Here's Proof!

We are still here, alive and well. This blog has clearly been neglected and I'm not sure if I'm back for real or not. If you can't live without hearing from me here, let me know.

Here are a few updated photos:

In true Princess form, I celebrated my last birthday in style at Disney On Ice! It was fun to see Makenna's face light up. Real princesses were there, which made it perfectly magical.

I'm sure that no one checks my blog anymore, but if you convince me I'm wrong I MAY consider returning. I can promise that the next post will happen in less than 13 months from now at least!

Can a 3 year old really know this already?

So just before Christmas, we realized that Makenna needed a new Santa hat, so this is the one she chose....

I was SURE she was going to pick the pink one, but she said to me,"Mom, the red one has a bigger jewel and bigger jewels are better!"

Boy, am I in trouble or what?

I know, I's been way too long!

So I am sorry for the lameness of my blog. I hope to start getting back into it. I cannot believe it has been since early October. Where does time go? I don't know, but if you find it...please send some my way! Here are some pics that represent the fall of 2008.

Makenna had a field trip to the pumpkin patch and LOVED it. Here she is with her gal pal, Cassidy.

Halloween: Pumpkins and Trick-or-treating - Makenna wanted to be a sassy M&M (which fits her personality to the T!) and Parker was a scary dragon.

First Day of School

So Parker started Kindergarden and Makenna started Preschool. They LOVE school. Parker loves riding the bus, math and Popcorn Friday. Makenna loves snacks, gymnastics class and "share day"
Since on Tuesdays and Thursdays Parker and Makenna both have school and they are at the same time, Breck usually takes Makenna and her buddy Cassidy to school, so I can take Parker to the bus stop. Darci picks the girls up so I can get Parker from the bus in the afternoon.
On Makenna's first day of Preschool, I was giving her hugs and kisses and she said, "Bye mom, I have to go to my school, stop kissing me!" Then when Breck dropped her off, he sat down by her just to make sure she was OK and not too scared and she said, "Daddy, this is Kenna's school, not daddy's school, bye!" Obviously, she is socially well-adjusted and very independent. Parker tends to be unsure of the unknown. He was a bit nervous that he wouldn't know how to get to his class or where the basketballs were for recess. He told me he figured out both on the first day, so now all is well.
****Note Makenna's bangs 3 MONTHS later!!!****

OK...I am back! Here it goes....

So lots has happened around these parts the last few months, so I will be posting a lot in the next couple of weeks. Let's start off with Makenna's lovely make-over that began our summer.

So it was a sunny afternoon and I was in the shower, only for about 5 minutes, and Makenna walked in the bathroom and said, "Mommy, Kenna did cut-cut." I didn't think I understood right since we hide our scissors on top of the fridge. So she repeated it again. I should have stayed in the shower and let it all sink in, but I reacted too quickly. So with shampoo in my hair I opened up the shower door and saw this....

Then, after I flipped out and kept yelling, "Why? Why? Why?" She kept saying, "Betuz I wanted too!" I didn't like that answer at all and kept saying, "why? Why? Why?" I sent her to her room and she started to cry, then she kept saying, "Kenna never cut-cut again" To this day, she still is afraid of scissors. Just a note: we were to have family and kid pictures that this day, still no professional pictures.

I am so lame!

I know it has been a LONG time since I posted. I have been waiting to Breck to get our pics of the camera and onto the computer. He won't let me do it because there are several hundred pics and I don't categorize them right. He still hasn't done it but said he would sometime today or tomorrow. I have some fun pics including Makenna's first haircut, done by none other than herself! The past month and a half have been very busy for us, so sorry about the delay!
