Happy Birthday Hayden!!

“Making the decision to have a child is momentous.
It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” -Elizabeth Stone

And here are some pictures of the girl that has stolen my heart.
We celebrated Hayden's birthday yesterday and it is just going by so fast.
We have gone from this:


to this:

She keeps getting older and there's nothing I can do about it but enjoy the ride. 


Now and then


A birthday poem from her big brother:
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
My life is in your hands 
so please don't go poo. 



She was extremely happy with her new bed.

Have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by and I will talk to you soon. 
And since I will not talk to you again until after turkey day, have a wonderful Thanksgiving.




I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream. 


Never confuse a single defeat with a final defeat. - F. Scott Fitzgerald

A happy birthday to a beautiful young woman.
My daughter set up each of her children's bedrooms as you did Hayden's. I think it is brilliant.

Happy Birthday to Hayden! She is a cutie. And as the saying goes, the days are long but the years are short . . . it doesn't seem that long since our kids were the ages of your two, but they're now 33 and 36 . . . Enjoy every moment, Mr & Mrs S.

That gif is extremely disturbing! Happy Thanksgiving and I hope your turkey and gravy lie quietly on your plate - lol

Belated birthday greetings to Hayden. Time sure is flying. It only seems a short while since you announced her birth. Your children are a credit to you and your lovely wife. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
