One of the most BEAUTIFUL Days for an August Wedding. The weather the day BEFORE the high was 114 degrees, the day OF the high was 92 degrees, and the day AFTER the high was 112 degrees. I guess that is what happens when you have 2 exceptional people getting married. Congratulations to Lauralie and Derek. Welcome Derek to the Walter Family. Sure glad we didn't scare you off. Thank you Aunt Drana and Uncle Doug for your INCREDIBLE HOSPITALITY and letting us use their backyard. Every thing was PERFECT. And thank you everyone for your help. We absolutely could not have done it without your help. YOU GUYS ROCK.

Grandma and Adriana loving on the twins
Mom has been here in Mesa with Adriana for 7 weeks. She came while Adriana was in the hospital before she had the twins. Mom has been an absolute life saver. What are we going to do when she goes home tomorrow. Mom is an amazing lady.
Layla Sandra and Lilly Ann Hancock. Such beautiful little girls.
Mikenna holding "her" baby Layla.
Savannah holding "her" baby Lilly
Before the twins were born Mikenna and Savannah were having an argument and Mikenna piped up to Savannah. "Well MY baby is going to be born first." Hence the reason Layla is Mikennas favorite and Lilly is Savannahs.
You know when the Photographer says "Cheese" there sure are alot of comedians. Here is our family picture minus 5 of us. We are going to try and "Crop" them in. Hopefully it will work. Anyway. It took A ton of effort on everyones part, but it turned out fantabulous. Thanks family for pacifying me. Now I realize the urgency. I just wish we were all there. I LOVE YOU ALL.

It's not that I don't want to post, its that when I sit down to post, it takes me SO LONG...
Grandpa and Grandma and Grandkids August 1994
Can you imagine going through this life without the support of family and friends? I can't. As Thanksgiving rolled around and the memories of 1994 Thanksgiving flooded back so vividly, I know that Heavenly Father let Dad choose his time. I remember sitting in his office with him and he commenting that he didn't want to leave mom when it was just the two of them. Well. The house was full. Ben and Michele and Adriana were there. Dad chose his time. I have struggled for YEARS with the fact that I wasn't there. That he was tired and I didn't get to talk to him on Thanksgiving. But I have in fact felt his presence many times since. One time in particular I would like to share. It was at the kitchen table. Adriana and the kids and I were sitting around it talking, crying, laughing. It was once again November. A time when we still struggle with this loss. Anyway, alot was going on and we were sharing thoughts and memories together. It seems that Adri and I were both having a "moment". We were remembering the times that dad would give us individual fathers blessings when we needed them and we both wished he was around at that moment. Anyway, I felt someone put their hands on my shoulders and give a gentle squeeze. I turned around thinking that it was Craig or Adam or one of the kids. Nope. No one. I turned around and said something to Adri. She said no one was there. The kids were either sitting with us or elsewhere. I felt it again. and this time I realized what it was. The spirit was SO strong, and we all felt it at that moment. We all had an incredible experience at that moment and we will cherish it.
