I can't believe my baby is 6. She had a great birthday. Blueberry pancakes for her bday breakfast. A mani/pedi with mom as well as cupcakes for her class. But the celebration doesn't end there...dinner at her favorite place "the Bean Burrito Store) a.k.a Rosa's and banana splits at home. Plus, Chuck E Cheese and a sweet little tea party to end the day. Happy Birthday baby! I LOVE YOU!

We had a fantastic valentine's day. Brenton brought home chili's take out for his ladies. (we use to do that when we were dating ) and we had a little Vday picnic in front of the fire. The girls got new Webkinz and they can't wait to start playing! I LOVE mi familia!
Sunday 2/13 Kenzie was so excited to go hunting with her dad. Brenton shot it but Kenz loved posing with it. I love her...she is so TOUGH AND FULL OF SPUNK. I love her giving heart & passion. She is going to do GREAT things.
Kaitlyn and I got to spend the day together and all she wanted to do was look at herself in the mirror. I love my little DIVA...her heart is SO full of JOY. I hope her confidence stays with her through all aspects of her life. Not only confidence in her beauty but in her strength and intelligence. SO blessed by my girls.

2.11.11 My hubby surprised me with a very romantic DATE night. He is always good, but this time he went above and beyond to plan out a not so ordinary, VERY romantic night full of things he knew I would LOVE. I love after all these years that we still get dressed up, talk & laugh & ENJOY each other's company. I am VERY BLESSED! Brenton, YOU ROCK! I LOVE U!
2.10.11 Snow is STILL everywhere, which we are not use to. We can get 5 ft of snow and it will be gone by noon. Which always makes Kenzie SO mad...so the snow is STILL here, it is STILL hard to get around, and my girls STILL LOVE it...I guess that is all that matters!
2.09.11 Just Catching up on blogging! We had an awesome snow day! I could not keep the girls inside! Every time I told Kenzie it was time to come in and get warm she would offer to shovel the sidewalk just so she could stay out. They love going out and PLAYING forever! If I don't have skis or a 4wheeler I can only last a few minutes. Luckily, I had my BIG ZOOM lens so I could stay warm and still get shots of my girlies...even Kloey!
(photos edited with actions from Paint the Moon they are awesome...go check them out!)

My girls, particularly my oldest (my mini me), does not always THINK before she speaks and we have talked about this A LOT lately. I use to do this "experiment" with my ED kids (minus the bible verses :( ) SO they got to squeeze out a whole tube of toothpaste, which they thought was SO COOL! Then they had to have a race to see who could put the toothpaste back in the tube the fastest....yeah my oldest is a bit DETERMINED and COMPETITIVE. Then when or IF they realize it CAN NOT be done....that is when you talk about toothpaste being like hurtful words...can't take them back. That is why God wants us to think before we speak (Proverbs 15:28), to CONTROL our words (James 3:2,5) and to make our WORDS and THOUGHTS (even the things we say to ourselves) to be pleasing to HIM (Psalms 19:14) I thought this was a GREAT lesson for them and for me.

We had a great, but Lazy Superbowl Sunday and NOW it is already Monday.....Brad Paisley describes me best in the verse from She's Everything when he says "she's a church girl on Sunday and a cuss word 'cause its Monday"...sounds a bit hypocritical BUT unfortunately it FITS....
I hope to get over my Monday Blues and get some more pictures posted and maybe some DIY projects...Have a HAPPY Monday!

Since everyone else in the world seemed to be getting a SNOW DAY we decided to take our own snow day...even though we really didn't have snow! BUT it was -30 so snow or no snow we needed to stay home! We stayed in our jammies all day, cuddled by the fire, played games, & read books. PLUS Kenzie made us breakfast ALL BY HERSELF and it was PERFECT!
