This is the most amazing picture I think I have ever taken, the actual moment of birth. What a thrill it was to watch and be part of thanks Kari for letting us share the miracle!

Highlights from birthdays past


Nothing better than a sugar high!

I like to eat my watermelons from the outside in


The Fairy Princess stops in her tracks as the sinister stare of the ogre falls upon her Who you calling a Fairy??

Frosting makeup its the new thing.

Paige having fun with Payton

Receiving First Pumpkin from Dad I love how she looks at him

These thoughts came about the day of Dad's funeral while the family gathered around his grave to visit. I noticed Paige had gone off by herself standing under a big tree, she acted like she was talking to someone. I figured she had become frightened because she could not see her Mom, Kyle had started to notice her odd behavior also, when I approached her she did not want anything to do with me and pushed me away, she wanted to be left alone so I did, I continued to watch her has she had a conversation.

Good thing I have a strong stomach, I almost lost my dinner with that first picture! I can't believe how chubby she looked as a fresh newborn!
We love you paigey! Happy 3rd Birthday, and we are excited to spend it with you!

I still am in shock over her turning three. I can't stop crying when I look at her and how big she has become.

Happy Birthday to Paige! Hope you have a grand day! Whitey would you give her my birthday wish if I don't see her? Thanks!

She is one big baby....my hat is off to her mommy. No wonder it is a very happy birthday. And thanks for including the poem, and the picture of Uncle Clyde with Paige and the pumpkin. You have a fabulous family.
