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

I am excited to check out the rest of her site!!

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!

Well, Kenidee's prayers finally payed off yesterday- it SNOWED!! She has been wishing and praying for snow all winter- and now that it is March we got it!! It started snowing while we were in church- and all the kids were super excited! They kept running and looking out the doors and windows every chance they got! (Ok- some of us adults were doing it too! )

Rylie didn't like holding it- as you can see by her face! (don't mind our garage doors- they are soon to be replaced! )

I love this photo of Kenidee- she looks so happy!

Unfortunately- we didn't get too much- other areas near us got more, but it was still beautiful and much enjoyed!
