Our Babymoon....

...I've never really heard a true definition of what a "Babymoon" is, but to Andrew & I, a "Babymoon" is a trip you take after having settled down to a routine with your Toddler. This is a trip you take away from you baby, thus AWAY WE GO!!!
Andrew & I are headed to Playa del Carmen (near Cancun), Mexico tomorrow morning! We could not be more excited. We have pretty much purchased the tickets, rented a hotel room and read a book about Playa. The rest we're kind of winging. Hopefully we'll get to Scuba, hopefully we'll eat awesome Mexican and HOPEFULLY WE'LL DAYDRINK!!!!
Anywho, in our place, Grandma & Grandpa have arrived to take on the duties of Mommy & Daddy! They are having lots of fun, but know that little Miss Isabelle is going to wear them out! I'm just excited its not me....SO OFF WE GO!!!!

Thank you more than you know Grandma & Grandpa! Love you love you!!!

It was a lot of fun seeing so many family members and catching up! Isabelle adapted well to playing with new people and loved all of her new gifts!!!
Love you all! AK&I

Early Christmas Trip to Kansas City

This time of year it is so hard to be away from why not just go see them!?!?! So that we did.. Isabelle & I took our first leg of the trip to visit my family in Kansas City! Andrew couldn't take off too much work time, so he was only able to attend the second part of our trip to Hereford to visit his family.
Isabelle and I spent a week in Kansas City, half the time with my mother and half the time with my father & step mother. We were busy! My mom and I took Isabelle to Union Station to visit the train exhibit, went shopping, watch movies, played with Isabelle & enjoyed catching up. At my fathers, we made cookies, played games, went shopping of course and had lots of laughs. It is so much fun to spend time were I grew up and to get to show off how much fun our little girl is! We had a blast and I cannot wait to come back and visit!
From our trip (need more photos from dad - my camera ran our of battery...sad):

"Christmas" with Nana, Mummums & Nicky

This will probably be our last year traveling at this time of year, because Miss Isabelle will be turning 2 next November...which makes it that much more expensive. Sad, but we are so excited to start our own family traditions here in our HOME!! We now have our Elf of a Shelf (thank you Janette/Nana/Mom!), 2 nativity sets (one for Isabelle to play with) and lots of new ornaments to decorate our tree I just have to go buy the stocking holders & train!!!
Love you all and thank you for the AMAZING GIFTS!!!! We feel so spoiled! Love, AK&I
