Wow it's been 8 months since I last posted anything on my blog.  That either goes to show you that everyone is busy on FB and no one has time to blog anymore.  I'll try to catch you up!

We had a fun Halloween, nice Thanksgiving, Bless'd Christmas and kicked off the new year with lots of changes.
Our kids all moved to Southern California and left us as empty as "EMPTY nesters can get!

Koston is growing like a weed.  He is 10 months old and has 8 teeth, crawling everywhere and is loving California just HATES being away from his Granna that spoils him rotten.

Ashley & Tyler are doing well in Aliso Viejo and they're enjoying their  journey also.  Duke loves his walks especially when Granna and grandpa are visiting.  They manage to make trips home and it's always good to see them all.

Jamie is keeping busy saving "SOLES" and I try to stay our of trouble.  With lots of time on my hands now that's a hard task sometimes.

Hope all is well at your house and keep in touch with is this summer.

Stay cool!
Hugs, Liz & Jamie

Koston's Dedication Sunday

What a Beautiful day in the life of the Hylton's.  Sunday Koston was dedicated at Cornerstone church.  Where his Mom and Dad promised before God to bring him up in a Christian home.  He is such a blessing to our families that just love on him 24/7. Below is a collage of friends and family that came to his blessing.  God is Good.  Ashley and Tyler are Kostons Godparents also known as Ninos. We hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and I know we Zonie's are ready for FALL.  We have had enough of this heat! God Bless Love, The Coffeygrounds

Amazing Aunt Luz

May 14th family and friends gathers to celebrate the most amazing Luz's 85th birthday.  She is my Dad's sister that he loved and adored so much.  I remember my Dad asking me to take care of his sister if anything ever happened to him.  I've kept my promise.
She is so easy to love.  This incrediable lady has been through so much and she keeps on trucking.  If a mountain stands in her way she goes right through it!
Tia Luz Happy 85th and I plan to celebrate many more with you.

In Memory of Our Mother/Grandmother

You would have turned 91 today,
if you were still here.
Although you are so far away,
our hearts have kept you near.

The pain has eased a bit,
yet has not gone away.

It will always stay apart of us,
until we join you one day.

We send our love to you,
from all our hearts to yours.

Just think,a birthday spent in Heaven,
means you will spend it with the Lord.

Egg-citing things happening this month

Wow it's already APRIL  and as the saying goes April showers bring May flowers.  Well, it is literally raining right now as I am typing this note.  Love, love, love, the rain but unfortunately us Zonnies don't see much of it.

The Baby story:
Speaking of showers... we are in the busy planning stages of Andrea's baby shower the end of this month.  She makes the cutest pregnant Momma if I may say so, and the Dad is as cute.  Only months left until we get to hold our precious baby boy!  That boy will never see the ground from everyone holding him :) LOL
Andrea and Chris are preparing their house for the babies arrival.  The first picture is remodel in progress.  Of course Andrea is just supervising!

Now for the Wedding story. 
 Plans are coming along nicely for
Tyler and Ashley.  
The bridesmaids found dresses last weekend and they are so beautiful on each one of them just like they are inside and out.  Here is a picture of just a few of the girls with the BRIDE :)
With only 6 months left we are right on schedule with all the planning.  They kids engagement pictures will be this month and I can't wait to see them.

Jamie and I are keeping busy.  We have 4 new members to our KOI family. Dyson, Goldie,Shananie and one other nameless one.  Jamie has them trained to come to him when it's time to eat! They are entertaining.  He continues to save "soles" and love it. You can check out the web page at: Eastvalleyfootandankle .com

I'm staying busy this month with lots of friends and family in and out of hospitals, planning a baby shower and planning a wedding, but soon I will be taking off those hats and leaving for the beach for 5 weeks this year.  I'm coming home one week early in case the baby decides to come.  I can't miss that BIG event!

We hope lots of good stuff is happening in your side of the world.  Let us know and don't just be a stalker on our blog say something!  LOL
 Hugs to all

Time is flying!

Well as you know their is a lot happening at the Coffey Grounds.  With only 3 months to go until our bundle of joy arrives, we are busy planning a baby shower.  Mom, Dad and baby are all doing great.

Then with only 7 months to go the wedding plans are coming together nicely.  It's always a good feeling to check off things from the very long list.  Ashley and Tyler are keeping busy with the plans and life but enjoying it all.

The weather has been just perfect and we are enjoying every minute of it.
One more thing on the calendar is our yearly beach time.  San Clemente here we come.  I plan to use these 6 weeks for just beach time.  I'll put my wedding and baby hat away for awhile and rest up.

So as you can see life is busy but a good busy!
God is good in so many ways and we are so thankful for family & friends to enjoy this time in our lives with us.
Love you all

Life at the Coffey Grounds

Well the weeks are passing quick and the baby is growing fast.  Only 3 months left till we meet our new little bundle of joy.  The parents -to- be are busy registering everything they need.  Wow how times have change!
They are both so excited and doing well.

The wedding plans are coming along nicely also.  We found "THE DRESS" last weekend and it is as beautiful as the Bride.
The bridesmaids and Matron of Honor came over to help us prepare the "Save the Dates" for the out of town guest and those are being mailed today.  Yeah, I love checking two things off the list!

We are enjoying Spring Break at home sprucing up the house and cleaning out some unused items.  Nothing like spring break with beautiful weather.

Our friends Betty and Ed from Texas are here visiting so we gathered up all the troops and had a wonderful BBQ Tuesday night. It's so great to see everyone and our kids all grown up and just catching up with every ones lives.  We are so blessed to have this circle of friends that even though we don't see each other all the time we can pick up right where we left off.

Well as you can see the life at the Coffey's keeps on trucking.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of my parents.  We sure miss them.  What could be better than the both of them rejoicing in Heaven with our Lord and Savior.
Keep in touch and enjoy everyday to the fullest.
