Pure Bliss

After a crazy day spent with 20 6yr olds I can't wait to get home to Kara. Yesterday was one of those days. Kids always seem to find a way to make you smile, especially if it's your own. Kara and I were laying on the couch together and she turned to face me. For what seemed many hours she just layed next to me talking and singing, with the occasional hug followed by the words: I La Loo (i love you). My heart was overflowing with her sentiments!! She would poke at my face and laugh, if I whispered something to her she would whisper back. This kept going, we sang songs and then she would tell me to SSHHHH!!!!! Finally she whispered Night Night, and we walked to her bedroom together. I was tempted to just let her fall asleep next to me on the couch. I love our special moments like the one we shared last night.......................

The Bucket Chronicles

Kara loves to play with anything and everything....well my very talented daughter has taken a liking to wearing a bucket on her head. She likes to run around laughing and yelling mommy, all the while laughing hysterically! I managed to snap a few pics of the buckethead tonight.

The second picture is a little creepy and funny all at the same time. I hope you enjoy the photos!

When Kara Attacks..............

Kara seems to love the camera lately. And as you can see she likes to get closer and closer and even closer until she is right on top of the camera...............

Can we say bad hair day?

Many times Kara wakes up with some very interesting hair styles. This was one of those days, I couldn't help but snap a few pictures.....You have to love her smile!!

The Zoo

We had a lovely time at the zoo, I personally enjoyed watching Kara enjoy the elephants!! She yelled at them in between snacking on Pink Popcorn...thanks Grandma!

Daddy thought it would be cute to have Kara sit in the Hippo's mouth....she didn't want to stay there long...

Aren't we glad our babies aren't born as big as baby giraffes. Could you even imagine having a baby that is 6ft tall.....I think not!!

It's about time!!!!

Ok, so I finally downloaded pictures off my camera....which would've happened soon had I been able to find the adapter to connect to my computer! Well anyways......I thought it might be nice to share a few pictures of Kara with her Uncle Brian, who was on leave from the Navy. I've included some pictures from our Father's Day trip to the zoo.

Kara playing ball with her Uncle Brian.

.....and later managed to get him to read a book to her......Cinderella.
