Mammoth Christmas 2014

Hi, this is Kejia, I am now the blog poster!  So...when we were in Mammoth Christmas 2014 we went skiing, ice skating, spent time with family and had a lot of fun. Christmas 2014 was really fun because I got to see some of my cousins and some of my aunts and uncles that I haven't seen for a long time.  Happy New Year to all and to all good night.

Happy Halloween

Pretty much first time at the ocean for Ellery!!!

Crazy Elephant Seals.

Our Art work

Halloween Evening, ended with stomach ache!

Thursday before Halloween, ready for Farmers Market dinner and trick or treating!

Cutest Little Witch... Not only was Halloween awesome but we got to have Ellery visit and that was so fun. She kept us laughing and we stayed busy.

Room Redo

I have a very good, trusting, amazing friend who asked me back in Sept to re-do a room in her home. She wanted it to be a hang out/game room/play room for her boys who are 13, 11, and 7. I had so much fun doing the room and this is the first time I have ever decorated for someone else. I wanted a room that would grow with her boys. The television and couch were already there. I painted and accessorized and left room for growth as they get new toys, games, and stuff... Here are the photos.... Sorry about the spots, we took the camera to the ocean a few weeks prior and I did not notice until I downloaded the photos that I had salt water spots on the camera...OOPSIES

Hi Family and Friends, I also wanted to say a little something about Arnie and I. It is so easy to talk about being Kejia's parents and how wonderful she is but wanted to give you a little update on us too.

Arnie is really enjoying his new career move. Besides work, he makes a lot of time in his schedule for play and that is the best medicine for him for any ailment...

He has been able to Sky Dive, Backpack, camp, waterski, jetski, wakeboard, surf, snow ski, cat ski, take Emily out on lots of dates (thank you to friends and family for babysitting), and take Kejia out on lots of dates too!!!

He is hard worker in between all of this play and we are thankful for that.

I love my friends and my family and miss those I am not near and love to be with those I am near. With all of our moving I feel like I am so blessed to have friends in so many places. When we first got here I started to clean houses again for some extra income but just recently quit cleaning houses (unfortunately not my own, ha ha ha) and now Kejia and I get to watch a darling little boy 4 days a week who is almost one and we love it. She gets sad when he has to go home in the evenings. I have loved all of the places we have called home. Thank you to all of you who have made it home for us. We have been blessed so much by our Father in Heaven and by our friends and family who work through him to help us.

I can't promise to keep up on this blog better but there is only room for improvement.
Whoaaaaa........ Kejia turned 5 a few months ago!!! Yes, I do deserve the worlds worst blogger award and if you agree with me, I don't want to hear about it.

She is smart, beautiful and so so so kind hearted. She never wants anyone to feel left out. She is also quite a little helper. Some new things she has learned this year; how to ride her bike without training wheels, cross the monkey bars at all the parks, recognizes and can write and knows the sounds of all of her letters and can write her numbers up to 30 and can count to 100. Last summer her dad taught her swim lessons and she has been able to swim and dive for dive toys since last june. Also last June she hiked a 3 1/2 mile hike without needing to be carried. This summer we will be attempting her first back packing trip! She is amazing. She is growing up so fast in so many ways and we are trying to enjoy each moment.

Not sure if Kindergarten this coming fall will be harder for Kejia or for mom!!! I am already shedding some tears. I will miss my little girl while she is at big kid school.

We are so blessed to be her parents and love every moment of it.

4 year old pictures!!! She is too Cute

Here are some of Kejia's 4 Year old pictures. My great friend Emily did them. She did a great job and really captured Kejia's personality. Take a look


Kejia's activities for the summer include at least bike riding and swimming and even sometimes doing them together. For sure the goggles help her see better while she is riding her bike at the pool. She is a really funny girl. Arnie has decided to give her swim lessons this summer. Seems to be going well for the two of them.
