This is what I get when I'm sick

Poor Kyndall has been sick. She's gotten croup again. :( This time the doctor we saw decided to try breathing treatments since she has only gone about 4 weeks between cases this time.

It took some convincing, a little help from Daddy, and a fish mask, but she finally did her treatments without it being a wrestling match.

So because she did so well, we decided to reward her a little. We took her to Toys R Us and let her pick something new. She picked a Tinkerbell tent and tunnel.

She really likes this thing! She uses it as her hiding place.

Hopefully it'll be a LONG time before Kyndall has to deal with croup again.



This weekend, we had a cousin who was having a bowling party. I figured I felt well enough after my surgery on the 10th that we could go. Kyndall had never been bowling before, but she had a really good time!

She is super strong. She was able to pick up the bowling ball and take it to the lane all by herself!

They had super cute little dino ramps to help the little ones get the ball down the lane. She and a 4 year old little girl bowled together on the same lane. Kyndall tried so hard to push the ball down the lane a couple of times but was never able to get it all the way down the lane so she had to use the ramp. Kyndall and the other little girl would get so excited for each other and for themselves.

Kyndall even got a strike! She wasn't sure why everyone was cheering for her, but she knew she did something right.

While I don't see bowling in our super near future since I'm still recovering from hernia surgery, I'm sure we'll take Kyndall again once I can finally lift more than 10lbs at a time.


Birthday- Version 3, Part 3

Yesterday, we had Kyndall's school party. It was a pancake/pajama party. I know I may sound crazy, but I've had this party planned for nearly 4 years, and yes, I know Kyndall just turned 3. (One of the little girls in my class 4 years back had this type of party, and I knew that if I had a little girl, I was going to do this for her 3rd birthday.)

We did very simple decorations and no real theme, just fun bright colors! I found this banner on Pinterest.

Kyndall blowing out her candles on her birthday pancakes!

See, one blessed and very loved kiddo! She got so excited about opening everything, well except the clothes from momma and daddy. Silly girl.

An attempt to get a picture of everyone in their pajamas.

This doll though, had to be one of her favorites. Its a Baby Alive baby that comes with a doctor kit. She was so excited because she could help "save kids like Daddy does!"

Now that this party is over, I guess it's time to start planning next years. I have no idea where to start.

Happy New Year!

Wow! It's 2012. Happy New Year!!

Last night, Chad had to work, so a couple from our church came over the do fireworks.

Kyndall enjoyed some but wasn't sure of most of them.

Mrs. Lori gave Kyndall one of the chicken fireworks. She has it on her dresser because she refused to let it be lit.

Roman Candles.

I can't wait to see what God has in store for us in 2012.
