First Day of 1st grade

Reese started 1st grade on Monday and she was VERY excited. She was excited about her new Justin Bieber bookbag, and her icarly lunch box, but what she was really excited about was seeing her best friend, Alexis and giving her a best friend necklace. Reese had a great 1st day and is glad not to be "a kindergarten baby" (these were her words) anymore. Trevor and I can't believe that our little Reesey Pie is in first grade, time sure does go by fast. :(

Happy Birthday, Reese and Tatum!

This year, Reese wanted to invite friends from school to her party so we decided on a bowling party. Reese and Tatum had such a great time especially with all of their friends. I had a great time too since there was no mess for me to clean up afterward!

What a surprise - SNOW! When the party started, light snow had started to fall. Just a couple hours later and a ride home, this is what it was like outside. We ended up getting 6 inches
(i think) or at least pretty close to it! This was the first time it had ever snowed on the day of their party but they liked it, even though they couldn't ride their new scooter and tricycle.

Valentine's Day project

Since it was another snow day today, Carter and Gillian came over. Reese has been bugging me to do a project so I decided today was the day. We made crayon hearts! Reese is going put them in tiny boxes and give them to her class as her valentines.

Our dogs, Blue and Nutmeg

This was the first year that Blue has ever seen snow and we couldn't get him to come inside. He LOVED it!! It was fun to watch him run around and act crazy in the snow. Now if we just had a sled and harness, he could take us for a ride. Maybe next year. :)

Reese thought it would be fun to dress up Nutmeg. Nutmeg didn't mind a bit and she even sat still for pictures. I love that Reese put bow clips on her ears to make earrings.

Winter Family Pictures

We had our family pictures taken a couple of weeks ago. I know I posted a bunch but it was just so hard to decide and there were so many to choose from. I'm so glad I chose to do Christmas pictures outside, even though we all were cold. I think they turned out great!

We were going to have our pictures taken ice skating but Reese was too cold and frozen and just couldn't take any more pictures.

Happy Halloween....a little late

Friday, July 30, 2010


I have been trying to upload a video for a few days now but for some reason it just won't work. So, I decided I would just post some cute misc pics from the last couple of weeks.

On July 4th, I was honored to witness the birth of James Mitchell King. He was born at 6:36 am and weighed a whopping 9lbs 12ozs and was 22 inches long. Thanks to Rachel and Dan for letting me share in their special moment with them. Love you guys!

The King Family

Happy 4th of July!!

We recently discovered that Blue loves water. This was the day before school started and Reese decided that she wanted to go swimming with Blue, so they did. Reese went down the slide 4,387 times and blue would splash water everywhere by digging in the pool. Reese loved it!

We were all dressed up in our North Caroling gear to attend a double graduation party for Michael, who graduated high school and is going to University of Arkansas and Jen, who graduated from Mizzou with a Masters in Accountancy (and who also passed the first 3 parts of the CPA on her first try. She is taking the last part today - Good Luck, Jen!!). It was a theme party, College days come and gone. You could dress up or wear your favorite college colors. So it was obvious what we were all going to wear!

Jen having a great time at her party wearing her Mizzou toga which unraveled and fell apart the more she drank.

I love this picture for 2 reasons:
1. it shows how curly her hair is (although it is hard to really see it in front of the dark couch.)
2. it is one of the very, very few pictures where she is smiling. she just started this new smile and saying either "cheeeeessse" or "cheeeeseeeburger".
