Some pictures at Brennen's 10th. birthday party

These are a few pictures that I took at Brennen's birthday party.

We invited everyone over to the house to celebrate Brennen's 10th. birthday party on Saturday. His birthday is not until the 19th. but we wanted to do it on the weekend so it would be easier for everyone to be able to come. Dad and Pam were not able to come and neither was Brock, Amy and Parker. Ashleigh, Emily, McKinzie, and Haley were also not able to come. This is just a short video of Brennen with his cake and opening some of his presents. I still can't believe he is going to be 10 years old.

Easter 2007 (wow, that went fast) last year!

I cannot believe that Easter is almost here again. Just seems like the other day we were doing Easter in 2007. We took this picture at Mom and Eauls house in Lavaca and my little boy is not such a little boy anymore. Next week we celebrate his 10th. birthday which still blows me away thinking he has been here that long. I guess the old saying is true, the older you get, the faster time flies.

Happy dad and his boys

My dad (pictured here in the middle of all of us) just recently had a stroke. This has made me just slow down a little and start thinking about the important things in life. I used to work with him side by side everyday and looking back, I really didn't realize how lucky I was to have that with him. He taught me alot about character, values, and raised me in a christian environment which helped to mold me into the person I became. For a man that was raised by a father that wasn't very loving, I think he did a great job with all three of us.

Whats in a picture?

Its amazing to me how much just a simple picture can say. Denise had me take this picture of this one lonely palm tree on the beach looking out over the ocean at the Atlantis resort. We have been blessed to be able to go on 2 snowboarding trips this year already but this is where we want to go next. Some place with sand and the ocean, preferably some place where we walk right out the back door unto the beach and just relax and enjoy what God had created.

What a smile

Winter Jam tour concert in Tulsa, OK

We got to go with our youth group at church as sponsors for the youth to this concert. It was a great show and really really really loud. Brennen's favorite band is Skillet so I shot this short video with my camera for him. Other groups that performed at it were: Newsong, Mercy Me, Mandisa, Group 1 Crew, PureNRG, Barlow Girl.
