Today We Celebrate

Happy 11th Birthday to Tristen!! Wow! 11 years ago I was thinking I would be pregnant FOREVER!! It was a long day, filled with anxious tears, excitement, and a couple of  reassuring leg pats from Dr. Cannata.

He came into the world bruised, scratched, and screaming. Not much has changed--he's usually still bruised and scratched and still screams a lot. ;)

Lizards are very cool in his life right now, so that's what he requested on his cake.  He's been wanting some cowboy boots, and we went to Dodge yesterday, but didn't get them. Evidently, Tristen is in a "weird" shoe stage in life, where they don't keep sizes that big in the children's section, and they don't keep sizes that small in the men's section.  So we figured out what size he needed, and came home and ordered them from the internet. saved the day!!

My parents, sister, brother, sister in law and Hope come over for Easter/Birthday lunch. It's a tradition at our house that the birthday person gets to pick a birthday meal.  So, we had grilled hamburgers and birthday cake for Easter today!

Grandpa with his grandkids!!

 I can NOT believe he's 11.
