Finally a new post

I can't believe it's been so LONG since I last posted. We had a really good Easter, it started out with an early morning (not really sunrise since it was at 8 and the sun rises a little earlier than that around here) service at Church followed by a pitch-in brunch and our regular service. We ate lunch with Mom, Dad and Mary. Dad also hid eggs for Kendrick to hunt, when I get those pics downloaded I will get them posted. It was the first year that we had hid eggs and Kendrick really seemed to enjoy it. He also got more candy and "stuff" than any almost 3 year old knows what to do with. His favorite things are a HUGE stuffed frog that Grandma Mary gave him and a recorder that mom and dad gave him. I "let" him keep the recorder in the house so mom and dad can "enjoy" his musical stylings. LOL Kendrick has been fighting a cold lately, but I think we are over the worst of it now. We are looking forward to a visit from Becky in about 3 weeks, we haven't seen her since Kendrick's first birthday. She is graduating from WVU in May and we are so extremely proud of her!! Now if she can get the job in Detroit it would be totally awesome!

This and That

One day I looked out in the cedar tree and this is what I saw there were probably 5 pair of bluebirds!! I guess they forgot to migrate before the snows hit

I started this afghan for Mark way back in 2005. I worked on it some didn't like the way it was turning out so I took it out and started over. Finally after 3 years here it is DONE!!

Kendrick took his toys out of his toy box one day and pretended he was taking a nap in it.

Playing in his toy box

He also discovered he could roll our filing drawers over and climb on top of it and turn the light on and off.
I know this is a short post especially since its been so long since I have posted. Our lives have been going through a time of adjustment, discovery and growth. We came to the somewhat difficult decision to leave Bird Lake church. I will not go into details as why we came to that decision on here at least if you want more details leave a comment and I will email you the details. We are now attending Freedom Farm Bible Church. They have a school so when the time comes Kendrick will more than likely be attending there. We are thankful for all our dear friends at Bird Lake and they will not be forgotten!! Until next time, I hope you all are having a very blessed new year!

Kendrick the Monkey

While I was going through Kendricks clothes and bagging up his 18 month clothes this is how he entertained himself. He is definitely not scared of heights or tight spaces.

Playing Peek-A-Boo

He said he was going to take a nap. Thankfully he can't shut the drawers when he's in them and at this point if they are shut he can't open them himself to get in. Life is definitely not dull with this very active 2 year old in the house.

Our Christmas

All ready for bed

Kendrick making "scary faces"

(pause the music to the right before playing the video) Unfortunately when I took videos of our Christmas I didn't think about keeping a few "small" enough to post on blogger. I also totally forgot to take pictures. Kendrick was so cute when he woke up he wanted to see his "surprises". When we gave his first gift to him (a stuffed horse named patches) he wasn't sure what to do with it. For Kendrick's third Christmas he received from Mommy and Daddy a stuffed horse, 2 sleepers, a Bob the Builder video and a Black & Decker Junior tool bench. Nana and Papa gave him a Mickey Mouse sleeper, a book, Don't Break the Ice, and a little farm animals set. GrandMom Richards sent a $25 gift card, and Grandma Mary gave him a deposit for his college fund. He is still waiting on his gift from Aunt Becky, she bought it a couple months ago just hasn't gotten around to either coming for a visit or mailing it (we still love you Beck). So since I didn't get Christmas pictures or videos that I could upload to blogger here is a video of Kendrick and Mark playing. Mark was running down the hall and "getting" Kendrick. I love Kendricks belly laughs I hope he never outgrows them.

Christmas Pictures

With Mom's help I got some really cute pictures of Kendrick tonight. I have LOVED these Jammie's on Kendrick and he has actually worn them all year long, but since he has started to outgrow them and won't be wearing them much longer I decided to get some pictures of him in them.

This was actually the first picture we took of him!

Sweet Little Man!

He is as ornery as he looks!

Potato Candy

Mom decided to make potato candy. Kendrick had fun making it, but didn't really enjoy eating it. He basically just licked the peanut butter off a piece and gave the rest to either mom or me. I missed getting a pic or video of the rest of the process.
