Where Did the Years Go!

Kelsie is TEN today. I can not believe it has been ten years. Kelsie is such a big help. She is so willing to pitch and do whatever needs to be done. She was so excited to turn ten. She made her own Birthday sign and put it on the door, It stated "Happy Birthday to me. Love Kelsie" I wonder where she gets that from? The apple really doesn't fall to far from the tree. I love that girl and know she will enjoy all the rest of her Birthdays just like her mom! Happy Birthday. Love Ya Kelsie!

A Nice Break!

So last week we got to take a nice break, before our Thanksgiving break. Grandma and Grandpa Kneeland paid for the Kneeland family to go on a Cruise to Catalina and Ensenada, Mexico. We had a great time. Lots of FOOD, Kids club, Naps, Relaxing, Shows, games, and more FOOD! And the best part was I did not have to clean one thing or make one thing or prepare anything, and best of all I didn't have to do Laundry for a WEEK! YES! Here are a few pictures of our trip.

Carson Strikes Again!

So we went grocery shopping at Sam's Club tonight, after getting all the groceries and Scott was waiting to pay, the kids asked if I would get them dessert from the snack bar. I said no problem. So right as I approach the window to order a BIG LOUD siren goes off. I am startled , I look to my left, low and behold there is a door right there and EMERGENCY exit door! And who do you think is standing right there? Who pushed it open? Good Guess! CARSON, I love that kid I think he gets his kicks Humiliating me.

Twelve Years

Wow twelve years, I can't believe it. Yesterday we had our Twelve year Anniversary. It was great. Scott had a Seminary Conference in the morning, when he got home he did the cutest thing he had the kids bring in twelve things with 12 things in them and each one of them said something cute each time. Because it was our twelfth anniversary on the twelfth of September. I ended up with twelve sunflowers, twelve purple flowers, a bouquet of flowers that cost twelve dollars, a twelve pack of squirt, a twelve pack of creme soda, 12 nutty bars, 12 muffins, 12 snickerdoodles, 12 sugar cookies, a dozen eggs, 12 swiss rolls and then the man I have been married to for twelve years. It was so cute I think it is the most creative Scott has ever been. Thanks Scott I love you! Then I went shopping with Mindy and Kelsie, and Scott and the others went to Scott's softball game, then they met us at the Iron Wok for dinner. Then Scott and I went to a baptism for one of his water polo boys it was so special. What a wonderful day!

So this afternoon made for a very humiliating afternoon! We were picking up Bailee from school this afternoon, and we got there a few minutes early. I was talking on the phone with Kari Hall about the activity tomorrow afternoon. I heard water running so I turn around to find Carson peeing in the planter right in front of the principals secretaries office, worst part was she was looking right at him and knocking on the window. WOW! But it gets better she came out and was talking to us and then laughing about it. Was I ever embarrased!So when we got home I plated up some brownies, had Carson write a card ( with my help), tied a bow on them, and back to the school we went. Carson went to her office and told her sorry! And he handed her the brownies. I asked him if he would ever do that again, He answered No! Hopefully a lesson was learned. It's so fun in Carson's world!

Talk about a Great Birthday!

So it all started on Thursday night when my dear friend Kari Hall took me out to dinner to BJ's YUM! and a free birthday pazookie! Then on Friday morning my dear husband suggested I go to out with my mom and spend the night at her house. Just to have some mom time! (I asked him if he was feeling ok? he said yes!) Then I proceeded to set it all up. I went out to my mom's at 5:30 and my sister, mom and I were off to Kohl's, my mom spoiled me with clothes (thanks mom) they were needed! Then we went to dinner at Johnny Carino's It was yummy. Then Saturday morning I got up and got ready and had a fabulous birthday. Breakfast at the Avocado house, then off to Disneyland. What a great day. Thank you Korie! Then this morning church, then all the family came over to celebrate, great food, great gifts and great people. I could not have asked for anything more. Thank you so much all of you especially Scott and Mindy you made it all happen. Good Bye Birthday! Till next YEAR!

Kids are back to school and they are so excited, Kelsie was up at 6:00 and Bailee was up at 6:10 asking what bag she could take and she was so excited for school. Logan got up about 6:30, he just hopped right in the shower no complaining. I had my alarm set for 6:30 so much for that. Oh well glad they were all excited! Now I am just listening to Carson ask where is Kelsie? Where is Logan? Where is Bailee? Over and over. I think he is bummed. Oh well I will just have to entertain him.

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mama's out there. I had a nice relaxing Mother's Day. We went to church with my mom then had lunch with my mom and just hung out. All the children cleaned up after lunch and they did a good job of it. Then Scott and I and the kiddos went out to Mindy's for dinner to be with his mom, she made salmon
(yuck) and chicken ( for me) and we just had a nice time visiting. The guys cleaned up. Oh how I love that. All in all it was a great Mother's day.
(P.S. Laura got out of the hospital today so it was a good Mother's Day for her also.)

Bailee's Tea Party!

We had so much fun at Bailee's Tea party. I had Kalli's girls come and host the party along with Kelsie. They served 10 girls food and they did all the games I just assisted it was wonderful. I recommend it to any one with an 9 year old daughter, 10 and 11 year old nieces. They were great. We also had a Pinata per Bailee's request. I think it made Bailee a very happy little girl. Tonight was the close of Bailee's birthday festivities. She closed her birthday up with a day at Disneyland. So lets recap. Friday May 1st her birthday woke up to breakfast in bed and had an afternoon at California adventure with Aunt Mindy, Saturday May 2nd her tea party, Sunday May 3rd Her family party with Scott's side and my side of the family then she got to go home with grammie for a sleep over. Monday May 4th Disneyland with Michelle and Brie. And tonight her sleep over at Grammie's again. Tomorrow I will pick her up and end her celebration. Wow she is one lucky little girl. Thanks to all who helped make her birthday so fun and special.

A Fun Week!

So last week the kids and I got to spend a fun week with my sister's family while Scott was in Mammoth. While we were there we went to the YMCA body sculpting class on tuesday and thursday, I strongly recommend it, it kicks your bootie. Then we met Colleen and Carrie and Chelsea at the park for a play day on Wednesday, It was so fun to hang out. Kalli and I made dinner every night but it was nice, it is always so much easier to cook with another women and clean up. And in between all that we had breakfast one morning at the Avocado House and then Lunch one afternoon. And we just played, played, and played.

Happy 3rd Birthday Carson!

Well my baby turned 3 today. Who would have thought? It seems like just yesterday that he was just a little baby. And now he is three and POTTY TRAINED. What a great day. I am loving it. But now that he is three and potty trained he thinks he can PEE anywhere out doors. And I constantly telling him no and hurrying him to the toilet. On thursday I was cutting Kalli's hair and the kids were playing in the front yard and I walked out to check on them and lone and behold I caught the kid with his pants down peeing on the front lawn. Geez I had a talk with him and all he can say about that is WHY! WHY! WHY! So I hope he just doesn't do that anymore. Well Happy Birthday to my crazy little boy!

Easy Treat!

So today Madison and I were watching the food channel and we found a super easy recipe that we tried out tonight that was a Hit! They were called chinese donuts. You take one package of pillsbury biscuits ( not the layer biscuits) just big biscuits. You cut one layer of biscuit into four pieces and roll each piece into a ball, then you fry it and roll it in cinnamon and sugar. Its an instant donut hole. They taste like churros big hit with the kiddos.

We are on Break!

Whoo Hoo! We start our two week spring break today and we are off to a Great Start. I am watching Kalli's kids this weekend while she and Jon are out of town, she dropped them off last night. We have had so much fun so far. My kids just love it when they come to stay. They have entertained each other so far and it is great. They have played mostly outside, and when they are inside they are usually doing some type of play or show or each others hair. Well I know we will have a great vacation. I hope you all do the same. I will have to post pictures later!

I don't know what to Think!

So today I got braces on my lower teeth. I have one cricked tooth that has always bugged me, so I decided to get it fixed because we have orthodontist insurance. What was I thinking? In the long run I know it will be wonderful because I will not have any cricked teeth, but it sure is an interesting feeling I got going on in my mouth. I also think it might end up being a great diet plan, because it is not fun to eat at ALL! But it is my own fault I have them by my own choice, So I am not COMPLAINING. Have a nice night.

Six days and Counting!

So I think it might be true that Carson is fully potty trained. He has not had a accident for about six days. Whoo! Whoo! I think that is one of the greatest feelings in the world. No more Diaper buying for me unless it's for a baby shower.

Thursday, March 12, 2009

Oh, Could it be TRUE!

My darling little Carson came to me today and told me he pooped on the toilet, I ran to the bathroom and sure enough, HE DID! I was so happy. We did High Fives and I gave him his water gun. If he keeps this up he will be potty trained. It was a great day, NO ACCIDENTS! Oh and if he's potty trained that means I will never have to potty train another kid or buy diapers. Yah Me! Not to rub it in.

Day #2 of Potty Training Carson

Not as successfull, but I know it was because I was busy and not as consistent. I had to go to a few appointments and that killed it. We will try harder tomorrow. Scott actually got a taste of what it is like to potty train tonight. Carson had the #2 accident while I was gone. So I quote from Scott" I am suppose to be the one that just gives him High Fives and Candy" well now he knows what its like. Good Night!

Day #1 of Potty Training Carson

Not to bad he had a pee accident and then I think he figured out what it was all about. He did not have one pee accident after that. He even came in from playing and went on the toilet. We will see what tomorrow brings when he has to go #2. That is a whole different ball game. Pray for me okay! But I do have to let you in on a little secret.(Dum Dum suckers and skittles) He gets to pick a candy every time he pees. For # 2 he gets to pick a little toy in the $1 range. We will see if my bribery works.

My Big Boy is Getting Older!

Well I can't exactly call him my little boy, but he is getting older. He got his second stripe in Karate. And we attended the Blue and Gold dinner last night for Cub Scouts. He is so excited for when he turns eight in about 5 months. He can't wait to start cub scouts and last night made him even more excited for it. Wow I can't believe I will be having another baptism in a blink of an eye. They grow so fast. Oh well that is life, and we are living it!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Scott and I had such a great day yesterday we were able to make a trip down to the San Diego Temple. It was wonderful as always. Then we had lunch at T.G.I Fridays and it cost us a big whopping 8 bucks, because we had a buy one get one free. Can't beat that. Then later that evening we got to go to our stake valentines dance. I haven't danced so hard in years. It made me feel like I was a youth again. We should go dancing more often. Then this morning I got up early and worked at my moms restaurant until 2pm that was fun I got to see quite a few sweethearts today including a few of my dear friends. I rushed home after that and made a nice fun Valentines dinner for my family and the missionaries. I made, with the help of Scott and my sister-in-law, homemade Lasagna, Chicken Parmesan, ceasar salad and bread. It was yummy. Sorry I meant to take a picture of our cute table. Oh well Happy Valentines Day. I Love You All!
