A Birthday at Golden Pines!

I returned a couple of days ago from a trip to Kentucky taking care of issues related to the passing of my brother in February, and the upcoming sale of the home owned by my parents. The work to sort through so many years of living in one house, deciding what should be kept, given away or thrown away is time consuming and exhausting both physically and emotionally. There is still a lot of work left to be done. Another trip is planned in a few weeks.    

With all that aside, I am back just in time to take photos and celebrate our "birthday boy,"  Todd.
I cannot believe he's four years old today!  
Where has the time gone?  
~Todd, one week old!~
At four years old, Todd has really grown up. There are times I feel that calm maturity and dignity from him that only comes from age and experience.  But don't get me wrong.  Todd is still the "number one show" to watch in our house and the one that can bring the most laughter and cause the most mischief!  I don't think that's going to change anytime soon!
Even with a boy named Georgie who is supposed to arrive on Saturday.
Don't adjust your screen. Georgie IS indeed a black lab.  

 Happy, Happy 4th Birthday to Golden Pines most special Scottie!

  11. Todd, happy b'day. Now you have to cut them out-Scots only get to around 12 and you have to slow time down but things don't work that way.
