January Happenings

I have read on so many blogs various New Years resolutions. I have decided just to set one goal for this year and hopefully I won't get too overwhelmed with this one. I have decided to tackle food storage. The whole thing starting with 72 hour kits, water, three month supply of everyday foods and then long term storage. My grandma has lent me some great books and I have my work cut out for me. To me it just solidifies how smart the church is. Not only storing food but saving and being prepared in general. I am really excited about it right now and hopefully that does not change. McKenna has progressed so much in such a short amount of time. She is crawling everywhere now and is no longer content to stay in one room. She is talking a ton and yesterday she kept repeating yaya. She has also decided that being on the ground crawling is fun but standing up on while holding on to things is equally if not more fun. I am so thankful that I am able to stay home with her and see firsthand all of her developmental milestones. I also wanted to thank Jill Riggs, now Jill Scripps who while in town visiting her family made some time to take some pictures of McKenna and our Family I will post some of our favorites. I hope that everyone is doing well:)

Christmas Happenings 2007

Hello to everyone! I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. We were so busy during this holiday season with family coming into town. It was so much fun to see everyone, but I think McKenna is relieved to have things back to normal. McKenna was completly spoiled on Christmas Eve by her Nana and Grumpa Braegger and spoiled just as equally by us and Grandma and Grandpa Wright on Christmas Day. Great Grandma Wyand spoiled her to with these awesome bibs that cover everything, they have sleeves!! We celebrated New Years Eve with my Aunt Paula, Uncle Mike, Mandy and Avery by going to lunch at Joe's BBQ. Then my dad came into town from California and we went out to dinner that night for his birthday. We were happy to have my dad in town with us and it was great to see McKenna interact with her Grandpa McKee. McKenna is a busy bee and she actually started crawling on Friday night. She had been crawling backwards for the past month and I was so excited when she actually came towards me to retrieve a toy. Life will no longer be the same.
