September 29

Plenty of things happened on September 29. Here is a list of a few historical events:

The Scotland Yard was formed in 1829.
The cornerstone is laid for the Washington National Cathedral in Washington DC in 1907.
Radio is first used in a presidential campaign in 1936.
For you baseball fans, S.F. Giants outfielder Willie Mays caught a fly ball over his shoulder, one of the most recognized catches in baseball history. (Sorry, I had to relate something in sports)
NASA starts up its space shuttle flights following the Challenger disaster in 1988.

While these are all nice things to have happened, the greatest piece of history happened in Hopkins, Minnesota. Those that were alive might have thought it was an ordinary day, but it was a day that changed my life forever. Yes, this is Brett taking over Kelly's blog once again. And yes, that means that it is Kelly's Birthday. In 1977, a little girl named Kelly Lynn White was born to Jim and Kathy White. She was 7 lbs. 4 oz. and about 19 inches long. She was the first of four children born to them. Now, 32 years later, she is the wonderful mother of three children. I was lucky enough to first date her seven years ago, and have enjoyed the last six as her husband. She is such a wonderful wife and mother. She teaches me something new each and every day. I am so glad that I got to keep her for time and all eternity. I love you very much, Kelly! I hope you have a wonderful day!




Prices in 1977:
Bread-$0.32/loaf
Milk-$1.44/gallon
Eggs-$1.30/dozen
Car-$5,814
Gas-$0.64/gallon
Home-$54,200

Until next year, I bid the readers adieu.

Officially DEAD

Well it looks like my crappy camera is officially dead. This is good news and bad news. Good news is now it I might as well get a nice one this time around, one that I like and will hopefully last a little longer. Bad news is that I lost all of the pictures from Will's Birthday (that I was going to post tonight) which makes me very very sad and I made a really cute meal planning book that I was going to show a picture of as well. Also we don't have a whole heck of a lot of money right now, so I am not sure when we are going to be able to afford one. SIGH! So if anyone know of any good deals on any good cameras LET ME KNOW!

Happy Birthday William!!!



I know it's a Christmas picture, but he looks so flippin cute in his Santa outfit that I couldn't resist. Happy Birthday my sweet William. Love this kid so much. He is my little helper, he has been so great since Jenna has been born and actually feel sometimes like maybe I expect him to do more than a little 5 year old should do, but he is always willing to help! I love how he loves to play with his sister! I love that he is so passionate about the things that he loves. Star Wars, legos, coloring! Hope you have a great birthday kid!

Busy Week

Well we had a very busy and exciting week. First on Tuesday it was Will and Kyanna's first day of preschool. Kyanna was so so excited that she finally gets to go to preschool like her brother. All last year that is all that she wanted to do. We are lucky enough to have a Joy School that we are doing so Will and Kyanna are going to be in the same class and even more exciting is that for two months of the year I will get to be their teacher. I think it will be so much fun!
First day of Preschool!
Then later that night Will started T-ball. So much fun! Even more exciting is that Brett gets to be his coach. Ha ha for Brett though is that the team is the Boston Red Sox not great for a Yankee fan, I think it's fantastic though! Especially if we end up going to a Red Sox game for the reunion next year. It was cute to watch and it will be fun to see how much more improved Will will be this year from last year.
Hey at least he isn't picking his nose this year!
Then on Wednesday we went to a awesome museum called the Treehouse Museum with my Sister-in-law Steph and the kids cousin Dallin. It was so great because it's much like the museum downtown but much much cheaper. Unfortunately it was way up in Ogden, so it won't be something that we will be doing to terribly often but definetly again.

And even us parents were able to get out and have some fun this weekend. We went to the Jon Schmidt concert with Nate and Nancy down at Thanksgiving Point, kind of pre-birthday outing for me! It was so fun and he is fantastic! The weather was great, no kids, music was great, really couldn't ask for much more!

Waiting for the concert to start, it was soooo crowded.

Then today poor little Jenna hasn't been feeling great and this morning I noticed white little dots inside her cheeks so I took her to the Kids Care and sure enough she has thrush! She is the first of my kids to have this and let me tell you I am not loving it, I feel so bad for her. Hopefully she will start feeling better soon. And that about sums up our busy week!
