Kendra Leaves

Glad we could be there when Kendra got set apart to be a missionary!

We got to say goodbye one last time before she headed off to the airport.

These two little ones are going to look completely different when she gets back in 18 months.

He really likes being outside.

Pretending to take pictures with the lens cap as a pretend camera.

Running through people's yards on our walk.

She loves to play with the rocks in people's yards.

Score..... she chased this kitty until he was too tired to run from her anymore.

On the coolest backyard swing set ever.

She is pretty obsessed with playing with yard statues. We were talking to our neighbors at Christmas time and they were telling how they were creeped out to find that their Vigin Mary and other statues were constantly being moved around their yard. (Hailey wanted the boy statue to be near the Mary statue.) My neighbor thought maybe a spirit was moving them or it was some sort of sign from above. They were relived to hear it was just Hailey getting into their yard.

Hailey has been playing with the ash below our charcoal barbeque pit so we decided to get her a sandbox to play in instead.

So far she is delighted and it's going to be lots of fun. We made sure to get a sandbox with a top so neighborhood cats can't use it as a litter box.

My sister Lauren gave me this super awesome kit to grow different kinds of sprouts to eat.

Soak them for 8 hours in water, put them in these special trays, and watch them grow.

This is day 1. They take 4 days to grow and I will post pictures later when they are done growing. Sprouts are super healthy. They will be great in soups, salads, sandwiches, and in egg dishes. So exciting.... I love plants!

Little Chunkster is outgrowing the baby bath tub..... that makes me a little sad.

This little boy loves to splash..... I almost always have to use the mop to clean up all the water he gets on the floor.
