Tribute to an AMAZING Man!

My Grandpa Ron and Grandma Connie were married 17 and a half years ago and on October 9th, 2009 my wonderful grandma lost her husband to cancer. Although grandpa Ron was my step-grandpa, he never treated me like I was anything less than his true grand-daughter. I was blessed to be able to attend his funeral where there were over 300 people in attendance to celebrate his life. I was amazed to see how many people's lives were touched by my grandfather. As I have had time to ponder the life of my grandpa there are so many things that I wish I would have said to him and so many things that I know he could have taught me. I am sad that his life was cut short but happy that he is no longer in pain. My grandpa Ron always made me feel beautiful and loved and that is something that I will truly miss. I am sad that my son will never know what an amazing man that he was but I will tell him stories of the great man that he was. The funeral was beautiful and exactly what he would have wanted. I will miss him so much but I will see him again. Love you grandpa!

One Year Anniversary

I cant believe it but on October 4th Mike and I celebrated our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY! This past year has been the best/hardest year of my life and I would not trade it for anything in the world. A few milstones this year:
-Logan was born
-Mike lost his job
-Mike got into college
-We almost bought 2 houses
-Mikes parents finished their house
-We got a new niece(Mak)
-We spent WAY tooo much money
-We moved a million times

Its been a great year. I love my husband and cant wait to spend 50 more years with him and our children.

first flight

Well Logan took his first flight this past weekend. Him and I went to California to see my Grandpa Ron. My Grandpa was diagnosed with lung cancer at the beginning of September and after more tests they discovered that the cancer had spread to his entire body and there was nothing that could be done to help him. So he was discharged from the hospital and went to stay at my Aunt Kelli's house. So my Grandma thought it would be a good idea for us to come down and see him and basically say goodbye. The trip was bitter sweet because it was awesome to have my Grandpa meet Logan and hold him is was very sad to have to say goodbye to someone that is still alive. Mike was not able to come because he had to work but I made sure that my Grandpa knew that Mike loved him and wished he could be there. Logan did really good on both of the flights but we both missed his daddy by the end of the trip. All in all his first trip was a success and we are looking forward to many more trips to California.
