A Very Disney Adventure

We spent our vacation at DisneyWorld this year.  We had a great time, but be prepared to walk farther than you ever thought you could.  We were exhausted, but satisfied when we got home.  We had loads of fun.  But personally, I am all princessed out!

Daddy Daughter Dance 2012

Kenyon had a great time with Daddy at the dance. She looked so beautiful, especially with her little wrist corsage. She was very tired by the time she got home, but a good time was had by all!

She looks so grown up! It is hard to believe she is almost five, just seems like yesterday she was a tiny little thing in my arms.

Gone Fishin'

Since Kenyon has been in Pre-K her writing skills have improved dramatically. She doesn't write right to left anymore (she is a lefty), and you can actually tell what the letters are. Here she learns to write "fish".

Father's Day

I know its late, but Amy & I took the girls to paint coffee mugs for Father's Day. Kenyon & Jules had so much fun and the mugs turned out fabulous. I learned I need to be less controlling when it comes to arts and crafts.

The Wedding

Last weekend my cousin Monique married her high school sweetheart, Chris. Kenyon got to be the ring girl while her cousins got to be the flower girls. They all looked like little Victorian bridal attendants.

We had a great time and are very excited to officially welcome Chris into our wild and crazy family.

In Three Short Years.....

We went from this....

To this.

The baby isn't a baby anymore, and the little girl is now taller than I am and entering the 8th grade. Where did the time go?

Jesus is my BFF

Kenyon was baptized on Sunday. We explained that Pastor Tom would sprinkle water on her head and say a prayer. After we clarified that she would not disappear, as if Pastor Tom was putting a spell on her (blame Disney), we told her that meant Jesus would be her BFF. She seemed happy with that. How else do you explain baptism to a four year old?

She did wonderfully, wasn't scared a bit. She was more concerned with showing off her "church necklace" during children's time. We got her a cross with pin cz stones in it. She loves it.

At the end of the service we officially joined the church, with Hank and & me transferring our membership from Baptist and Episcopalian to now Methodist. We wanted to wait until Sara was with us to join as a family. It was special for all of us. We have finally found our spiritual home, it has been a long journey - four years in the making, but we are home.

A special thanks as always to my dear, sweet, Amy for taking pictures and being Kenyon's Godmother. She and Jules are such a blessing to our family. And even though Aunt Erin & Uncle Chip couldn't be with us we know they will serve Kenyon well as Godparents too! My little girl is very lucky to be surrounded by such love.
