A Special Visitor

Last evening we had a very special visitor all the way from Salt Lake City! Nick's cousin Danny came to visit. Danny drove up to WA on a spur of the moment decision and we are so happy he did! He got to meet Makenna for the first time. She LOVED him and I'm pretty sure he loved her too! She was so funny, and showed off all of her tricks for him. We went out to dinner and ice cream and we gave him a tour of Ellensburg. If you have ever been to Ellensburg you know that didn't take long at all. Nick and I really enjoyed catching up with him.
Thank you for taking the time to stop and visit us! We can't wait to see you again Danny!

Chick Days

Every year our local ranch and home store hosts chick days. They have huge tubs of baby chicks for people to buy or for people to come look at. My dad always took us as little kids so it is fun to now see my baby and her cousins get to go with Nana and Papa to chick days.
Ally was probably the most interested in the baby chicks. She was so sweet and gentle with them.
All the twerps lined up with the baby cute baby chick. The poor thing had to have been traumatized after being with these three for a couple of minutes. Like I said, Ally was sweet with it but Makenna hasn't learned how to be gentle yet and tried pulling at its feathers and its head, and Jared kept tapping its head.
We even ran into my cousin Becca and her beautiful girls Dailey and Skylee. We had fun standing in line together and visiting.
Thank you Nana and Papa for taking the kids for a fun outing!

One Talented Girl

Nick's sister Amie is a VERY talented artist. She has been taking painting lessons for few years now and it is just amazing how much better she gets with every painting. This is one of her most resent masterpieces of our beautiful little Makenna.

A fun filled weekend.

As I mentioned in the last post we went to Gig Harbor last weekend. Nick's family just got back from a trip to Disney World a few weeks ago and his siblings got mouse ears as part of their souvenirs. Makenna thought the mouse ears were toys and she played with Amie's almost all weekend.
If she didn't have mouse ears on she had a necklace on. Can you tell she is a girly girl?
Makenna enjoyed using the window sill as a bench too.
Happy Birthday to Amie! It was her 15th birthday!
See that lovely bruise on Kenna's forehead? It was previously a golf ball sized goose egg that she acquired after a run in with the hearth in front of the fireplace. It is amazing how fast little kids heal. Her poor head couldn't have felt good.
What more does a girl need when she already has an iPhone and a pretty necklace?
Playing with the birthday girl!
Grandma Sherrie took Makenna shopping. She bought her several fantastic things including her Easter dress. This is just a sneak peak. There will be better pictures of the dress closer to Easter time. Isn't it pretty?
Its hard to tell by her face in the picture but Makenna LOVED hanging out at the top of the stairs looking down at everyone and saying "hi!"
I think I've mentioned before that Makenna loves being read to. When she is being read to is about the only time she sits still these days. Here she is snuggled up with Grandma Sherrie reading one of my personal favorites, Corduroy.
There was a lot going on while we were there and Makenna didn't get good naps in. We must have really wore her out on Monday because she fell asleep eating dinner.
Thank you Sabin's for another fun filled weekend!

Playing in the Rain

Last weekend we went to visit family in Gig Harbor. We stopped at my in-laws new property and got out to play for a bit. Makenna loved running around and playing even with the cloudy weather and the rain. She was soaking wet when we put her back in the car but she couldn't have been happier.
