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.
