What a trooper...

Today has been super busy! I didn't get started as early as I thought we should, but it all worked on in the end. Kenzee was snuggly this morning and I go to enjoy her loveyness.

The party was a hit, the video was great! Granny was suprised, so that was great.

Tomorrow starts early so I am trying to wrap up the day.

No fun pics uploaded yet but I will ge to them!

Just a few minutes left...

Nope I haven't forgotten, but it has been a super busy day! Quick recap so I can get to bed before tomorrow.

2nd to last day to pick kaleb up from school
Meeting - secret project
Festival of the Arts
Complete prep work to make tomorrow run smoothly

So that is the quick version of my day.

Kenzee is so very close to rolling over now. Bathtime has become very tricky!

I just found AMY SEELEY. I really like her music. I can't wait to find some more. If you have any good bands or artists I need to check out leave me some names - I am always looking for something new to listen to!

So I'm not getting in bed before tomorrow.

Spring in Oklahoma...

I took some pictures of the sky tonight. This was after Brian groaned at me for climbing on the arms of our outside chairs. I need to upload them and then I will get them posted. It was very pretty! I can't wait to get some more vegetation planted in our yard, hopefully some fun stuff in the backyard this summer.

Yesterday I told Kaleb that if we had the boat, and it was lake prepped we would have been at the lake. Today was another one of those days. Until tonight - the wind is blowing so hard the flag pole across the street is bending. So welcome to OK - WHERE THE WIND COMES SWEEPING DOWN THE PLAIN. Not my pictures, but WOW!

Nothing out of the ordinary today.

I love my baby!

Happy Administrative Professional Day!

Just a quick recap of our day...

Work, out to lunch (a first for us!), took Kaleb to the doctor (a first - the nurses who have treated me for ages were so happy!), and then Kenzee and Brian hung out for 3 hours while I ran out to do some errands (another first!). As you can see today we ventured out of our "norm" and it was fun!

The rest of the week is going to be busy! The FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS is going on and I would love to take Kenzee, well and to go sample the food. Saturday is going to be a day hanging out with extended family (more to come on that later), and Sunday is the OKC MARATHON.

I hope to get to work with my camera a bit this weekend and hopefully learn some new (learn how to shoot in manual) settings. I also need to work on my photo editing skills!

So I will leave just a cute random Kenzee pic:


I have been adding some links to my post, however, they don't show up... So, you might have to hover over some words if you think there might be a link!

One of my favorite days - April 21st

April 21st is not one of my favorite days, but when flower start blooming in my very own yard - that is one of my favorite days!

I neglected to blog yesterday, and even had some words in mind. I don't know what happened...

So along with the blooming flowers, Kenzee growing like an overtaking weed,

today also makes me feel close to my age - almost 31. I'm going to blame it on Kaleb. I have been able to put my head in the sand and ignore the fact that he has turned 16. How have I been able to do that? Since the laws have changed over the past 15 years he wasn't able to just run out and get his license the day he turned 16. Instead he has had to follow the new rules, so that has allowed me to be oblivious to the time passing over the past few weeks. So you probably think he has gotten his driver's license today - nope... We drove his car to Best Buy to have the system installed. He really is a 16 year old male. He isn't a baby anymore, instead I have my baby

right here with me laying on the couch covered up by her very favorite blanket.

Yep, my birthday is approaching quickly - it is inevitable.

Don't forget to check out many more pictures.

My Attempt to Revive...

So as the title suggests this is my attempt to revive our blog. I'm not sure how many followers we have since I have been so lax in updating, but I think it is kind of like the saying, "Build it and they will come". So here it is...

If you ask what has me so motivated to liven up our blog check
this out... Wow! What an awesome writer, photographer, and just all around creative person. I wish creativity came to me so easily. I have to make myself think and be creative.

It really is ironic that I came across matt liz and madeline's blog when I did. Brian and I were talking just the other day about "what if". (Yeah, I know not something you want to talk about on a daily basis.) I think the conversation was brought on by the death of a wonderful friend Mindy and her relationship with her hubby, Rocky. They were true solemates - you know the kind of relationship every young couple wants to have. They were the very best of friends, they knew each other, but still seemed to always want to know more about the other. They were the couple who could sit up all night long and just talk to each other, and the even cooler thing is that is what they did. Mindy was such an inspiration to so many people. She was a definite God fearing woman, and so many of us can learn so much.

So with all of that being said I am going to try to do a few things:
- more photos of our daily "stuff"
- more written encounters just so Kenzee can look back and she will know her hisotry

...and we do have life insurance now...
