Happy Birthday to My Baby!

My biggest baby, that is! Today is Brian's 32nd birthday! Kaelyn and I surprised him with a red velvet cake because that's one of his favorites! We gave him a few gifts and are taking him fishing this weekend in his biggest early gift... his boat that he is loving!
Happy Birthday Honey! We love you so much! :)

Okay, trying to pick back up where I left off...

Princess Belle and Cinderella were up at Chick-fil-a last night and I had been planning on taking Kaelyn after work. She was sooo excited about it. We got there about 5-10 minutes before they arrived and wow, the restaurant was already packed and there was no place to sit. I decided to go ahead and get Kae her kids meal as I knew it was going to get more crowded and just told her we would eat it at home. The whole thing was chaotic and we seemed to wait in line forever, but it was worth it. Cinderella wasn't that great to me so I tried to get Kaelyn to come on home after Belle, but she was set on Cinderella too, so we waited in yet another line. lol It really made her day though... she was so excited and will be talking about this for a few days to come. She loves looking at the pictures of her and the princesses! :)
The last picture is of my little princess experimenting with eyeshadow. :)

Happy Easter!

I am finally getting around to this post. Seems like we had such a BUSY weekend! We started the weekend off right with a boat ride out on Lake Bowen. :) It was Skyler's first time on the boat and she wasn't ready to go home. She loved it!Then we ran home to change for an Easter EGGstravaganza at Legacy Outreach (My Aunt and Uncle's church) Kaelyn had a blast. They had a really neat setup with 6 different stations and as you went to each one they were telling the story of Easter. Some of the stuff may have been a little over her head, but she was enjoying herself. Afterwards they had a huge egg hunt, snow cones, and bounce houses everywhere so there was lots of fun to be had! Skyler racked up on the eggs and even shared some with her little sis. ;) We came home and Kae and I crashed...she had missed her nap with all the craziness! Sunday we went to church with my aunt and uncle and had Easter lunch with them afterwards. The girls looked so cute in their dresses. The lunch was delicious and Kae & Brian helped me make Easter basket cupcakes! We had a wonderful weekend and are so grateful for our RISEN Savior! Kaelyn reminded us all of the true meaning of Easter as she sang...Mighty to Save all weekend! It's one of her favorites so I am including a video of her singing it. :) Just in case you don't know the words, here is what she is saying...
Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is mighty to save, He is mighty to save
Forever, Author of salvation
He rose and conquered the grave, Jesus conquered the grave.

More Easter Fun

Kaelyn had an Easter party and egg hunt at school today. I decided to sit this one out since they did it around lunch and I wouldn't be able to get off work early to take her home afterwards. She isn't too happy when I come and have to leave. Below are a few pics of the gift she gave her friends for Easter. She was soooo excited to give them out! :-) She had fun with hers too as you can see! :)

1st Egg Hunt ~2009

Yesterday we went to Kae's 1st egg hunt of the season. It was at the church that provides her daycare/school. They are all so wonderful! We had a great time and several of our friends were there! They split them in different age groups and off we went. At first Kaelyn really didn't get it. lol She would point and say, "There's a pink one!" but didn't know she should pick it up. So we prompted her and told her there was candy in them so that was a huge motivation. haha
Before we knew it she was racking up! After the hunt, they provided the kids with a snack and a juice box. They did a great job and everyone had a good time. :) I took lots of pics, but here are a few of my favorites...

First Boat Ride...

...on the new boat! We went out to Lake Bowen yesterday to take the boat out for it's first ride. Brian had to work until noon and we had 2 birthday parties last night so we only had a small window of opportunity. We decided not to fish, but just to ride. It took longer than I was thinking to get everything set and going, but hey, it was our first time so I guess it was to be expected. There is a lot to this boating thing. haha Kaelyn wasn't too sure about going fast and would bury her face into me. Once we slowed it down she got comfy and had a few snacks with Daddy. :)
Here are a couple shots from our adventure!

Brian's New Boat

Well, Brian has waited a loooong time to get a bass boat, and it's finally here! I am so excited for him! The boat is not brand new, but new to us and we love it! He had been looking at this one for a few weeks and while Kae and I were in MI he got the ball rolling with it. On April 1st he went to pick it up, no joke. ;) He got an awesome deal. We are so excited to take it out on the water. Kaelyn just thinks it's the greatest thing ever and her new play toy. hehe Below are a couple of my proud hubby! You deserve it! ~Love you!

Michigan Trip

Kae and I just got back from a last minute trip to Michigan. There were some family things going on that I needed to be there for so Thursday we finalized plans to fly out Friday morning. My Grandma (Dad's Mom) was flying up with us. She was actually supposed to fly up earlier in the week, but had missed her flight. She was glad to have help, as she has a few physical limitations and has not flown since the 70's! Man, how things in the airports have changed since then. ;)
We left our house at 3:15 am Friday morning to head to Charlotte for our 6am flight. Everything went well and there were lots of extra seats on our flights so that was nice. :-) I was hoping little Kae would take a little snoozer at some point between 3am and when we arrived to my parents around 10am, but Noooope! Too Excited, she couldn't do it. haha My parents picked us up and we met my brother for lunch. Kaelyn was excited to see her Uncle T.C. He had to head back to work and we headed to Mom and Dad's. When we got there I was exhausted! I dozed off in the chair and finally decided I'd go lie down for a few. I was going to take Kae with me but of course Pop said she could stay and play with him. haha I knew, but he did not know, that later she would have horns coming from her head. haha She got a tad bit cranky. She was up from 3am until 7pm that night. Craziness! It actually took her pretty much the whole trip to catch up on her sleep.
Some great things came out of this trip and I felt fortunate to be there for them. Brian had to stay behind to run his branch, but I filled him in on everything. ;) Dad got to baptize his own mother, who just recently gave her life to the Lord! We got to celebrate Dad's birthday, on the 28th! Happy Birthday Dad! And we just got to enjoy time with family. It was great! Dad made Kaelyn a fan of his leaf blower. lol She looooved that thing! She would carry it around and "blow" you and then blow herself. Haha It was too funny. Dad also kept Kae all by himself while Mom and I went to a women's meeting. He even gave her a bath! We were proud. :)
Tuesday we traveled to Indiana to be in the area for our flight out of South Bend. There is a little family entertainment center we stopped at to bowl and play games. The funniest thing happened here... So Kaelyn wanted to push the bowling ball down the lane so I decide to sacrifice one of my turns so she can do this. I go up with her and give the ball a little extra push since I know it will take forever to get down there if she does it on her own. Kae was wearing her rain boots so she had pretty good traction... you guessed it... She takes off down the lane after the ball! I, of course, go after her with my slick ol' bowling shoes and as soon as I cross the line, BUST MY BUTT! lol But I did catch her. hehe I am so thankful it was a Tuesday afternoon and not many people were in there to see and my mom didn't think to whip out her camera, whew! It was pretty funny. Afterwards we had an early dinner at Famous Dave's BBQ. It was yummy! Then off to the airport and we didn't get back to our house until around 1am. Oh how I dreaded getting up for work the next day. I managed, and it was all worth it. :) Click HERE to see more pictures from our trip.
