A Little Update

I am so sorry I have fallen behind once again. Every time I sit down to write here, something else grabs my attention and pulls me away. Things have been busy here as usual. The kids are officially on Thanksgiving break, which is nice! Sadly we're not going to have a lazy week like I had looked forward to. Kennedy has two pre-op appointments on Monday - one with her pediatrician to clear her for surgery and another with her ophthalmologist to just make sure everything is status quo. Wednesday is her surgery day. I'm not sure what time yet, I guess they'll call me the day before to let me know. Kass and Kam also have dentist appointments on Monday so it's going to be busy busy!

It has been COLD here in Colorado Springs! The kids got a two hour delay at school on Friday due to icy roads and really should have had one Thursday as well. The roads were SCARY and I never did get Kameron to school. His school is across town and up a big hill. I had visions of us sliding off the road. When I checked the news and saw how many cars actually were doing just that, I knew we made the right call. He enjoyed his two days off, and thankfully because all his assignments are online, he didn't miss much.

Kennedy and Keeghan had Thanksgiving celebrations at school on Friday. Keeghan's class did a full on feast with turkey and all the fixins ;). Kennedy's class did a pie tasting party. They had 14 different kinds of pie and LOTS of whipped cream to go around! Kennedy's favorite was the chocolate pie... the girl loves her sugar! :)

 Whipped cream - yum! LOL 

Last night Kennedy's dance studio went to a local mall and performed for the "arrival of Santa". It was fun but OH so crowded!! We were thinking we'd stay so she and Keeghan could see Santa but after we saw the line we nixed that idea. They'll have plenty of other opportunities to see him over the next month. 

About a week ago, Keeghan started taking karate classes. There is a class that meets right at his elementary school, so it's convenient and so far he loves it! He earned his white belt the first night and his instructor told him that he'd earn his black belt by the time he's 11! HA! Keeghan is counting down the days years. ;) 

Kass and Kam are doing well. They are both enjoying school (Kam more than Kass lol) and getting good grades. They are excited for Christmas and can't wait for my mom to get here. I am not even CLOSE to being done shopping for Christmas presents, but I'm getting there... slowly. 

We did family pictures a couple weeks ago. I have seen a preview but haven't seen them all yet. As soon as I get the disk, I will share, of course! Here's one of my favorites for now.

I guess that's it for now. I'll update again soon... if not before, then after Kenn's surgery for sure!

That picture of Kennedy sticking out her tongue for the whipped cream? Hilarious!!

I love the family photo too! Hope Kennedy's surgery goes off without a hitch. Happy Thanksgiving!

Has the makings for a long winter! That last pic is great! Can't wait to see the rest of them. Know that you continue to be in my thoughts and prayers! Special prayers that all goes well with Kennedy!
Psalms 86:5-7 For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee. Give ear, O LORD, unto my prayer; and attend to the voice of my supplications. In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.

Prayers for the little Miss tomorrow!! I know she will do just fine! She'll for sure win a lot of smiles from the hospital staff! Kameron is the cutest little white belt ever! And tell Kennedy that is the way we eat most of our whipped cream as well....straight from the can to mouth! HA! The sneak preview of the pics is fabulous!! Love it!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of the Special K's!!! (((HUGS)))!!

Asking the Holy Ghost to pray for you with groanings that can't be uttered!
Romans 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
