A Poem for Grandpa

For those who do not know, my wonderful grandpa has passed away. I wrote the following about him:

To me, grandpa means many things
A man greater than mighty kings
Humble, kind, honest, and true
Helpful, funny, and witty too.
Always there to love and share
Even when life seems hard to bear.
A teacher with great knowledge and skill,
Guiding others, their minds to fill.
A man that works his whole life through
And shows us what we should do.
Who lives his life by what he believes
And sets an example that he will leave ...

He loved his children and his wife
And gave for them throughout his life.
Respectful, devoted, and faithful,
For his beloved, he was always grateful.
Even when she did not know,
His devotion for her did grow.
And when his dear darling did depart
She took a large portion of his heart.
Finally, they will be together,
And keep their love into forever.

To all of us, he gave his love
And will continue from above.

Robbie is 2!

Our baby is becoming a little boy! He is growing up so fast! We had a small birthday party at home for him on his birthday. Then, we visited family and had a party with his cousin who is about 10 days older than Robbie. It was fun to watch him get excited about the "birday perties" and presents. He loves Star Wars, so he got some Star Wars toys. He also got many other toys:) He is such a cute kid!

Fourth of July

We celebrated the Fourth of July in many ways!
Robbie had fun playing outside. We took him to the city festivities, which he also enjoyed. He got to ride a train, pet a Police dog, and watch a helicopter land.

Stadium of Fire-We got tickets and had our wonderful neighbor watched Robbie (good thing, he would not have made it!). My mom, mother-in-law, and brother-in-law came with us. My mom took some great pictures. It was awesome to celebrate with so many people!

Robbie in abril

Robbie did many things this month. Here are a few:
He learned the word, "egg" as he decorated and hunted eggs. He liked hunting eggs so much that Mommy and Daddy put more around the house for a few days after.

He also went to his great-grandpa Lorin's funeral and got to see a lot of family. He said, "Papa" when he saw him in the casket and when he saw pictures of "papa." He got to ride on his saddle. I think he remembered visiting papa before.

Robbie discovered his shadow this month.

He loved going outside when the weather was nice, reading books, dancing, singing, and talking. We love our crazy and beautiful little boy!

Robbie Having Fun

Robbie had fun playing with his grandma's glasses, as you can see!

Farewell to March

Another month has come and gone. Here are a few highlights:
The nice weather makes it easier for Robbie to be outside! He loves it!

Jason celebrated his 30th birthday! Happy Birthday!

We had friends over for cake:)

Robbie made a card for Daddy.

A New Look

So, I FINALLY cut my hair! For those of you who don't know, about 8 months ago, I was diagnosed with a disease called Alopecia Areata. It is an auto-immune disease in which your body attacks hair follicles. Well, you may not see in these pictures, but I have several bald spots on my head. It is not a curable disease, but can be treated with steroid injections, which I have been receiving. I have had quite a bit of regrowth, but still lose hair. Well, I am going to try short hair for awhile-hopefully my hair will seem thicker and I can actually wear my hair down. Here are the results:

Happy Anniversary!

February 18, 2006 Our Wedding Day...

It's amazing how much can happen in four years! I was talking to Jason on our date last night about what happens in four years--high school, getting a bachelor's degree, etc. AND there is still so much more life to live!
I am thankful for the fun we've had! I love you, Jason!

Happy Birthday to Me!

For my 29th birthday, my mom drove the 3.5 hours to see me and took us out to dinner!What a great mom!

Jason hid my presents throughout the house, and I had to search. Great presents too! One of them was a gift certificate for a massage!:)

It's hard to believe that I am only a year away from 30, but life is good! Birthdays just aren't the same as you get older...

Happy New Year!

Hope you have had a wonderful holiday season!
We spent time with family. All but one of my siblngs got together at my mom's house for Christmas. It was wonderful to see them all again!
Robbie had fun opening some presents and then playing. He walks, climbs, and explores all over the place! He likes to talk and tell you all about things (even thought you can't tell what he is saying).
