Happy Birthday, Bubba Boy!

It's here again. February 23rd. The day I have to admit that my baby boy continues to get older. I didn't even hang the birthday banner this year, and yet he still gets to turn 8! 

Look at that smile!  One of the many things about him that always brightens my days. So full of love and life,  you can't help but smile back and say, "Thank you, Lord, for this beautiful blessing!"

 Learning to ski was a big deal this year. Take this boy to the top and off he goes, flying down and enjoying the ride. Sweet boy, may you always enjoy this ride called life, not letting the little bumps and falls along the way slow you down.

 Sweet times with best friends always make the day brighter!

I know I should have put the camera down and helped, but it was truly hilarious!

So many ways that you show love - full of hugs, laughter, kisses and so much more. 
I am so thankful that you are our blessing! 
Happy 8th Birthday!

Last night was Aiden's turn to help Mommy cook. We made a special cake for Chris' co-workers.

And Aiden had the bonus of the beaters all to himself!  The. Best. Part.
(He may or may not have dipped that back into the batter... but I'll never tell!)

Snow Day *Finally*

 Aiden liked his first snow a lot better this year than last.

 The hill is ready...

  On your mark, get set....

 Chris had a great idea for letting Aiden sled, too.

 Needless to say, he loved it!

Every snow wanderer needs his cocoa to warm up afterward.

Hear that???

That would be the sound of a lone wind as tumble weeds (brought some up from West Texas for nostalgia purposes) roll through the absent space of our family blog.

Sorry 'bout that *sheepish grin*.

Here's a cutie pie pic to hold you over a minute.
