June 30, 2011

Uncle Jonathan, Aunt Corrie and cousin Samuel came in town last month and we all enjoyed some time at the Liberty Park pool. Next time we see them they will have a new baby girl - Miriam. We can't wait to welcome another girl to the Kiel family!

Samuel was a little intimidated at first, but he caught on quick.

It's a good thing we had more than one ball!

This picture cracks me up. Allison was being so silly and Uncle Jonathan was just going along with it!

More Emily Celebrations!!

June 18, 2011

We had Emily's 5th birthday party at Old Overton Club pool. It was a great turn out and she was celebrated very well. All the kids had a blast and it was by far the easiest and most laid back party we've thrown (so far). Enjoy the party via pictures!

Where most of the kids hung out.

Ethan's first time jumping off of a diving board. The kid is fearless!

The party set-up at OOC.

Trish and her sweet girls (baby girl #3 will be here soon!)

These two girls are some of my greatest friends. They were trying to make themselves go into labor. I was just glad nothing happened at the party. They have both since given birth to 2 healthy babies. Way to hang in there Kristi and Steph!!

Uncle T and Allie B.

Ahh, the cake! This was a whole story in itself. I had ordered a cookie day to be ready the night before the party. I went to pick it up and it was a HUGE sheet cake with navy and green icing. Not what I had ordered at all. I demanded a reorder to be ready first thing Saturday morning. Not only did they almost double the size of the cookie cake, I also got all my balloons (12) for free. Way to redeem yourself, Publix! It turned out great and thank goodness I had an extra day!

The trick sparkler candles. Look at those faces!

precious kids!

Cake drunk!

I had the "balloon lady" there to make the kids balloon animals/swords/flowers/princesses. As usual, she was awesome. If you ever need her services, contact Bama Balloons. Mary Lou rocks!!

Em's turn to jump to daddy.

Better late than never!! Our old neighbors thought the party started at noon so they arrived as everyone was leaving. The party was really 10-12p. We let the 6 kids swim for awhile!

He is the coolest kid ever! We love some Drew-Boo.


I think it's safe to say it was a Barbie kinda birthday. Happy Birthday Emily!
Fortunately she can't get on the computer and see all these great gifts. She may or may not be getting some of these things at a later date........

Hi, it's Jennifer. Remember me??? I am so far behind on the blog and it is totally stressing me out. My goal this week is to get caught up, little by little. We have been super busy this month with lots of traveling, birthday parties, out of town family, and just getting through summer. I am so ready for school to start back. Emily starts a few weeks before the other two. I can't believe she will be at "big school" this year. I also have some news......NO, I'M NOT is the answer to your question! I accepted a part-time job working with an oral surgeon here in town. I will be pre-oping the patients, performing the sedations for the procedure and then recovering them afterwards. I also will be assisting in the OR as needed. The doctor says I will be his personal assistant. Is that good or bad?!!? I choose good! It came out of no where and I'm more excited than I thought I would be. But probably not as excited as my dear husband. After not working for a few years, I feel a little out of practice. I have taken some mandatory classes online and performed the required skills labs to get certified. This has all happened so fast (got the call last week) and start this week! This is another reason for the poor blog updates. I've been studying again. And it's much harder with 3 kids. And I thought studying in college was hard.

As if I needed anymore excuses, but here is one more. My son. He is a complete mess and extremely active and requires constant supervision. He wears me out and absolutely nothing gets done if he's not sleeping. He better not give up his nap for a LONG time! Here is proof.

Yes, he got stuck while trying to ride in a baby doll stroller. He was really stuck. Of course I had to get my camera to document his crazy self. There is never a dull moment in this house, EVER! More updates to come soon. Thanks for checking in on the Krazy Kiel Kids!!
