There's a birthday here today!!

Happy, happy Birthday to Garrett!!!

Garrett has the BESTest smile in the family. When he was a baby.......strangers used to mention his smile as they walked by. These photos don't show the smile as well as they could....but the above photo gives you a hint. he is swimming in Robynn's pool, in Lancaster, in September of '08.

Visiting Willa in the Sierras, last July.

Swing dancing with Maddelyn at Willa's in July, '08.

On a Disneyland ride in September '08.

Swimming in a nasty, smelly reservoir in Oregon, Summer '08.

Camping, Summer '08.

On the dock, at a reservoir in the Sierras, with Willa, July '08.

Garrett & his papa, admiring Crater Lake National Park, August '08.

Today he is 12 years old!!
He does not know this........but his father is going to the big city south of us, to pick up a surprise for him.
Garrett has been saving his money and trying to figure out ways to earn he could purchase a Lego Star Wars set. He has been focused on this idea for about 6 months.......he will be VERY surprised!
Happy day, dear boy!!!
Love, your family

Birthday Greetings Garrett,
I checked out your blog site to see if there was a photo diary of your
past year there...guess you don't get that until your 16! Anyway, here's
hoping you have a special and blessed day. Hopefully we can get together
for a "movie night" or ice cream or something before you turn 13!!!
Love, Cindy and Jacob
