My girlie!!!!.....

Some of you may know the the Rose family(Judy and Jerry Rose) have been and always will be a second family to me. They all have played such a huge and vital role in my life since I was 12 yrs. old, and I could not love them more if they were of the same blood! The two youngest of their family, Ashlee and Alicia(aka. "my girlies")who are twins, are just as much my little sisters as Karen and Annie are. Ashlee was just married this past September and now my little Leeshy has just recently gotten engaged! She was out here in Dallas in April visiting her (now) fiance's family who live about 15 mins. away from me, so she got to come visit me and the Waltons! I was super sad that we didn't get to hang out and play as we had originally planned to but I ended up having a terrible stomach flu most of the time she was here, and was lucky enough to get well enough before she left! It was soooooo good to see her-I love her so much! Definitely wasn't for long enough, but I guess it's always that way with family no matter how much time you get huh?> Anyways, I'm so excited for her and her upcoming marriage! She's so much fun, and such a beautiful, wonderful, talented girl with an amazing, incredible family! I was so glad I was able to meet her hubby to be! He's a wondeful guy and one lucky man!(but I'm sure he knows that!)
p.s. No worries, I'm very aware that one of my girlie's talents is making me more fully aware and confident that I must have Albino genes in my blood! I mean, how else could I have all of these tans sisters, and be whiter than a Giesha doll!hUH?!-LOL)

Nope, that's not my car......LOL

L-R...Josh, Alicia,(Walton Kids)>Katie, Sydney, and Peter......and then me on my tippy toes! I WISH I was that tall!

Auntie Karen comes to town and saves the day!!!.....

My sister Karen has just finished her sophomore year at BYU and she had a week off before summer semester started, so she came to visit!! She and I are nearly 6 1/2 yrs. apart, but she is one of my best friends-both of my little sisters are. I think I was already crying about her leaving before she even got here!(That probably only makes sense to my fellow "sisters" out there!)Anwyays, we had so much fun, and unfortunately, our last 2 days were spoiled with Carly and I coming down with the most violent stomach flu I have ever seen! Ryan was working all night at the hospital, and it hit me at about 5pm, and Carly around 10pm, and if Karen wasn't there, I don't know what we would have done! She definitely saved the day, and she and Carly became real close pals after the all night hours spent together over a pink mixing bowl, and a sippy cup of gatorade. Karen stayed up all night with her, and luckily Ryan was able to steal home around midnight and play nurse to me.It wasn't how I pictured spending our last couple days together, but we were sure glad she was there!
I love and miss you Karen!!!

Easter egg hunt at the Waltons!

It is so fun to have our dear friends, The Waltons, only 3 minutes away from us here in Dallas! They're also in our ward, which is tons of fun! I grew up with them in my ward in Louisville Kentucky, and used to baby-sit their kiddies, who now baby-sit Carly! Crazzzy! They've kind of become our family away from home-Anyways, we love them tons and Carly always loves going over there, so it was a treat to have Easter dinner and our Easter egg hunt with them and their family.

Braids for Carly!

Her hair is getting so long, and she looked so old when I braided it that day! My baby's not a baby anymore!! = (

Carly and Grampy!

This was all the way back in March, but hey, I'm trying to catch up. Grandpa Williams came to visit over Conference weekend, and Carly was loving it! I think her brains are still bogging around her head from all the "Hoarsey-hoarsey" she and Grampy played on his lap! Up and down and all around!
