So Kammy had the opening prayer and scripture in primary today, and she was soooo cute! She did so awesome! We were afraid she would freeze up and not want to do it, so we tried prepping her for it by getting her excited and having her practice her scripture. She got up there with Brad and repeated everything he said loud and clear, we were so proud!! ;)
Kammy is now a member of Tricks Gym. She takes a ballet/tap class and a gymnastics class. We joined with her cousins Katherine and Lexy. They have so much fun, and they love doing it together! I look forward to watching her as she makes progress. Her first recital is in June, we'll keep ya posted!! Oh, and I'll post some better pics when I take more, she was being a little weirdo, so this was the best I could get haha!
Kammy had two birthday parties to attend to this month. First her cousin Frezia turned 5!!! She got to go to a teahouse for an adorable tea party!! She loved dressing up in the fun hats and gloves and scarves! They got to pick their own tea cup and then enjoyed hot chocolate and tasty finger snacks.
Then her cousin Katherine turned 3!! We went over to their house to hang out with family and Kammy had a lot of fun playing with her cousins!! They are all such cuties.
It has been literally forever and a day since an update! We have been so busy, sometimes we just get so overwhelmed when we have a million and one things going on that we just want to veg when we do finally have a free moment, and so an update is long overdue! Christmas was a blast, Kammy was old enough to really enjoy it this year. We participated in a ton of family get togethers between both sides of our family and loved being with everyone! We had two day trips to the snow, which was Kammys first time, so it was exciting. Her and Brad literally ate some snow sledding down a fast hill, Kammy was slightly traumatized by this and whenever we talked about the snow after that she would say "I don't want to go to the snow again!" Hopefully by next year she will be over that and we will just stick to making snow angels! We baked cookies with her Nana and Papa, and Aunt Leslie and Teddy. Then we decorated them and saved a few for Santas plate. Kammy really got into the idea of Santa and his reindeer, and we loved seeing the excitement in her eyes whenever she talked about him (but also felt a little guilty ;) So Christmas day was awesome, we had fun together at home, gave Kammy her pink escalade power wheels, she is so stylin' now! This was of course Jamesons first Christmas, and he couldn't have cared less, but, he did finally get some toys, he had slim to none before and now he is overwhelmed with all of his fun little noise makers! Anyways, then we went to both of our families' houses and had fun just hanging out with everyone. We love everything about Christmas, the lights, the spirit, the MUSIC woohoo, all the family gatherings, and of course the true meaning behind it!! And now it's a new year. Gosh can time go any faster. Tax season is two weeks away and we get sick just thinking about it. Those who don't know, Brad does taxes and therefore Katie is practically a widow for 10+ weeks. But we're just going to focus on the light at the end of the tunnel. Here are a ton of pics of all the fun we've had in the last month and a half!
Hey, we are the Elmers! Brad, Katie, Kammy(almost 5), Jameson(2) and Beckett (almost 5 months). We (Brad and Katie) have been married six years now, and have been together for nine! Where does the time go, can't say that enough! We have the cutest kids ever, they bring so much laughter into our home. Kammy is always saying something new, she's our little comedian. She is not shy, at least not when you get to know her. Jameson is our handsom, high maintenance, "terrible two's loving" toddler. He is so sweet, when he's not being a grumpy pain in the butt haha! Beckett is our most smiley child of the three. All you have to do is look at him and you get an ear to ear grin. He is almost an exact replica (boy version of course) of his older sister. We love all of our kids (3 children and 3 dogs) more than we can express and we couldn't feel more complete...at least as of right now...
