Earth Day with Kennedy

Brittany brought Kennedy up for a short weekend which happened to fall on Earth Day.
So we started our Saturday at the Farmer's Market.

Next we went to a special program at the library where the band uses all recycled items.
And Kennedy danced!

Outside she focused on a simple dandelion.

Later we went out on the boat. More fresh air - and a much needed nap!

Teddy Bear Picnic in Charleston

We were lucky enough to be in Charleston for Kennedy's first Teddy Bear picnic. Held in the beautiful Hampton Park, there were hundreds of small children clutching their teddy bears, dancing to live music, having their faces painted and making fun little crafts. We hope to make this an annual event!

Check out my book of stories on Amazon

In These Days of Cell Phones, Texting, & Social Media...Can the Nest Ever Truly Be Empty?

Most of the stories are one page or two. Some are funny, some sweet, some will make you cry. But if you are a mom or have a mom - you'll relate!

Christmas with Kennedy Part 2

Brittany treats Kennedy like her own little dolly. Constantly dressing her up for every occasion. You can only imagine how much more so on Christmas weekend! :)

Winter morning at Hickory's newest park

Embroidered nativity on her beautiful Christmas Eve dress at church

Opening a special gift from her parents on Christmas Eve in a beautiful box they'll use every year: Reindeer theme pjs, a book about a Reindeer who thinks he's a dog, a stuffed reindeer and little yogurt treats.
Putting out Christmas cookies and milk for Santa in her new jammies

Ready to open presents on Christmas morning

After church, headed out to deliver cookies to the Fire Department

And finally getting ready to go to our neighbors' for a big festive Christmas dinner party!

Wonderful Christmas made even more special by K and her parents' visit!

I just had to add this! If you ask Kennedy for a kiss, she'll lean in and "allow you" to kiss her forehead!
