Goodbye Grandpa Bob!

The beginning of January Rodger's Grandpa died, it was all the sudden and unexpected. They lived in Kettle Falls Washington so I only saw him a few times but enough to know he was a great guy. The stories that were told at the funeral were amazing about the life he lead and the great example he was. Rodger's Grandma has been in a nursing home for awhile and doesn't remember a whole lot....who anyone is, where she is at, or the fact that her husband had just died. It was a really draining 3 day trip and the flight there and back were miserable but we wouldn't have missed it. I really miss Washinton, we have so many family and friends, nieces and nephews, cousins, etc. The girls had so much fun and didn't want to come home. Rodger and I are both defenitely blessed with great families! After the funeral we went to visit his Grandma and sung her the songs that we sang at the funeral!

Grandma Lois at the nursing home...such a cute lady!

Tayler is 6

I can't believe Tayler is 6, where did the time go...she looks so grown up. Tayler could hardly wait for this day to get here, she begged me back in October to hand out invitations for her birthday party so if you could imagine then until the end of January was a very long wait. I was so close a few times just having her party so we didn't have to hear about it everyday but she is to smart...I couldn't pull that off. We got her a scooter for her Birthday and she LOVES it, our entire neighborhood has one of these so she just didn't fit in riding her bike (she would tell me) Now I can't keep her inside which is good because the weather here right now is awesome!

Tayler of course woke up at around 7 a.m which is not like her at all. Anyone that knows this little girl knows that she usually sleeps until around 10 because she hates the mornings...she was so excited she could hardly stand herself

PRESENTS...she made a haul on gifts, I think she got enough for 3 birthdays!

There were so many little girls in my house, Tayler just wanted a princess party with girls only...she didn't even want her dad there. Later she told him that he could come as the prince as long as I dressed up in my wedding dress and was the Queen. Ya...I'm 6 months pregnant...not going to happen. Even if I wasn't it was definately more fun watching all these little girls dress up and have fun. Naomi isn't in any of these pictures because she woke up this day and started throwing up and had diarea, it was so sad. I sent her to Grandma's house and had to Clorox my whole house before kids showed up. Naomi really wanted to be there and she would have had so much fun. Now that Tayler is 6 I am officially feeling old...especially when I think of being married for 8 years, Naomi is almost 4 and our 3rd one is one the way. Crazy Feeling! I love being a mom and my girls are amazing. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Happy Birthday Tayler!
