A College Graduate and A Goodbye

 In tribute to this gorgeous girl!
 Our last day in Utah, also happened to be the day that this gorgeous girl graduated college, as a nutrition major. Yes, she, along with my dad will give me instruction on how to eat for the rest of my life! 

 It really was a beautiful day, besides the leaving part (where we both cried). Kristen got this, oh so fantistical dress! I love it! We had a BBQ afterwards of course, and I took pictures. (And, I love when I realize, after the fact, that I had the wrong settings on! Urg. But, Kristen is beautiful, so needless to say, it didn't matter.)
 After all the fun, we had to say our goodbyes. :(
Please ignore the ugly traveling outfit, why I didn't just keep on my dress from graduation for pictures, is beyond me!

Congrats to my most wonderful twin! Love you! XOXOxoxo

Michigan and IPhone Pics

              Finally bought a new charger, only cost me an arm and a leg, but hey, who needs em?! So yes, we are in Wyoming, Michigan?! Why did they name it that? As if all these states over here don't just jumble together anyways. Well, I don't know quite how I feel about it yet. Ok, I'm super homesick, and so is KenLea. We skype with my parents just about every night, and KenLea will be so happy for the first few minutes; kissing and hugging the phone, then she'll realize that she can't actually touch them, so she'll start crying really hard and literally push me to the door, telling me "lets go home!" It's so sad! It makes us all cry. But, I've got my little family with me, so I know I'll make it through.
              I know everyone says it's good to get out and live on your own, and maybe so, but I don't think there is anything wrong with wanting to be home, near family. I have three sets of grandparents, and my mothers parents have lived twenty-five minutes away since I was five. I loved being so close to them. I wish that my other grandparents weren't so far away. I love them all dearly, which is why it is important to me to have my children be close to family. Now, obviously I will follow my husband to where we need to be, but of course if we have the choice, near family will win!
               Now, onto other things, no need to dwell on my home-sickness. Michigan is beautiful, very green and lots of trees. Weird not seeing any mountains though. We live in a little one bed-room apartment. We thankfully have a washer and dryer, other wise I'd go insane! Only crappy part is; no microwave. I don't cook in the microwave, but it makes things easier for left overs, and no toaster, so broiler it is. We also live on the third floor which is awesome with a baby and twenty bags of groceries, but yah for sexy calves!
               The trip was actually not too bad. Long as "Gone With the Wind," but a smooth, no traffic drive. And KenLea was an absolute angel! She slept well, and rarely cried. We only stopped at Braidons brothers Colbys house in Colorado Springs, for about three hours, and at a little town park for like fourty five minutes the whole way out, and mind you it took us thirty hours to get here! Seriously, I was so worried KenLea would be fussing and crying the whole way, but she was just so sweet and content, I was so grateful!
                 KenLea really has been so good, she has her moments, but she is mommy's little buddy. She started teething more this weekend, which has made her a bit more cranky, but that's understandable. She is amazing still. Over the past three weeks she's really nailed down where the majority of her body parts are. (She was pretty good prior to that, but she'd get them mixed up every once and a while.) She likes to tell everyone that she is one, by putting up her finger when asked "how old are you?" She loves, loves, LOVES to dance! She is always boppin her head in the car, or dancin around the living room. She knows how to use an Ipad, just about as good as I can. Ha! She acts like a two year old, seriously; she throws fits like one. She fits pretty good in her 18 month clothes, and her size 4 shoes are going to be too small here pretty soon. Ugh!
As you can see, they are a little bit too big still.
Her hair is out of control!
Probably one of the funniest pictures ever!
She's just adorable! I love her so much, and don't know what I'd do without her!
She's always given awesome hugs, but now she gives kisses all the time too!
"Look more happy when Momma's givin you kisses!"
Ah this face! ha

The End

A little suh'em

Here is a little somethin to fill in my blogging gap. See, my laptops charger got all bent up, due to a wee little one, so I don't have a working laptop that has my pics and all that jazz on it, so here is a little movie so you can see a little of what we've been up to.
(I don't know what the heck the videos are that pop up afterwards. I even changed the category from "people" to "animals." ugh! Stupid youtube. I don't care to see some girl shakin her toosh! Man, the media sure knows how to ruin things!)

This week is absolute craziness, and my "emotions chart" is like a roller-coaster! Michigan is coming up so quickly, its making me sick. I'm excited to go, but I'm a bit of a "home-body," so I'm really nervous, and already feeling homesick just thinking about being gone for so long. I'm going to miss my family terribly! I love them all so much! And they are all going to have major KenLea with-drawls. But, I've always wanted to go experience living somewhere completely different, so this little move for only 3 1/2 months is perfect. All in all, this summer will be a great adventure. I am super excited about being so close to my grandma, she's only going to be 4 hours away! Which will be so fantastic! I also have a cousin who is 2 hours away, so I have some family out there. Yah! As of lately, besides the packing, we've been going to track meets, the park, Grandma Davis', up north, and everywhere else. I finally got KenLea a new car seat, it's been way over due, with her feetsies hanging out the end for quiet some time now.
It was so funny, while KenLea was napping, I pulled her new car seat out of the box and just had it sitting on the floor. When she woke up, I put her down to play. All of a sudden I look over and she had grabbed her goldfish crackers, put some in the cup holders, took a seat in the chair and just chilled, eatin her crackers.


 We also have been working on KenLea's room. It definitely turned out to be a bigger project then I thought. Ugh. But it's turning out cute. Still need a good idea for a screen to put in between her crib and the beds. I still have a lot to do, but I'll get there.

Also, I got myself an Iphone! It's awesome! So, of course I got instagram, which is fantasic!

Crazy morning hair!

Smiles for Dad

Constant kisses from Mom
We also went to Kristen and Wade-O's track meet. Bitter sweet day. It was the last time I'll see her run in a meet, but this also means baby making time! Come on for another cousin for KenLea. :)
Givin Aunt Krissy huggs!

It was a bit nippy out, thus the ear muffs.
This past weekend, we went to Beaver to Grandma Davis before we leave for the summer. It was a perfect day, so we spent most of it outside.
 I'll be honest; we "red-neck" it a lot at our house. Sometimes, no pants is just better.
Sorry bout the forever long post, but I tend to wait too long in between posts, which in turn means for longer posts.
But hope all you have a fantastic summer, next time I blog, I'll be in Michigan! Ahh! Loves.
