Kamryn's Family Day Project

Kevin was out of town on Kami's family day, so instead of going out for Chinese that night, I decided to go to the store and pick up the great American meal fixings for dinner; burgers and fries. Matthew needed a pin cushion and needles for his family applied science class aka home ec (can you believe he'll probably be able to sew better than his mom) so I went to the Walmart Superstore to get everything all at once. While there in the sewing aisle, we spotted Little Mermaid fleece. Kamryn still loves the Little Mermaid, even had on her Little Mermaid tshirt that day, so I decided to buy some and make her a blanket. It would be our afternoon project. It's been years since I've made one, but since it's no-sew, I figured I could do it. We spent the afternoon watching the Little Mermaid with the fleece on the family room floor while I cut the little strips. I just hope she doesn't think it's okay to take scissors to it again or any other blanket for that matter.

Two Years Ago Today

Kamryn was handed to her mommy, held by her daddy, fed cherrios by her brothers . . . all for the first time and our family became complete.

Kamryn meets Santa

Today we went to a Christmas party hosted by our friends in the Fox Valley FCC group. We all had such a great time. Santa even came to the party, and it was the first time that Kamryn actually sat on his lap! Last year she was too afraid. She still seemed a little reserved, but she is really getting the idea of Santa this year. She is even singing a few lines of Jingle Bells.

Our friend Julie brought these great crafts today for the kids to do. They decorated little Chinese lanterns with modge podge and glitter. Even the boys enjoyed doing the craft. As soon as we came home from the party, Brendan put his on the tree. Kamryn was right behind him in doing the same thing. Do you see them?

Our first snow!

We got that first snow of the season so Kamryn and I bundled up to shovel the driveway Wednesday morning. She LOVES playing in the snow. I was busy shoveling, looked over at her, and there she was laying in the driving making snow angels. How does she remember doing that last winter? Of course I didn't have her snow suit on because I didn't have one for her yet . . . but now we have pink snow pants for her! Good thing because it's snowing again tonight!
