I just had to post this because I think this made Chris' day today!

I got the mail a little while ago and in it was a package. I looked and saw that it was from a family member, one that Chris has not met.

I opened it up and there was an adorable little dress and black shoes for Ryleigh but that was not all....

There wrapped up in a little package on it own with a note on it that says, "Someone has to be a Georgia fan" was this.....

I sent a picture of it to Chris and he commented back to me how much he liked that. Of course he did, It was Ryleigh's 1st (and only) Georgia outfit!

Come to think of it, it is the ONLY Georgia outfit that anyone (besides Chris) in the house has.

She will look very cute it in and we will take pictures of her in it but she WILL NOT be allowed to wear it on November 13th of this year!!

I think Chris has a new favorite family member!!

1st day of "school"

..... ok, it's not really school, it's CMO (Children's Morning Out) but it IS school to K. This year she is in the Caterpillar room (the 2 year old room).

Like all mom's I was excited to get those 1st day pictures before we loaded up in the car. Like most kids, Kennedi was not very cooperative about these photos.

Here is the 1 picture that I got before we left the house!

Nice huh? As you can tell.. she was ready to go!

When we got to school she was ready to go in! I tried to get a picture by the CMO sign.... That was a big no go! She took off towards the playground. So instead we walked into the building to her class.

As soon as we opened the door to the building you could hear the screams and cries of the kids that did not want to leave their moms/dads. It was so sad to hear all the crying. I figured that as soon as Kennedi saw the kids in her class cry she would join in. At first she grabbed onto me (while Chris signed her in) and then about 2 minutes later she was ready to go into the room.

When we looked in to see how she was doing, we saw this

note the train and the Dora doll... two of her favorite things!

and then we noticed that it was all the boys crying. The girls were just playing and checking out all the new things. I loved the look on Kennedi's face as she walked by the crying boys. She had this puzzled look on her face trying to figure out why they were crying! It was precious.

So now she is home, in for her nap and I am hoping that Thursday is as smooth for her as today was.

It's party time!!

A few weeks back was K's 2nd birthday. We would love to have celebrated it then but the big boys were at their dads house for their summer trip. Chris and I decided that we could not have a party without the brothers that Kennedi adores so we impatiently waited to have the party.

This past weekend we were able to celebrate with a few family members and friends.

K and one of her cousins, M...

We had a great time and Kennedi got lots of great things.... The theme this year definately was Dora! We can now open up a Dora the Explorer store right out of the house!

Aunt Barbie loved to get some Ryleigh time

The Dora cake.... and it was GOOD!!

K blowing out the candles... She had to get the help of daddy.

Probably one of my favorite looks is K's CHEEEEESSSEEE face!

ahhhh now on to think about the oldest's birthday... Thankfully he agrees that the 16th party is more of a girl thing so he thinks he is opting out of that. But at any rate I will have to think of something creative for him!
