Happy Birthday

Happy 16th 
birthday to this amazing guy!

Now if he were only home so I could wrap my arms around him. I hope he is having a great time celebrating with his friends at school.

I can't believe he is the sweet 16!

He is a true blessing and I am so proud of the young man he has become. I can't wait to see all that is in store for him, because I know it is going to be great!

A Day at the Slopes

We spent this sunny, seasonably warm February day at the slopes.
The weather was perfect for some skiing and riding. I was not able to ski so I hung out in the lodge. I love the atmosphere of ski lodge. Everyone is so friendly.

Griffin was very nervous at first but after a quick two hour ski lesson, he was ready to go. He was the last one off the slopes and he wanted to keep going. He is quite the ski bunny.

He and Dad spent lots of time heading up the lifts. Nolan joined them every once in awhile, until he got bored and needed to head to the top of the mountain.

Trevor and Nolan hit the top of the mountain and were hardly seen. They had a great time and Trevor even convinced Nolan to do a few black diamonds.

Rob has not skied in years and repeatedly said how much fun skiing is.

A great time was had by all.
And then this guy drove us home!

Now if we could just find time to get to the slopes more frequently.

Griffin is 9

Griffin is 9 years old.
I just can't even believe it is possible. He is and will always be my sweet Pumpkin Butter.

Griffin is the happiest boy I know. It is very rare for him to not be happy and full of life. He has a smile that lights up a room. His giggle is infectious. 
He is for the most part a very calm boy. He is happy watching his ipad and being chill. He is quiet most of the time, but he can be loud when he wants to be.
He is smart, oh so smart. He is a math whiz and loves to practice math problems all the time whether it be us coming up with problems for him or him doing math on the computer. He does not love reading, hopefully that will come.

He loves his brothers and family. He wants to go to school with his brother in Limestone. He loves animals. He wants a Pug.

At 9, Griffin loves Pokemon, nerf guns, youtube videos, Mario games, basketball and soccer. He is a great eater and would eat Orange Chicken every meal of the day if you let him.

He is a complete joy, my old soul and I am so blessed to be his mommy.
Griffin, happy 9th birthday. I love you to the moon and back!
