To Grandma's house we go...

Where did the weekend go?  It's always nice to travel and see family, but it's also nice to get home and sleep in our own beds!  I miss the days when Kyla would sleep in the pack and play and not know any better.

She had fun with Grandma though and her new toys!


Daddy's so much fun!

We also got to visit Great Grandma Alice and Great Grandpa Gib.  Let me just tell you, they are two of the most amazing people I've ever met.  Grandpa is 92 and Grandma is 89, they've been married 65ish years and still going strong!  And I swear they act like they're kids.  Grandpa is a story teller and was telling Kyla stories today from when he was 7 years old!  And Grandma just cracks me up.  She's a jokester.  From the very first time I met them (about 8 years ago now), we always went over there for breakfast.  Grandma would make us eggs and Grandpa would always go to the store and get me a fresh cinnamon roll.  Sure enough, we show up today and there was my roll!  I love them so much!  I think seeing Kyla today made their day and seeing them play with her made mine :)

She wasn't sure about Grandma's singing reindeer though.

 And of course we can't come home from Grandma's without a new wardrobe :)

 PJ's included

This is actually the first year I've been excited about Halloween.  I've never really been one to dress up.  And I'm not dressing up this year either, but I'm just so excited to dress Kyla up (even if it's a boring pumpkin).  She will be the cutest damn pumpkin out there!  It's fun to start family traditions.  Holidays are more special with her.  Actually, life is just so much better with her!


  1. I know exactly what you mean about holidays just being more special with the little ones! more magical as well!! I can't wait to start more and more traditions with my little guy as he gets older. It looks like they are only a few days apart! how cute.

    Also, looking forward to some pumpkin halloween pics. I love little babies in costumes. It is my favorite.

  2. Oh my, can she be *my* Grandma?! I would love a new wardrobe too! hehe Love all the clothes---especially the little penguin pjs!

  4. Amy, that's so special that Kyla gets to spend time with her great grandparents! Those pictures are precious and something she will always have to treasure! :)
