Casey at the Getz's for her 2nd b'day party!

Casey got a butterfly net and bug condo from Aunt Heather. Here she is in my parents backyard trying to find butterflies and bugs to catch!
Hi everyone,
Hope you are all doing great. Casey, Jimmy, and I had a nice trip up to PA again. Our ride both up and back went smoothly. Newly potty trained Casey did not have one accident the whole ride!
We had two birthday parties for Casey when we were home...one at the Getz's and one the Kilian's. She had a great time at both and probably is wondering why all the commotion surrounding her birthday is over now! ha ha!
I was able to be home for the wedding of one of my college roommates, too. It was a beautiful wedding and fabulous reception. It was so good to see everyone...I had a great time, but sort of fizzled toward the end of the night. This pregnant lady doesn't see 1030pm too often these days and I didn't get home until after midnight!
We also got to attend our niece, Dyllan's dedication to her church. It was a nice service (what I was there for...as Casey had a bit of a meltdown during the sermon)...Dyllan was well behaved and didn't seemed phased by all the attention.
We missed our Kyle while we were gone, but he was busy at work. He had a bunch of dinners the end of the first week we were gone and then had an group of educators down here the first part of the second week we were gone that he got to show around Parris Island. He was BUSY!
Casey had her 2 year check up last week and all went well. She was 33.5 inches and 26.5 lbs (which are both right around the 50th percentile). She got only one shot and barely whimpered. She told the nurse, "I brave". She also asked why she had to go the doctor that day and I told her so that the doctor could make sure she was growing into a big girl...and her response, "So I can drive, mommy?" -- She's always asking if she can drive the car and I tell her when she's a big girl. Well, she now knows she has to be 16! Ha ha ha!
Otherwise, we are all doing well. I'm getting a bigger belly by the day...haven't gained too much weight yet, which I am thrilled about. We have another ultrasound on 5/10 and then we fly to PA again for a little under a week! We'll be around from 5/11-17th. We have a wedding the night of the 14th and Payton's first b'day on the 16th. This will be our last trip to PA until after new baby...probably won't see you all until the Holidays! So come visit us!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay...rambled enough. Hope to see you soon!!!

Laying down, profile view...legs are curled up and crossed here.
Looking right at us...little scary/alien like, I know!

Hard to tell exactly what is what here, but the tech was documenting that the legs were all tucked up and crossed so we couldn't tell at this point what the gender was!
Ready to take the princess helmet off...

Me and my helmet!
Who doesn't just wear there bike helmet around the house all day...Joey?? Sound familiar? At least hers doesn't outweigh her!

Hi All:

Just wanted to add a few new pictures...
All is well down here. After a bit of a storm last night, we have more beautiful weather in the forecast for the next 7 days! (Although, Casey, Jim and I leave for PA on Tuesday, so could you please make sure the weather is nice up there, too!!!)

Yesterday, Kyle and I went for an ultrasound for new baby K as we has some abnormal screening test results...BUT, all looked great w/baby and we are pretty positive it is another baby girl! We are just thrilled that baby is healthy and we'll have a follow up ultrasound in 4 weeks to confirm gender! woo hoo!

Here are some pictures of Casey and her new little sister!

Happy Second Birthday, Casey...and Happy Easter Everyone!

Had a beautiful day down here yesterday---it has been just wonderful weather this whole past week...if only there were no BUGS!!!
Sherri, Robert, and Alex were staying in Hilton Head this past Thursday-today (Monday the 5th)...so we got to spend a lot of time w/them. Casey and I went to their hotel twice and Casey got to play on the beach which she LOVES. The guys got to go out fishing on the boat-- no fish, but still think they had a memorable day!

On Easter, Casey got up and hunted eggs, enjoyed her Easter basket and then we all went to a beautiful Easter service at our church. We got home, had a quick snack and I got dinner going. Sherri, Robert, and Alex came for dinner and Casey's birthday celebration. The food was great, Casey enjoyed opening her gifts and LOVED her "princess" cake--which wasn't really a princess cake, but it was pink and therefore, she called it a princess cake!?! LOL!

Anyway, it was a really nice week...even more good weather headed our way, so lots of fun outside planned. And next week, Casey I leave to head to PA (on Tuesday)--we should be there Wednesday! Hope to see ya soon!!!

The New and Improved Stay Classy

Here are the most recent pictures of the boat w/her new paint job. Kyle worked SOOO hard on this project over the past few months...got help from my dad w/the primer for two days, but otherwise, he sanded and painted and sanded and painted his heart out. The finished project looks great!
Great work Kyle!!!
