Christmas 2010





So Christmas was wonderful around the Kneeland home. The kids got overly spoiled like always, we think we don't get much and then we actually did and then Aunt Mindy adds to the pile and it's too much! Oh well the kids loved it. Santa brought Kelsie a new top of the line blow dryer and salon shampoo and conditioner, Logan got a new puppy that the whole family loves, Bailee got a new American girl doll( now Lanie has a friend) she named her Lily, and Carson got Light sabers and a iron man remote control robot. They were very Happy kids. Don't worry about Kelsie I know it doesn't sound exciting but she also got a new snowboarding helmet bindings and boots she just got those early so she could use them last week when we went snowboarding and she loves them and Kelsie being Kelsie she loved the blow dryer and shampoo. We are all very blessed and have really enjoyed this Christmas with family and friends. Here are some pictures to!

Christmas!

I can not believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Crazy! Time just goes by to quick! I feel like it should just be Halloween, then Thanksgiving went whoosh and now here is Christmas. Then on to a New Year. Crazy! The stores already have Valentines Day up. This world just makes everything go much quicker now days. I wish life wasn't so rushed. I would like to just kick back and enjoy the ride. Wow! I am getting old! Well Merry Christmas everyone. It will come back around before we know it.

Hello!



Hello Blog sorry I have been so bad at posting! Well since I last posted (which was at Halloween) we have had Thanksgiving which was crazy and hectic. My Grandma Smith passed away the Friday before Thanksgiving so all plans went BYE BYE! We were suppose to have Thanksgiving here with Scott's Family, we still did but it was held on Tuesday then Tuesday night we all left to go to St. George for the funeral on Wednesday. It was nuts! Scott was so sweet for working with all the changes. The funeral went very nice. My Grandma is a Great women. Such a wonderful example to me and my children she will be missed dearly. Then we had Thanksgiving on Thursday with the Smith family, I believe there was ninety of us. Always makes for an exciting party. My Best Friend Jani let us crash at her house, I love staying with her we have so much fun talking , laughing, crying(because we were laughing so hard) She is wonderful and our kids get along Great! Then Friday night we celebrated Kelsie's 11th Birthday wowwee I am getting old next year I will have a Young Women. We then woke up and came home Saturday morning. So after this busy week I have been so looking forward to Christmas Break for a real Break! Now I only have 5 days left and I can't wait for the break. We are not going on any trips and I am so excited to just be home with my family! Yeah! Well that's all 4 now. Later!

I Have to Share!




So I have been contemplating preschool for Carson I have been working with him but he gets so bored with just me. (I didn't want to pay $180 dollars a month for him to go to preschool either, when I knew I could teach him what he needs to know.) (He is a mama's boy even though he is a tough and crazy boy.) Well so anyways yesterday I went and looked into the preschool through the school district. Of course we did not qualify for free preschool but she said he could attend for pay. She proceeded to tell me that there was not any openings till January when they opened the new preschool class at Monte Vista which just happens to be my kids elementary school right around the corner from my house. SCORE! Then she told me I would need to pay a $50 dollar registration fee I said ok. Then she said it would be $98 dollars and I said a month and she said no $98 dollars for January through June I said Sweet! Then I said is it three days a week she said no it is Monday through Friday from 9-12. I don't know if there was anything that could have made for a better morning. So needless to say Carson will start preschool in January 5 days a week! This will be so good for him. What a blessing to me to that I can afford it. Now he will have a lot of friends and a way to get rid of all that energy. Thanks MVUSD!

Are you KIDDING ME!

So Carson was upstairs playing this afternoon and he said he was building a track for his cars, So I went upstairs to check it out. His track consisted of one laundry basket of clean clothes and two baskets of dirty clothes all mixed together. NICE! Well he had also heard me coming and he was nice enough to put them all back in the baskets. Needless to say I had three new baskets of laundry to do. He is such a nice helpful caring boy!AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH! I Love Him!

A Weekend with These Two Guys!


So this weekend we get to have Wyatt and Shane for the weekend. We are so lucky. They both say the funniest things and they are so easy to please. Ever since Shane got to stay a few days at my house Wyatt has been dying to stay. So with this weekend being a slow weekend with not much happening I invited them. It is perfect because then I can give Chelsea a little more recovery time from just having the twins. I can't wait till I can have Harley and Riley come and stay, that will be so fun. They are already so sweet! Well off to a fun weekend with the boys. Later!

Past Summer Fun!






So this past summer we got to go to Pismo Beach with our family my sisters family Landon, Wyatt, Shane and my parents came up for 2 days one night. I hope we are able to make this a tradition. I loved it! It was amazing I didn't even care about being in a tent on an air mattress with all my kids and my husband. Something about the beach just is so relaxing I could have stayed the whole summer. Well here are a few pix for you to enjoy!

So we had a great summer. I don't have any idea where it went? We are now back in school and I am home all day everyday with Carson. We have a great time together. I am working on preschool stuff with Carson and he is catching on pretty good. We have been in school just about a month. Kelsie loves being a sixth grader in middle school she things she is a teenager BUT SHE IS NOT! Logan Loves his teacher in 4th grade he has Mr. Byrnes who was also Kelsie's fourth grade teacher. Bailee is loving 1 st grade she has Mrs. Smith who is the perfect first grade teacher. She looks like a disney princess. She is perfect in every way. So here are some pictures we took of there fierst day of school right before we left the house Enjoy! P.S. I will try to update much more often!

Pretty Nice MOM!

So today Kelsie had five of her girlfriends come over from school. It is so funny to watch little girls. They are all in the fifth grade and they are all so giggly two of the five are staying the night. The other girls have sports tomorrow. A few of the moms have asked me if it is Kelsie's Birthday. And I said NO. They think I am crazy! I think it's just good memories for Kelsie. They are such a nice polite group of giggly girls. It cracks me up to watch and listen to them. They think I am the best, they had pizza for dinner, then popcorn, then they made brownies. They had brownies and ice cream. Now they are up stairs doing each others hair. Oh what it would be like to have there energy and goofiness again. A bonus was my wonderful sister in law came and picked up Logan and Bailee so they are not here to bug the girls all night. Carson is just doing his own thing it's great!

Retainers!

So I now understand why I should have gotten a permanent retainer. I don't mind wearing it in the day but the freedom to take it out is just to nice. Having a piece of plastic in your mouth at bedtime stinks. But no worries I keep it in because I want my teeth to stay straight.But this retainer thing does bug!

Wednesday, March 3, 2010

YEAH!

After one year of having Braces, I got them off yesterday! Freedom! I would not wish them upon anybody. But they were worth it I now have straight bottom teeth to match my straight top teeth. I will let you know what I think about the retainer when I get it Tuesday!

Field Trip Week!






So this week we got home from Utah on Monday the kids went back to school Tuesday and by Tuesday night I was going on a field trip with Logan on Wednesday to the Santa Rosa Plateau and on Thursday with Kelsie to the Eastern Municipal Water District. And now tomorrow it is already going to be Friday, What the heck Where did this week go?????? Well on Wednesday at the Santa Rosa Plateau we got to go on a hike and learn about grasslands, birds, animals and plants and granite. It was interesting and a beautiful day to be hiking. Logan was so glad I was on the field trip with him he kept telling me thanks for coming. Poor neglected kid! Usually all the other parents have first dibs, I guess I am doing something right this year. And today Oh today! I got to go see how they clean up all the water that goes down the toilet, through the washing machine, through the dishwasher and from your yard. WOW!That was crazy everyone should have to experience that once and it would make you be a little better. Talk about a lot of CRAP! Literally! But the good thing is they don't let anyone drink it even though it ends up clear again they use it in the purple pipes at parks and on medians and stuff! I will spare you the yuck of it and just post pictures of the Santa Rosa Plateau! Enjoy Oh and by the way Kelsie was also very grateful that I was able to go with her to. And thanks to my dear friends for watching Carson while I went with my older Kiddos!
