter the present sometimes occur.   I’m so excited.   Another baby, about to change all of our lives I know.  Coming so close to Easter.    Celebrating birth around the anniversary that Our Lord took death upon Himself on that cruel cross of pain for our sins.  So celebrating Eternal life as well.   Lord get me home safe, help my car make it so I can be with my family.   I pray for little Gavin as he comes into this world to be filled with love from all of his family, very much wanted and loved. Friday I held him and took so many pictures, Lance, Mom, Amy, and I, then Saturday I got to spent a few hours with just he and Amy, holding him, looking at him.   Praying for him, loving him.   Lance is so proud I can see it in his eyes, and Amy is such a good mama.   She is so good with him.   She seems to cherish each moment.   More pictures from the weekend coming later, I'm still sleepy.   I got my kitchen cleaned and packed but that's about it.   Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.   I'd also like to say thanks to a special lady over at
