Kennedie turned 4 yesterday!!

My little girl Kennedie turned 4 yesterday! Yea, I know, I'm a day late. Kennedie is by far my most active child. She is a social butterfly and loves to be the center of attention. She came into this world with a broke arm and collar bone, but that didn't stop her. She was healed in 2 weeks and was ready to roll.

Kennedie walked at 9 months old and everyone said she was moving out of the way for another one, which they were right, because I got pregnant with Kadence when she was 10 months old.

My dad grilled hamburgers at his house for her birthday and my Meme made her a cake. We plan to have another party for her next weekend too with the rest of the family. I'll leave you with a few pics of Kennedie. Enjoy!

Happy Birthday to my little princess Kennedie! I love you!!

A Little of what I've been up too

I know I've been horrible at posting for quite some time now! I keep thinking about it and just don't do it! Sorry all. I've been painting the house (inside) and organizing a lot! I needed to bad. With four kids, stuff tends to accumulate. Lots of stuff!

The kids are enjoying the summer. I wish I was off to enjoy it with them! Kennedie will be 4 on Monday and I will do a birthday post then. She is such a mess and thinks she's 16 already! Stratton is probably going to a football camp that's coming up next month at our local college. Trenton is just Trenton, sweet and a cuddler! Baby girl Kadie is becoming a handful! She's working on potty training, but doesn't quite have it down yet. I can't wait until she does! No more diapers then! Yay! It is a little sad though, because she is my last baby and that will make her not so much of a baby anymore.

It is sooo hot here already and I can only imagine how much hotter it will get throughout the summer! Ugh!!

My best friend is pregnant with her first baby and is due in December and so is Jody's brother's wife! Something was in the water around that time! I am excited to have two little ones to play with though! I love babies! Especially when I can send them home!

Work is ok, but I'm still looking for a better paying job. I really want to get a State job, but they are just hard to get in to. I've applied for 3 and there will be 2 more open soon. Maybe I'll get one of them!

I'm going to try to make my rounds and catch up on blog reading soon. Sorry for my lack of posts and visiting! See ya soon! Take care and God Bless!

Grilling Tips from Mike Davis (Giveaway!)

Father's Day is a time to spend with family. Dad's like to fire up the grill, but grilling can lead to heartburn which can lead to a not-so-happy cookout! Mike Davis, the National Champion Pit Master of Lotta Bull BBQ in Oklahoma shared some secrets for my readers on how to grill in how demand this Father's Day!

Here's Mike Davis' tips:

*When cooking larger cuts of meat, always use an indirect heat as a source. Using the direct heat method will char the outside of the meat without allowing the inside to cook properly.
*When grilling, use a "smoker" box of aromatic hardwoods such as mesquite, hickory or pecan to give that distinctive wood smoked flavor.
Use olive oil or any other cooking oil to coat the surface of vegetables to add crispness and to hold on spices and seasonings.
*Using a spray or baste during cooking will help keep the meat moist and flavorful and will help to keep the meat from drying out during the cooking process.
*A mustard slather can be used to thoroughly coat the meat to help hold spices and seasonings in place during preparation.
*Pay careful attention to pork and poultry when grilling, you must make sure both meats are properly cooked through.
*Always grill in a well ventilated area, away from eaves and overhangs that can trap toxic fumes.
*Just like I prepare for my competitions, frequent heartburn sufferers should come prepared to enjoy the foods you love and start your 14-day course of Prilosec OTC in advance of your BBQ event.

I was sent some awesome Nascar swag, including cd's featuring some of the best moments in Nascar, driver cards, and hats!
