What has been going on at the Baker household

It has been a while since my last post. We have been quite busy here in the Baker house. We helped Kati get ready for her wedding. She was married June 14th. It is always nice to attend a Temple wedding. It makes me reflect back on my sealing and how I felt when I was there and the advice that was given to us by the gentleman that performed it. It also makes me think of the future and the things I would like to adjust to improve my family. I was so proud of Kati and her new spouse Boston. They looked so happy and you could see in his eyes that he truly loved her. The kids and I spent the week of the 9-14th in Heber. The weather was fantastic, I was not quite ready to come home to the heat again. When we arrived home we helped Tre' get ready for All-Star tryouts. I was not able to attend but his dad said he did well and congrats to him he made the team. His first game is Saturday, we are excited to watch him play. Tucker and Tatum started a Hip Hop class when we got back. Tucker enjoyed his first class. Tatum was not so sure but lightened up by the next class. It is quite comical to watch their facial expressions while they are learning their moves. We also attended Ryken's birthday party. He is Jared's sisters little boy. Thanks Cara, Justin, and Ryken. The kids had a blast. I might have to invest in one of those blow up water slides now.

Happy Birthday Ryken!!

Happy Birthday Azure

June 9 was my sister Azure's birthday she would have been 25. She was killed in a car accident on October 13, 2007. I just wanted to express my love for her and wish her a happy birthday. We were able to celebrate it for her with family. She was a great person. She always had a smile on her face and my kids sure loved her. I know that our Heavenly Father had a plan for her and she is fulfilling that plan. How greatful I am for the Atonement and the knowledge that I have that I will see her again someday and that she is doing a great and wonderful work with our Father in Heaven. I love you Azure. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you and your beautiful smile. Eric has your smile and what a great joy it is to see it.It is an honor to have a choice spirit for a sister. Happy birthday sis.
