Sick on Valentine's Day...

Poor Kenidee- she started feeling sick on Sunday. Ken and My Dad gave her a blessing that night, and I was hoping she would be better for Monday. Not so- she woke up in the night with a fever, so I knew she was staying home.... She was so upset to miss her Valentine's Party at school.
This morning, she still wasn't better. I was thinking it was the flu because she was having the same symptoms as Rylie when she was sick in December.. I called to talk to the nurse this morning and she thought it was the flu as well, but said she should be seen so they could document it... I was a little frustrated because if it was the flu, there isn't much that can be done.
I am very glad I went, because it wasn't the flu at all... Kenidee has the start of an ear infection, and the start of bronchitis! I am also glad our insurance just kicked in, and we got our cards in the mail yesterday!!

This Quote is just for ME!!

"Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing" ~ Phyllis Diller

I so love this quote, and when I saw it today, it made me feel a little better! Having three little ones running around, I constantly feel like I am cleaning something up while another room gets dirty! I know it will get better as they grow older... and I am going to try to enjoy this time because I know it will be gone before I know it! My littles ( and Bigs) are growing too fast!!

I am BACK!!!

Hi ! I know... it's been way too long! I am going to be better at blogging about our life, and also share great deals that I have been finding lately! I am always on the lookout for awesome finds...

New Pictures

I took Kenidee, Rylie and Braden for some new pictures last month... new but "old" at the same time!! :)

It was fun to do, and they turned out cute! I just wish there was a way to make them stop growing so quickly!! :)

Our Rylie Roo!

Things have been a little hectic for me since Ken left the beginning of February For Iraq... and I have gotten behind in blogging.

So- Rylie turned three in February! The 24th to be exact. I figured I better do this now since Kenidee's birthday is tomorrow!

We ended up doing a combined birthday party for Rylie and her friend Kelsey at Kelsey's house(thanks Barb and PK!). They had a little Mermaid Party and had lots of fun. Rylie had her sights set on a Dora party so we had a Dora cake at the "family" party.

Kelsey and Rylie tired but happy after their party!

Our princess, Rylie coloring her Ariel picture at the party.
Rylie then.....

and now with Grandma's kitten Xi- Lan!( Kenidee named him after the baby panda at the Atlanta Zoo).

A Special Day

Today is our 8th Wedding Anniversary. I feel so blessed to be married to such a wonderful man whom I love more every day! It is very tough though- since he is gone overseas again. We will celebrate soon when he is home in June for a break!

Thinking back to our wedding day.... or the night before. My parents flew in the night before, and that was the FIRST time they met Ken! We couldn't afford to fly out before the wedding and neither could my parents, so it just ended up that way.They had only talked on the phone, so my parents trusted that I was making the right decision! It was also the first time they met their Grandkids! Mom and Dad were both so excited- and it layed off some pressure for me- hey, I gave them grandkids right away! lol
