Birthday Boy

My sweet Gannon had his 5th birthday on Monday April 25th.. He is such a special boy and I enjoy him so much!

He really brings so much joy to our family.. I often tell him that I want him to stay little. He will give me a weird look and say "okay".

On Monday when I was giving him his bath, I told him that on that day 5 years ago he got his first bath ever.. I then asked him who gave it to him and he said "me?" I let him know that daddy was the one to give him the bath.. He then said "I like when daddy gives me baths"..

Gannon's favorite things right now are Ben10 toys and his ultimate favorite is Lego Ninjagos.. This past week when we were in California we took a day trip to LegoLand California.. It was so awesome and Gannon thought it was the best birthday ever!!!

and then???

So much to say... I haven't really felt like blogging to much over the last little bit. Life gets away from me and before I know it, it is the end of April...

So, I will try to catch up on all that has happened..

March: Was a real craptastic month! Really! My Grandpa got really sick and was in the hospital for 3 days. He was going down hill, so we brought him home to be with his family. And WOW there was alot of family here.. It was so good to have everyone here to be with him in his final days. He passed away on March 18th 2011 at 12:18 PM.. It was such a sad day for all of us, but such a wonderful day for him...

Time kind of stands still when you loose someone you love so much... I don't know how to really deal with the loss of him. He was more than my Grandpa. He was my Dad.. He taught me so much in this life and I truly miss his presence here!

April: Has been a whirl wind of crazy! El and I decided to take a vacation with all of the kids to California for spring break... BUT, those are other posts! The thing that I really wanted to mention is, on the day that we were leaving April 15th, my baby sister had the cutest little baby girl... Her name is Ellieann... SHE is so cute! I was afraid that I wasn't going to see her before we left town, so I dropped by the hospital on our way out just to see my sister.. And low and behold, the baby had just been born!!! I was so excited to see her!!! I didn't get to hold her until yesterday (easter) because we had just gotten home!!! She is lovely.. I love snuggling her! Pictures to come soon...
