Mi Querido Primo

Victor
May 18,1977 - April 1,2007
It has been a year since my dear cousin departed this life in the physical sense. I say physical because he is still with me daily in spirit. Victor was an amazing cousin, a wonderful son, a dedicated grandson, a faithful brother, a sweet nephew, and a loving friend. He truly could make anyone smile. I never met anyone who did not love Victor right away. He made you want to be a better person. Even though I do not see him anymore in this life, I am comforted with the knowledge that I will see him again. Victor, I love you and miss you and I know that you continue to make those around you smile.
Each Life That Touches Ours For Good
(verses from a hymn)
What greater gift dost thou bestow, What greater goodness can we know, Than Christ-like friends, whose gentle ways, Strengthen our faith, enrich our days. When such a friend from us departs, we hold forever in our hearts , A sweet and hallowed memory, Bringing us nearer, Lord to thee.

Little League Opening Day

" Getting pumped up for Opening Day"




Edmonds Brothers


The Rookie







Baseball is a big deal in our family. My husband always has said, playing baseball is like going to school. They have to go to school, they have to play baseball. The boys were very excited for opening day. The city we live in really does a great job with little league. On opening day they have a parade and a big ceremony. Andrew was especially excited because it is his first year. He had enough of watching the game from the bleachers. Dustin was also excited . Although he was more focused on searching for where they sold the bagels then his game. Lance is coaching their team this year. He really looks forward to baseball season every year. I love to watch my boys play baseball. Go D-backs!

BRING IT ON



We are now official teenage parents now that our house has been TP. Some boys in our ward thought it might be fun to decorate our home and stick forks in our yard. The best part was ,the cling wrap all around the jeep. It was all done in good spirit and made me remember my TP days. Kiely and I are in process of planning our retaliation. Any good ideas?

My Two Superheroes


I thought you all might enjoy seeing what happens on a rainy sunday afternoon in the Edmonds house. Kiely and Dustin put on these capes and were acting so crazy. I know it is shocking that the older two, were the ones that are all dressed up. I am glad that Kiely still likes to act goofy with her brother.
