Sunday Dinner at Amy's

Last Sunday we got together and had a yummy dinner at Amy's and then we played a game. Meanwhile Kenlie was being a bit onry and finally fell asleep on the couch. She had been asleep for 30 minutes or so when she woke up kind of stumbling along and went straight for Micheal. She curled right up on his lap and let him hold her. Micheal has a new buddy, I think... haha

Jumping off the Diving Board

We went swimming at Amy's a couple days ago and Kenlie was jumping off the diving board with her cousins having so much fun! After a couple jumps with dad she was ready to jump in without dad right there to catch her and then she swam to the side like her cousins were doing just do it all over again.
She is such a big girl, I cant believe it sometimes.

Empanadas to the rescue...

Today was a hard day... nothing would settle in my stomach including bland crackers. I pretty much through up everything today I put in my mouth. I made a dinner that I usually love and when it came time to eat it I couldn't even go near it. Something about chicken isn't smelling right these days. So Dustin and Kenlie enjoyed their dinner and I suddenly felt the urge for empanadas. I couldn't stop talking about them so Dustin told me to order them and he went to pick them up. What a sweetie, I was able to eat them and they actually stayed down! How exciting I finally had food stay in my stomach today and I actually felt good. So I was able to get the dishes done and clean up the counters and stuff. What a great feeling it was to actually clean and not be in clutter. Dustin usually helps out with the cleaning when I feel so bad but he has been working all night for this thing he is doing for work. I am so proud of him he is doing so well at his new job.

So Very Tired

Kenlie and I got to play with Todd and Raegan while the Standages were at a recital today. I haven't been feeling the best today so I was laying down with Todd while Kenlie and Raegan were eating apples at the table. It was quiet for a bit and I saw Kenlie down the hall so I was trying to figure out where Raegan was. I couldn't believe she fell asleep at the table and didn't fall over. What a cutie!

Swim and Play Day

Last week we went to Allison and went swimming with the Brittons, Hess', and the Richins. Kenlie had so much fun and loves to scare me by takeing off her floaties and trying to swim without them.

We sure had a fun day! We all brought subs and it was sure yummy. Then we got all lubed up with suncreen and went swimming.

We had a blast though... here are some pics.

Way to go, KENLIE!

Well I decided its time for Kenlie to be officially sleeping in her bed every night. Monday night was the first night in a while and she did really well. Usually she will come in the middle of the night and sneak in bed with me. I slept awful because I was up every hour or so checking on her making sure she was okay. She slept through the night in her room and then woke up at 8:30AM. For me that is early but we got up and then she wanted to play. I asked her if she slept good and she said, "Yes mommy, in my bed!" It was so sweet.

So I decided I'd like to get her a special bedding set just for her to celebrate this. I glanced around on eBay and didn't like the fabrics I was seeing so Ashley and I went to JoAnn's once again. I bought some fleece fabric for her blanket and then some fabric for fitted sheet.

Kenlie picked Dora fabric and actually pointed it out to me in the store. She was saying, "Mom... Cute Dora." She is such a riot!

I am pretty impressed with myself. It took all day doing things with Kenlie and and then sewing here and there when I could. I sewed a light pink pillow case, Dora fitted sheet for her mattress, and I tied her fleece blanket.

My mom is so awesome she was my inspiration while I worked on this project. Before today I had never attempted a fitted sheet before. She is an amazing seamstress and I'd love to be able to sew like her someday. She is off having a blast in Pennsylvania right now, and I miss her and Dad so much!

Really Good Day

Well today was a really great day and I probably over did it because I finally felt like I could do something. Ashley and I grabbed some yummy lunch at Chick Fil A and then we went to the Joann's Super Store and bought some super soft filling for the Pillows we are going to be making.

I came home and it was SO hot outside. I cleaned my office and the kitchen and then made hamburger pie. I used moms idea of doing it in the electric skillet and it was so nice. It didn't heat up the house and even better I used less dishes. I cleaned up dinner and then cleaned Kenlies room real good. I was in a cleaning frenzy and moved her slide and all her furniture so I could get it vacuumed really good. I was tired and a little worn out after all that but at least I was able to get some stuff done today.

Now the challenge is to keep it up.

Hopefully I continue to have good days so I can keep the house up through this pregnancy.

On the way to the Campout

On our way to the camp out Kenlie got to watch Elmo which she was very excited about.
When we got there we let her play in the truck while we started to set up camp. She had Dustin's house keys and got the tip in the ignition. Good thing she didn't actually have the car keys, she is so smart.

Yep that is her pretending to drive and talk on her cell phone. She must have seen her daddy do that.

Playing at the Water Hole
