Kyndal talks with her hands

Apparently Kyndal has seen me talking on the phone one too many times. *Hangs head in shame* I actually talk with my hands on the phone, Huh, why, I dunno? I probably do it in person too, but I only notice while I am on the phone and I think I must look like a total idiot. Anyway, Kyndal has picked this up. It is pretty cute when she does it.

Kyndal's Christmas Program

Last Thursday I was thrilled to get a little slip of paper when I dropped Kyndal off that said she was chosen to be a sheep in the Christmas program. I got teary eyed. Another first, her first Christmas program. Her first role! I can't wait to see it. They have also been practicing songs that they will sing. I was surprised on Sunday when Kyndal just started singing "God our Father". It is really amazing what she is learning and I am so happy that she has her Mother's Day Out Program, a Christian program. We have to decide whether Kyndal is going to be a black sheep or a white sheep. We have the black clothes already for the black sheep role, but she sometimes says she wants to be a white sheep.

p.s. Katie our friend from our MOMS Club, who is 3, is going to be Mary in the Christmas program! I really can't wait to see it.

Questions for Kyndal

Here is a cute video of Kyndal.... I ask her several times what her Doctor's name is because I love the way she says Dr. Rosser and I am impressed that she knows his name.

Thanksgiving Banquet

Today we got to go to Kyndal's school and enjoy a Thanksgiving banquet with her and the rest of the kids, parents, and teachers. Kyndal was a little sleepy because it was getting close to naptime, but it was fun! I love all of these little first's we are having, First School Function!! Here are some pics.

Here is our girl before school today.

With each of her teachers.

Most of you know how 2 year olds are, they can have a meltdown at the tiniest little thing. Kyndal had a phase before she was two and would throw a fit when I didn't put the panties that she wanted to wear on. She would want pink carebears or something of the sort, and if those happened to be dirty it was meltdown time. We had a time or two with outfits too. That was a short phase, but she does still occasionally have a meltdown.

Seriously there is not a whole lot you can do when these do occur, especially when you don't know what triggered it. So I was watching Larry the Cable Guy on Jay Leno the other night and he was talking about his 2 year old's fits. He had a whole series of pictures documenting these fits. He said what do you do when they happen, you laugh point and take a picture. It was quite funny. Wow, if all of us parents could find it this amusing. So when Kyndal threw a fit one night when we were headed out the door (not sure why), I snapped this picture. I am sure I didn't get quite as much enjoyment as Larry the Cable Guys does.

Fall Projects

Thinks have been quite busy for us and Kyndal was sick for a while, just a virus, but it seems everyone has gotten one lately. Things are calmer now, so I am back to blogging again.

We did some fall projects recently. We had a craft day and service project here at our house. We made cards for the troops and collected items to send to Iraq. Kyndal's Aunt Dee is in Iraq. She was home for a little over a week because her brother passed away, but she had to go home on Saturday. I am sure these packages will have perfect timing because she should be getting them shortly after she gets back there. We do ask for continued prayers. We ended up collecting a lot of great things for the boxes and I stuffed three boxes full to send, thanks to my MOMS Club. Here is a picture of everything on my stairs before being boxed up.

The kids also made some special Thanksgiving cards to send to the troops and a craft to take home with them. Here is Kyndal's pine cone turkey.

America's Sweetheart

I know you will agree that she is America's Sweetheart. Now if you can tell me where she got this phrase from you will win a 3x3 mini accordion album with either Kyndal's pictures or pictures of your child(you will email them to you and I will create your album) Just place a comment to the blog or send me an email, the first to get it right wins.

Kyndal and Lola Dancing with the stars

Stylin' with a Ponytail

These are from Wednesday. I decided to fix Kyndal's hair in a single ponytail. As I was doing it she said "Like Lola" (her little friend that sometimes wears a ponytail). I said yes like Lola. She was patient as I tried to get all of the whispy hairs to cooperate. It still needs to get a little bit longer on the sides in order to stay put, but I thought she looked too cute. She loved it too. Doesn't she look grown up!

p.s. As you can tell, she has no interest in my camera unless she is saying "I wanna see Kyndal" (she likes to see the pictures on the screen in the back).

A day in History

This day will be a day in History for Kyndal and everyone else. I told Kyndal this morning that Mommy and Daddy were going to vote, she said "Kyndal vote too". I told her yes we will all vote. We got our "I voted" stickers and wized through the polling station in about a half hour. Tonight I asked her who we voted for and she could tell you! I already knew that this election would be written in her baby book as the first Presidential election in her life time. I now sit here with some very mixed emotions. I know this is a historic moment since the first African American president will soon be taking office, however I am fearful since the viewpoints of this newly elected President vary vastly from mine. I do know that God has a plan, although who knows when if ever it will be revealed to us. I go an email today from Bret that came from his Uncle Mike and I thought I would share it here:

Top 10 Predictions No Matter Who Wins the Election

1. The Bible will still have all the answers.

2. Prayer will still work.

3. The Holy Spirit will still move.

4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.

5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.

6. There will still be singing of praise to God.

7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.

8. There will still be room at the Cross.

9. Jesus will still love you.

10. Jesus will still save the lost when they come to Him.

God approves this message!
