The BIG 18!

Today is a big day over here!!!  Ross is 18!   I am certainly not sure where the years have gone!!  This photo is Ross at age 3-- where he was always making us laugh and had the ability to win people with his personality!   I love this shot!
Flash forward to today!  Here he is with his sissy -- and I am so proud of both of them. He has grown up to be an awesome 18 year old!  We are blessed to see him making good choices and  becoming an adult!  Happy Birthday Ross- WE all love you!!!

Skies full of Color!!!

This past weekend was a whirlwind with company in town for Balloon Fiesta!  We have witnessed this event for 24 years, now, sometimes from home, sometimes from the field, etc.  We kind of take it for granted.  But when company comes, it is all fresh and new again watching them enjoy it for the first time!!  There are not alot of words to describe the experience!!  Such a beauty in the SKY!  We had Perfect weather -- and enjoyed both the Mass Assension and Balloon Glow.  WE had a ball.  We had a whirlwind tour of Albuquerque shopping, and eating and also a wonderful day in Santa Fe by train.   MY cousin, Jodi - who was my flower girl in my wedding 28 years ago, and my highschool friend, Kristi, who was also in the wedding, flew in Thursday to start off a wonderful weekend of catching up and lots to do!!  Here are some of my favorite photos!
