Being Grandparents is the BEST!

Being a Grandma has been such an awesome experience. I often wondered how a Grandmother's heart felt. Do you have that instant love, does your heart expand with each grandchild, how does it all feel? Just like you had thoughts and worries of having your own children, I have learned it is the same with this stage ... only it is BETTER. You do NOT have the responsibilities of parenthood... you just get to have FUN. They have truly been a joy to me.

Callie and Kenlee came for a visit in March. I was so worried Kenlee would not know us at all... and realistically she didn't remember us but after a few days, she warmed right up to us. Larry and I had a lot of fun with her... can't you tell? We built things, she tore them down.. it was great teamwork!

We LOVE these little Grandchildren SO MUCH!!

My Missionary with Birthday Wishes

Tylon's missionary email actually fell on my birthday. Here is a picture he sent while emailing us.

My Grandbabies!!

Here are my grandbabies: Kenlee Kay and Tavius Ryan.

Tavius Ryan is Amanda and Jadon's baby boy born May 16th, 2011

Kenlee Kay is Callie and Randon's baby girl born May 25th, 2011

Lil Tavius is not sure here in this picture. Tavius is pretty laid back. Kenlee wants all you attention. They are both sweethearts and are a pleasure to be with.

Can you tell I am a proud Grandma?

Here are the wonderful mothers (they are actually holding each others' babies). Callie with Tavius and Amanda with Kenlee.

Kenlee Kay Walters' Blessing

My Granddaughter, Kenlee Kay Walters, daughter of Randon and Callie was blessed on Father's Day, June 19th, 2011. She was given a beautiful blessing by her father. We went to Safford to Callie's parents ward for the blessing.

Kenlee is wearing the blessing dress her mother, Callie, wore when she was blessed.

Grandma Again... YAY!

On Wednesday, May 25th at 6:23pm, a beautiful baby girl, Kenlee Kay, was welcomed into the world by their parents, Randon & Callie.

Although it was a rough time getting here and ending in a C-section by mom, we are so thrilled, SO THRILLED she is finally here (8 days overdue). She weighed in at 7lbs, 11oz and 19 1/2 inches long.

It is so awesome to see your big tough boys become dads and see them gently handle and softly speak to their babies. I can't help but cry.

Beautiful Baby Girl, Lil Miss Kenlee

I am so excited to be a Grandma and so in love with both of those sweet babies!

Mother's Day 2011

I was truly spoiled on Mother's Day. It was an awesome day filled with family, love, laughter, food and gifts. I did miss my missionary call because he was in the MTC and too many missionaries there with so few phones that none of the missionaries get to call from the MTC.
Krissa and Tylon did make plans in having a gift there for me to open from Tylon.
After opening the gift.
The gift was a build-a-bear that Tylon made, dressed as a missionary. In his paw you push a button that says "Hey Mommy! Goodnight. Sweet dreams and Have a good day tomorrow. I love you and I miss you alot! Smak! (kiss) What an awesome gift made possible with the help from Krissa!
Tylon would come into our room every night and visit with his dad and me. Then, he would come and give me a kiss on the cheek and say Goodnight, I love you, have a good day tomorrow.
Now I can hear that every night he is gone (hopefully it will last 2 years!)
