Christmas 2013


I am sad I didn’t get more picture of Kade and Daion sledding. That's what they did for about 2 or 3 days! Then all the snow melted!

  IMG_1367We went to see my grandparents and got a picture of my mom, her Dad and Keegan and Kamryn. Sorry mom! This was teh best one. I think you are in the middle of saying Cheese!

Me and my Grandpa Alder. Kiah loved uncle Ryan! There is Kade working on the Christmas Story puzzle! It was a tough one! I cant take any credit for the edging but I did complete a huge portion of the rest of the puzzle!


The Finished product! Ashley made the kids hats! Kamryn and Keegan love theirs!


Christmas eve we made yummy cookies for Santa! Well Grandma did and the kids decorated them!

Kade had his last baseball game. He got a gold glove award because he didn’t drop a ball he caught until the very last game!


We went to the Anthem outlets and saw the “real” Santa! They also have the nation’s tallest real Christmas tree!

Lanee’s Legacy Box Making Event and a Mommy/Son Date!

Lanee’s Legacy had a box making event where families could come and make boxes in memory of their baby who passed away. My parents and Ryan’s Mom and Stepdad each donated a box and then our family donated a box so we were able to make 3 boxes in memory of Kooper.

Kade and I decided to just go since Ryan wasn’t feeling too well. We first stopped at Applebee’s for dinner! Then headed off to Mesa to help setup for the event!



He always asks for a bowl full of cherries!


This sticker went on the back of each box.

We had such a good time. Kade made a new friend and we were able to do something in memory of Kooper! We love and miss him so much. Kade is always talking about him and asking questions. He really just wishes his brother Kooper could come back and live with us! One day he will and we will get to hold him in our arms again!
