Huge Thanks!!

As today marks 6 years since we lost our sweet baby girl, we rejoice as Skyler, our family and friends put in a life jacket loaner board at Issac Evans Park in Auburn. We have been able to donate hundreds of life jackets to facilities around Washington, who also place them on these life jacket loaner boards for people to borrow and return while at the the river or lakes. We are so excited we were able to put one in for Skyler's Eagle Project!!

We are so blessed to be surrounded by so many great people,who not only supported us at the eagle project but continue to show us so much love! We appreciate all the phone calls, text messages, flowers, chocolate, balloons and much felt prayers today as we continue our journey!

On Saturday morning, Tonya from King 5 news contacted us and wanted to do a story about the Paris White foundation. I wasn't prepared for her to say she wanted to do it "today" so I headed off to soccer to continue my normal Saturday activities knowing they would be there shortly after the game. I wasn't thinking we would have all of us there since Skyler was taking the SAT's. I just assumed this would be like the other interviews I've done. Boy was I wrong.... Sky made it home and our interview was quite long!! They included our whole family. We headlined the news and my 17 year old son did amazing!!

We appreciate all the love and support we get from not only our friends but our community!! AMAZING!!

Charlie Brown's Christmas Take 2

Cooper was Charlie Brown in the "Charlie Brown's Christmas" Story. He did an amazing job! A lot of lines to remember and even some singing and dancing!! Dallis was also part of this program since she goes to the same school. She is in the Play and Learn Class and they sang Away in a Manger and 10 little Angels. Here are a few Photo's from the night.

Happy Thanksgiving....Isn't it almost Christmas?

Thanksgiving is such a great time of year! I love how everyone starts to meta morph into more grateful loving giving people!! We are so blessed as a family. We have so much to be grateful for!
Our Turkey bowl was BLISS it was snowy!! Nothing makes my heart smile like the snow!! It truly was so fun!!
Our dinner was incredible as always Grandma Banker went above and beyond. Who makes 11 pies?
And Mrs. Claus.....That old lady dropped our PJs off on the roof. She's so sneaky, the kids kept checking the front door and didn't expect to find them on the roof??

Crazy how time flies!! I can still remember the day I delivered my baby boy!! Yep, Skyler is 17 and I am one sad mommy! I love seeing my kids grow, but I hate knowing the older they get the closer they are to moving on......Sky is such a great kid! He has an amazing testimony and truly desires to be good! He works hard in all he does and is constantly trying to get better at the things he is most interested in!
I couldn't be more proud!! Speaking of being proud....This 17 year old made 1st Team All League Kick Returner and
1st Team All League Line Backer
Today we went to IHOP for breakfast, came back to our house for some cake, ice cream and presents. He then went and got pedicures with Megan and Tayla! What a guy! :)

Chicken Fried Steak...His Favorite (yes he ate it all and then some)
