House Projects

When you own a house there's something in the air that makes you want to go out and spend money on flowers! We have been trying to figure out what we could do to add a little color to the front of the house without completely redoing the landscaping.

We found a great flower nursery on county road 49 in the back woods of Alabama, and bought some flowers for the front and back of the house.
It's an on going project, but we like how it is all coming together!

6 Months Old!!

Our little Kenadie is growing up so fast! It is hard to believe she is already 6 months old!

At her last doctors appointment at the beginning of May, she weighed 14lbs & 6oz and was
25 1/2 inches long! She is in the 25th % for weight for her age. Needless to say, she is growing fast and moving up the chart with each doctors visit! Here are some recent pictures of our little lady!

Green Bean Fun!

Now that Kenadie is 6 months old, our doctor gave us the "go ahead" to begin feeding her veggies. We decided to start with green beans. It took her a couple of feeds to get use to the new taste, but she now loves the taste.

Cathy decided to attempt making homemade veggies for Kenadie. It is so easy. You basically steam or boil the frozen or fresh veggies until done and throw them into the blender.
Surprisingly, Kenadie prefers the taste of the homemade veggies over the Gerber brand! YEA!!!
This will save us lots of money!

Easter '09

Easter 2009 was so much fun here in Alabama! Kenadie's GiGi came to visit for a couple of days and Nana B & Daddy Gene came to visit for Easter Sunday! We had a Great time with family although we did miss getting to see PaPa this trip.

Along with celebrating the Resurrection of our Lord we had the opportunity to dedicate Kenadie during the 11am morning worship service.
She did GREAT on the platform in front of so many people.

We had a great time at "Easter on the Square" in downtown Opelika on Satuday morning.
Here are some pictures from our busy weekend.

Rice Cereal

It is hard to believe that Kenadie is old enough to have some rice cereal once a day.
Her first time eating rice cereal was filled with moments of joy and moments of confusion!
She got the hang of it and now LOVES her rice cereal.

Conversations with Kenadie

Kenadie just recently found her "voice." She loves to hear herself talk.
She seems to be the most vocal when we put her in bouncy seat.

Catchin' Some Rays

This past weekend we went to Gulf Shores, AL with our friends the Tinsley's. Although the trip was to plan for an upcoming retreat we managed to get out to the beach for a short time on Saturday. The weather was beautiful even though it was really windy. We hope to come back soon with Kenadie and play a little more on the beach and in the water.

This was our view from the balcony when we got up Saturday morning.

Kenadie wearing her little swim outfit. She is too little for the swimsuits we had for her so our friends let us borrow this swim shirt and bottoms.

She LOVED putting her toes in the white sand!

The water was still too cold to get in and the wind was strong so we just stuck our toes in.

Kenadie relaxing on the lounge chair. She liked being under the towels that were keeping her warm.
Check out her new hair style compliments of the wind!
