Maui Bound


So we are leaving tomorrow for Maui - I know, I know, don't all cuss at me at once! My younger brother Travis is as some people would put it "FINALLY" marrying his long time girlfriend Hollie - who I already consider a Sister and give her lots of credit for putting up with him & this family for the last 5+ years. We can't wait to share this moment with them.


This will be Sydney's first vacation, not to mention first airplane ride as well as many other firsts...unfortunately she won't remember any of it. But I promise to take lots of fun pics to share upon our return...or while I am there if I have the tools to make it work!


I would say that I am READY to get the heck out of here...however, ironically KC has had balmy 60-70 degree weather the last two days. That is usually our luck, we leave for a warm tropical vacation in the middle of the winter and it turns out it is nice the entire time we are gone and then it will return to the 'bitter' cold midwest just before we come back!!!


But I still won't complain...we'll be in Maui for a week!!!

Check out our stair climber...



Sooo...Sydney was at the office with me the other day and decided she would scale the lower 4 stair landing...can't turn our backs anymore...well at least not until she is that screaming child in the department store or restaurant that we don't want to claim as ours!!!

Calling all Tooth Fairy's


The tooth fairy will be happy to hear that Sydney cut her first tooth this weekend! Bottom right! We thought we felt something yesterday night...but she hasn't been too interested in letting us put our finger in to check. Needless to say, I don't think we'll be doing that anymore...I'd like to keep all 10 of mine intact. Our friend Dana suggested that I keep a log of when each tooth comes in and then when she loses that same tooth. We wonder if the first tooth in, is the first tooth lost...interesting thought to ponder and I am going to do my best to keep track!

Mama's New Ride - Sydney approved!




This has been a long time coming...Matt has dreamed of having a car that actually has the word "Toy" in it forever and now he can finally say he does! We found a heck of a deal on a 1997 with only 78K with one owner in Wichita that we couldn't pass up. So if anyone is interested in the Subie please send me a comment here and we will be posting more info on it soon!!! The hardest part for Matt will be watching me get in it every day and drive away since it will be my main car for awhile...but just wait until he gets done with it...this 4-Wheel drive vehicular module will be loads of fun on future family campouts and excursions!
