Some thoughts

I know this is a couple months old, but I wanted to post it today because James and I attended a funeral today. It was for his cousin's little boy who only lived 5 1/2 months on this earth. The funeral service was amazing, and we are so grateful to have been there. We also cannot express how grateful we are for our beliefs, and for knowing that Ally and Jim will be reunited with their little baby James again. We love our family, and we are especially so thankful and mindful of how lucky we are to have our perfect little Kaylie. We love her so much, and cannot count our blessings enough...

Christmas Card

So, this is our 07 Christmas card, digitally scrapbooked of course! For those of you that already got the real thing, just disregard this post, but to those of you who did not, (either because I don't have your address, or I am a slacker and mailed them out sooo late and you haven't yet received it), sorry, here it is...

Fast Fun!

So we went with some friends to Jungle Jims the other night... I was a little worried at first, cause all of the rides looked a little scary, I thought for sure we'd spend the whole night riding the "neigh" on the merry-go-round...But as you can see, (hopefully you can see, it's a little blurry I know, we need a camera upgrade obviously...) Kaylie had the time of her life!!! She couldn't stop smiling and laughing, and sticking her little tongue out! She couldn't handle how much fun she was having! She loved every ride, even the one that made the dads sick!

She even learned how to bowl!!!

All of the sudden, my little Kaylie bug is so grown up, brave, and talented, (look at that perfect line up...), I love you, you cute little girl!

Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

James relaxing, before the meal...

Kaylie chillin with her cousins

All the ladies, yeah, good lookin family, eh!

Playin the wii!!!

So, we again cannot just celebrate holidays once, that would be weird, right! We love the double Thanksgiving idea though, we didn't mind packing Kaylie up and keeping her out super late, definitely past her bedtime... And she didn't mind either, she had a blast playing with all her cousins. James' aunt and uncle host pre-Thanksgiving dinner every year for all the extended family, this year we had about 65 people there, or some number close to that. On the complete opposite side of the spectrum, my family got us for Thanksgiving this year, and we had a whopping 9 adults and 4 kids... yeah, quite the contrast! But they were both delicious dinners, and a way good time after! This was our first time playing the wii, I know, we're way behind the times, but we loved it, and I beat James at bowling!!! Yeehaw! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving too, now onto Christmas party planning... :)

Check out Kaylie's new shades!

Grandma Kercher rockin out!

Hangin with CUTE uncle Tom!

"Stirring the brew, stirring the brew, oooo, ooooo, boo!"
Grandma Evans is a spooky witch, with a cool brew, and scary stories for all the kids!

So, we celebrated Halloween like 10 times this year, okay, really 4 though! We had a blast as the "tooth themed family." I know, cheesy, but I had to do it once in my life! So yeah, James was a (gay) hygienist, I was the tooth fairy, and look at the little tooth I got! We had so much fun going everywhere dressed up (don't worry it was three different days, hence my two different colored shirts...), to our ward party, Evans family party--where you can see Kaylie 'stirring the brew', a trunk or treat, and the Kercher family party! You betcha, we just can't get enough partying, especially Kaylie, she's a party animal!

Barn Dance! Yeehaw!

We were so lucky, we got invited to this exclusive "Hoe down." We got to go with mom and dad Evans. Get this, so 4 ladies that play tennis together organize this dance yearly, and they each invite 15 couples and their kids. Then they just hire a caller, rent the barn (in Oakley), and have everyone bring a salad! Easy as pie to organize, who's up for planning one with me?!! It was seriously such a blast, we danced our little hearts out, and only went home so we could relieve our babysitter... (we could've stayed all night!)

Fall Leaves

We love our big front yard... There are so many trees and oh so many leaves! Kaylie has had a blast picking them up, throwing them, sitting in them, and making them crunch! Fall really is a nice change after such a hot summer. I just love sweaters, and Kaylie's wardrobe is so much fun to play dress up with. She's like a little doll! P.S. Did you notice her pigtails! Yup, long enough for elastics, I can't believe how much she's all the sudden a little girl and not an infant anymore! Time flies huh!
