Baylee is in training for the Special Olympics. She is competing in the swimming in April. So amazing to see all they do for these little kiddos at school.

A Proud Moment

Can you believe Riley is old enough to be at Prom? I am so proud to be Riley's Mom. He has truly gone from a little boy in to one fine young man. Riley and I were having one of those late night talks(I remember having with my mom) I told Riley that the day he was born was truly one of the best days of my life. It was when my life began. I can not imagine where I would be if I had made different decisions in my life. He has been a true rock in our family and I love him so much.

My Grandma Walker

My Grandma walker is such a special person in my life. I have learned so much about the importance of family from her. It is so hard every time I go home to Idaho and see her and try to hold back the tears wondering if this will be our last special moment together. Words can never express the love I have for my Grandma. She is truly an idol in my life and I hope someday to be just like her. I love you Grandma!

Baylee's Baptism

What an awesome experience this was for everyone. It still brings tears to my eyes to this day. There have been a few times in my life when I have felt the spirit so strong and this was one of them. Riley baptized Baylee, and I hope he never forgets the feeling he felt that day. He sat with Baylee on his lap in front of everyone and as Bro Diehl spoke the tears steamed down Riley's face. As a mother I was so proud of him, and know he will make an awesome missionary some day. ALL our family came. We have the best most supportive family every! I truly felt humble and blessed that day.

Knocking Out Retts

A few more Pictures from the event. Shy and Mickey Kicked Riley's butt in the pie eating contest.

"Knocking Out Rett Syndrome"

Another great year! This event was awesome. They had Kevin Black(Clint Black's brother) there. All my brothers, sister, and family came to support the cause. Shy went above and beyond for this event and Baylee and I love her so much and are blessed to have the support that we do. I hope someday they will find a cure, but for now if Baylee could talk she would say she is happy despite her disease. To have our children loved and happy is there anything more?

Two weekends ago we went to Flathead Lake with Lori, Shy, and my Mom and Dad. It was a ton of fun. I Love my sister and enjoy all the memories we make together. I love the picture of my Dad and Riley. Can you believe how much Riley has grown? He will be 16 in Sep.

The kids are getting big. Gracee will be 3 in Sep, Kynslee just turned 6 in July, Baylee will turn 8 and be baptized in Oct, and Riley will be the BIG 16 in Sep. Where does time go?

We went to Glacier National Park last weekend. BEAUTIFUL! We had a ton of fun. The kids loved seeing the bears and goats. There is nothing better than making memories with the family.

We helped with Where's Waldo at the mall for Mutual. Riley and Brady did not recognize us. Maybe my CTR nose ring threw them off. It was a ton of fun.

I love to hear Baylee talk. One of my new favorites is BYE. Everyone loved her french braids and they wanted to know if she could get any cuter. Her shirt says close to perfect. I figure that explains it all.

I am trying to potty train Gracee. Kynslee potty trained herself at 29mo, and seems Riley will be 16 in Sep I can't remember how much patience it takes. She likes to have all the Disney barbies Shy gave her for Christmas sitting against the wall in the bathroom I guess for support. She also keeps asking, you pwoud of me huh Mommy. I am so pwoud especially when we get to do the pee pee dance. Don't worry I won't blog it. Wish me luck!

Grandma Walker came to my house 2 weeks ago. The girls absolutley love when she comes. They like to cater to her every need. I put Kyns and Gracee in the tub and it just so happened that Grandma needed to use the bathroom. When she stood up her pants fell to the ground. Kyns and Gracee started singing Lookin like a fool with your pants on the ground. We all laughed!!!! I love my Grandma so much, and cherish all the time we get to spend together
Ok! I am going to try and get back in to blogging. These are some pictures of The Goody Family Reunion. This is the 14th year Jasen's family has been getting together at Pine Basin. We have so much fun tubing, snowmobiling, and playing games. Even a bump to the head doesn't stop the fun. It was a hard year with the loss of John's parents, Uncle Clair, and Kyle, but everyone made the best of it. John once said if you stop a tradition it is hard to get it back. This is one tradition I hope never ends. It is not very often for kids to know their 3rd and 4th cousins as well as our kids do. I love spending time with family. That is what life is about Time Together!

We had an awesome Christmas as you can tell. The kids are growing up to fast! I love spending time with family. We spent Christmas Eve with Jasen's family. This year we got matching jammies for everyone which was fun. We stayed up till 2 playing hand and foot. Christmas day we went to my Mom and Dads. The kids have so much fun playing together and get along so well. They are the best of friends and I hope they always stay close! We went to Bryon and Shelley's cabin for New Years. It was beautiful and so much fun. Again 3 in the morning almost every night for what I am going to call "Extreme Hand and Foot". It doesn't get better than that!

Gracee loves the song "That's Not My Name". This video didn't show the chorus, but she can really move her hips when it starts. I laugh every time. This will be our talent this year at the Eddie Christmas party. I know you can't wait.

Halloween Weekend

Riley did an amazing job at designing and carving our pumpkins this year. He is so talented. We had Bryon, Shelley, Their kids, Jody, Tracy, Tate, Linda, and Elaine here for Halloween. Well we let the kids think that is why they came. Riley and Mickey stayed with all the little kids, so the adults could go to the Grizz vs Weber game. No question as to who won. GO GRIZZ! That night the kids dressed up and went trick or treating. Then we stayed up playing Hand and Foot until 5am. It was a ton of fun.
