Kennedy's school sing-a-long. You can see Kennedy in the middle there with a striped sweater dress. She had a great time!!!

Holiday Baking!!!
Kennedy dipping preztels and putting sprinkles on them.
Carter trying to figure out how to get to the pretzels!

Kennedy on another day making cookies...

Kennedy posing in her apron. She touched the butter and her hands were yucky. I told her I would get a paper towel and wipe them off. She said, "I'll just wipe them on your apron." I told her to wipe them on hers and she said no, she didn't want to get her apron dirty. wow.

Snow day!!!
As I am sure you heard, a couple of weeks ago we had a bunch of snow. Kennedy was so excited....Carter was not. :)

It was too cold for Carter to crawl around the snow so we put him on his motorcycle (Nona and Papa got for him for Christmas) and left him in the garage. Not happy!!
Kennedy doing a snow angel.

Kennedy checking out the snow...


Carter, politely, saying he wants to go inside!

As you saw earlier, Kennedy got a bunch of princess stuff. One of her friends got her this card that played a song. Here she is dancing and sporting (I think)everything she got!

Mommy and Daddy got Kennedy a bike for her birthday. Here she is demonstrating her skills!!

The next morning we put together Nona and Papas gift which was the easel and desk. Kennedy had to put her stuff away only for little brother to throw the markers everywhere...so the fun begins!
Both Aunt Katies got Kennedy dress up stuff. Katie Compton got her the dress and Katie Bell got her the shoes and the jewelry. What a princess!!!


Kennedy's 3rd Birthday!!!
We had quite the party for Kennedy's birthday. Many of her friends from school and most of our family were able to come to the party! It was a circus them, of course! We had a clown who did balloon animals, a face painter and pin the nose on the clown. We had it at the house and our yard was perfect for 15 small kids to run and play.

Katie Bell, Nona and I made the cake. Can you believe it?!
Kennedy the clown with her crown balloon hat!

The little clown watching the other kids get a balloon.

Patticake the clown with Kennedy!

Halloween 2009
Apparently I can't figure out how to add the picture in order. Sorry.

Kennedy and Carter riding in style while we go trick-or-treating. They lasted 6-7 houses and after everyone gave Kennedy (while still standing at the door) she said, "I wanna get some more candy!"
2 little stinkers!!!

Someday Carter will hurt me for putting him in this costume...right now he is SO cute! :)
Of course, a clown. Kennedy played the party very well!

Carter, Kennedy and Porter checking out the toys.
Nona and Papa got Carter a wagon. As you can see, he needed a little help staying in it. Thanks Uncle Jim!


Carter had a great time at his birthday party. Here are a few pictures.

Here is Carter playing with the helicopter Cousin Porter got him.

If that doesn't look like his Daddy, I don't know what does.
In the middle of the cut.....
Final Product. So Handsome!!!!

Carter had his first haircut on Thursday. We had to trim it up quite a bit. The back was starting to curl so we had to cut that off. Maybe it will all start growing curly! :) I don't know if Daddy would appreciate that! Sorry for the blurring pictures.

After 2 1/2 years injury free, Kennedy had her first trip to the ER today. She fell off a bar stool while eating breakfast and broke her elbow, cracked it. She is in a soft cast today, but we will meet with the orthopedist next week to see how things are going. She will be in some kindof cast for 4-6 weeks. Here are a few very sad pictures. :)

Pumpkin Patch Time!!!
Kennedy and Carter with our friend Higgins in the wagon. I think Kennedy and Carter are wrestling.
2 cute little pumpkins!
We went through a corn maze. A little muddy, but Kennedy had a great time!
Carter enjoying his snacks and the wagon ride.

There was a corn pit and Kennedy was raking the corn.

They had a really large chair that the kids loved.

The whole crew.

Kennedy had an open dance class and Carter and I went to watch. Kennedy is the second from the right with all pink on. They are doing the hokey pokey. Clearly we need to work on right and left. :)

Carter is crawling!!! It has been a little over a week since he started and we are wishing he would just stay still now!! :) Here is a little preview. You can hear in the background big sis chatting away! That isn't new. :)

First Day of School!!!!!!
Kennedy is going to preschool 2 days a week. She loves it already and today was only her second day.

At school with her backpack.
Standard first day of school pictures!


Finally it has happened! From the moment I had a girl I have waited for the dance classes to begin and they are here! Here is Kennedy in her tap shoes (don't worry she has a skirt so her underwear doesn't show in class like in the picture!). And the second is of her in another outfit. Not that we were really worried, but she loves it so much! I'm so proud!!!!

Carter clapping!
video
Just the beginning of the torture.....



I asked Kennedy to talk to Carter and she wrapped him up in the blanket. Judging by the last picture, Carter is not amused. Eventually she will be sorry she picked on him!

It is official. We have the next american idol living at my house. :) Yes, that is a blond curly wig we had from halloween years ago.

For our anniversary, Tony took me on a hot air balloon ride! It was very romantic and very cool. We landed in the middle of the street in a neighborhood, planned thankfully, but very exciting!
