Snow Day!

Today we got about 6-8 inches of snow so of course we had to get out in it. After clearing the driveway and front walk we made a snowman. It was a lot of fun! Corbin our neighbor and Ryton our little nephew enjoyed the afternoon with us.

Mykenna's 5th Birthday!

I can't believe she is 5 years old. You are always told that time will fly by with your kids, but I am starting to realize just how fast it really does. The day of her birthday we celebrated just with our little family. She picked out her cupcakes and we enjoyed watching her open her gifts from us. I think the dress up clothes were the hit, especially the Hanna Montana wig. (Don't we love after Halloween clearance) She received some money from her Grandma Linda so we took her to Walmart to pick out a gift. She asked to wear the wig and we didn't see any reason to say no. Boy you should have seen some of the looks we got at the store. She was so excited to wear it, it didn't even matter. Let kids be kids, right...

We had plans to celebrate with extended family, but the weekend got a little crazy so we will celebrate up in Sun Valley when we go to visit Uncle Ken.

With some birthday money she picked out a Hanna Montana makeup kit. So as soon as we got home she was putting it all on. Dad was thrilled with the purchase... :)

It was so cute...Mykenna thought as soon as she turned 5 she would be able to go to Kindergarten. So she has been constantly asking, "Who is my teacher and when do I get to go?" It was so hard to try and explain that she still had until the end of August before she would actually be able to go. I am glad she is excited for school.

Mykenna Happy Birthday! We love you so much! You brighten our home with your beautiful smile and sweetness!

What a Helper!

Kenna is such a little helper. I had a load of laundry on the couch today and when I returned from putting Cael down for his nap this is what I found her doing. I didn't even have to ask. She has been so cute lately by asking me "Mom, what can I do to help." Tonight though when asked this question I replied, "Could you go clean your room?" She said, "No, what can I do out here?" She struggles a little with her own room. That's ok. I will take the help whenever and wherever I can get it. Thanks cutie!
