Welcome Home Daddy

Kyle has been away from us this week. He took a group of college students on a mission trip to LA, yes that’s right, he was able to enjoy 60-70 degree weather while Kenedee and I suffered in the frigid cold, I think one night it got down to one degree.  Well, we’re very excited to have him home tomorrow evening, so in celebration, we decided to bake him a chocolate cake. Kenedee was quite the little helper in the kitchen.

And voila, we have a chocolate cake, sprinkles courtesy of Miss Kenedee Jane.

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about Kyle going out of town this week, Kenedee is at the age where sometimes having both parents around makes things a little bit easier, especially with me being pregnant and tiring easily. I have to say though, we had a great week, I think I only had to put her in timeout twice, I think it helped that we didn’t have a lot of errand running to do and were able to stay inside and play and stay warm. The Lord definitely helped me with my patience this week. One thing  I have learned about Kenedee’s personality is that I just have to sit back and let her be as independant as she wants (unless she’s going to harm herself of course), even though my personality is the type to want to rush rush rush and get things done quickly, I can’t always do that with her. I love her so much and am thankful for the time we were able to have together this week.


A Few of Her Favorite Things

Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to post, what can I say, life is very busy for us. I thought I’d share a few pictures of some of Kenedee’s favorite things she received for Christmas.

This would be her pink cowgirl hat her Papa Ken bought her.  She eyed this a couple months ago when her and Kyle were in Bass Pro, she was so excited when she opened it. Her thought is that she’ll wear it when she rides “Daisy”, the horse at Papa Ken’s house.

This is from part of her Princess Tiana dress up chest that she got, although she wasn’t to crazy about the “Princess and the Frog” movie, she loves Princess Tiana.

Her Princess Tiana flapper dress.

Her first pair of Toms from her Mimi.  Don’t know of many 4 yr. olds that would get this excited over a pair of shoes, but she was ecstatic when she opened them.  If you’ve never heard of this company, you should totally check them out, they give a pair of shoes away for every pair that is bought, plus they are super cute and comfy.

She did receive too many other gifts but these just happened to be some that we caught on camera. We had a wonderful Christmas, besides the 5 hrs. we waited in the airport, we were able to be around those that we loved, which is what is most important. Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year!!
