Sydney Feb. '15

Sydney had a good month this month.  She got to see where we are going to live, she's not too excited about moving away from her friends.  She'll come around, but she does like that we will be moving into our own house.

Here's some pic's we took of her this month.

This is what she made at school.

Sydney went to her friends house for a "Love" party, this is a picture they took while she was there.  She had lots of fun.
 What she got for Valentine's day!

Got a good deal on the new build we were thinking of doing, so that's what we have decided to do instead. We're doing our pre-construction meeting at the end of Feb. - then let the building commence. I believe it will be done by the beginning of June. Pretty exciting stuff!!!
Emc Faris - Where is this gonna be
Kris Kemp-Erickson - We're not saying on facebook, buy I'll message you.
Carmen Remington Jacobus - I wanna know tooo
Janice Ford Hatfield - Well, I'd like to know too, but if not, I'll find out from Oh and Kris your name is in the temple almost every week.

I would say don't go into a relationship thinking you are going to change, reform or SAVE anyone. People change because they want to, not because someone is trying to change, reform or save them. I've found that my husband and I have changed over the years because we love the other person and want to make them happy, but not because we were trying to change, reform or save them. Choosing who you marry is the most important decision you will ever make (my Mother taught me that and she was right), who you marry effects every part of your life. So choose wisely.
Brent Isom - Well said
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - You are just amazing Kris  Love you!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Well thanks, you are quite Amazing yourself! Love you very much.

Thinking of how blessed I am. Thank you Heavenly Father/Mother & Jesus for all you have done and blessed me with. I am so grateful for the blessings I have received and the family and friends I have. Things have not always been easy, but I am one lucky lady.
Brent Isom - Good things and blessings come to good people.

I need to remember this.

We had family home evening last night. For our treat we had root-beer floats. The kids didn't care for them too much, they just wanted regular ice cream. I guess it's just me that likes them.
Brent Isom - That sounds really good
Janice Ford Hatfield - You're kidding right? I grew up with A&W, car hops and frosty
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Nope they didn't like the bubbles. But to be fair we don't let our kids drink carbonated drinks, so their not really use to that kind of drink. I use to drink soda, but I stopped a long time ago and now I can't drink them anymore. My body stopped being able to digest them. The only way I can now is if it's in this form. lol
Kris Kemp-Erickson - I sure enjoyed it though.
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - Yum .. not many of my family likes them either. . Weirdos!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yeah I don't get it, I think it's yummy.

Rachel Bryan Baggiore - Happy Valentines day
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Thanks, you too!

Going to be a fun week. We are going to do our pre-construction meeting this week for building our new house - we get to pick out all the colors and stuff like that. No one seems to know we are building a house. I'm not posting where on facebook. If you want to know I can message you, but you can't say where on facebook. We're very excited and nervous (this is our first home) - it's a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1 level with a 2 car garage. We're just excited to be getting into our very own and new place - it should be done by the beginning of June! If you want to see what it will look like when it's done (different colors & landscaping of course) - go to our family blog and take a look (look for the post "Building a House").

Building a House

Here's some pic's we took of the place we are building our new house on.  We are just in the beginning stages of having it built - it should be done by the beginning of June.  We are going to pick out the colors and what not this week (I'll add more pic's later).  We are excited and nervous all at the same time.  This is our first home - it is a 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 1 level with a 2 car garage.

This is a picture of the lot we are buying/building our house on.  And some pic's of the day we signed the papers on it!
Sydney was almost 7 & Caden is 5 in these pictures.
The kids showing their grumpy faces as best they could.
The kids running and playing on our new lot.

Here's the street view.

Here's what our house plan looks like & the front of what our house will look like once it has been built (this is a house that is similar to our house plan - ours will look a little different of course).

Here's some of the colors and things we've picked out for our new house.

For the floors that aren't carpet.
 Two-tone paint (tan walls with white trim).
Cabinets and kitchen table top.

Jason Birthday '15

We had a fun time celebrating Jason's birthday this year.  He got some great stuff - the kids gave him a gift cards for one of his favorite online games.  Kris got him a movie, a new mouse for his computer and another gift card for another online game he likes.

Here's some pic's I (Kris) took.

Jason doesn't like cake, so I made him a great big cookie.  The kids like to call it a cookie pizza or pie!
