Happy Birthday Sweet Kylie!!!

Happy Birthday to Kylie. It is hard to believe that you are 6 years old today. We remember the day you came into the world. Our first grandchild, and first great grandchild. What a whirlwind day that was. I was at a Bunco tournament with my team and Papa was at a meeting. Not thinking you would come early. But someone forgot to tell you. We got in the car and headed for Scottsdale. We almost made it to Yuma , when Scott called and said you were here. This little bundle of joy, that would fill us with so much love.

We hope that you have a wonderful birthday. We love you more than you will ever know. And we will see you soon.

Happy Birthday Scottie

Happy Birthday Scottie. Here is your tribute to being a wonderful little boy who grew up into a fantastic man. We are so proud of you and what you have become. Sometime it was a struggle with your independence. You were and still are a very determined your man.

You loved your big wheel. Everybody better stay out of your way, or you would run them down. You still have the need to be fast and the best. Look at that hat.

Mr. Model man. When I was working at J. C. Penny's you boys were asked to model the clothes. You took it very serious and did a great job. I had to buy that Cookie Monster. You loved it.

Then Kim came into your life. We were so happy to welcome her to into our family.

Oh, Culinary school at the Scottsdale Culinary Institute. We were so excited that you had found one of the loves in your life. To turn something ordinary into extra delicious. Wow have you impressed us with your talent.

And then these treasures, your babies. Oh what wonderful sweeties they are. We have been blessed with you and are so happy that we get to be a part of your life. Happy Birthday Scott.

April 1st. Happy Birthday Kim

Happy Birthday Kim. We are so blessed to have you as a daughter in law, even though we don't think of the in law stuff. You are our daughter too. We remember the day we met you at the park in Cedar. We told Scott that you were the girl for him, and not to let you get away.
The day you said "I Do" to Scott was a wonderful day. We finally got the daughter that we wanted.

Then after 10 years of marriage we have Kylie and Cooper with another baby due in May. What a wonderful edition you have made to this family of ours. We want to wish you a VERY happy birthday and give you lots of love.

"Happy Birthday Geoff"

Wow it just doesn't seem possible to have a 34 year old. But here we are. Here are just a few pictures of your life. I know it doesn't include any sports, but oh well. It's your BIRTHDAY!!
This photo is in my wallet. We were living on Quince in San Diego, it's Halloween and you are a ghost. You didn't want anything to cover your face, but then who would.
Christmas in Spring Valley With your brothers.

Your 11th birthday party. You were losing the baby look, and becoming the handsome man that you are today.
Lake Montezuma, Az. a couple of summers ago. We had so much fun with the kids.

Christmas in Utah with a visit from the kids,

Here is the man today celebrating 34 years of life. You are a constant joy to us and we love every moment we spend with you. We are so proud of what you have become, and thankful that we are along for the ride on this wonderful trip. We love you very much.

Goin fishin the Redneck way.

Ashley was also going fishing. She was being a goofy girl, so hope she was lucky to catch some fishy's too.

Utah Spring Break pt2

Papa and his favorite 5 year old, soon to be six. Kylie is almost done with kindergarten and doing quite well. At a teacher conference, her teacher informed Kim, that Kylie is reading at a 4th grade level and math at a 2nd grade level.

Cooper did not feel well for the whole time we were there. Some sort of a bug. He loves to fall asleep in his bouncy chair. Papa and I took them to the Wildlife Aquarium in Sandy when we were not even in the place for 5 minutes when he threw up all over me and himself. Quite a lovely pair we were. So Papa took us home to shower and change and Cooper sleep.

After his nap he did fell a little better, but not much so we decided to just take it easy. He liked that.

Daddy and his girl. What fun they have together, Kylie is an active girl who loves to build puzzles and play Uno. She's quite good, so you better watch out when you play with her.

After dinner we decided to head outside. Cooper wanted to be pushed around in his trike. Which Papa did gladly.

Scott and Kim sitting on the porch. Kim had worked a 12 just the night before is is always tired the next day. She looks pretty good for being 7 months pregnant and working the night before.

These are always my favorite, Family pictures. They make a wonderful family with a lot of love to their children, and anyone around them.

And the Kylie found out that her cousin had his training wheels taken off his bike and said it was time to take hers off too. So, daddy did and we all took turns holding the back of the seat while she tried to balance, peddle, and keep her helmet on. So much pressure. But her last words to me were."Practice makes perfect, Nana". That's my girl.
