Well... the holiday season is passed. We had a really fun time!! We left Yakima on Xmas eve day when Eric got off work and headed over to Idaho to be with my Mom and Dad, Kevin, Ryan and Kyle and their families, and Grandma Alice.
We were so excited to have Grandma with us this Holiday season, it made it alomst a perfect christmas. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to have Kevin's kids with us, and Kodi. We have never had a Xmas without Kodi, but this year he was with his mom... so you won't see any pictures of Kodi with the family.

I was sooooooo excited to get to see Jayden and baby Ashlee. Jayden is 3 and getting to be such a BIG boy!! He is going to be our ring bearer in the wedding, and Ashlee one of three flower girls. Kyle's boys Beckham and Jake have also grown a ton since we last saw them Christmas day was so much fun having us all together, laughing, and talking. Mom and Dad have over three ft of snow right now... it was incredible how much snow had fallen. Eric, Gavin and I got to take Jayden out for his first time ever sledding!! It was so much fun, and I got some pretty cute pics. We went to Mission park.. a place that brought back alot of memories for me, as that was the first park I ever took Gavin sledding at. Jayden thought it was great... with his Lightening McQueen coat we bought him, and matching hat and gloves. Little Ashlee lovvvvvves her uncle Eric... as you can see from the pics, she stuck to him big time... and Iam pretty sure the feeling was mutual. It was pretty sweet. Like I said we missed Hailey and Hunter VERY VERY VERY much and hope their xmas was good and filled with Joy, and hope they will be back in Washington soon with their Daddy...WHERE THEY BELONG. And as for our Kodi.. hopefully things will be different as we round the corner to the New Year, and a new parenting plan. We are trying soooo hard to make thing easy for Kodi, and per his request hopefully this new parenting plan will be just the thing to bring more consistency into his little life, and help him see where his home TRULY is....but unfortunately Kodi has to be the one to realize this. All we can do is hope and pray things will get better..until then we will continue to do what we are doing, loving him and accepting his choices.
