5 Years Old, Already!?!?!


You are a true blessing for our family...

Your silly personality and awnry grin always keeps me on me toes...

You are so much fun and I wouldn't have it any other way...

We love you buddy and we wish you a lifetime full of happiness...

and I look forward to the many more memories we will create!

I hope being 5 is your best year yet!


To My Son

by: Amy R. Campbell

Oh how the years go by,

Oh how time can certainly fly.

From once just a thought in far away dreams,

now into my arms and in my eyes gleam

the presence of you.

Your laughter and smiles

which go on for miles,

warms my heart and soul.

You're growing up so fast,

as I wish each moment with you to last forever.

My little boy will someday be a man

and right by your side I will forever stand.

I will pick up the pieces when you fall,

I will hold your hand and help you stand tall.

And when the day comes when you are on your own,

never feel that you are alone.

No matter how near or far apart

I am always right there in your heart.

Always remember whatever you go through

that no matter what, I will always love you.

Everyone Loves a Parade!

We had a splendid Christmas parade in our small town this year.  I must say it was one of the best I've seen since living here.  This was Nick's first year participating, not watching.  He rode with his boy scout troop.  He was nervous at first, but admitted enjoying the ride!  Adam had a great time catching candy, dancing to the bands, and enjoying the fun figures that stopped and waved.

 Mimi (my Mom) and Adam waving at Santa!

 Adam and a fellow friend enjoying Pooh

 Nick riding in the parade.  He's right above the "P" in Pack.

We loved that the boy scout float was pulled by Thomas!  Such a great day.

Happy Holidays!!!

8 is Great!

Because 8 years ago today, I became a Mom.  God blessed me with a 5 lb, 3 oz miracle.
I love you Nicholas Andrew, and have a very Happy Birthday!!

For My Son...
Author: Amanda Rodriguez

When I learned that you were coming I was sure that you would be,
the most wonderful and precious child that I would ever see.
I was fearful, but excited, I was anxious, but prepared,
to hold you in my arms and show you just how much I cared.
And when the day finally came, my heart was filled with joy,
to see that you were made for me, my perfect little boy.
Now as the years are passing, you surprise me everyday,
by showing me that I can love you in so many different ways.

Special Times

Sometimes, you just need to slow down and appreciate life... fishin' with your Pap and Great-Grandpap

 ...or take a slow train ride around an old-time park with your brother

 Sometimes your giggle so hard when Pap pushes you on a tire swing you forget you're dizzy...

 and then you can't wait to eat the fabulous lunch prepared by your Mimi and Great-Nana!

 And then it's time to play, play, play...

And enjoy the day!!!!!!!
