My Uncle Paul died 19 years ago in a pickup accident. I will always miss him so much. One of the many things I miss about him was the way he smelled. I remember that he always used Old Spice aftershave. I love that smell. After his accident I would always buy that kind of deodorant for Jay, Old Spice Original Scent. The other day Casey went to the store to get toothpaste and deodorant. When he came home he had two kinds of deodorant, he asked me to smell them and tell him which one I liked the best. No question about it, I like the Old Spice original. He asked me who it reminded me of. I told him Uncle Paul and Dad. He smiled and said, "yep, it reminds me of Dad too." So I went up stairs and took out Jays deodorant, took off the lid and left it on the counter. Who needs and air freshener? I will just use a stick of deodorant with the lid off to always give me a scent of Jay and Uncle Paul. It might just be a little thing, but I will treasure every little thing that reminds me of them.

We've been busy with everything from baby showers ........
to baseball games.
We've had swimming lessons....
and tree planting.
Last weekend, my middle brother Tom and his oldest son, Jesse came up to see us.
We went in to the college where Jesse wants to learn to be a fireman.

You were such a cute baby.
Dad adored you.
He would go with you to swimming lessons, take you swimming at the lake
He would take you for a ride on the four wheeler every morning before I went to work. He worked the swing shift and had to see you before we left in the morning.
From the time you could pull 50 pounds on your bow,
you were Dad's favorite hunting partner.
How many other girls would go in the woods with only a bow and arrow and compass,
But he knew you weren't too far away. He could call you any time and you were there.
It wasn't long before you amazed us again with Connor and Caleb. Oh, what joy they are.
And a little later you blessed us again with Kenzi Elizabeth .They are lucky to have you for a mom. And I am lucky to be your mom.
Happy Birthday Stacy Love Mom
