Makenzie and her Body Butter

Makenzie loves to smell lotion, any kind of lotion, but her favorite is body butter.

Whenever she finds some she has to have the cover taken off so that she can smell it over and over and then offer a smell to whoever is standing near by. Not only does the other person have to smell the body butter, they have to say "mmmmm", just like Kenzie.

Mother's Day 2009

We spent Mother's Day with GG, Mom, Aunt Carol, Uncle John, Sarah and Phil. We started the day going to church with GG and then we went to Angler's in Newport.

But first, Sarah came to visit and entertain the kids:

He replied, "the kind of party with presents."

The long-awaited play date

After many weeks, okay months of, "we should get the boys together". Kim and I finally got Manny and Chasen together to play.

Here are the boys digging holes in the driveway:

Kenzie loving the sandbox too:





Dancing with the cousin

A couple of weeks ago Manny and Makenzie's cousin Gracie came down to visit. Of course that involved a trip to Toys R Us where Gracie bought a dancing game.

Gracie and Makenzie loved it as you can see.
