Kenslee Hope is ONE! Her actual party is Sat., but she did get one present from Ms Valerie. We think she enjoyed it especially the cute box! Thank you Valerie. She is almost walking, she will take several steps to us. I'll post party pics this weekend!

Has it really been a year?

Wow this year has been in fast forward. Kenslee Hope is one, we can't believe it!

Larry the pumpkin

A few years ago Rich started craving the pumpkin with Kendall, then Keaton now Kenslee. They always look forward to it and for some reason always name it "Larry". Keaton picked that name when he was 3 or 4 and it has stuck. This year they wanted Kenslee to help, so she did.


These were taken at the fall festival at school. Kendall was Nancy Drew she picked out everything herself this year. Kenslee was a very busy "HERSHEY'S KISS" all her pictures were blurry from motion. Keaton, well he wanted to be a wolf, the scary kind, I really struggled with this, but it was his costume . We worked hard on his face, he liked it but said not ever again, no more glue! Thank goodness.


Kendall played on the 5th and 6th grade volleyball team. They all did a great job. We love watching , we better we have many years ahead of us.

Cotton Pickin Time

We love Fall! Each year we have to go see Grandad's cotton pickers in action. Kendall and Keaton are amazed and love it. I have to admit I like it too. Growing up with it you don't appreciate it, but it always brings back lots of memories. Of course they don't get to play in cotton trailers like I did, but they both love it. Kenslee was unsure of the noise and dust blowing, but can never get enough of Mama and Grandad.

Messy but Lovin it

Kenslee prefers real food to the strained version. She has no table manners yet, but that will come. We enjoy laughing at her each night at the table, she gets so excited and will eat anything. Kendall and Keaton do not believe they ever did this.HA

We are having a...BOY

Back at the end of September I had to look. After doing ultrasounds for so long, you just cannot be surprised. At least we couldn't. We had to know, plus my mom was ready to shop. I thought that would become old on the 4th baby, thankfully no. He is for sure BOY. He does not have name yet, but Rich calls him the Equalizer. Keaton is soooo HAPPY. I guess they were feeling out numbered.

Fair Time

We took everyone to the Kennett fair. Kenslee's first fair


This is my great niece Reece Elizabeth . Proud parents Brad(my nephew) and Sarah Jackson. She is beautiful, I'll add better pics later. She arrived 9-7-08 weighing 7lbs 11oz 20 1/2 in long. We are so happy to have her . She and Kenslee will have lots of fun together.
