Blue Dog

I was getting Kaitlin ready for school last week and she requested to pick out her own outfit! She told me Blue Dog and then picked matching shorts! Then she picked her blue bow and we were on our way to school! She was sooooo proud of herself and showed everyone at school her outfit!


When we got home Kaitlin picked her own snack!!!


Then picked her own movie!!!


Cinderella of course!!! She loves the  all curtseying and claps at the wedding scene every time! Kory is starting to get a little worried!


Then working the DVD player all by herself!! Kory is so proud !

She can’t get enough hide and seek fun!!!


Happy girl on the big bed!!


Lounging on our bed before dinner!!

Excuse Me!!

Kaitlin has taken up a very rude … but somewhat funny habit.  She can burp … on purpose …


She is a 2 year old little princess …


with the sense of humor of  a 12 year old boy …


Excuse me!!!!


At least she covers her mouth!!! We’re trying to ignore these outbursts as they happen. 

I realize this isn’t the most award-winning post but I have always tried to keep everyone up-to-date on her latest habits & developments.  She’s too cute to be mad at for long!

Orange for Pat Summitt

I grew up in Knoxville and have been a VOL fan my entire life. Pat Summitt has been a coach at Tennessee my entire life!!!  When Tennessee built our brand new basketball arena they named the floor “ The Summitt” in her honor! Coach Summitt IS Tennessee Basketball!!

She is an amazing woman and a phenomenal coach! Knoxville encouraged people to wear orange today in support of  Coach Summitt and even though we are a thousand miles away we wear orange for her !!!


If you have no idea what I am talking about her is a wonderful article about this tragic situation!!!

Go Big Orange!!

Kaitlin is on the go and keeping me very busy but I love this smile!!


Our new favorite thing hiding with all the stuffed animals!


Where is Kaitlin???

1st day of school

I was a worried how Kaitlin would do today after a rough Open House experience!! She had a wonderful day and everyone at school raved about how great she did and made me feel so much better! There were some tears but overall she had an amazing day!IMG_9403

She walked right in to school this morning with her backpack on and carrying her lunchbox and walked right to her room like she had done it a million times!


Kaitlin ready to go with all her gear!


This is Kaitlin’s 1st year napping on a mat so I was convinced she would be running around the room when she was suppose to be napping. To my surprise, she had no problems laying on her mat still and quiet!! She did lose her bow during nap time and got very upset! Once they fixed her hair she settled back down and was back on her mat!


We are so thankful for a great 1st day of school!!!

Daddy’s Little Sunshine

Kaitlin and Kory are BIG Buddies and she is so excited when he comes home from work! She will wait at the door for him when she hears the garage open… it is quite a welcome home everyday!


Brushing up on her football knowledge and upcoming season just like her daddy!


This is Kaitlin’s attempt at curtsying! She has been watching Alice in Wonderland …. it is hard to curtsey in shorts but she is giving it her best shot! She is a girl raised in the south!


Kory and Kaitlin playing video games. Her controller doesn’t work but she still is having a blast!


Working on strategy, defense and recruiting!!


She sure loves her Daddy and he is crazy about her as well!!!!

Open House 2011

Today was Open House for Mother’s Day Out.  Kaitlin knew it was going to be a long day so she started off with a “nutritious” breakfast!


We arrived at school and she was so excited to be there!  I could barely contain her.



However, this picture pretty much sums up the day …


I’m sure you’re thinking that everything went great since she’s so happy.  This picture accurately represents our morning because the Open House was more like Kaitlin’s hair – a big hot mess!


Kaitlin found out Ms. Erika wouldn’t be her teacher this year and there would be a new teacher, new room, & some new friends.  She was a little bit anxious to say the least.  So, after that wonderful experience, we came home and Kaitlin took some time on the couch to contemplate the new school year … she seems thrilled …


After a while, things got back to normal around our house.


It’s a good thing she’s such a cutie!

Daisy Days

We finally go some much needed rain yesterday and we are so thankful!! We had two storms come thru NWA and it cooled things off so nicely!


Kaitlin played outside last night in 80 degree weather and I did not think she would ever come inside. She was so thrilled to be reunited with the outdoors. It is suppose to be in the low 90’s all week so we will be taking advantage of the “cooler weather”!


Poor Kaitlin has been stuck inside with triple digit temperatures and it has been too hot for this little girl!


We are ready for a lot of outdoor activities!!

Summer Day

The past two days have been over 110 degrees real temperature at our house…. new records for NWA!! We are ready for the heat to break but here is Kaitlin looking cute even if it is HOT outside!


We are SO thankful for our air conditioning and have been playing inside coloring and trying to keep Kaitlin entertained!


Kory LOVES the heat and never ever complains about it being too hot and he admitted yesterday that it was a little too hot for him!
