First Birthday

Dear Grace:
They say it's your birthday...

Exactly one year ago you were born at 8:01am weighing in at 8.8 lbs. This has been an amazing year all because of your bright little soul.

You are very special, but today you are extra special. You will eat off a fancy red plate, be showered with presents and a bunch of grown adults will gather around you in funny hats and sing happy birthday to you.

You light up my life sweet thing and I simply cannot get enough of you. Enjoy your day and know that there will be many more just like this.

Love you to the moon and back.



First Christmas

Was a excellent first Christmas with family & friends! Christmas Eve Bill & D came up for some holiday cheer and Christmas Day Josh, Grace & I spent the day opening gifts, going for a walk and having some holiday cheer with friends.
Grace got a lot of great gifts, but she was most excited about her new pink crocs that she played with on her hands all day and night.


A Day On The Hill With My Dad

Ok so this web site is suppose to be all about our little package Grace and I am sure she will make it into this post. This past weekend I got to go skiing with my dad. We had some strong winds, it was snowing like a winter wounder land and we got first tracks on Spooke run in the north country of Crystal Mountain. The photo above sums up the day, all smiles!!! We took the photo on top of the NEW North chair. It was a special day to have with my dad and by far the best Christmas gift he gave me this year!

Grace someday you will ski and have special days when it is just you and your dad as well!


Almost A First Step

The First Christmas Tree

I will always this Christmas as the year we had to decorate the tree half way to keep little Grace from taking down the tree. The first photo really shows where the decorations stop. Who would of thought how much joy would come from bringing a Christmas tree home. Grace and I decorated the tree together last night with Jonny Matthes blasting. Grace took a special liking to the blue balls (go figure) that were on the tree. She would take them off the branches and then pretend to put them back. Good times. Can't wait for Christmas Day!


Twas the Night Before...

Today was a big day, brought Grace her first Christmas book! Twas the night before Christmas... Can't wait to read it to her tonight!

Almost one year! Can you believe it? Ask me if I am ready for child #2? Not yet, just enjoying what I already got!
