Over the past week or so, I've taken a number of videos of Kennedy walking, but this one was too funny not to post. She is carrying a bottle of mustard she got out of the fridge! Now, I don't know for sure if she's really saying, "yeah" and "oh yeah", but it sure sounds like it, doesn't it?!!

Faubel Family Adventure!

My family came to visit last week. My Mom and Dad and sisters drove all the way from Chicago with 5 kids, all under the age of 5! All the kids showed up ready to go! We had such a great time hanging out, shopping, and eating! Have you ever tried to feed 6 kids at once? You should have seen my kitchen after every meal. It was an adventure, but we LOVED it! The house is so quiet now that they are gone. Come back soon...we miss you already!

Birthday pics and a trip to the beach!

Kennedy had a fantastic first birthday! Aunt Megan & Uncle Steve came to visit, and Grammie Nana and Grandpa came over to celebrate. Kennedy got a new wagon and LOTS of other fun stuff. Click on the video to see her enjoying her birthday cake!
After the BIG BIRTHDAY, we headed to Charleston to spend some time with Matt's family. Kennedy got to play at the pool, go to the beach and even enjoy lunch at the "fancy" Sanctuary Hotel. Thanks to everyone for a great time!
