Facebook Happenings for Jan. '15


Facebook Happenings for Jan. '15

Some things you might have missed on facebook.

Jan. 1, 2015
Happy New Year's everyone! I have the flu, which is not fun at all. The kids liked staying up late, they had fun watching movies and playing. Our dog Dodger was afraid of the fireworks and wouldn't stop barking at them, so the 4th/24th of July should be fun (not). Our other dog Violet doesn't mind them at all. Let's hope Dodger gets use to them. Hope everyone had a happy and safe night last night. Bring on 2015, here's to hoping our dreams will come true this year - for me it would be getting the funding we're hoping for my hubby's company and getting into a house of our own. Hope all your dreams come true too!

Love these two!

This reminds me of my husband - love you Jason!

Love it!

Feeling a little stressed and still sick. Jason is starting the funding for his company on Mon. the 5th. We are hoping to not only get enough capital to fund the company until the end of the year at the very least, but also be able to get enough to payoff reimbursements, expenses, ect. as well. PLEASE keep us in your prayers, fasts and if you go to temple put our names in the prayer box. We could use all the help we can get! At least we will know by around the same time next month how it all works out, so that's nice it won't take too long to know. Crossing our fingers!!! Wish us luck and keep us in your prayers, please...
Comments:
Janice Ford Hatfield - I'll be at the temple fri. Your names will be on the prayer roll then.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Thank you so much!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - O.K. so I lied or was misinformed - Today is the day we started the funding and instead of it going for 1 month it's going to go for 2 months. So here's to hoping we get enough funding!!!

It feels strange to have Sydney go back to school. I have to say, I have enjoyed having both kids home. They have been pretty good and it's been fun playing with them. Time to go back to getting up early and running around getting things ready too early in the morning...

I've always liked her!

Comments:
Beth Strickler - Is there a way to help?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - If you want to donate to the funding you can, but you don't need to. Just send us your prayers for the next two months, that would be a huge help!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Or if you know someone who has lots of money that wants to invest in our eSports gaming company, we'll take that too. :o) We're not picky. lol
Scott Bartholomew - You guys have a website?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - We sure do - it's http://www.collaborativeesports.com/

Got some good news. We were approved to buy a house. $0 down/$0 closing - wahoo! We won't be able to start looking until next month, but hopefully it will only take us a couple of months to find one we like and then about 2 months after that to close (if all goes well). Just in time too 'cause our lease will be up here in June and Sydney will be done with school at the end of May. Won't be anything big and fancy, but it will be a castle to us. Wish us luck, feeling very blessed!
Comments:
Beth Strickler - howd u manage to get 0 down and 0 closing?
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - My guess would be a first time home buyer program
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yep 1st time home buyer.
Mary Kempton Kemp - Excited for you guys!
Janice Ford Hatfield - Congrats Kris. Very excited for you.
Lois Mullins Clark - Yay for you!!!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Thanks you guys! We're pretty excited.
Carmen Remington Jacobus - I'm so happy for you guys.. it's a fun and trying experience.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yeah I bet, thanks!
Beth Strickler Good for u!!!! Congratulations

Just made some cookies with the kids, they had lots of fun decorating/eating one of them. The rest they had to save until after dinner. Plus we're doing our family home evening lesson and then building a popsicle stick house for the activity. Pretty fun stuff happening at our house. Love my family and spending time with them!

Got some really great news!!! I have been thinking of going back to school in the fall (around Sept.). Well I had gone back to school before this, but it was too hard with little kids still at home, so I had to stop and put it on hold. But now Caden will be starting school in the fall and then I can start again - yay! When I first looked at one school it would be about 3 yrs. and almost 3 times as much money for a bachelor’s degree in Business. Now I'm looking at this other school (the school I went to, to get my associates) and it will only be slightly over 1 yr. and 1/3 less money - plus my books are included in the program. I'm so glad/excited I looked into this - this is awesome!!! All my credits from my associates transfer over - love Provo College!

We had a good weekend looking at houses. Now we get to play the waiting game to see what pans out. We're thinking of either building a new home or buying an almost new home - we just have to see which one accepts our offer. Both great choices, both 4 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms, one level homes.
Comments:
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - When are you guys thinking of going?
Kris Kemp-Erickson - It depends - if we build it's looking like the beginning of June, but if we buy the already built house then it would maybe be beginning of May.

Jan. 27, 2015
Just made our first offer on building a new home - this is the one we would like the most. Crossing our fingers they accept it. Prayers would be appreciated!!!
Comments:
Brent Isom - Good luck..
Beth Strickler - So flippen exciting!!!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Thanks you guys, yeah we're exited. We'll be even more excited when we get the offer approved and our loan finalized.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Then the fun stuff can begin of picking out our colors and other stuff. I'm looking forward to that stage, hopefully we will get to that part.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Nothing is official yet, but it's looking really good. So we'll see, once it's all official I'll be really excited!

Caden Formal Pic. '15


Here's Caden posing for his 5th year pic. He is getting so big! He went to his check-up and he was very brave and very excited to hear he didn't have to get any shots or pokey's. The Dr. said he is doing great. He now weighs 43 lbs. and is 42 ½" long.

Caden Birthday '15


Caden's 5th b-day party was a success! He had his 1st official family/friends Super Hero Party. He had a blast and loved his cake, presents and having his friends/cousins over. A big thank you to all who came and celebrated this special day with him/us. We can't believe he is now 5 yrs. old. Our little Manling is getting so big!!!
