Meet John!

Today I'm linking up with SUYL Singles from Kelly's Korner.  I'm a little late getting this post up, but wanted to join in on the fun! 

This is my brother-in-law John! He is in his mid 30's and lives in Little Rock, AR. He is currently finishing up his 4th year of medical school at UAMS. He is still trying to narrow down what he wants to specialize in. 

In his spare time he enjoys hanging out with his friends, working out, playing the guitar and spending time with his family. He loves Jesus. Loves the outdoors and like to fish and canoe. He loves dogs. He adores his two nieces!

John is also an identical twin! I'm married to his brother! :) They are best friends. 

He grew up in Fayetteville, AR on a farm and has wonderful parents.  He went to the U of A and has a bachelors in electrical engineering as well as his masters degree too. 

John is just an all around nice guy and is a lot of fun to be around. He has a big heart and really puts others before himself.  

If you are interested please leave me a commet or email me or if you have any questions!

Kinley is TWO!!!

How is it possible my baby is two?!? Kinley turned two on Friday and we had a great day celebrating her birthday. It was just us, which I know she doesn't know the difference, but I wish that all our family could have been here to celebrate her special day.  I have been talking to Kinley about her birthday for a few weeks and that she was going to be two. When you ask her how old she is she says two and can usually get her two fingers up, sometimes it might be three!

Anyway, onto Kinley's birthday fun! She loves pancakes, so I made her some special birthday blueberry pancakes!

She was too funny when she saw the lit candles. She said oh mommy cool! She tried to blow them out, but needed a little bit of help. 

She opened a birthday card that came in the mail that day from Grandma, Papa and Uncle Brad. She was very excited about it! She loves to check and open the mail. Those are her birthday pj's that I had got a few months ago marked down really cheap from Gap. 

After we got ready for the day we headed out to lunch. I planned on taking her to CFA, but it was so busy because school was canceled here for 2 days because they thought hurricane Isaac was going to cause all sorts of issues, which it did not. The kids got lucky and had a 5 day weekend! So, we headed to Raising Cane's Chicken. So good!! Enjoying her lunch!

Brooklyn had fun too!

After lunch we headed over to Orange Leaf for some bday froyo! Yummy!!


The birthday girl needed some balloons! And sweet Brooklyn sleeping while we were out and about. 

We couldn't wait for daddy to get home that evening so we could open presents and eat cake. Here is the birthday table! She loves Elmo, so I thought it was only fitting to make an Elmo cake for her!

She was VERY excited about her cake! So cute!

And she was so interested in Elmos eyes! She kept pointing at them and saying Elmo's eyes.

She had no problem opening her presents. She was hilarious opening them. She would say oh cool, oh mine, and would say mmmmhuh (not really sure how to type that out), but it was so cute. And she's really into saying that everything is cool. 

She got a train set from one set of her grandparents and loves it!

My parents were able to Facetime on the ipad to join in on the fun and watch! We set it up over on the kitchen counter. 

A few more things she got, a pink school bus and a travel kitty pillow!

After presents we headed out for dinner. She also got some hello kitty dishes. She had taken them all out of the box, but repacked them back in the box so that she could take them with her. The cup even had water in it!

And trying out her pillow.....

Kinley loves mexican food, so we ate at our favorite local mexican restaurant. 

And then back home to play with her new toys! And of course eat cake too!

It was such a wonderful day! Kinley you are loved so very much!!! You are just such a joy to us and we love watching you grow and learn new things every day! You makes us laugh and keep us on our toes! You are one busy little girl. You are a very, very sweet big sister too! Brooklyn loves you very much! I know that all of our family loves you so much too and miss you very much! Happy 2nd Birthday sweet girl!!!!
