Miss Independence

For the last week or two, Kenna has been really "practicing" taking her clothes on and off by herself. She also wants to be the one to read the books and everything else. We are definitely in a "I do it!" phase.

Last week, Daniel and I were getting ready for bed and went in to check on Miss K before we went to sleep. This is what we found..... We had not heard much noise coming from her room, but I guess she decided that she needed to play with her Rangers hat and then take off her pajamas.
Apparently, she needed a little more reading as well.

She barely woke up when we tried to put her PJs back on....I can't believe that she could fall asleep this way!

Visit with Santa

This morning we had some fun family time and went out for breakfast and then a visit with Santa. Kenna LOVES breakfast food and would not stop eating her pancakes and omelet long enough to smile at the camera. Look at that craziness on her head!
There was a great balloon artist making the rounds and taking donations for Samaritan's Purse. Kenna loved her Rudolph hat and was glad that it didn't interfere with her food consumption!
After breakfast, we headed down to Willow Bend to visit with Santa Claus. They had a wonderful Narnia display and even had fake snow falling while we were waiting our turn.

Kenna wanted to do somersaults on the snow but Mommy had to put a stop to that one! :)
She thought it was fun to look up into the light and the falling snow. I don't have any pictures of Dane because he and Daddy were hanging out on the benches outside...just people watching and enjoying his bottle.
I thought their picture turned out pretty well! The Santa was great and called them each by name as they walked up. Kenna told him that she wanted Kenna presents in the snowman (her stocking has a snowman on it) and Dane presents in the moose (his stocking). She also told him to put Mommy presents in the green one and Daddy presents in the red one. Santa told her that he thought he could probably take care of that and there would be lots of presents in all of the stockings. :)
Merry Christmas!

"I need in there with him"

Yesterday, my kiddos got to spend some quality time with their Daddy. It was the first full day the three of them had spent at home together since Daniel's surgery (Sept 29) and it sounds
like they had a good day. About halfway through the morning, Daniel sent me these pictures. When he and Kenna went in to get Dane, she insisted on getting in the bed with Dane. She loves being in bed with her brother (or pretty much anywhere with him) and will tell us over and over again that she needs in bed with him. I love that she enjoys her brother so much.
... and I love PJ pics!!

My Little Gangsta

Just because I haven't posted in a while, I thought I would add a recent picture of Kenna. I took this picture on the way to work the other day. Daniel said it is a picture of his little gangsta giving a shout out to her homies.....
