Eight Rascally Years With Sawyer

It's you I like
It's not the things you wear,
It's not the way you do your hair,
But it's you I like.

The way you are right now,
The way down deep inside you,
Not the things that hide you
Not your toys -- they're just beside you.

But it's you I like.
Every part of you --
Your skin, your eyes, your feelings
Whether old or new.
I hope that you'll remember
Even when you're feeling blue
That it's you I like, it's you,
It's you.  It's you I like.

-- Mr. Fred Rogers --














Happy 8th Birthday, SawDog.
Our lives wouldn't be the same without you.

Amb,
Happy eighth, SawDog. Can't keep a good SawDog down, right? Just be careful.

We love you,

As always,
Jim-Dad

Happy Birthday to Sawyer! Hope you guys had a great time celebrating him! (He's such a cutie!!! We can arrange a marriage if you'd like!)

Happy Birthday to Sawyer! What precious pictures. It goes by so very fast.

He is so stinkin' cute. And I'm tellin' you. I have the perfect match for him. Ava will be 8 in June and can match him freckle for freckle (and ornery for ornery).

And is it just me, or is that one line in Mr. Rogers' song just a HOOT? "Not your toys; they're just beside you." That has always cracked me up for some reason.

Love that red-headed rascal!

Also, I am sad because I cannot see all the pictures. And no, it's not the google reader.
