Bad Hair Days...

So Do you like Flock of Seagulls ?

Sydney does.


We try to comb her hair to the side after we get her out of the bath and this is what always happens! It is too funny and we love it!

Happy New Year!!!

Yes, we are still alive and kicking. It has been a busy month. We flew out to AZ a week before Christmas and have not gotten around to blogging for a while. We had the opportunity to bless baby Sydney while out there. My parents were able to come down for the blessing so that was an added bonus, seeing all the grandparents. The blessing was a great experience and it was awesome to have so many family members and some friends there.

GiGi & Grandpa with Sydney

We spent Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa Kennedy's. Carson was worried for most of the week that Santa wasn't going to know where to find him. Then he realized Grandma and Grandpa didn't have a chimney. You can imagine what kind of concerns that brought up to the little guy. After we convinced him that Santa would know where to find him and know how to get in the house, Carson's concerns were somewhat put to rest.
Since we were going to be in Az for Christmas, we figured it wouldn't make sense to do much Christmas shopping at home. We thought we could get everything taken care of a few days before Christmas day. We should have realized that everyone and their brother was thinking the same thing. We knew what we wanted to get Carson and when it wasn't at the first store we went to, we started sweating bullets. Thank goodness the next store we went to had it and we didn't ruin a little boys Christmas. He thought it was amazing how there was no presents for him under the tree on Christmas Eve and then when he woke up on Christmas morning there was "a million presents" for him! Gotta love having little kids during the holidays.

One more quick note, and then I'll share some random pics. I was suppose to fly back home Saturday after Christmas. The key words to that sentence are "suppose to". Well, I thought I was ahead of the game when I was checking in online Friday evening. Well, when I put in my confirmation number the computer comes back with a message "your flight has already departed.". Uhhh.....yeah. I am brilliant. Apparently I booked my flight on Friday instead of Saturday. I thought I did it on Saturday so I could spend more time with the fam but no, I think I went for the cheaper ticket, and it ended up costing me. I freaked out and in panic mode big time and it didn't help that I was on hold for half an hour trying to talk to someone from the airline. Well, thankfully the lady I talked to on the phone had a little holiday spirit left over and saved me like $100 big ones. On the downside, I had to fly home at midnight on Saturday and didn't get home until around 7:30 Sunday morning. So the moral to the story is don't assume you know when your flight leaves, check!!!

Now, here are some random pics, enjoy.
