Happy Birthday Kennedy

Day one of birthday celebrating started Sunday! On Friday we are headed to see the mouse, or should I say princesses? Disney World here we come...all 6 of us. Leanna and Kennedy have appointments at the Bibbidy Bobbidy Boutique where they will receive a full makeover including a crown! Next we will have lunch at Cinderella's Royal Table! We are staying for the weekend and hope to enjoy one other park as well, it is a toss up between Epcot and Hollywood Studios! Little Kade is covered in a rash from a reaction to MMR shot. He has been very irritable and itchy for the past few days! Rash should go away in the next few days so hopefully he will be all set for Mickey! Here are a few birthday shots to share!

Bad Blogger

I am a very bad blogger! Maybe in a few long years when I have a minute to think I may have time to catch up on all that is going on. For now, I am running crazy, and the kids are driving me there! We have had a very busy summer, Vero Beach, many weekend trips, and a triathlon in between! Here are some pictures! I would say I would post soon, but that would be a stretch!

My First Tri!

On April 10th I finished my first Triathlon! 1 hour 32min! It was a 1/2 mile swim,( in the ocean), a 10 mile bike, and a 4 mile run. It was GREAT! My sweet friend Trisha and I trained together for months and had a BLAST! I am so thankful for her. She is a blessing to my life. We still swim 2 mornings a week and giggle over coffee on our way there and back in the car. Sometimes that giggle is a venting session, but it's still fun! She is that friend that understands what it takes to be a mom and a wife, and sometimes, you just need a good friend to complain to and she is always there to listen and sympathize. She doesn't say its okay when its not, and she lets me be mad when I need to be without trying to fix things! She is my rock and I can't imagine a day without our silly texts back and forth! Enjoy the pictures! The next one is July 31st and Michael has signed up too!!! Uh-OH!!

That's Daddy's!!

When my husband is not home, my daughter so sweetly reminds me how much he helps me! I break out the vacuum cleaner tonight and the precious 2 year old says, "That's Daddy's!"
Just had to share! :)

Run Mommy Run!!!

Mommy's two day getaway included special time with one of my besties, 13.1 miles of running over 4 bridges and on 2 miles of sandy beach! I finished in 2:04 which I was really proud of considering the challenging course! My legs are MUCH more sore after this second 1/2 marathon! It had to be those steep bridges!!! Here is a pre race picture of Trisha and I...we are off to reward ourselves with sushi!!

Leanna and Marshmellow

We are so proud of Leanna and her rabbit Marshmellow! Marshmellow took home a first place ribbon in the Polk County Youth Fair! It was so much fun to go back to the youth fair for a trip down memory lane! I can remember the good old days at Oaks School when we would take a special field trip to see all of the animals and support our friends who where showing them! So meet Marshmellow...the BEST bunny EVER!

I Heart Kade

Sometimes when we least expect it...something so special happens and your life would never be the same without it! That's how I feel about Kade! My little blessing! I never thought that I would have a fourth child, but God knew that my family wouldn't be complete without this little ray of sunshine! He is such a blessing to my life, Out of all of us he is the most easy going!! He is always happy, unless you aren't feeding him fast enough! He is 13 months old now and walking all over the place and getting into everything! He is going to have to learn how to be tough with Kennedy pulling him around like a babydoll! Even when I am having a bad day or life isn't going as I think it should, I can sit back and look in these beautiful blue eyes of his and think about all that God has blessed me with! He is the topper to this cake of a family...all of its complicated layers are made complete by him just being here! XXOO Kade!!

Christmas/New Year Vacation

We had a beautiful Christmas! What a blessing to have our family together and then to be able to take a trip to the mountains! We had a blast on our road trip as "Griswold" inspired as it was! We stopped over night in Atlanta and toured the city. We had the opportunity to see the brand new World of Coca Cola and the Georgia Aquarium which was FANTASTIC!!! The kids loved every minute of it! Log Cabin fires, smores and lots of snow playing too! It was a wonderful trip and a wonderful way to start the new year! We are glad to be home and ready to see what God has in store for us in 2010! Its going to be a GREAT year in HIM! I am so thankful to be a stay at home mom, even as crazy as life seems at times! All of my kiddos are well and happy and I couldn't ask for anything more! Happy 2010!!!
