The Birthday Boy!

Okay so the pictures aren't in order but if you look at them from bottom to top
you will get the idea! Enjoy. The Cake has been eaten... eaten and eaten... he loves CAKE!
That's My Boy!
Maybe just a little Taste...
The cake... A Circus theme cake I love my new Giant Cupcake Pan for William Sonoma. My sister-in-law got it for me for my birthday. Thanks Carrie!

What a HAM!

I know that it has been a couple weeks since the big day but I am just getting to the uploading of Nolie's birthday pictures. I hope you are having a great weekend!

Have a great day! dana

Our Beloved Spayds.

may you rest in peace spayds... Spayds loved to run free at Grandma and Grandpa's.
Blake and Spayds were the best of buddies.
Dear God,
(Please give Blake peace and help him understand.)
To Our Beloved Spayds...
I don't even know where to begin, Spayds was our dog for the past 11 years. She suddenly past away yesterday and our family is terribly saddened. Doug and I got Spayds as a little baby pup when we were in college. She has been with us through so much. Between, college, moving around, getting married, building a new house, having babies and seeing her go from our first child to being put on the back burner. Sad is what we are. I just can't believe that she is not here with us today, and won't be here for the days to come... Blake doesn't really understand... He knows that Spayds has died and that we had a little ceremony when we put her in the ground... but I don't think he gets that she won't be here with us anymore.
Spayds was such a great dog. She was so easy to train when she was just a pup. She was loyal and obedient, I never worried about her with the boys and besides getting in the trash a couple times a month she was so good. She sat by our feet and followed us around the house where ever we went. She was loved and she will be missed terribly. It is going to take our family awhile to adjust to not having her around but I know that we will be okay. She was my security blanket and I just feel like there is a large part of our family missing. Sad is what we are... but okay is what we are going to be. GOD bless you Spayds, you are truly missed.

We are ready for Spring!

Well it has been a long drawn out winter at our place and I have to say. Bring on the
"Spring Time."
We are looking forward to sunshine, parks, walks outside, biking and more. With Nolan just turning one this last week I am looking forward to this spring and summer being an active one. Blake is loving the outdoors right now. Nolan will (hopefully) be walking soon and I know it will be an adventure to say the least. I hope all of you are getting a peak at the sun and enjoying your day.
I wish you all warm Spring thoughts to all of you and your families.
God Bless and have a great day!

I know... things have been crazy around here.

I can't believe that my BABY...
Nolan is going to be ONE.
Where has the time gone. It seems like just yesterday I was holding him in my arms for the very first time and NOW... He is going to be the big One.
To my little boy...
You are growing, learning, laughing and doing things that I thought would take forever for you to figure out. God has blessed us with you and I couldn't ask for a better natured more loving and sweet boy. God has big plans for you son and I pray that you will grow, learn and laugh all the days of your life. We love you very much baby Nolan.
Happy Birthday! Love, Mom
Hope you have a great day!
