Here is my 1st attempt at video on my IPhone!!! The quality is not great but the subject sure is cute!! Kaitlin was watching cars and names them all!! It was too funny not to share!

First Iphone video… sorry for the quality but it is a cute subject

We saw the Macy’s Justin Beiber commercial so many times this weekend that Kaitlin has her 1st crush!! She squeals every time we see him on TV!! Kory is less than impressed and is worried it is a little early for a crush!!

A few weeks ago Toyland came to Bentonville!! All the vendors bring the newest toys and set up on the square to let all the kids play!! It was wild and crazy and we had the best time!


Kaitlin loved the toy car track!!


And Dora’s Kitchen!! We waited in several lines to see the special dressed up characters ! Kaitlin was so excited to meet them in theory until she was at the front of the line. Then she told them “bye bye” and got away as fast as possible!!


Here was the star of the show the cars from “Cars”! Kaitlin was thrilled and is still talking about the BIG red car!!




We ended a fun night with ice cream!! It was a great Friday night!

Thanksgiving 2011

Thanksgiving was not the weekend we had planned but we made the most of the day!! We have so much to be thankful for and it was nice to celebrate with  our little  family in NWA!! My family had planned to make the long trek to Arkansas but last minute details fell thru and they were unable to make the trip!! We were sad to not be with our families but we can’t wait to see them in a few weeks!!

Thankfully I got a turkey at Honey Baked Ham and I managed to cook ALL of Thanksgiving dinner!! I had never made dressing before but with the assistance of some phone calls it turned out all right!!

We were thankful to have a friend come to share in all the food and we will enjoy leftovers for many many days to come!! There is so much to be thankful for and we need to remember that everyday should be Thanksgiving!

It is hard to believe this is Kaitlin’s 3rd Thanksgiving!!!

It feels like yesterday that we took these pictures of her 1st Thanksgiving!


2010 Thanksgiving—I thought she was so big here!! I am amazed how much she has grown up in a year!


2011—We are so thankful for our little turkey !!!

Week in Review

Kaitlin has been under the weather all week!! Poor thing has just not felt well but thankfully she is sleeping and is improving everyday! We have done a lot of this all week!


It is not easy to get a two and a half year old to sit still much less rest!


Kaitlin calls this her MYPAD!!! Bless her heart!! It has helped her sit still and rest!


Kaitlin is still loving this dress up and put all that food in that tiny purse! She was entertained for hours this week with this magic purse!



Starting to feel a little better!

Our goal for the day is to leave the house!! We are getting a little cabin fever but we are on the mend!!
