Not yet!

I know I promised wedding photos...
 
I'm still waiting for some to come in,
organizing the ones I do have...
 
So, an anniversary photo of a couple who celebrated their fourth anniversary
on the cruise will have to do...
 
 
Did you like that?
How about another one?
 
 
If you thought those were cute
check out this one...
 
 

I know...we're adorable.
 
Happy anniversary, Mr K!
I love you!

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Monday was our first day home from the cruise...
 
Locklan and I decided to get Pappy K's Santa out of the basement
and move him to the front porch.
 
Pappy has had this Santa for nearly 50 years,
it's an important part of his Christmas celebration!
 
Locklan was thrilled to see Santa when I brought him up the stairs...
 
He stopped me in the kitchen so he could offer Santa a snack.
 
He stood Santa in front of the fridge...
 
 
And asked him what he'd like to have...
 
 
He finally decided that what Santa really wanted was a drink of water!
 
 
It's such fun to have a kid this age around for Christmas!

I knew it all along!

Yesterday, Andy, Ashley and Locklan went for Ashley's 20 week ultra sound.  Afterwards, they dropped Locklan off so they could do some Christmas shopping.
 
When they came to pick him up, Ashley mentioned that they had an envelope at home that had the gender of the baby inside.  They had already decided NOT to find out the gender until that day!
 
We talked about it...Ashley was certain that it was a girl...Locklan had already named the baby Sally...I have been waiting for a grand daughter for a long time!
 
Of course, we wouldn't know until Baby M's arrival late April!
 
Then, a few hours later, I got this text message from Ashley...
 
 
They opened it!
 
Eeeeekkkkk!
 
It's a girl!
It's a girl!
 
It's a GIRL!

Every Year/Today's the day!

Every year, about this time we get a box delivered to our house.
 
It looks like this...

 

No, this is the box from 2014...looks much the same as 2015 and 2016...
 
It's a Christmas gift from Mr K's patent attorney!
 
In 2014, it looked like this...
 
 
I didn't bother to photograph 2015.
 
Last year, I swore off sugar (and tons of other junky foods).
 
It came, I saw and I DID NOT taste it at all.
 
Didn't really bother me, nor did the huge bag of Swedish Fish that Mr K got me for Christmas...
 
This year, Locklan and I were home alone when the FedEx man came...
 
I knew what it was and was not going to open it but he insisted!
 
Inside the box that looked much like this...
 
 
was this!!!
 
 
 
 
There were assorted chocolates,
truffles,
chocolate covered pretzels...
 
and a big slab of chocolate with the name of the firm on it!
 
Finally...we got our chocolate box and I used it!
 
 
or rather, Locklan used it...
For a (reading) bed!
 
~sigh~
 
No sugar for me since December 14, 2017
 
Today makes it 353 days!
 
Now, on the other hand...today's the big day...
 
 
 
Tony and Mindy's wedding day!
 
I'm so excited!
 
Stay tuned for the details!

Oh my!

I got these photos from Andy and Ashley the other day...
 
They were at the tree farm...
 
The same Christmas Tree farm Mark and I always took the boys to when they were young!
 
 
 
 
Other than the fact that Andy used a chain saw,
it was so much the same!
 
 
 
When I saw this photo of the tree on the back of Ashley's jeep I did say oh-oh...
 
 
But Andy's spatial perception has always been good...
(not like his mother who once got a school bus stuck on a
 bridge that was at the bottom of a steep hill )
 
So I was shocked when he sent me this photo...
 
and told me that this was taken AFTER he cut 12" off!
 
 
Oh well!?!
'Tis the season!
 
Getting there!  Locklan is getting excited and so am I!

Baby Mango?

Ashley recently posted this on Facebook:
 
 
Amazing to think that in 19 or so weeks, this mango-sized bundle of joy
will become a full size pooping machine!
 
I remember when I was expecting Andy...
The first time I checked the book said:
 
Your baby is the size of a lima bean and has lips.
 
From that moment until we met him face to face
we referred to him as Beanie!
 
~giggle~
 
I'm getting so excited!
