A little bit on the chilly side

This is the message I got from Dustin this morning...
The doors were frozen shut on the 4-Runner we rented. We had to sit in the car while it warmed up for like 20 minutes this morning.
He said the high was like 8 degrees today.

I miss him a ton but I am sure glad I am here in AZ!

Decorating our tree

Decorating was lots of fun this year because Kenlie could really be hands on and help with the tree. We did lose a couple of the balls but it was so much fun to watch her get excited about being able to put the balls on herself!
Here is a pic of some of the balls Kenlie put on the tree. We tried to remind her to space them out. At one time she had like 10 balls right on top of each other.

Yummy Biscuits

Kenlie loves to help out whenever I let her and I decided she could help make some biscuits with me the other night. I gave her some extra dough and that just made her night.
Here is her biscuit!

Richins Christmas Party

Kenlie was very afraid of Santa this year. Even though she was bawling I still think this picture is very cute.

Kenlie had a blast playing with her cousins in the back yard.

Kenlie is going to be a trend setter I guess, her necklace is made of a rubber snake she loved and was very protective over.

Fun at the Park

Pearly Whites

Kenlie had her first dental appointment today. I was pretty anxious about it all because dental work just makes me nervous even though I have an awesome dentist. So we are sitting there in the lobby and Kenlie is having a blast with all the toys. I hear a kid screaming in the back and I start to panic. I was about ready to walk out the door I was getting so nervous. Kenlie was off in her own world though so it obviously didn't bother her.

So we got called back... I didn't get any pics at the office because she was a little shy about them wanting to count her teeth and stuff. They let her wear some really cute Dora sunglasses while they looked at her teeth which she loved! They ended up having me sit on the chair and then Kenlie sat on my lap. She did great though once she got comfortable with them. They counted her teeth and polished them real nice. The dentist came in and did his thing and then Kenlie got a new toothbrush and a bunch of other goodies. They also gave her a fish with her name on it to put in for a drawing since she didn't have any cavities.

Trick or Treat

Grandpa had a little photo shoot at the house before we went out trick or treating. Stay tuned for those pics to come...

Sorry some of these pics are blurry.

Garage Sale Bargain

So I was in search for a dresser for Branson. I was getting frustrated after so many garage sales with "okay dressers" but way too pricey for a dresser that needed help. They were all $75+. Way too much for me if I am buying used. So we kept driving and we finally found a garage sale that had garage sale prices. I would have been happy to spend $35-$40. So we found a 5 drawer real wood dresser for $10. I was so excited!

We came home and Kenlie was excited to help Daddy clean it up a little.

3 year check up

Kenlie had her 3 year check up this week and she did awesome. She is doing great!
Her pediatrician had her get some blood work just to make sure she is not anemic or anything. I thought they were gonna prick her finger but they actually wanted to draw blood.
So I am sitting in the chair kind of nervous about whats going to happen and Kenlie is sitting on my lap. She actually did quite well, I was shocked. The lady had some pictures of beaches on the wall and while she was drawing the blood she was telling the lady how she went to the beach with Grandpa and Grandma. It was so sweet. She got two stickers afterward and the lady kept commenting on how calm she was.

Can I just Scream????

Oh my goodness... today has not been the best day. I woke up sick (couldn't take a pill in time). So after getting sick I got Kenlie and I breakfast. She has been on something today so about noon I finally decided it was time for a nap. I was the one who kept falling asleep though and she was wide awake. So I move my hand and feel something I shouldn't have. So then I realize what she has been doing.....

I had a small tear in my body pillow I made and she was just pulling batting out. Oh my gosh I just cant catch a break today. I just felt like screaming.... but no I didn't she went straight to her room instead. I think she knows she is in trouble. Ugh I need a spa day!

Books = Houses

I remember growing up we used to spend hours and hour playing with our barbies. We'd take all of our books and make houses for our barbies to live in. It was so much fun. Well the other day I caught Kenlie building houses with her books. I was so excited because that's what I did when I was little. So today while Dustin and I were watching Conference she pulled her books out and started to build houses. I think its so much fun to watch her play and use her imagination.

Keeping Ivy Busy

Ashley was trying to help me with CVS and Walgreen's deals and Ivy played with some of Kenlie's old baby toys. She is such a sweetie.

Long lost puppy...

Dustin helped me get the baby clothes out of the garage so I could started organizing the clothes. When we put the clothes away before we just threw the clothes in trash bags. I am so excited I was able to get some bins so I can actually store their clothes organized and neatly. While I was going through bags and bags of clothes I came upon this bag that I thought was more clothes. I ripped it open and I found my long lost puppy. Kenlie was so excited when I pulled him out of the bag her eyes got real big and she said, doggy for me mommy!!! She has not let him out of her sight since.

Surprise, AZ

On Sunday we drove down to Surprise to see one of my best friends and her family. She flew in from Virginia and her Mom had a get together for them. It was so nice to catch up with everyone and to let our kids play together.

Here is Jennifer and I.

What a big girl!

I was picking up in the kitchen and Kenlie said mom my room is messy. I need help to clean it, we clean it every night together. I told Kenlie I could help her after I was done picking up the kitchen. So I finished up and came to her room and I found her picking up the toys in her room. She said, Mom I am cleaning my room all by myself! She was so proud of herself and wanted to show her room off.
