This has been a long week

We have had alot of appointments and lunch dates this week. Makenna has spent alot of time in the carseat and when she is in the carseat she takes her shoes and socks off everytime. Josh had a dentist app and he's teeth look great after the braces. Josh has started working at subway and really enjoys it. On Monday we went to lunch with our friend Caroline which just left yesterday to get their daughter in China can't wait to meet you Erin and have a playmate. Makenna gets upset when Josh and Kayla go to school this week she found a backpack and wears it almost all day. She will hug,kiss and say bye to me. She is growing up to fast.

No Snow

They were calling for snow here last night kids got very excited and this morning when we looked out there was a little snow enough to close school. That's not saying much because they call school out even if there is a chance of snow. Let's just say the kids are upset! Maybe next time.

Braces off Finally

Josh got his braces off today he has wore them for 3 1/2 years. His teeth look great it took longer due to the Orthro had only seen one other patient with the same problem. It took us going to three orthro before we found one that had seen this problem before. On to Makenna she has a pair off purple crocs that someone gave her that she throws a fit to wear everywhere even to bed. Only problem is they are two sizes too big. Today she got so upset when I took them off to put her tennis shoes on. I ended up letting her wear them since we were only going to the orthro.

New song, Brandon Heath and Toby Mac were some of the groups there. Kayla took her new camera and got a few good pictures. This is the second year we have enjoyed the winter jam and were already looking forward to next year.

What's New

Makenna is now calling us Mommy and Daddy instead of Moma and Dada. She can say Josh and calls Kayla (Layla) which Kayla thinks this is very sweet. Josh and Makenna have a special relationship I love watching him play and interact with her. Kayla and Makenna still have there sister issues. They really like each other one minute the next minute Makenna pulls kayla hair and just scream. I told Kayla the other day that what happens we you have a young sister. I can't believe that it was two years ago this month that we sent our first application to our agency. The pictures are of Makenna's enjoying her favorite food and we have to strip her because she has to feed herself.
