3 years ago today...

We got a little boost from this guy....











Bringing us the cutest little monkey we had ever seen.....


















I spent hours upon hours just looking at his adorableness, learning some lessons(nursing,ack! who knew it was so hard?) and falling in love....


















Then discovering that the feeling was mutual.....


















We watched him learn and grow. Discover new skills and talents...trying new things(like that brief period as a toilet paper salesman in early '06......)























Followed by stints in the fields of: Dishwashing


















Tractor driving....



















Fruit tasting...


















until finally landing on his life long calling...dirt farming.























Late 2007 also brought some new challenges...























But he figured out how to deal with them.....


















And became the best big brother...EVER!


















Happy Birthday Gavin...We don't know what we would do without you!
