We have been trying to lose this (our first) tooth FOREVER. After much, much drama when Ken and I tried to check pull it out, it fell out when Karlee was brushing her teeth before school this morning. With no drama at all.

Bright Spot in a Gloomy Day

What a yucky day today - rain, cold, wind. Not fun at all - but we did have one bright spot in our day. Kendall, Kourtney, Kamryn and I got to go to lunch with our "adopted" college students. Our church has a program to pair college students with family in an effort to help them connect and have a "home away from home". We have known about our two girls for a while, but had not been able to find a time to meet with them. We finally worked out a chance to meet them today at Chick-fil-A (Kendall's favorite. Okay, my favorite too.) We had a great time meeting with Jillian and Melody and we are excited about getting to know them better. I can already tell that they will be great Christian examples for the girls.

I Want S'more!!

Ken had been promising the girls that he would take them fishing. Kendall was upset that she didn't get to go to the ballgame today so Ken decided that after the game we would go down to the lake and fish, have a bonfire and roast hot dogs and make s'mores! We called Papa, Kerry and Aunt Amy and the boys to join us. The girls loved fishing with their new pink & purple Barbie fishing poles - but were bummed because they didn't catch anything. The roasted hot dogs were delicious and s'mores just might be my MOST favorite dessert of all time. Karlee had a little loose tooth drama near the end of the night, but a hug from Tanner was all she needed to feel better.

A Day in the Life . . .

Several people have asked me recently - "what's it like, how do you do it, what's your typical schedule like?" So I decided to document a typical day in our KRAZY life. Obviously I missed some things but hopefully this will give you an idea of what happens around here on a daily basis.
