Sleep hasn’t been going too great around our house lately and this is how I found James and Kennedy this morning when I got out of the shower!


Gingerbread house decorating

Sunday we had fun decorating a gingerbread house! I think this will definitely have to turn into a new family tradition!

Here’s the final product!

Thanksgiving Weekend

We had a busy Thanksgiving weekend that started with us heading to Kewanee… via Krispy Kreme and Chick-fil-a!

Thanksgiving morning we headed to Solon, IA for the Davis family Thanksgiving! This was also Kennedy’s first time in a new state!

After Thanksgiving we went back to Kewanee and had fun relaxing and helping Grandma to set-up her Christmas tree!

I think Grandpa and Grandma also really enjoyed us being there visiting!

On our way home we stopped in Bloomington to visit with Great-Grandpa and Grandma Jones!

Daddy and Kennedy

It’s always so sweet when Daddy spends some time with Kennedy! They definitely have a good time playing together!


And Daddy is pretty comfy for a nap as well!


I don’t think this little girl could get much cuter than this!


Fun in the bath

Kennedy still isn’t quite sure what to think of the bathtub, but it’s definitely a lot better when big sister holds her hand!


Play time

Reagan really enjoys playing with her baby sister!

What a cutie!

One decision can change a lot

Exactly one year ago today I made the decision to come home early from a conference. Almost exactly nine months later we were blessed with this little girl.

Kennedy is everything we didn’t even know was missing from our family and it’s amazing how unexpectedly your life can change in one year. ❤️


Friday night we decided to go to Fuji (aka the baby steak place) for dinner! It was the first time that we’ve been there since Kennedy was super small and it was pretty cool to see her reaction to everything!


Kennedy was actually really good and totally fascinated by everything! She sat on Daddy’s lap and just watched everything!


Wow! Yesterday James showed me a set of $20 Amazon brand steak knives that I was fine with. Then today he surprises me with a set of Wusthof knives… the really good kind!!
