Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

Tristen is Five............

On Tuesday Tisten will be 5. Time has passed so quickly, he is a real little boy now, no longer my baby boy. His mother would love to see him I am sure, and one can not help but wonder if he would be a different person if she was still here.
We had a family party on Saturday for him and my son Jason, Jason is 44 now. Wow, I am getting old.
I got them each their own cakes, Jason didn't fancy Spiderman, hmmmm. So he got a carrot cake with cream cheese frosting. That was yummy.
Blew my diet but tomorrow is the start of another week. Tristen admires his cake.

Tristens parties so far have been family affairs. Not childrens parties. Maybe that will change as time goes on, or maybe he will continue to enjoy the way it blowing out the candles

Granddad Gerry bought him his very own computer. Here he is sitting with me..........another gift was face paint and you can see that reflecting in the glow of the computer screen

Tristen had spent the night with Auntie Laura so we could get everything ready without him there. He left with Grandma Laura and Reina so he could continue playing while we cleaned up. We have a great family who work well together for this little boy. We are just so happy to have him and know what a blessing it was that he was home that fateful night. I thank God all the time for that. He is growing and now enjoying the first days of school. Time sure does fly.

You put on quite a spread, can't understand why your son didn't fancy the Spiderman cake.
I'm fairly new to your blog, I gather Tristan's mother died recently?

Tristan is growing up very quickly indeed.
