"Uncle" Kevin












Our most recent surprise visitor was Kevin. He was driving into town on his way to see his brother and dad nearby. Kevin used to live with us (last year from January to June) and was there during most of Rachel's pregnancy. He used to have quite the beard then. But anyway, he stopped in to say hello and to see Kelly. At first she didn't really "take" to him (probably because she hadn't seen him without some kind of facial hair). But Kelly quickly warmed up to him and had a blast playing with him!

Traveling with Kelly


Now, Kelly fits quite well into your luggage. We found that out when Zach packed her up into his bag and she wasn't ready to get out very quickly!
Zach was getting ready to head home for the Christmas break. Little does he know what it's really like to travel with Kelly. This year, we are headed to spend the break with Rachel's family, and boy, oh boy, Kelly sure does require a lot of things to travel! I think this will be one of the last few vacations we travel for for a long time!

Kelly, Breakfast in Bed


Kelly is only slightly spoiled. I mean, she gets breakfast in bed more than anyone else in our house! I guess we need to work on that a little. She is taking too quickly to this kind of treatment!

New Camera, therefore New Pictures






So, we were given a new camera for Christmas and decided to post new pictures that we have taken with it. Hope you enjoy looking at them!

Kelly's First Snow! (this year)















It snowed today for the first time this year, and Kelly LOVED it! I showed her how to eat snow and that's about about all she wanted to do. She also helped me snowplow the apartments for a few minutes. She liked the ride on the 4-wheeler but wanted to steer it and not just ride it. We'll have those pictures up later.

At the park



We haven't posted a family picture yet...so I thought I should do that. We took this picture ourselves while at the park with Kelly. It isn't very flattering to me (JP) because I look like I have multiple chins, but oh well. It's us!

Kelly's love of swings

video

I figured it out (with the help of a fellow Facilities Management student, Kirk). I originally posted this video sideways because that was the way I recorded it and couldn't figure out how to rotate it. Well, now I know how! So, here it is...the right way to view it!

Thanksgiving Turkey Selection


This pre-Thanksgiving activity was quite eventful! Kelly found the "Tom" she wanted (17 pounds total...Kelly only weighs 21 pounds) and carried it all herself from the checkout line to the freezer!

Kelly's Birthday



















Kelly turned one year old this year. We can't believe she is already one!!! Time flies so fast! Well, the pictures speak for themselves...Kelly had sooo much fun on her birthday! She opened all her own presents once she got the hang of ripping the wrapping paper off. Then she had no hesitation diving right into her cupcake. She made quite the mess of it! She even made sure to share it with Rachel!


Halloween!



Kelly was our little Indian for Halloween this year. She had a blast trick-or-treating! She carried her own basket and knocked on all the doors herself the whole night! And obviously, as you can see in this picture, she is quite the hunter!
