WAY behind...

Have you ever noticed that when you go on vacation and get back, things seem 50% more messy than when you left? I swear, my house was almost spotless and now, I have a ton of things to get done before the missionaries come over for dinner. *sigh* well, I'm planning an easy (my favorite thing in the world) meal, shredded chicken and shipwreck rice (that's for you dad lol!) My thanks to my beautiful new sister-in-law Courtney for the base recipe, I do more to the rice simply because Tyler likes more "stuff" in his burrito. But it's super easy, super quick, and very yummy. :D Anyway, I should probably put some trip pictures up so you all can see how much fun we had. :D Enjoy!! And back to work.

Grandpa Hale and Naomi and Kari.

Happy Birthday Kari!!!

Posing for the camera

Playing with what she won at Chuck E Cheese

I don't think she'd decided if she liked the rides or not.

She liked the big rat at Chuck E cheese

No more cake!!!!

Talking on Grandma's cell phone. :D

Lots to do....

Okay so we're going home for a couple weeks and we leave on MONDAY, which means that mom (me) has about a billion and one things to do before we're ready to go. Remember when you could just pack your clothes, makeup, and hair dryer and you're good to go? Not anymore, you have to have diapers, and snacks for the plane, and toys for the plane, and heaven forbid if you forget her dolly and bunny rabbit. lol! Don't get me wrong, I'm excited and Kari is a pretty laid back traveler but going on "vacation" always seems like more work for me. lol!! But, I am so excited. Kari will get to see lots of cousins, especially little Naomi, and Tyler will get to meet my sister and her kids. It will be lots of fun. And all the Haueters will be in town!! I get a two for one special!! :D Okay, so I have to add some pictures. Kari in the red dress is a dress that I wore when I was her age (thank you mom) and then the last one is Tyler and Karielle on Father's Day before church. Enjoy! And most of you, I'll see on Tuesday!! :D
