Let's Go Fishing!

Over Memorial Day Weekend we took Kelsey fishing. It was a great day to be outside! I didn't know how Kelsey would feel about the fish but she did great!!! She was actually quite good at it!! She caught 5 different little fish! Each time she would reel them in, look at them and then was ready to try and catch another one!! She didn't want too touch them though! I can't blame her, I won't touch them either!! Next time we go I think we will take her out in the boat! She is our little fish and loves anything that involves water! I got some very cute pictures of our day at the lake!!

Luke Came To Visit!!!

Last night Meredith brought Luke over! Kelsey just adores him (as do I)! We were so excited to see him! He was probably so sick of us holding him and me taking pictures!! But we had a great time and he is growing up so fast!!!
ISN'T HE CUTE?


KELSEY WAS READING HIM A BOOK! ADORABLE!
As an added bonus, here are some track pictures from Track. They had another "Run For Ribbons" night! This time Uncle Troy came and watched! Thanks, Troy!

One Last Goodbye!

Last night we said goodbye to our dear friends Mike and Michelle and of course their puppy Mo. We spent the evening feeding the geese, playing at the park and then went and had ice cream. I didn't want the night to end! They will be missed!!!! We were so lucky to have so many memories with them! It was so hard telling them goodbye and wish they could stay here. However, we know that they will love being closer to their family and wish them nothing but the best of luck in their next adventure!!!





MIKE, MICHELLE AND MO . . . WE WILL MISS YOU!!

Mother's Day Song!

THIS CHAPTER IS . . . .CLOSED!!

Today someone else will be the proud owner of the first house we called home for just about five years! I hope she enjoys it just as much as we did! There were a lot of great memories in that home. It was our first house together, it was the house where we started our family, we had great neighbors and it will always hold a special place in our hearts. However, we are very excited at what lies ahead. Now begins the journey of looking for a new house!! We are very excited and have a good idea at just what we are looking for!! It is just a huge added bonus that it is a BUYER'S MARKET! Some things that top the list that we didn't have before, more bedrooms and more bathrooms!! We are going to enjoy every second of looking at houses and finding just the perfect house for our family. Thanks to Mom and Dad, Corissa, Troy, Mike and Michelle and Jeremy for helping us move!! We would still be trying to get things done if it weren't for you guys!!! We appreciate everything you have done for us!!!!

Everything went out one box at a time! I didn't realize how much stuff we have!This was Kelsey saying goodbye to her room. She was sad but she had also just pinched her finger! I have assured her that she will have a nice big room at our new house! She was okay with that.Daddy and Kelsey were closing the door for the last time!We are officially homeless! We will call storage unit 272 our home for now! I don't think anything else will fit in there!

First Dentist Appointment!!

Well today Kelsey had her first dentist appointment. She was so good!! She did everything they told her to do and didn't fuss about anything. The dentist was VERY impressed with her teeth and said that she has perfect spacing!! Hopefully she will follow in my foot steps and have limited problems with her teeth! I have been really fortuante and aside from having braces my visits to the dentist are pretty much limited to my 6-month check-ups! I want to keep it that way!
HERE ARE SOME DENTIST PICTURES
