Happy Birthday Daddy!

Yesterday was Drew's birthday. He had to go to work! Blah! After work we spent the evening at Momma Zara's house with John and April. Grace picked out a HUGE batman balloon for Daddy... and she picked out his cake. She asked the people behind the counter to put Abc's on the cake. (Happy Birthday Daddy)

Super cute videos!

Grace found Wall E in her stocking.

Here she is just playing with her new toys. Not saying anything, just looking cute.

Grace sees her horse for the first time!!

Amy and Lilia came to visit!

Here is an old shot of all the Clem Clayton kids. They came to visit us when we lived in Missouri- and we were all SO SAD that they were leaving...

Jody ( who is my age ) Amy ( one year older than me) ME, Jer, and Jeff (same age as Jer)
Amy was my childhood bestfriend and beyond. Her Dad and my Dad were police partners together in Denver. Her sister, Jody, Amy, and I were the three musketeers. Her brother Jeff, and my brother, Jer were the same age and buddies. We all had such a great time together. Amy and I have such a history together... and she means so much to me. Thank you for coming to visit us in Alabaaaamy. Love you much!
