Did you ever wonder how it would feel to see and talk to your parents multiple times in a day and for them to never mention that it would be there Grand Daughter's First Birthday?

I can't let it bother me...I won't let them bring me down. But why do they not realize it hurts me? Have they forgotten The Girls/My Daughters/There Grand Daughters? I wish I understood them...I do not...I never will!

Other than that I have had a wonderful day! I am really looking forward to Saturday. On Saturday I will get to see all of the people that have sent me messages and called and carried/thought about us today.

Thank You - Blog Friends and Real Life Friends you mean the world to us!

Happy Birthday My Sweet Girls - Day One!

So like most crazy Americans, or women in general, I believe birthdays should be celebrated for DAYS!
This morning Mr.K and I started The Girls Birthday Celebration! We lit a candle for each girl at the moment they were born one year ago! It has been a pretty peaceful so far, we have had a couple calls and texts from friends and family and a really nice card arrived in the mail from a dear friend. When it gets a little cooler this evening we plan on heading out to the cemetery to just sit for a bit. But for now the candles will have to do...

Happy Birthday My Sweet Girls, we Love and Miss you both so very much!
Thank You Carly for Adison and Lillian's Name's in the sand, we love them!

So two of my favorite people in the world, I know I have mentioned before, are B & D. Mr. K and I had not heard much from them in the past few months and we were realy starting to get worried, but we chalked it up to them beeing busy...we were wrong!

Today, out of the blue, I got a text message from B saying he needed to tell me something and it was going to make me mad...I didn't like the sound of that and imideatly I got anxious! Turns out B has been pretty unhapy with life in general for a year or so now and he saw therapist but it did not really help. And a week after we visited in June he moved out, they have filed for divorce and it will be finall in November. He even appologized for not calling or texting he just did not know how to tell me, or anyone for that matter. I fell so bad for him/her/them!

Do you ever wish you have something completly profound to say when some one tells you something like that? I do! I know people wish the same when I tell them about the girls. I just wish I could have said something wonderful today! All I could say was, "I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers", and that seams so cheasy now! In the back of my mind I had a billion other things I wanted to say, but I couldn't! I am completly shocked!

Old Friends are New Friends

Mr. K and I grew up with a good friend, we will call him Big K. He was crazy and always a LOT of fun! He even tried to set Mr. K and I up on several occasions, he saw something long before we did! A few years after high school he joined the marines and I wish I could say we kept in touch but the truth is we really did not. Occasionally we would hear news from other mutual friends, and even less we would randomly run in to him.
A while later he married another friend from high school. And they had a beautiful little girl, whom we meet just a few days after her birth. Shortly after they relocated to San Diego and we really lost touch.
Last week when Mr. K was on his way home from work he swore he saw him. And later that night he saw the car he thought Big K was driving at his parents house. Big K grew up on the street we now live and his parents still do live here. So later that night we sent an email to see if they were here visiting and if we could get together for dinner. Almost immediately we got a response and found out that they had moved back! I can't tell you how excited Mr. K was! BigK was one of his best friends and over the past few years he really has lost touch with all of them, not on purpose but I guess sometimes that just happens!
The funniest part is they have been living with his parents for about 3 months, a block away from us, and we never new it!
It has been really nice to have a friend right down the block to hang out with and I am pretty sure we have seen them every night this week.
Threw the rumor mill they had heard we were expecting the girls and I think the hardest part of our renewed friendship was having to tell them that we had lost them. I was really worried about it, but they have been amazing! They were concerned for us and the girls, they don't change the subject if the girls or my pregnancy comes up. And for the first visit, wanting to be understanding, they left their 5 month old son with Grandma. Yesterday afternoon when they came down to play, MommaK and I visited about our pregnancies and she was so nice and understanding and never looked uncomfortable, she was only concerned for us.
I am unbelievably excited to have a new friend and even more so that she lets me share with her!
I know that I can share with any of you at any time, but some how this fells different. I guess it is because they were not here when I was pregnant and a lot of what we have been sharing is about my actual pregnancy, it is like we are comparing notes or something.
In the last few years I have realized how important it is to have good friends and especially those that accept you as you are. I am certain this is going to be a great and long friendship!


Mr. K and I live in a medium size city, I guess. But this morning there was a shooting and a police officer was killed. My first reaction was to make sure that our good friend was safe, a quick check of his FB status told me so, but I still had concerns for the fallen officer and family.
A few hours later, when I was leaving the house, I realized the officer is my neighbor.
My heart sank, there must have been 30 officers in the street and yards near his home, most consoling one another and looking shocked. This is only the forth officer killed in the line of duty in our city's history. We only know the officer and his family from passing and a short hello once or twice. But I still feel horrible for his wife and two children.
So I am asking you all for prayers for this family. I know they have a very rough road ahead of them. I wish there was more I could do for them, and there might be, but as we all know prayers are important.

Mr. & Mrs. Hall

One year ago today, Mr. K and I said...I do!
A lot of things have changed, but one thing has remained the same...I love him more than I ever imagined I could! He is my best friend and I couldn't live with out him.

In honor of our anniversary I thought I would share a few of my favorite pictures of our weeding with you.

And I'm not sure why but everyone LOVES this picture!

OK, it is pretty funny!
This Morning Mr. K completely tricked me and said we were going to run an errand for him for work and took me to brunch at Brady's Landing, where we got married! They have a GREAT Sunday Brunch, although I may have had one to many Mimosa's, we had a wonderful! I took a few pictures on my phone so bare with me...

And considering that they are located directly on the ship chanel, there grounds always look so pretty, had it not been so darn hot I think I would have talked Mr. K into a walk around the grounds, but when we left just after 1pm it was already 99ยบ, so we didn't!
Any way I had a really nice day and I have to say, I am very thankful for our life together!

I just remembered...we have cake in the freezer! I'm going to have to get it out and let it thaw, I guess we can have it for breakfast! I will let you know how it goes!

I just thought I would put up a little update...
I really have gotten the hang of this whole PhotoShop thing, at least the basics I think! But I have been having all sorts of fun playing with my blog, but then I guess you know that already! I'll try not to change it for a few days, promise!
Any-Who I put all the invitations for the Girls Birthday Party in the mail this morning, and I feel really good about it! I think it is all coming together, I hope at least!
And..I got a part time job! I'm working from home and I start tomorrow! I am really excited and I can't wait!
WooWhoo! Things are looking up!

We are having a party!

Mr. K & I have been debating about having a Birthday party for the girls for over a month and last week we decided to do it! I am so excited! I haven't been this excited in a long time!
I have been teaching myself photo shop and I thought what better way then to make the invitation! I had a blast, doing it! I thought I would share it!

I did not really say anything to anyone, except Lola about doing it (I only had about a million questions to ask her - Thanks Again!) I figured it was just our thing! But I left one of the invitations on the coffee table and when my mom came over she saw it and so then I had to let the cat out of the bag, so to speak. So I figured why not tell Mom and Dad! They will be excited right...WRONG! They apparently will be in Georgia, that weekend!

Oh well! I am determined not to let it up set me! I can not keep letting them upset me! I just need to do my thing, and do it for me! And if they can not understand that...that is there problem.

So I am really looking forward to having this party! My plan is to have a balloon release at the cemetery and then to come to our house for dinner and games. We are only inviting a few close friends and family and I relay like it that way. I like the idea of it just being a simple and fun way for us to remember the girls!
But I still have lots of planning to do!
And Just in Case - I used the Shabby Princess, Prmoise Collection, March 2008, for the invitation!

Father's Day Gift

I meant to post this weeks ago, over a month ago but for some reason I'm just doing it now!

Back before Fathers Day, when Mr. K and I were traveling like Crazy people! I was on the find the perfect gift Mr.K for Father's Day.
In all my searching I came across Karie at CreationsByKJ, she was wonderful to work with and she made this beautiful tag for Mr. K.

It arrived while we were gone and Ashley hid it in the spare room when she came to check the mail. I knew as soon as I opened the package I would have to give it to him, so I just handed him the whole thing a few days before!

He LOVES it! I can count on one hand all the times he has taken it off. He has never been much on jewelry...the only other thing he wares is his wedding band! But I just thought I would share! Hope everyone is having a Happy Monday!

This is my Dad...

Have you met him? It is a possibility for some of you, but for most of you it is not! My Dad has this way about him, he is really nice to random strangers. He goes out of his way for co-workers, and some times family and friends. Many people say he is a great guy. He is a Texas "Good Ol' Boy", even though he was born and raised in Tennessee.
If you know my Dad you know he can easily be horrible! Horrible to anyone and everyone! But especially to his children, and those that he considers his. I'm guessing he thinks of it as tough love...but to us it is anything but love! It is so hard to be his child, you never know how he will react...nothing ever happens the same way twice! NOTHING!

When Mr. K and I told him I was pregnant. He ignored me, he didn't acknowledge it for two weeks. Not until we were furniture shopping for him a new recliner. He kept sitting down in the different chairs and making these funny movements he would say "this could work" or "no this won't work". When Mom finally asked him what he was doing he said, "well I'm going to need room to hold two babies!" From then on out he couldn't stop talking about them!

Last week he got angry at my uncles birthday dinner. So angry that he got up and left, forcing my mother to go with him. He got angry at Mr. K, for nothing! He didn't talk to me for three days.

This is not the first time. It won't be the last time! I just wish I understood him. I wish I could help him with his anger issues.

And I hope more than anything they are not hereditary.
I am very angry at him today, as you can probably tell! I love my Dad, I just need to get this off my chest!
