In Kyndall news...and a bit of Avery and Emery too

Kyndall got her first progress report of actual grades!  I wasn't expecting real grades until 3rd grade...then this comes home for me to sign.....

Yay Kyndall!!!  She just loves school and loves learning!!!  I credit her love of learning to her amazing teachers that she HAS had and DOES have!!  Miss Carboni in Kindergarten, Mrs. Cummings in 1st and of course, Ms. Ulmer in 2nd!!  I'm posting this so we will always remember her very first grades were all A's!!!

She has joined Girl Scouts with a wonderful group of girls and their troop leaders are the best ever!!!!  Here was the special ceremony where they got their vests and were "baked" into brownies!!

I also want to document our Rainbow loom fad.  Bracelets made out of looping tiny rubberbands!!!  I'm addicted too..what can I say, any kind of craft sucks us Kelly girls in!!!

We took all three girls to McKinney's Oktoberfest!!!  So much fun:)
Life is good and we are savoring every moment with our 3 girls!!!

Big girl Playdate

Have I mentioned we live in an AMAZING neighborhood?  Lots of kids to play with all the time!!  Our neighbors ROCK!  After school today the kids ran off the bus and into our house...5 including my 2 big kids:). Anyway, so my neighbor has a little girl 5 months younger than Emery.  They are becoming fast friends!  Emery went to her friend Alli's house to play...without me:). First play date...I think she had fun!  Love my little one:)

The wheels on the bus....

  You're singing it aren't you!  You are welcome...that song will be stuck in your head all day now:). 
Kyndall and Avery joined the Cascades Bus Crew this morning!!

Cute group of kiddos right?  Jim walked the girls down and apparently they both did good, but Avery was a little on the nervous side:). Thank goodness she was surrounded by her sister and friends!!  Here are the rest of the photos Jim took:

Here's to another great day of school!!!  Yesterday was awesome and the girls both were up early this morning excited to go back!!!  Makes my heart smile:)

2nd Grade and Kindergarten here we go!!

Here we go!!  It was a fairly smooth morning (Ave did NOT want to wake up that early, and neither did Emery), and we left them at school both smiling!!  Avery had a nervous smile, and Kyndall had a "I'm sitting next to my best friend this is a piece of cake" smile!!  Emery is enjoying my full attention (minus this quick post) and the house is sooooo quiet!!

I'm back! Hiatus ended:)

I've had trouble keeping up with my blog while chasing around my 3 amazing kiddos...took a break, now I'm back...short and sweet posts from now on:)
It's back to school time for Kyndall:
*2nd grade

*got in the same class as her bestie Kate Garland and all her neighbors on our street that we love...Georgia and Paige!!

Avery is going to school:
* Mrs. Cross
* in same class as my sorority sister's daughter from Texas Tech (sweet new friends)

Emery is just growing and making us smile:). No school for her...I'm keeping her all to myself...except for bible study 2x a week:). Here are some recent pics of her:
*21 months old
* loves shoes, her sisters, donuts, and has sweet baby friends...she's a riot

Jim is working hard and I am gearing up for  both big girls going to elementary school...I'm ready, I think:)

Oh and if you didn't know, we got a pool...we love it, it made our summer awesome!!!
Did I mention the whole family loves it?  Even Mae dog!!

Oops! Oct. Nov. Dec. in review....

We have been doing a lot lately....Let's start with OCTOBER:

Emery Turned 1!!

Grammy Garth came to visit and met Emery for the first time...we had so much fun with Grammy and Grammie!!!

Halloween came and I took the girls to Scare on the Square...Avery was a cowgirl dancer, Kyndall was a gold medal gymnast and Emery was a ladybug (that was Kyndall's first halloween costume)

Uncle Paul (Jim's Brother) got married to Lauren and the girls were flower girls in the wedding!  We are so excited to have her in our family!!
Avery had a sweet Thanksgiving program I got to go to!
We have been saving/planning on moving the summer before Kyndall goes into 2nd grade/Avery goes to Kindergarten.  Well, we found this house and decided it was perfect for our family, so we bought it and moved in about 6 months sooner than planned.  We are only 6 minutes away from the old house and neighborhood but we are settling in and enjoying a little more space!

This is the house we moved from....Jim and I bought it the first year we got married 8 years ago.  Three kids, 8 years, and a dog later has enticed us to move.  We'll miss our old place, but we love being in the new one!  The sad part is, we were so busy moving and doing Christmas activities I never got Christmas cards done:(  First year since Kyndall was born!  Oh well, I will try next year!
Avery had her first recital!  So she is with Ava (left) and Lily.  They pretty much stood up there and smiled, but they were SUUUUUPER cute!
Santa was at the is the only Kelly girl who likes him:

He had to photo bomb Avery...and Em just wasn't having any of it....I think she was hungry and tired!  BTW:  you need to know that Avery had no idea Santa came in the picture until we showed this to her later!!!

Christmas Eve, Snowflake, our Elf on the Shelf left the girls matching PJ's and a new movie to watch in our new movie room.  They loved it.  I know Santa and Elves are somewhat debate-able about whether you are "lying" to your children about actual Christmas happenings.  But the excitement in their eyes as they find the Elf each morning and come down and see what "santa" brought them is worth it...I dread the day that innocence is gone.  Even though they enjoy Santa things if you ask them what Christmas is they will tell you it is Jesus' Birthday.  As long as they know that, the extra magic is still fun to do:)

And....the finale:
in McKinney Texas!!!!
You better believe that in our stuffed up noses and completely hoarse voices, the big girls and I had a MAJOR snowball fight.  I loved it because they were such good sports and did a great job on making their own snowballs.  I pegged them pretty hard a couple of times and they just laughed and got me right back!! 
Now we are ready for the new year....and hopefully I'll be better about updating the blog more!

Kyndall's Fun Run

Last Friday, Kyndall had her annual Boosterthon Fun Run/ Walkathon.  It is super cute.  Parents pledge $ per lap and kids run laps for an hour and earn money for Mooneyham and their own classroom.  Kyndall LOVES it and we LOVE cheering her on.  Even her sweet Daddy took an hour off of work to come and watch....we love him.  Kyndall ran 29 laps!  Wow, what a champ...she barely walked...that girl is way more athletic than I could ever hope to be:)  She must get it from her Daddy....
On our way....
Avery and I were watching and cheering... 
Kyndall was waiting to run... 
Here she goes folks!!! 
Daddy and Emery cheering K on! 
She was proud!! 
Avery loves her big sis...she made her stop during the run and hug her...of course she did
We are so proud of our sweet 1st grader and how enthusiastically she does everything!!!  Go Kyndall:)
