Kenadie turned 3 in August which was a big affair. She had a pool party and she was spoiled rotten of course. Randy and I also celebrated our 4th anniversary in August. My mom was awesome and kept her overnight while we went to Tucson and we got to spend some much needed alone time together. It's so hard for me to believe that we've been married 4 years already. It's gone by so quick. We enjoy looking back over all the things we've done over the years and look forward to whatever else is in store for us.
August also meant that school started for me again. But, I'm finally in the NAU program so I'm doing my last two years now. The end is definately in sight and I'm way excited. It's been difficult for the three of us in different ways, but we adapt and overcome :) Before we know it we'll be looking back remembering when I was going to school.
Randy is busy with work. He still loves what he's doing and I admire him more and more every day for what he does. I definately couldn't do it! Of course he says the same thing about teaching. He also has a car project going right now. He's restoring a '66 Mustang which is his current pride and joy. He's been going back and forth between enjoying it and cursing its existance, so it's been sort of entertaining to watch.
I began substitute teaching at Morenci. It's been real fun and I've enjoyed going back to work. Some days are more trying than others but I'm hoping it will get a little easier as time goes on. It's definately good practice if nothing else.
Our world revolves around Kenadie, and she knows it. Although the terrible 3s have set in, she's still a joy 98% of the time. She is so full of energy and has so much character. She is also begging constantly for a little brother. Hopefully we can make that happen for her soon. Her only requests are that the baby brother doesn't cry, doesn't touch her stuff, and doesn't eat all her food. Lol....that girl, I tell ya....
That's pretty much all of it in a nutshell. We are going to be taking a trip to Disneyland at the end of October so we are super excited about that. Kenadie is going to be Cinderella for Halloween and is so excited to go trick or treating with Mickey Mouse. It's a good thing she has her papa and her "fairy godmother" Sandra to make things like that happen. Xoxo
God bless. Until next time....

Randy has been busy as ever with work. He is in training in Phoenix right now for 2 weeks to become a DRE (drug recognition expert, sounds impressive, right?) and me and Kenadie are missing him like crazy! I cried like a baby when he left and for a week before, but I find it comforting that after 4 years of being together, I never want to be away from him. He still loves his job and he does an amazing job and is one of the hardest working people I know. He recently recieved an award for outstanding performance. He did 38 DUIs just in the last year. I am endlessly proud of him. He bought a banshee in the last couple months and it's his "baby girl." Sadly he doesn't get a whole lot of time to ride it, but atleast he has it he says. Between that and his mustang he feels pretty happy about what toys he has.
Kenadie is absolutely the most wonderful kid ever. She is so much fun and always keeps us on our toes. She has so much personality and is very strong willed. Things I hope never change. She is very busy and is just growing too fast for my liking. It seems like just yesterday she was an infant crying all night. Now I have this toddler that talks back and makes me me laugh, cry, and lose my patience, sometimes all at the same time. Being a parent is awesome and both me and Randy indulge in every moment with her.
We moved into a new house this last week and it is AWESOME!!!! We love it. We had put in a tranfer in September but didn't think we'd ever really get it. Then, totally out of the blue we find out we got a new house. We moved in record time, which I might add was no easy task with a hurt foot, but alas, we are mostly settled in and we don't miss the old house at all. The house we are in now is newer and it has TWO bathrooms, central heating and cooling, and lots and lots of cupboard space. Things we desparately missed in the other house! Needless to say this has been an exciting time for our little family.
That's a little bit of what has been going on. We had an amazing holiday season and we feel so blessed to have so much family and people around us to love. We are all looking forward to the new year and all that will come with it.

We have all been keeping pretty busy. Randy's working a lot as usual and I've been keeping busy with Kenadie and church stuff. Tomorrow night is our mother daughter night for my girls so I'm glad that the stress is almost over. Tomorrow I'll be running around crazy but then it'll be over. Randy and I have our first nephew. Randy was so excited. I'm sure we'll do our fair share of spoiling the boy rotten. I'd already forgotten how small and fragile newborns are when we went to visit him at the hospital. Didn't make me want another one though so that's a good sign I suppose. Maybe in another year I'll get baby hungry. My friend Amanda had another baby a couple weeks ago and we had her daughter Libby for the day. Her and Kenadie had a picnic for lunch and we took them to the park when it cooled off to go play. They had a good time. I don't think I could ever survive twins though.
Kenadie was so cute the other day. Randy was sleeping on the couch and she was so tired because she wakes up at 5:30 in the morning so she got her blanket and crawled up with him and fell asleep. They look so much alike! I never thought I could love anything as much as I love Randy and Kenadie. They are my world.
Kenadie playing in her little pool Ran built her at the river last week. She was so excited. I have a video but once again for some reason it won't let me upload it but I'll keep working on it.

It's so quiet in the house after Kenadie goes to bed. As much as I want peace and quiet all day, it makes me kinda sad that it's so quiet. She's getting so big. Lately it seems everytime she falls asleep, she's grown a couple inches by the time she wakes up. She's talking so much now too. It's amazing how she goes to bed one night then wakes up the next morning and can do all sorts of new things. She's been wanting to pretty much live in her red wagon her grandpa Ramie bought her for Christmas last year. Yesterday my mom, Heather, Jorden, and Destany came up for a visit. It was so nice. I love getting company at our house. Destany spent lots of time pulling Kenadie around in the wagon. The kids are so cute with Kenadie. We had our trip to Scottsdale a couple weeks ago. It was so great to get out of town. I didn't want to come home at all. We stayed at the Orange Tree Golf Resort and it was so nice! We had so much room and it was so comfortable. I loved it.
This is Kenadie taking a bath in the huge tub that was in our room. We turned the jets on in it for her but she didn't really like it. Randy learned a lot in his training and it was a wonderful little get away for the three of us. I'm greatful that both Randy and I need to get outta town periodically. We're usually pretty happy to be coming home, but we both appreciate the need to get away.
Kenadie had a good Easter and scored big with everyone of course. I have a video, but for some reason it won't upload so I will have to try again later when I'm not so tired. That is a little of what's going on, more to come, promise, but for now I need sleep. Xoxo
