Facebook Happenings for June '15


Facebook Happenings for June '15

Some things you might have missed on facebook.

June 7, 2015
Last night was fun - had our family night (FHE). We discussed what the golden rule was and how we should apply it to our everyday lives, played some games. Than for our treat we had chocolate covered strawberries. And we're doing a movie night tonight (popcorn, strawberry lemonade and treats are a given). Love spending time with my kiddos and hubby. They are the best part of my life, I don't know what I would do without them. Love them so very much!!! Happy Sunday all, time to feed the kiddos lunch and get ready for church.

Had a fire outside in our fire pit the other night and made s'mores and then we took the kids over to the carnival. We had fun with both, the kids and I love making s'mores. Plus the kids liked the rides and eating snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy. Gotta love spending time with the family and summer vacation.

We all had fun at the Orem summerfest today. The kids sure liked doing some arts & crafts, getting animal balloons, their faces painted and of course enjoying a snow cone. Spoiled kids we have, but we sure love them! Sydney got her hair done by some talented girls from Paul Mitchell school of hair. Caden got a snake and spider-man web on his face and Sydney got a cat balloon and a butterfly painted on her face. The kids liked making the arts & crafts the best. It was fun to see my niece/nephew in-law's booth - they have some great bows and arrows!

Well it's been an eventful summer thus far. Sydney & her friend Ani cut Sydney's hair and a couple of weeks ago Caden & his friend broke some windows back in the shed so that's been fun. Sydney got a new haircut and Caden got to help clean up glass. I'll try and post some pic's on our family blog. Trying to keep an eye on these two and packing up a house isn't the easiest job in the world. unsure emoticon Good thing they are so cute and we love them very much! Let's just hope that is all that will happen this summer - well as far as bad things go.

Happy Father's Day to the best Dad our kids could have. Jason is such a wonderful Dad! He's always working so hard to give his own kids what they need and plays with or spends time with them and always there for them. To my own father he is such a good Dad, always there for me and worked very hard to give us what we needed. Thank you to both of them - love you both and am so grateful for all you do!!! I also want to wish my Heavenly Father - I'm so grateful for him and all he does for me. Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!

Jason had a good father's day. He got some gift cards, chocolate chip cookies & reese's peanut butter cups his favorites and a new office chair for his new office. I/we feel so lucky & blessed to have him in our lives - he's the best, we appreciate and love him so much!!!

Kris Kemp-Erickson I also want to wish my own Father, brother's & brother in-law a very happy Father's day. I've already said and given my Dad his present! But you are all great father's and great examples to me. Love you all very much! James Kemp, Ryan Heath, John Kemp, Jason Kemp, Jared Kemp.

Hanging out with my kids and smiling at how cute they are when they watch funny cat videos - they love watching this stuff, they just laugh and laugh. I sure love these two awesome kids!

I forgive so the anger doesn't ruin me and because the Lord tells me to. I don't forget not because I can't, but so I don't continue to make the same mistake in trusting them and getting hurt. I'm grateful for the the gift of forgiveness, if I am forgiven how can I not forgive others.
Comments:
Belinda Robinson - Forgiveness is a requirement from God. Trust has to be earned.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Couldn't agree more!

Our loan has officially gone to USDA, now we just have to wait for them to process our loan and then we can close on our house - YAY! We are hoping to close around July 14th and move on the 18th, cross our fingers - keep us in your prayers if you can please and thank you!!!!
Comments:
Beth Strickler - Close of escrow ..my three favorite words
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - How come it took so long? Just wondering to prepare us for closing with a usda loan
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Well our taxes made things difficult because of Jason's side business thing, so we had to work around that - that's part of the reason why it's taken so long. The other is USDA back in Mar. was only taking about 3 days to process a loan, now with peop...See More
Rachel Bryan Baggiore - I'm hoping for you too!! We will close November/December so hopefully there won't be lots of buyers making things drag on
Kris Kemp-Erickson Thanks! Yeah hopefully it will be fairly fast, I've heard Jan. is a big time too. But I don't know for sure.
Sarah Johnson - I am impressed you've gotten so far with the usda, I've heard those loans take a long time and you have to wait. Good luck! It's so exciting to get your own place.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yeah we've had to wait for a while now, just a little bit longer now - hopefully about 2-3 more weeks. But it will be worth it in the end. We're excited to have a house of our own!  Jason's friend Trapper had to wait 3 mo.
Dawne Roper - Sweet, we will be around to help then!
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Yay, thanks!
Dawne Roper - Of course, just keep me posted
Kris Kemp-Erickson - Will do.
Kris Kemp-Erickson - That is if it doesn't change, which I'm sure it will.

Had a good Saturday thus far. We had a big breakfast with french toast, eggs, bacon and sausage - yum. Then I got to go to my cousins bridal shower, so happy for her. Got to play bingo, haven't played that in years. Glad my Aunt Pat is doing better. We're having a family movie night tonight with treats, popcorn and licorish of course. It's been a good day - love spending time with my family.

Sydney June '15


Sydney had a good month this month.  She's playing up a storm and enjoying being home for summer break.  They may fight, but they also love each other very much!  I'm so glad they have each other.

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

Father's Day '15


Jason had a good Father's Day.  He is such a good Dad, I am so thankful for how hard he works for all of us, how he spends time with our kids and is always there for them when they need him.  He's a great role model for our kids and they are some lucky kids to have him as he is a lucky man to have them.  We feel so lucky and blessed to have him.  He's the best, we appreciate and love him so much!!!!

He got some gift cards, some chocolate chip cookies & reese's peanut butter cups his favorites and a new office chair for his new office.

Ooops! (6-17-15)


Well it's been an eventful summer thus far.  Sydney & her friend Ani cut Sydney's hair and a couple of weeks ago Caden & his friend Dylan broke some windows back in the shed so that's been fun.  Sydney got a new haircut and Caden got to help clean up glass.  Trying to keep an eye on these two and packing up a house isn't the easiest job in the world

Here's some pic's we took.

The haircut Sydney and her friend did.
After when the hair salon cut it.

This is one of the section of windows that Caden & Dylan broke.
Two little rascals picking up the mess.

Good thing they are so cute and we love them very much!  Let's just hope that is all that will happen this summer - well as far as bad things go.

Summer Fun (6-13-15)


We sure are having fun this summer.  The kids like being out of school.  Sydney misses her friends and teachers, but Caden likes having his sister around more.  Making S'mores of course - wouldn't be summer without them.  We have gone to the water park a couple of times, and we've gone to two carnivals already.  Looking forward to moving into our new house (hopefully around the 2nd week of July - we'll see).  Lots of exciting things to come this summer.

Here's some pic's I've taken thus far.

Making S'mores - yum!  Can't forget to make some S'mores in the backyard on the fire-pit - that's a must for every summer/fall and of course when you go camping.

Carnivals gotta love 'em!  Riding the rides, eating the yummy food, and seeing the fun booth with cool stuff.  The kids liked eating snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy, making arts & crafts, getting animal balloons and getting their faces painted.  Spoiled kids we have, but we sure love them!  Sydney got a cat balloon and Caden got a snake balloon.   It was fun to see my niece/nephew in-law's booth - they have some great bows and arrows.

Playing at the splash pad park (Pioneer park in Provo, UT).  The kids really like playing at this park.  Sydney's friend Ani came with us.  And Caden met a friend there too.  They sure had some great fun.
