Happy 2nd Birthday Kinsey!

My Kinsey turned TWO! Can you believe it? I sure can't. However, I suppose when most people hear how well she can speak and that she can easily carry on a conversation, they usually think she's older than 2. But to me it's still a shocker. My baby can't possibly be 2! :-)

We had two parties for our Kinsey - a family one and a kid one. I love the parties! We had fun and Kinsey loved the parties. She totally got it this year and KNEW it was her birthday. She spent the day saying "It my berday!" So cute!

We decorated fishy cake #1:Loved everyone singing "Happy Birthday" to her:Actually knew how to blow out her candles this year:And then we did fishy cake #2 for the kid party. Here's our birthday girl at her fishy birthday party! (Can you see her fishy shirt?)The fishy decorations!Showing me how old she is!We put the Happy Birthday sign and asked her what it said. She said, "Ummm, Daddy love me!" heheSome of Kinsey's friends at her party! We decorated fishy cookies. Fun & messy!She was really excited about the presents and kept saying "Oh thank you. More present!"
The kids watching Kinsey's slideshow.
So there you go. My sweet little girl is now TWO! She's so much fun. Totally my best little buddy. We love doing everything together. Love her to pieces!!

Six Years Later

Wow, six years! Have we really been married that long? Sometimes it seems like only yesterday that we were there. And yet, I can look back at all the amazing things we've done together these last years and it seems like it's always been US. I'm so glad I have you to go through this journey with. I wouldn't want to do all life's ups and downs with anyone else. You're my absolute best friend and I feel so blessed to be able to say that. You're the best daddy Kinsey could ever, ever ask for. She adores you as I do. Love you forever and ever!

Six years down - Eternity to go!!!

My New Nephew - Carson Nate

My sister Jenn had a beautiful baby BOY yesterday! We're all so excited to finally add another boy to our family. Parker was way out numbered. Carson Nate arrived at 3:10am on Friday 27 Aug 2010 (on his Mommy & Daddy's 11th wedding anniversary) weighing 7lbs 7oz with a lot of black hair like his sisters Jayda and Danyca. We love him to pieces already!

I can see clearly now...

....the rain is gone. I can see all obstacles in my way!

Ya, I can totally see! I'm loving this no contacts or glasses thing! The whole reason I got the lasik eye surgery is cuz I could no longer wear contacts. I'd try wearing them for a few hours here and there and then my eyes would be so sore that I'd have to wear glasses for the next 3 days. And oh how I hate wearing glasses. So annoying at the beach swimming or if you want to wear sunglasses or any sort of working out. Ugh! Anywho, I've been having problems for over a year now with my contacts and my optometrist suggested I look into the surgery. I was going to have the surgery back in February, but it was one of those weeks when everything went wrong and I had to cancel it. So it was a spur of the moment thing this time. Tim came home from work and I told him I booked the surgery and I was getting it done next week. :) I'm so glad I did it!

I saw 20/20
the first two days after the surgery then things started to go kinda blurry. I was worried. But I had another appointment up in Calgary for a follow-up as my one eye was a bit inflamed, and they told me the blurriness was swelling that was causing halos around lights, computers, tv, etc. and it'll all go away! (The inflammation that I didn't even notice was cleared up too.) So tomorrow it'll be 2 weeks and I can sooooooo see! I have been able to see with no halos the last few days. It's amazing to wake up at night to check on Kinsey and be able to see the clock and where I'm going. Love it! And thank goodness I'm not an eye drop junky anymore and I can wear eye makeup again. My eyes feel great.

So if you've been thinking about it.... GO GET IT DONE! I should've done this years ago!! And that's my only complaint. :)

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (Kinsey 23 mths old)

Kinsey LOVES to sing Twinkle Twinkle and she does all day long. She's really into babies right now and likes to sing them to sleep (don't know where she got that idea ;-) ). Love her!

Temple Day!

We went to the temple this weekend to see my cousin Jilly get married. Kinsey loves temple days! She loves to see the temple! It melts my heart! However trying to take a picture at the temple was a different story. She was not having it. She is sick, so I'm blaming it on that. :) But she did love her new princess dress!

I wear my sunglasses....

.....at night! And all day long! I totally got the lasik eye surgery! Yipee! I was a wee bit worried about having the surgery on Friday the 13th. But other than waiting for my surgery for FOUR hours, it went rather well. It totally didn't hurt (lasik doesn't hurt, but if you choose PRK it hurts BAD so I'm told). Well for about one hour after the numbing wore off my eyes felt like I had been slicing onions -- they'd burn and tear, but that's it. The smell of them burning my cornea was probably the worst part of the entire surgery. Ugh! But today I'm impressed! I had my surgery at 4:30pm yesterday and this morning at 8:30 I passed with 20/20 vision in both eyes! But I have the sweet sunglasses that I'm not allowed to take of even at night and I'm not allowed to touch my eyes for a week. And I'm totally an eye drop junky! I have so many different eye drops that I have to do that I'm putting drops in like every 30 minutes. But I can see!!!!

Kalispell's Ducks!

What's a trip to Kalispell if you don't stop and feed the ducks? It's a must on a Sunday afternoon after church with a picnic in the park.
Kinsey's getting brave. She'll let them take the bread right out of her hands now.
Love these 3 girlies!
We wish B and Alan were in this pic!
Someone forgot to tell Kamry that the bread was for the ducks. She thought she'd have a little nibble. :)
Gotta smell the flowers too!
And then Kinsey drove us all home!
