This is the best way to start this blog, isn't it?
Kayli pulled herself up in her crib and she's even crawling on all fours now. It won't be long before she's walking. She is 8 months old and the smartest baby that has ever lived (I think that's the Grandma in me escaping).
What a great day we had remembering Will's birthday last Sunday.

We celebrated Will's birthday with a great big party. We had lots of family and friends come from all over. Then we probably told every stupid story we could on Will. No, I take that back. There wouldn't be enough time in a year to do that. Will was always pulling tricks on people and making everyone laugh. No, I take that back (again). He didn't laugh a lot during his games, did he? That was his serious side. But mainly he made us laugh.

So back to what I was saying... We were having fun and that was what we all wanted to be doing to honor Will's birthday. We know that there were many, many people that wanted to be here and couldn't, so I just wanted you all to know that we felt like you were here in spirit. We hope you celebrated in your own way. Many balloons were let off on Friday and are floating somewhere up there with happy thoughts with them.
We got Will's bench placed just in time for his birthday celebration. Everybody got to go to the cemetery who wanted to and see it. Some of you won't be able to get here, so I thought I would put a picture of the front of it on here to share with you. It ended up looking better than I thought. On the top of the bench it reads "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." Good, huh!
It's a very peaceful place.

We know Will's birthday is this Friday. It will be tough to get through, but we will-- because God is holding on tight to us all. We know that many of you will be having a rough time. I wish we could take the pain away. We thank you for all you prayers and thoughts for this special day. We were soooooo blessed to have a "Will" (one of a kind) born to us. I still say a prayer every night thanking God for sharing Will with us for as long as He did.
What more could we have ever wanted?
If you want to celebrate Will's birthday in your own way, please do so with a smile or a hearty laugh. You can even let a balloon go in his honor, play with a baby, or go play a game of basketball.
He's watching, you know, and that's what he would want, smiles, lots of smiles. Have faith, we will be seeing him someday.
Here is a poem I found......
I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.
All I have is memories and a picture in a frame.
Your memory is a keepsake, with which I'll never part.
God has you in his keeping, I have you in my heart.
God bless all the parents out there.
It's a tough job, but it is so worth it.

What a fabulous day to remember the love our Father in Heaven has for us all (and I do mean everyone). We started it out by going to Sunrise Service and had a great breakfast with the people that came to the service.
We are so blessed that God sent His Son for our sins.
What an awesome God we have.

Now here is a cute picture of Kayli. She's now an official "crawler".
She does the army crawl so far, but soon she will be up on hands and knees. Boy Grandpa Tom is going to have his hands full now.
Here's Kayli getting ready to go on an Easter egg hunt. It was so cold even though the sun was shining.

This is the cutest picture of all. This was taken after Sunrise Service. She's all tuckered out. How sweet is that??

I hope everyone had a terrific Easter and we will be getting more pictures up here. By the way Tom and I had a good time on Spring Break. We spent a few days in Mesquite and a couple days in Vegas. Vegas probably won't be my favorite place to spend time, but it was a blast to watch all the strange (and I do mean strange) people there. We love our new car, it made the trip so easy.

God Bless you all.
