So we are officially packed and have closed on our house on Crescent. Thank you to our awesome friends for all your help!! I am not going to name names, but you know who you are! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! To say that I appreciate all you did is an understatement! Thanks to the parents for entertaining the little one the past two weekends while we where packing!! We so owe all of you!

We are camping with the parents until we can close on the new house so if you need us, call our cells or email us.

We have a new home!!

We officially close on our current house on June 29th and we close on our new home on July 8th. Our new house is located in Fenton and it is gorgeous, it has an awesome backyard, 3 bedrooms and a family room upstairs and the downstairs has an open floor plan. It is about 3 times the size of our current house so to say that I am excited is an understatement. It was a foreclosure so there are a couple of things that need to be done, but nothing that we can't handle.

More pictures will be posted once we are moved in! Sorry to say there will be no 4th of July party! We are thinking of having a "Paint Party" if anyone is interested in attending, please let us know!

Like father, like son....

Happy Father's Day to the "Great Men" in my life!

I have been very blessed in life to be surrounded by "Great Men". My grandpa's where both the most loving men I have met in my life. My Grandpa D would never let us leave without kissing him goodbye, most of the time he wouldn't even talk to us unless we hugged him first. Grandpa V was the same way, he would smile as soon as we walked into the room. My dad is a mirror of his dad, he is kind, gentle and loves his kids, and adores his grandchildren. I can never remember a time that my dad has not been there when I needed him.

I have been very blessed to marry a man that has some of the same qualities, Josh is patient, strong and loving and I couldn't ask for a better husband or father for Gideon... Jim or should I say "Dandy" has outdone himself as a father and grandfather. He has gone out of his way to be involved in G's life even if he is 10 hours away.

If I had one wish for my little boy, I hope he inherits the following qualities from his grandpa's and his dad and I hope he becomes a "Great Man"

Good Friends...

Lately, I have been terrible about blogging, any spare time has been spent on the house and G's big weekend....tonight I decided to finally catch up on reading everyone's blogs and decided to steal this was too cute not. This is Tim & Chris' adorable little girl and G at his baptismal. I think I see trouble in the future.

Happy Birthday!

So things are in full swing for our little one's birthday on Saturday. What a wonderful year it has been for us. He melts my heart more everyday. He is the sweetest, smartest, most adorable little boy you have ever met.
