Where in the world is Karen Shaker?

Hello fellow bloggers. Some of you may remember Karen Shaker. A long long time ago, she used to blog about her life. Unfortunately, she has found herself far too busy to communicate with the outside world. Luckily- she has a daughter that knows her password. Allow me to update you on the life of Karen.

Karen's husband, Gary, has been out of town for weeks at a time working very hard to support their family. So she is holding down the fort alone.

Matt, Karen's oldest son is now 22 years old. He is doing great working as a CSR.

His band and his music are really progressing!
And we trimmed his mullet. 
Kacey, Karen's first and only daughter is 20 and loving life. 
She has been practicing her homemaking skills and has just received her AA degree. She is also doing great with her photography! (Kacey's View)

Keaton, Karen's middle child, turned 18 years old this summer! He is preparing for his last year of high school football. This saddens Karen. For she lives to watch her boy play. 
Keaton now drives himself to school for his senior year!
Jake, the 13 year old boy genius, is still doing well with piano and taking care of his chickens. He just started 8th grade and is beaming with self confidence!
Little Red, Garrison, is now 12. He was given the Priesthood by his father and he just started junior high! He is adjusting well and having a lot of fun being a kid.

Karen should return shortly.... she has many things she is so excited to tell you! Like her new washer and dryer... her new desk... her new calling... her new hair cut.... AND we have a mouse!
