So i have started wondering lately where my little girl went!! All of a sudden Addison seems so big. It is kinda sad...I asked her if she could please stop growing and she told me no... how rude is that?! She was in her first Primary program... she was so excited to talk in the microphone. we practiced her part (Heavenly Father Sent us to Earth) over and over again. As we were practicing she asked me if everyone got to stand at the microphone to sing. I told her no, everyone just stands up to sing. I saw a little twinkle in her eye and she said... "mom I have an idea... maybe i can stand and sing at the microphone and everyone else can just stand!" hahaha!!! I warned her that probably wasn't a possibility :) Although she was so excited to talk (or sing) in the microphone... she said nothing when it was time for her part. She later told me there were just too many people. Maybe if she was going up to sing... and had 100 back up singers she wouldn't have been so scared :) Love this girl!!!

This photos were, of course, done by my fantastic bro... check him out
And these cute hats?! from my cousin...

For my Grandpa...

Three months after my sweet Grandma died, My wonderful, adorable Grandpa joined her. I knew that this was coming, in fact he has been so sick the past couple years that we have been expecting him to go at any time. although it is a pure blessing that he is out of pain and even more that he is with my grandma again... i will miss him desperately!! He was just one of those sweet grandpas that adopted grandkids wherever he went. He knew my friends, and asked about them. He even was out there lookin for a husband for some of them :) He had the kindest heart. He ALWAYS made me feel so special, if I was having a bad day... i knew I could call my grandma and grandpa and they would help me feel better. No matter what i knew he loved me... and would do anything in the world for me and for me to be happy. He got really close to Addison the past couple months... he LOVED her and she LOVED him. They would just tease eachother all the time. He is the one that introduced snowmobiling to our family... LOVE it! i have so many memories of going up to Diamond Field Jack to jump on the sleds... if we were lucky we got to ride with him and we would sing all the way up the canyon... my favorites were You are my sunshine and Skeeters and the Bedbugs... lol... we would sing those songs over and over! My Grandpa taught me so much... he even taught me how to Waltz... how cute is that?! He was such an amazing example of service; He was always serving his family, friends, even strangers. I am so gratefeul that I had him in my life... I am so grateful and honored to be able to call him my Grandpa!!!! So... Grandpa... I love you so much... I will miss you more than words can express... I will miss our talks even our political ones (even though I don't know much about that stuff... it was always so fun to listen to you go off about it :) ) I will miss your hugs and your amazing stories... I am so happy to know you are with grandma... probably dancing :) Give her a big hug for me...I know you both will be lookin out for all us. You will forever be in my heart... and I will forever be your Kimmy Kae! Love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For my Grandma...

My sweet Grandma Idaho (Perkins) passed away yesterday. I just feel like I need to do a tribute to her. She was seriously amazing. I can still hear her say... Now Kim I do not like you talking on the phone while you are driving... lol. I heard that ALOT!!! We used to talk on the phone all the time (usually when I was driving :) ) I would tell her everything... and she always was so excited for me to call and hear my stories. i would get lectures every now and then... I loved them. She was just so sweet. She loved Addison and would always ask... how's our baby boots doin? (Baby boots?!?! LOL) She always loved hearing stories about Addison and then would tell the rest of the family. Growing up I used to love to go spend a week up in Idaho with her. She would make matching outfits for my cousin and me. She was just always so happy. We used to go up to idaho to surprise them... we would leave just in time so we would get there right before their church got out so we could surprise them when they came home. You could tell by talking to her, or even watching her, that she loved the gospel. I always knew she had a testimony and she was always so willing to serve in the church, and loved all the callings she had. I look up to her so much. She loved her family and always put them first. I am so lucky to have a grandma like her... (in fact... both of my grandmas were amazing women. You actually should all be jealous of how great my grandmas were. :) ) I always knew she was just a phone call away. So to my grandma... I will miss you so much, I will miss our talks, I will miss your hugs and your laugh. Please watch over me, give my Grandma Butterfield and Grandma Rose a big hug for me, I know you are in a better place and I know that I will get to see and talk to you again. I love you so much and am so glad you are my grandma. Thanks for every thing you have done for me... Love you... Bubbles (yes I know its a weird nick name but thats what she called me :) )

Addison had her first soccer game today... it was the cutest thing I have EVER seen. She was more interested in posing for pics and waving to us than the ball... but she played really good. Its so fun to see her growing up. She was having a blast... and she thinks she is pretty cool... which she totally is right?! love her!!!!!

A Night on the Town????

A couple nights ago we were getting settled ready for bed... I thought at least... I was finishing up a few things and look over and there is Addison with my high heels, jewelry and even my make up on. She was walkin around like she was ready to hit up a club. Kinda wish i had the need to get ready and party at 10:30 still.... :)

Snowmobiling 2010!!!

Snowmobiling time is here!!! YAY!!! We took our annual trip to Diamond Field Jack... loved it. This time I got to take my fabulous friend, Jen Riches, with us and we had an amazing time. My beautiful Grandma and Grandpa Perkins, whom I might add founded this family tradition, was able to come up and take some pics with us. Jen and I had a blast... Addison LOVES her. Its been way too long. And how could we be friends for so long and she had never been snowmobiling!! It was a perfect day!!! Nothin better than family and friends getting together for some great time in the snow!! :)
