Kenzie is so grown up. I can't believe how beautiful she has become. I love watching her grow and develop her own ideas and style. She is such a great daughter...and so, so cute! I sure do love this girl.
Megan asked me to make her a pink cake with pink candles. She was so excited!!! She kept asking me if I had bought the candles yet. I assured her that it was handled. I did get the candles and she was happy.
We were watching a friend's dog this weekend and somehow the dog got into the rabbit's cage. There was a struggle, and in the end Lilly had a broken neck. We had to put her down, but not before Kenzie asked us to take a picture of her and her beloved rabbit. As a parent, your heart aches for your child when something like this happens. Kenzie was very upset, but she realized that the dog was just being a dog. Lilly is buried next to Gavin's frog out in the backyard. Although sad, it's a necessary event in our lives. We need to teach our children that they will experience loss sometime in their lives, but that you deal with your feelings and move on. Needless to say, Kenzie bares no ill will toward the dog and even cuddled with her on the couch after the incident.
"Look mom, I'm so big!" That's right, Laney turned "1" on December 30th. It's also her daddy's birthday. I can't believe this year is over. I'm looking forward to so many fun times with my baby girl. She makes this family so happy. We have been blessed to have Laney with us. Mommy loves you Laners.
Gavin apparently has some aquatic traits. He had an extra tooth behind his two front teeth. The dentist affectionately referred to it as his "sharktooth", and the name stuck!! Unfortunately this extra tooth was pulled in late December 2009. We will miss you sharktooth. By the way, Gavin was a champ. They didn't have to sedate him....it was me that needed the happy gas!!
