Happy Birthday, Josh!

No matter where you are or what you will always be my Baby Boy!

So, If I haven't embarrassed you already.....

Josh through the years.....

I wish I could put my arms around you and give you a big hug. Your family loves you, misses you and are so proud of you.

(Lawson said that the picture of you with his Mom....was when his Mommy played football)

The picture of you, laying in the baby bed, was when Courtney, Hope and Andrea, decided to play baby and dumped a whole container of baby powder on you while you were asleep. This picture was made after we got it off your face and out of your nose!

The Place Where He Belongs

John went on an elk hunting trip....... high in the mountains of the Colorado Rockies. This was his 4th trip. He did not get an elk this trip but you won't find him disappointed. I guess you could say that we, his family, know how much he loves us because..........he comes home!John calls this God's Country......and I think he does a lot of talking to him while he is on these mountains.

Look closely at this fallen Aspen tree (that was right beside where John was hunting) and you can see where a bear has been recently clawing on it!!!! I don't like to think about it..... much less for him to bring home picture proof of it!!!!

John says that nothing compares to watching the sun go down.... sitting high on a mountain!

IT'S A ..................

Courtney and Dave invited all of us to a party at their house to reveal the sex of our newest Grandchild. Everybody had a guess. I wanted it to be a girl but I thought it was a boy. My opinion was based on genetics. I had 3 children - 2 were boys. Ellen, Dave's mother, had 3 children - all 3 boys. Courtney and Dave had a boy and Dave's brother, Ken, had a boy born 6 months after Lawson. Let me say this.......I didn't care....we love what the Lord gives us.....but I did have an opinion!Boy or Girl

Dave said he hoped the neighbors didn't think that they had just had twins!

Beautiful flowers....did they know something that we didn't?

Come on everybody

Is it a boy.....or a girl!
Daddy is going to find out......
