Our Christmas was fun. We had my oldest sister and her family come and visit and played lots. A few days before Christmas Alma got to go back home and visit all his Family for his Brothers Wedding. Unfortunately, Kaitlyn was sick only one day and it was Christmas Day. She woke up late and had a hard time opening Presents. She opened a lot of them laying down and as soon as they were opened she fell asleep on the floor. We had crazy wind and rain and Tornado Warnings for most of the morning and the power went out as well. Then we headed over to my Moms for dinner. Kaitlyn slept most the day which just broke my heart. So much excitement and then just like that Christmas is over.

Kaitlyn Turns 4


I have not been very good at blogging lately. Not too much has been happening. Same things as always, so I haven’t been taking too many pictures. Plus our camera has been acting up and the flash broke and I have not been able to get good pictures.

So Kaitlyn turned 4!! We threw a surprise party for Kaitlyn since Alma was going to be out of town on her actual Birthday. For about the last year and a half (since Alma threw me a surprise party… she has been so into jumping out at me whenever I leave the room and yelling surprise!!) Since she has been so into it for so long, I decided to invite a couple friends over and have a surprise party. She and Alma went to the store and then everyone came over and then when she walked in the door we surprised her. It was super fun! I was worried it would overwhelm her but she just jumped right in.

My Mom and Dad came over the night before her actual Birthday and spent the night and then we spent her birthday with them. It was a great weekend.

Things about our 4 year old Kaitlyn:

She loves to talk

She loved to play pretend

She is happy

She is helpful

She is smart

She is understanding and always wanting to learn

She is funny

She is full of life

She is sweet

She loves everyone

She is always trying to make sure everyone is happy

She loves her sister

I love my relationship with her and the things that she says and does. I feel so blessed to have her in my life and to have her as my first born.
