A small tribute

Rocky, Casey, Brigham, Hiram, Kirk, Dede, and Gene at the Brigham Baumgartner Golf Tournament just before Brig passed away. Even though he was a UTE fan and Laker Fan, he always made me laugh. Steve getting into a Russian Mig in San Diego. He battled to the end and always had a laugh. He always knew how to make you smile.
I found out on Sunday that my cousin Steve passed away from cancer. In the past 4 years I have lost him, my cousin Brigham (only 2 months older than me), and my Grandma Edde Gray (her picture will soon be added) to cancer. I don't like this disease and luckily my Aunt Annette is beating hers. I am glad that they aren't suffering anymore and that they are with our Heavenly Father.

A Grandma Edde Gray moment

When my siblings and I were growing up, we always went to our Grandma Gray's house. She had a big jacuzzi surrounded by mirrors. We would have huge bubble baths and get all sudsy. It was so much fun. When we saw this house and saw the jacuzzi I was so excited. I call my dad and tell him that I am having a grandma gray moment.

Malynda had her first sleepover and they played in the jacuzzi. When I told her about Grandma Gray she remembered her own special moments she had with her. Grandma passed away when she was almost 5 years old. She still talks about the stuffed dog that Grandma gave her and blake.


Here are the kids that I babysit. I enjoy raising my own child and have now 4 kids that I babysit for. THe boy dressed in spiderman has been with me the longest. I have been watching him since October and the Power Ranger for one week now. I have 2 other boys on the weekend.
