Thirty-four years ago, this sweet beautiful little girl was born to me.                                                                              
                                     She has brought so much joy and happiness to my life.

                                                           Born in Boulder, Colorado

                                                Raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico


                                                        We survived the teenage years!!!

                                                       High School Graduation

                                           Desert Academy - Santa Fe, New Mexico

College Days - Hawaii Pacific University - with roommate Lindsay.  That was a tough start.  We flew
to Hawaii at the end of August 2001.  I went to all the parent orientations, set her up in her dorm room, enjoyed the sand and sun and then flew back to Santa Fe.  Eight days later, 9/11 happened.  I had a panicked child on an island in the middle of the Pacific and no way to get to her or get her off the island.  As you may remember, all flights were canceled for days after that tragedy.  We made it through, along with countless other parents and kids. She would end up graduating from Hawaii Pacific University and staying in Hawaii for nearly ten years - with many visits from Mom & Papa.

                  She met her husband Jason in Hawaii.  A musician and IT whiz  - we love him!

                            Together - they gave us the ultimate gift - our grandson.

                                                           The Payoff!!

So Happy Birthday my sweet, loving daughter!!!   Today she is spending her birthday helping to host a baby shower for a friend.
