New Year and Can you believe it.....5 Years?

Well as you might know or maybe you don't.......Today 5 years ago I was walking down the aisle. Wow that is amazing. My first thought is.....we MADE it 5 years!!! Haha!!

Last night Kevin and I looked at our wedding pictures and pondered life a little. We looked at pictures and thought of the people that are still married, now divorced, now married, passed away, we still talk to, never talk to and pretty much just how much life has changed in 5 years. I must say life is good, actually life is Great. God is truly amazing.

Married 5 years and we have been blessed with Emma, Kevin's work is awesome (that's always a plus!!), We are serving and worshipping God at an amazing church, My mom has her OWN place (love you mom!!), We have amazing friends and family, and most of all we are all Healthy (to my knowledge).

One really special thing...I see my dad and that side of my family more then I ever thought I would and my relationship with my dad over the past 5 years has really transformed and grown (I love you dad, Yvonne and Jackie!!)

I love you Kevin and I look forward to taking on the next 5 years with you, thank you for being an amazing husband who realizes his faults and loves me for all mine. You are an amazing daddy who adores Emma and loves doing things with her that most dads don't or don't have the time to do. I love you for those things and many more.

So I wonder where the next 5 years will take us?

So I Think I'm going to give Blogging a Try?

I'm going to give this whole blogging thing a try so that everyone who cares can check in from time to time and get an update on the King Family. I'm mostly excited to share all the new things Emma does!! She is growing up so fast and I want to be able to share it with family and friends, especially those that we don't get to see as often.

Well Happy New Year Everybody!!! 2008 .....Can you believe it? We are very excited for the New Year, excited to see what 2008 holds! We had a really awesome Christmas.....very busy!! I cooked my first Turkey on Christmas day....WOW that was an adventure! The turkey turned out wonderful....YEA ME!!! The week after Christmas my dad, stepmom and sister Jaclynn came out to stay with us for a few days. We had so much fun!!! We took Jaclynn to Build A Bear for her Christmas gift....Emma and Jaclynn built adorable bears!!! Emma warmed up to her "Gapa" on about the 2nd day and loved spending every minute with "Jackie"!!! She still mentions "Jackie"!

So, New Year's Eve and Day....not so fun for me. I was randomly sick with the flu!!! Fever, chills and nausea.....YUCK!!! Emma ended up staying with her Grandma for a couple nights and Kevin had a fun New Year's Eve with our close friends.

Emma is back from Grandma's house and wow she has a little temper. I was thinking to myself....Can it already be the terrible twos?? Well it's not....while she was screaming at one point with her mouth wide opened I noticed that her 2 year old molars are coming in....yea for me, not so much!!!! Teething= crying, tantruming, impatient, screaming, snotty nose, clingy toddler ...which then= very unhappy and irritated MOMMY!!! We will get through it.....we always do!!!

Oh ya....exciting news though....last night randomly Emma went PEEPEE in the Potty!!!! It was a fluke thing but it was sooo cool to see PEE in her little Potty!!! She sits on it all the time but never is there PEE in there when she gets up!!! Kevin and I were SO excited about it and we made a HUGE deal about it!!! We jumped around clapping and sang "Emma went PeePee in the Potty"!!

So like I said I will give this blogging thing a try and let you all get a glimpse at MY LIFE.
