KIT with us

I know it has been soooooooooooo long since I posted and I am hoping that this will be a new start to a better blogger:) We are slowly house hunting! We dont want to rush it but we are looking for a fixer upper. So that should be fun:) Kevin- He is soooo busy at work! But thats a good thing:) HE is able to come home for lunch alot of days which is soo nice! I love spending as much time with his as I can. HE is going to start mountain bike riding with some guys from work I am glad he'll be able to do that! Missa- I have been sewing lots:) Ill post the things later. I am also trying to find new things for our family to do! I am surprised at how much there is to do here in COlumbus. Indee- Is potty training. She is doing so well. she has had a few accidents and has trouble going number 2 in the toilet. in fact we have yet to see that happen:) Krew- is so happy and big. in the 3% for height and 63% for weight so he is short and chubby:) I LOVE it! He is crawling and climbing himself up on EVERYTHING but he has no desire to walk. He wont even walk whie holding my fingers! I love my family and I am so blessed to be able to have them! Columbus is warming up to me:) but i am so grateful that we have this great oppurtunity to be here:)

President Linda Burton

So yup she came here to Indianapolis. Our stake president asked her to come and she said YES! I really needed to hear her speak. She spoke on Temples and the blessings it can bring to your home, family, marriage, and your neighbors around you. So I think I will try harder to make it to the temple and maybe that will help things feel better here:) We are going to have a temple built in Indianapolis. The dedication is in 2 years:) Until then we will travel to Louisville, KY and go there. Its about 2 hours away.


To be totally honest I have been having a really hard time here in Columbus lately. Its hard going from a place like Wymount where I can see friends everyday and also have friends for Indee to play with to not really having that. I know that knowwhere else on earth will be like it was in Wymount but I wish I could bring it with me everywhere I go. :) But Kevin has been so good in trying to make it better for the both of us. So after we put the kids to bed he did this for me...
But Indee kept yelling for something else literally from 730pm-1030 pm. We had 2 poopie pullups in that time as well! lol... but it was still fun even if every 5 minutes we had to do something else for her! lol

Sick in Columbus

My kids have had some bad coughs here in Columbus. They got them in utah too. But this particular day they lounged out in PJS all day and watched movies. My poor babies

Indee in Columbus

I think Indee has had a harder time being here. She came from a place where she could play with the same friends every day, almost all day. And now its hard to be able to do. Practically impossible. I try to take her somewhere every morning or most mornings. But she doesnt play with kids like she used to and she has a REALLY hard time playing with new people. She just doesnt. After at least an hour of encouraging her to play with someone new she will but by then we or they are leaving. I feel bad for her. Here she is after dressing herself:)
She LOVES helping me. If I am doing dishes, she wants to help. IF I am cooking, she wants to help. If I am cleaning the bathroom, she wants to help. She is always finding ways to help me:)
At the firestation with her joyschool class. She liked it until the fireman got dressed into his gear. She lost it after that. She was so freaked out.
Proof that she loved this car at some point so that when she turns 16 she cant complain:) lol
This "meow" used to hang out by our house and she loved to play with it. IT was great because we got a pet without having to do anything for it! :) Sadly our neighbors moved and took the kitty with them. No more free pets!
Indee on her first horse ride. We went to Apple Works apple orchard. It was so fun. She rode a choo choo train, rode on a horse, got to pet animals, play in hay and all kinds of fun stuff. We were going to take a hay ride and pick our own pumpkin but we had a melt down so we went and ate dinner instead:)
She never stops making me laugh! She is soo fun! Here she is picking the coins out of the fountain! lol... I made her put them back...

Krewson in Columbus

Krewson is soo happy all the time. In fact when we took him in for his 6 mos check the nurse asked if he was always that happy. I said yes. Then we saw the dr. He came in and told us KRew had a very bad ear infection in BOTH ears!! The dr said if he were to rate it with 10 being the worse he would give it a 10! I felt so bad. Krew was just too happy for me to think anything was wrong. He does get ear infections so often and so bad that he does need tubes. Poor guy. We meet with the ENT on Halloween to sched a date! Here he is with a truck from Papa Mark
Our happy boy..
This is when I decided that he had outgrown his bassinet. lol. He's just a little crunched in there. Dont you think?
Having fun with mommy while daddy looks for glasses
His first big bonk on his head. I seriously cant remember how he got it.

Columbus Parks

So the parks here are AMAZING. I have never seen parks like I have here. And a major plus is they are FREE!! YAY! So needless to say we go often. This is the Commins! Indee loves climbing up the ship and insists that Kev or I go with her. Because Kevin is working I am usually the one that goes with her. Its pretty difficult scooting through the teeny spaces with Krew:)
Daddy is in trouble:) Indee is in love with this little boy Jack. His family moved up here from BYU about thte same time we did. They love playing together.
Indee Loves pushing Krew in the swing and Krew loves getting pushed in the swing by her:) They have so much fun together (alot of the time)

Fun times in Columbus

It was so hot when we got here. Litereally over 100 degrees aith 100% humidity. I had NEVER felt something that bad as to when I came here. So of course we would go and get ice cream when daddy would get home from work.
And bot did she love it...
We also came in time for the county fair. It was NOTHING like the Orangde County fair! lol But it was awesome! Indee got to play on a huge tractor and we got to see my first demolition derby. It wasnt just any derby, it was with LAWNMOWERS!!! lol so funny to watch. Then a couple days later we went back and watched the greased pig contest. We had our first fried oreos and fell in love:) Indee loved all the animals that they bring for their contests :) So fun and different! A great welcome to Columbus:)

Columbus Walks

So we made it out to Columbus. Most everyday of the summer we went on a little 3 mile walk. We (a friend and I) would usually stop at this park to let the kids play.
One day we found this in our way. YUCK!
