It’s funny (and a little concerning) how fast the year goes by. We all get caught up with work, school, sports and forget about taking time to live in the moment and look forward to those special occasions. Alas…December is … Continue reading
…Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him (NLT)
Seven years ago, Tory and I were blessed with our first child. Jackson came into this world with a smile on his face and love in his heart…and is still the same 7 years later. Happy 7th birthday bro! Mommy, … Continue reading →

Though our trips to Oregon are limited, we do try to make it to my stomping grounds for Easter. My mom loves to have the family over during this holiday and her large yard makes it ideal for the Easter Bunny to hide all the eggs.

down the trail i’m coming
with a basket full of fun.
and everybody’s doing the Easter

The cousins spent time opening up gifts from the Easter Bunny while my brother and I helped the little fur ball out by hiding more eggs outside. It was a beautiful day in Eugene!
After a long and eventful weekend, we decided to take the kids to see their great grammy. It has been a few years since we have all seen her and needless to say, she was quite surprised…especially since there was no warning we would be tromping in.
‘Til next Easter, hop hop hop.
