Disney on Ice

A few months ago Karlie got an e-mail from her papa asking if she would like to go with him to Disney on Ice. He even asked that she bring Kaden and Cooper with her. Kyle's dad wanted to do something for the kids so he reserved a suite at the AAC and got tickets for himself, Denise, McKenzie, Karlie, Kyle, me, Laura, Keith, Morgan, Grace, my mom & dad, Tracie, Bryan, Kade, Cooper, and Christopher & Danielle (Laura's neice and nephew). We had such a good time seeing the expressions on the kids faces. Karlie was a little to young to understand, but the others loved it!

We all had a great time! Thank you Tom and Denise for taking us to Disney on Ice!

We love you,

Time for some oatmeal.

At Karlie's 4 month checkup the doctor said I could wait until six months to start baby food or I could go ahead and start giving it to her. I decided I wanted to try it out and see how it went. This is the reaction I got...

I can't decide if this is a Clark, Carpenter, Jackson or Crocker fit! She was not happy about it. She was spitting it out at me and screaming! Needless to say, she's not ready just yet. We will put it away and try again next month! Sorry Karlie!

Love,
Shanda

Kami's Wedding

My cousin Kami got married tonight so we decided to leave Karlie with a sitter and have a night to ourselves. My aunts weren't to happy about that, but oh well! Aunt Mary and Uncle Al kept Karlie, Kaden and Cooper, what braves souls they are! I decided to take some cute pictures of Karlie before we left in her shorts. I love her chubby little legs in shorts!

We had a great time seeing everyone and the wedding was beautiful! I should have taken more pictures, but I didn't. Her colors were hot pink and lime green! It looked so good together!

4 Month Check-Up

Karlie is officially 4 months old today so I took her to get her second round of shots. NO FUN! Kyle and I like to guess how much she weighs each time and are always interested to see how long she will be. She is VERY short still, but I'm her mom so she will probably always be "petite." Today she weighed 14 lbs. 6 oz.(75% percentile) and was 15 3/4 inches long (45% percentile). She only cried a little during the shots, but she was fine after she got her Binky. Here are some pictures I took later that night. Kyle LOVED the band aids they gave her.

A day at the Arboretum or is that White Rock Lake...

Tracie and I have been planning to go to the Arboretum for weeks. We decided that we would pack a picnic and take our cameras and get lots of pictures of the kids with the flowers. I invited Megan and Mom and Joey were in too! We got up early packed up lunch and the kids and were off. When we got there the parking lot was closed because it was full, but there was overflow parking and a shuttle a mile or two down the road. We decided to go check it out. When we rounded the corner, the line was about a mile long of people waiting to get on the bus to go to the Arboretum. What a mess! After a little disappointment, we decided to take our picnic to White Rock Lake instead. There were no pretty flowers, but we still had a good time. I got some pictures but they're not as good as Megan's. You can see hers at

Thanks for a great day at the lake everyone! I have learned my first lesson about putting sunblock on Karlie. Make sure you cover EVERY piece of skin that is showing. Oops! She didn't act like it bothered her!

Love,
Shanda
