Rylee is a FUNNY girl!!!

So this morning I decided I need to clean my room. Little miss Rylee thought she needed to help but instead of helping she was making a BIGGER MESS. I was getting so frustrated with her. So I put on a movie for her and when I went to check on her this is how I found her. She is seriously a funny, funny girl! She even put her boots on with her pj's, that cracks me up. What was shocking to me, she was actually sitting and watching the movie I put on for her. Maybe I can get more cleaning done alittle more often!!

My Grandparents 65th!

On Saturday my grandparents had their 65th wedding Anniversary. It was so good to see them and to see how happy they both where. I can't believe they are still kicken it! My Grandparents have done so much for me. When I was younger I went on lots of trips with them and spent alot of time having fun with them. I love them both so much but there is something special about my grandpa. My Grandpa is the sweetest man I know, he is always happy and is so Christ like. I want him to know how much he means to me. When I was holding his hands on sat night and talking to him he said some precious things to me and I will forever cherish that moment. I'm not sure how much longer he will be in our presence, so every moment with him was so important to me. After we were done talking I had tears in my eyes and Rylee had asked me what was wrong. I told her that mommy had happy tears. We had a nice evening visiting with everyone. We where able to take some family snap shots, except one of my brothers wasn't able to be there. We love you David and we missed you!

Happy Birthday To Our Dad & Papa!!!

My dad was telling Ryan & I a couple of days ago he really wanted a tree to plant in his front yard. Well since his Birthday was June 12th, we thought that would be a perfect B-Day gift. So as a Family we went & purchased the tree. The tree he wanted is a African Sumac. Ryan & Rylee had tons of fun digging the hole for it. It sure will be a great tree when it's all grown & it will give lots of shade. The things that make my Dad the Happiest are his Grandkids & things that grow. We love him so much and are so Greatful for all he does for his Family. WE LOVE YOU DAD!!!
