Birthdays and Summer Stuff

It's been a long hot, but fun summer. We've fished (ALOT), camped, visited family and wonderful friends! Rebecca got engaged! The summer was good for the Nebeker's. Two special members of our family had birthdays this past weekend, Rebecca on the 28th and Grandpa Neb on the 29th. I wanted to share some pictures of them both.

Happy Birthday Leon, Grandpa, Great Grandpa!

Grandparents may be oldies...but their goodies!
We love you!

This is one of my favorite pictures, it was an wonderful day!

Leon and I enjoy photography, we took some pictures after the
Southern Utah floods a few years ago.

Great Grandpa and Hanna, ahh so cute!

The four Great-Grandchildren, Tanner, Hanna, Kylie and Kyla. It looks like they are torturing poor Grandpa but I think he actually enjoyed it. They wouldn't sit still for nothing!

Happy Birthday Becca!

Becca and Devon
The big day is December 12, 2009

Grow old along with me,
The best is yet to be,
When our time has come,
We will be as one.

Me and My Girls

Forever sisters, Forever friends!

Rebecca on her Baptism Day, note the broken arm!

Brother and sisters we may be.....
But also best friends, are we!

I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart. Our life together has just begun You're part of me my little one. As mother with child, each day I grew, My mind was filled with thoughts of you. I'd daydream of the things we'd share, Like late-night bottles and teddy bears. Like first steps and skinned knees, Like bedtime stories and ABC's. I thought of things you'd want to know, Like how birds fly and flowers grow. I thought of lessons I'd need to share, Like standing tall and playing fair. When I first saw your precious face, I prayed your life be touched with grace. I thanked the angels from above, And promised you unending love. Each night I lay you down to sleep, I gently kiss your head and cheek. I count your little fingers and toes; I memorize your eyes and nose. I linger at your nursery door, Awed each day I love you more. Through misty eyes, I dim the light, I whisper, "I love you" every night. I loved you from the very start, You stole my breath, embraced my heart.
