May 6, 1998 A very active boy was born into the family. Shawn Robert Burgdorfer. We are so happy that God brought you into our lives 10 years ago. You are a very special boy to your Dad and I.

You were so cute with that big smile in the Michigan onsie.

Here are a few more snapshots throughout your ten years. Five years old on the Woodchucks T-ball team. The A-Town getting ready for school park night. Amanda and you when we were staying at a Hotel on the Ohio and West Virginia border on the way to see Grandpa Lehr and your Aunt Gina, Uncle Steve and Cousin Steven.

Then there are pictures of you when you and I are being silly with a clown wig and Groucho glasses. You use to sit on your Dad's lap and play with your matchbox cars and drive them on his chest and lap and make vrooooooooom noises. Sometimes you got really loud too. It was so cute and I know your Dad enjoyed it. I know he loved you and misses you very much.

Now we have a new beginning and a new family to add with some of our old family. You have a wonderful Step-Dad and two new brothers. You also have another Grandpa and Grandma, Aunt Sara and Cousin Connor. We are very blessed to have so many people that love us.

The next pictures are when we went to the whitecaps game and you got to run out in the center field with one of the players for the National Anthem.

Then the last two pics are when we were in Mackinaw last year. We had so much fun visiting all the forts, camping, site seeing, the mystery spot.
I cannot believe you are Ten now!! Where does the time fly. You are so special to me Shawner Bauner. I love you so much!!!!!!! God has truly blessed me by letting me have you.
