Christmas 2008

Christmas 2008 has been wonderful. Having at least three families to celebrate with makes it a busy holiday; But its definitely a lot of fun.

Our tradition is to spend Christmas eve eve with my mom and my step dad Ryan. We all(Rachelle, Kenzie my 2 brothers etc) stay the night at her house that night- We wake up in morn and open gifts.

Christmas eve we have my favorite service of the year(Christmas eve Candle light{REAL CANDLES THIS YEAR!!!} service). After service we go to Rachelle's parents house and eat Chili's Chicken Tortilla soup in a fresh bread bowl. We stay up pretty late and open gifts with all the fam. We wake up (when our bodies give the ok)and eat a really good brunch.... Then pack up to go to Christmas Celebration #3!

We head over to my dad's house on Christmas afternoon. This year all of us watched the Laker game together.... They won!!! Praise the Lord! Then hang out till evening.

Christmas has been especially fun and memorable with the edition of Kenzie this year. She is definitely the gift of a life time.

Merry Christmas! Pray you had a good one to!

A quarter of a century

I just turned 25... I am liking the way it feels so far. I had a great little party tonight at my parents house. For an early Birthday gift Kenzie clawed my nose with her ever growing razer nails - Notice in picture 1.
I am going to post a few other pics on my facebook.

The Pants Loves Christmas Time.

Kenzie Pants is over 8 Months old! I can hardly believe it. She has been thoroughly enjoying Christmas shopping and is pumped about her very first holiday season. Lately she has been enjoying warm December bubble baths, Rolling from her designated tummy time area clear out of bounds under the Christmas tree and spreading Christmas cheer by singing(Yelling) loud for all to hear.
She enjoyed her first family photo shoot last week... as she prepped for her first photo she was overwhelmed with excitement causing a river of white spit up to joyfully decorate her outfit.
I can already tell she is going to love Christmas! I love being a dad.

Me, The doll...and her doll.

So Kenzie doll and I are upstairs hanging while Rachelle and a slew of woman are downstairs selling baby gadgets. Kenz has been in quite the pleasant mood since filling her stomach. We are currently blogging(me), chewing on raggedy Ann(her) and watching Man Vs Wilde.

Preparations for the fat nap.

Okay... So I know we probably for sure have one thing in common: Love for Thanksgiving. There is just something special about getting away to your families house, gathering your tribe under one roof and eating enough food to feed Rhode Island.
I appreciate turkey meat of all colors, corn on the cob,green bean casserole, Mashed potato's and Multiple Gravies, Salad, Ham, Yam bake(marshmallows and yams-Glory!), Cranberry marshmallow salad(Heavenly), Olives, rolls on my butter(in that order), Gravy, gravy..what am I forgetting?
Oh and desert... Pumpkin pie of course! Plus my grandma Francey's famous homemade apple pie!!!
So after you have filled your body with enough food to hibernate for the winter you reach the highlight of November 27th... the FAT NAP. Fat nap in the Websters is defined by a picture of me bloated on the couch in front of the Tv(with Dallas Cowboy game on) in a semi conscious state- With my top button of my pants unbuckled and my belt dangling open with gut sagging off the couch halfway to the floor. A good fat nap will put 10 pounds on a man and thrust his waistline up 2 to 6 inches.

Thats my joy on November 27th. What do you Love about Thanksgiving?

ER will do it to ya....

So let the truth be told I am not a fan of doctor's offices or hospitals; However last night we found ourselves in the ER for 5hrs. It started with Kenzie waking up at about 11:30 Throwing up. I must admit that seeing your child(baby) sick and in pain is about the worst feeling I have ever experienced.

After throwing up about 5 times and a helpful conversation with a nurse named Lee we headed for the hospital--- Rachelle drove while I comforted Kenzie as she continued to dry heave and throw up.

We got checked in and placed in our room around midnight. The dr said she may have bladder infection so he wanted a urine sample... that required a catheter(I wanted to cry). The nurse hooked her up and Kenzie did pretty good.

Then nurse came back after some time and said there was protein in her urine. Long story made shorter after: Catheter, Unsuccessful blood draw, ankle blood draw+ I.V. and heel prick the diagnosis was a virus.

After an emotional roller coaster of wanting to cry for Kenzie, Choke the nurses and Chuck Norris Round house the Dr's we left with a new perspective on life. Regardless of what is happening in the world, who's in office or how good or bad our economy is doing...We are grateful and thankful for the simple things in life- Like good health. I guess the ER will do it to ya.

Some things I love...

Some things I just LOVE.
I love life
I love waking up in the morning to my wife's voice as she talks to our daughter
I love the way houses smell when you have the windows open
I love the way I feel after filling my car up with gas
I love the relaxing sense you get when you get your hair cut
I love the first day of November because you have the holidays and snow coming
I love packing vehicles for road trips
I love the sense you get when you arrive home after a long trip
I love the way you feel after a good jog
I love getting a good deal
I love the feeling you get when you know you helped someone
and I love the peace and deep joy I receive after spending time in Gods presence.

Kenzie Was under the weather today :(

Kenzie Pants came down with a strange little virus today. She woke up around 5am and thru up pretty bad and was a bit fussy all day. It culminated around 6pm with two bad throw up on mom episodes(God love her). She seems to be doing better now as she is sleeping away. Throw a prayer up for Kenz after you read this- Will keep ya posted.

Night Ninja's.... So I never realized how much I appreciate sleep. I credit my 6 month old little girl for this new found appreciation. Seriously I have forgotten what it was like to: use my normal voice, walk flat footed and jump into bed at night- Rachelle says I am too loud... She gives me the classic "SHHH!!! Your going to wake up Kenzie!!!"I got to admit... I got a bad whisper voice- I am either loud or LOUDER.
So the last six months I find myself forced to develop my night ninja skills. However I am not to proud to admit that it comes much easier to Rachelle than to myself. She is a Samurai ... 4real! She is stealth- She can go into the nursery behind enemy lines, change the kenzie pants, plant her Paci in her mouth and make "the drop" into her crib without the slightest peep from the doll face.
Me on the other hand can wake Kenz up flicking a light switch on clear across the house or flushing the upstairs toilet. I don't get it.
Please pray that God would give me my wifes ninja annointing!

At home with the Pants (Kenzie Pants).

My morning started today with watching the pants. Changed her (Notice the leggings on her arms to guard from direct hand attacks and miss match socks- This is what she has to look foreward to when mom leaves)then I attempted to feed her rice cereal.... yeah...Its a learning curve.
When she started fighting back I retreated to my secret weapon- Baby Einstein! She loves it!!! Literally her face is glued to the screen... Her cereal cry turned into Einstein ease. Thank you Jesus 4 B E!
Thought this would be a fun first entry. You will be seeing more ahead.
