Oh the joy of a empty box

Well, Kynna has discovered the wonderful world of an empty box! She emptied about half a box of unused garbage bags, approximately 20-30 bags, onto the living room floor. Then she decided to make a nest in an empty box. Now she tries to hide in it and jump out at you. Quite entertaining.

After she gets settled and finds something of interest on TV, Kynna kicks back and relaxes in her little nest. But when you disturb her she gets a little cranky.

Yesterday, while Momom was pulling Kynna around in the box and making car noises, the box split. She got out and immediately demanded that Momom fix it. So today, I must go to buy some packing tape and fix what I broke. Silly Momom!

little mimick

Momom and Dadad had to both work late Friday night so Kynna got to sleep over at Grandma and Grandpa Ully's house. As always Grandma said Kynna was an angel...but who wouldn't be an angel when you get spoiled rotten!?!? Well, if she got spoiled rotten then she wouldn't be an angel but you know what I mean. Anywho, Grandma and Grandpa bought Kynna this cut little out fit so that she would have a Cruisn' outfit to match her Jeep. You can't see it all that well in the picture but the shirt has a green Jeep on it. They also taught her a new phrase...Kynna's new truck is now called the "Cheep Jeep". Funny grandparents they are.

When Grandma dropped Kynna off on Saturday afternoon she was being a silly little duck. She helped Momom sweep and vacuum. She also helped fill the dishwasher, pick up toys...and scatter them all over again, she helped with the laundry...she took the clean stuff out of the the basket and put it on the floor, because that is where the clean clothes go. Then it was time to play! She ran after Scheisster while riding her little truck. Then it was time to ride Scheisster. When that didn't go over so well she decided it was time to mimic something Dadad does. Every morning Dadad lays on the floor with his hands behind his head and stretches his back and legs out. Needless to say it was cute so Momom got out the camera. Snap happy Momom and her file of 1400 pictures of Kynna. When they're this cute you just can't help it!

...words cannot explain it. I do love Veggie Tales!

Attack of the Americans

This week Kynna's Auntie Pissy, her cousins Eliza, and Rainey, plus Dian's boyfriend Mike came to visit. Dian didn't know Mike was coming so she was super surprised when they got to Lethbridge. Everyone arrived Tuesday morning at 3:30 am. Because of our busy work schedules we didn't get to spend much time with everyone. But we got a few family dinners and some quality play time in.

We were super stoked to meet Rainey! He is absolutely handsome! When we first went to see everyone on Tuesday Kynna tried pushing Rainey off my lap and kept saying, "Off! My momom. OFF!" But she did okay after that and she did end up getting a few kisses in. Eliza was Eliza. The center of attention as usual but a natural born comedian. Kynna wasn't sure how to take her but thought she was "Funny!" Kynna was disappointed when Daniel was nowhere to be found but he had some minor surgery and was unable to make the trip. Jake and Daniel stayed home for some manly bonding time. Hopefully next time we will be able to see them.

Shaboom Shaboom

Kynna loves the movie "Cars". She would watch it every waking hour if we would let her. There is one specific scene called "Cruisen'" that they play the song "Life would be a dream" in the background. Kynna loves to dance and sing along, "Shaboom Shaboom". Here is a clip of her at her finest, groovn' to the song...enjoy! Oh, about halfway through the video it shakes pretty good...I couldn't stop laughing. Sorry!

Here it is!!!

Here is our new baby!!! Isn't she beautiful? I would have taken some pictures of the inside but my camera's battery died. Hopefully we will be able to take it out for some minor off-roading soon (even though Scott doesn't want to. Something about it being too nice a vehicle to get dirty). I will try to talk him into it this summer. We need to test it's 4 wheeling capabilities, don't you think? Anywho, must get ready for fun!

New Edition....

Okay, I have been crazy busy with work for the past few days so I have not had time to do much of anything. The weekend started off just great!!! Scott came home early from work on Saturday with a fun little bug known as the "Nor wok" virus (forgive my spelling). He was out of commission for 2 days. Poor guy ended up loosing ten pounds!

Kynna kinda suffered this weekend...well, she didn't suffer, she got spoiled by both sets of Grandparents. But because of my crazy work schedule and Scott being sick I dropped Kynna off at Gama and Papa Hovan's house at 4:30pm Saturday and she spent the night (I didn't want Kynna getting what ever Scott had). I then picked her up at 8:30am on Sunday and took her over to Grandma and Grandpa Ully's house. She stayed there until Grandma dropped her off at home with Scott about 7:00pm. I had to do an open to close on Sunday (10:30am Sunday until 1:30am Monday). Let me tell you how much fun that was! Then Monday was the only day both Scott and I had off. So we had Aunt Daina come over to watch Kynna while we got our taxes done. Then the rest of the day was our family day. We ended up taking Gama Hovan for a truck ride and then out to dinner in the evening. Auntie Di and Papa were making Gama mad so we got her out of the house. And Tuesday was back to the grind. Yippie!!!! And that is the fun that we had this past weekend.

Oh! I guess I should mention the new edition to our family, it is the whole reason I started writing this post. On Friday we traded in the Saturn Ion for a 2007, 4-door, Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. WE LOVE IT!!! I think it is kinda making up for the fact that Scott sold the Sammy. He feels more like a man driving a 4x4 than when he had to drive the car. I have been told that the Jeep is very much an "us" vehicle. Kynna calls it her Tractor and wants to go for "fruck rides" all day. As soon as I can get a free moment I will post a few pictures of the new Jeep for all to see.

Mom's Interesting Day With Kynna

Our day got off to a relatively good start. We got up, had breakfast, changed a bum, got dressed, had a tickle war, and then all hell broke loose. Well, not really but Kynna sure was successful in destroying the place again. Kynna decided that after she was finished her snack (popcorn) she would throw it all over the place...then crawl into a garbage can! When asked what she was doing, this is the look I got. This is the look I get when she is enjoying the mischief she is getting into.

We must have had a tiring morning because when it came time to wake up from her nap she would not get up. She tends to do this when Momom wants to get to work...on time (which does not happen very often). Hunkers, who is kinda scared of Kynna, even took her turn in trying to wake her up. With no success I decided to take some pictures of her instead. What else could I do?!?! She looked so cute!
