Pictures Of Mom

This is a picture of my mom in Hawaii. She lived there for a couple of years before she married my dad.

In this picture my mom is working at the library in Hawaii. I think she looks like my sister Ammanda.

This was the last photo I had taken w/ my mom before she passed. It was taken on grandparent's day 2 yrs. ago.

A week ago Shyanne and I went to Nathan's work to bring him some things and while we were there he came out to the car w/some shirts he wanted to try on Shyanne for a Valentine's gift. Well she was pretty tired because she had just gotten out of preschool and we had to run some errands so she was not in the mood to cooperate. As Nathan was holding the shirts up to her she said "Daddy can you hurry I don't want to be here all day"! Nathan and I were completely shocked and started chuckling (quietly) then Nathan asked if I had said that to her and I said no. So it seems like my almost 4 yr. old is turning into a 14 yr. old. If this is what I have to look forward to with a teenager heaven help us ;)

This is where we went sledding and had fun playing in the snow. We think it's called Maverick Mountain outside of Prescott.

Her first time
making a snow angel- not bad!

Shyanne absolutely loved playing in the snow as you can see. She loved sledding, but would cry whenever the snow kicked up in her face; so Nathan put her behind him and she was as happy as could be and would hurry up the mountain as fast as she could for another run!
