Tonight we celebrated a very special event...
my oldest Grandlove's 5th Birthday!!!
This is Cole Hayden. Those of you who have followed
my blog for a while may remember when he came to
live with us a few years ago while his Mommy and
Daddy were both deployed to Iraq.
Can you believe how he has grown?
About a year ago, I made the decision to give up
blogging temporarily, as I felt it was taking away
from my family, job and well....my life in general.
I am back to blogging, but have found that I need
to blog on my own schedule. I would love to join
in some of the many bloggy parties - but unfortunately,
I found they were just too time consuming.
So....I wanted to share with you some pics which
are worth a thousand words...they represent "the why"
I exist...they represent my life!
The following pictures were taken on Oct 29th, 2010 -
the day my other Grandlove, Devin Blake, turned One.

My precious, little family!

Isn't this beautiful?

Oh..oh...is that a balloon???
At the end of the shoot, my "loving" son thought
it would be hilarious
(hardee-har-har) to "feed" me some cake...
.... like mother like son.
I think I gained five pounds from this incident. :)
So, now you see why I took such a long hiatus....
because there is no way I could ever forgive myself
if I felt I had missed out on one single moment of this.
I'm sure you all understand.
I wish each of you a safe, happy, healthy and properous
New Year and 2011. I look forward to spending more
time with you, as my life allows....and being parts of
YOUR lives, too.
All My Best....Barb
