They will be missed

Kassie Lee will be remembered as being a wonderful mother. Her 8-year-old son, Jerym, will be remembered as a sweet, loving child who enjoyed sports. One day after a crash took their lives, family members gathered to share their memories.

Kassie was such a sweet girl, I was so sad to hear the awful news. When we were younger she lived just down the road from me and we grew up together. As kids we played together lots. My heart goes out to hear family. Her brother Adam works with my brother Corey and when hearing the horrible news, Corey went and spend most of the day at the hospital with their family for support.

Cadence's first day of preschool

This was Cadence's 1st day of preschool. She was so excited to go to school. She was wondering where the bus was, but I had to explain to her that she doesn't ride a bus, Mommy gets to take her. She is friends with all of the kids in her class, they are in her sumbeam class in primary. She started on Tuesday and goes Tuesdays and Thursdays. She was so excited when Grandpa picked her up the first day. She growing so fast I can't believe that she is going to be 4 soon!

The baby contest

The top picture is me and Kyndee up on stage for the baby contest. The bottom picture is Cody's Mom with us waiting for the contest to start. I know I don't look thrilled, but I was enjoying it. We were trying to get Kyndee to be happy.

The baby contest

I put Kyndee in the baby contest at the fair, and it was lots of fun. I wasn't going to, but then Cody's parents talked me into it, and also I decided I should put her in since I had put Cadence in when she was younger. I was so excited when I got a call saying they wanted us to come back for the finals on Saturday. She ended up getting 2nd place in her age group. The pictures in the white shirt is what all the babies had to wear the first day. At the final competition. The could wear whatever, but it was suppose to be casual. I found the dress she is wearing at Old Navy. It was so much fun getting her ready for the contest! I loved it! Can you tell she has attitude? She makes me laugh. Cadence had fun too, while the competition was going on Grandpa took Cadence to one of the bounce houses. She loved it!

The fair

We went to the fair over the weekend and had a great time! We got to take the kids on lots of rides, and go to the demolition derby (that was tons of fun), watch fireworks, get the kids id cards and fingerprinted ( the police were doing that), we ate lots of yummy food, and even put Kyndee in the baby contest. Although I was bummed that Cody was gone, we still had a great time. Cody's parent came with me and the kids, and my parents came for a while also. It was so nice to have help with the kids.

Pictures of Cody

Cody is working in Washington State for the next 2 weeks. He is working with a helicopter and crew on a fire. He sent me these pictures so I thought I would share them. I think that it is a beautiful place. I hate to have him gone, but thats his job, and I know he is working hard to support our family. The top pictures is the lake where the helicopter gets water to dump on the fire. The bottom picture is of their camp.
