Locked Out!

I had quite the scary experience last Saturday, right now McKenna is going through a phase where she loves closing doors and locking them. Our bathrooms doors are all more often than not locked, same thing with my bedroom door.
So on Saturday McKenna and I ran to the grocery store, when we got home I was unloading the groceries, I put my purse in the house along with McKenna. I had one more bag and a gallon of milk to grab, I had them both and was walking into my house when McKenna closed the door and locked it! I had no idea what to do, my purse, my phone, along with my keys and Daves' were all in the house! I totally panicked, I ran around to all of the doors, but I knew they would all be locked, I am much too anal about that kind of thing. Then I ran back to the garage door and spent the next five minutes trying to convince McKenna to open the door for me. I could hear her playing with the doorknob, but no such luck on actually unlocking it.
I then ran as fast as I could over to Stephanie and Derek's house! I crying pretty hard by this time because I had to idea how we were going to get into my house! Derek and Stephanie were wonderful, they dropped what they were doing (getting ready for Miri's 4th birthday party) and Derek ran back to my house and Stephanie gave me her phone so I could call Dave. Dave was amazing, he game up with a fabulous solution to get into our house that didn't involve breaking any windows or doors,and was so calm! Derek was able to get into our house and unlock the door in just a minute or two! When he got into the house McKenna was totally fine, she had gone through the groceries and had gotten out the cookies and was walking around the house with them.
I can't tell you how hard I prayed that McKenna would be okay until we were able to get to her. I know it wasn't that big of an emergency looking back now, but I can't tell you how helpless I felt when my baby was in the house getting into who knows what, and I couldn't do a thing to get to her. I feel so blessed that we have family that lives so close, it was such a wonderful comfort knowing that I could run to Stephanie and Derek and know that they would do whatever they could to help me. I am so blessed!

Snow Bunny!

Kenna all ready to go out and play in the snow!

Sunday was the first time we dressed Kenna in her snowsuit and taken her outside to play in the snow. It was so cute because she didn't really know what to think of it. Her snowsuit is great because it makes her as wide as she is tall, but at least it keeps her warm! I am sure you have noticed, but we don't have gloves that actually fit her yet, so the whole time she was trying to take them off! Her favorite part of it was helping Dave shovel the driveway and sidewalk. Next time we will have to make a snowman!

Check out McKenna on tomorrow!

Today I had to run to Babysteals to pick up a gift I purchased for my niece, I took McKenna with me because she is my little buddy, and she always comes with me. Anyway, when I walked in the showroom a lady yells "A baby, not only that, but a cute baby!" When I take Kenna places I am used to people commenting on how cute she is, (what can I say, my baby is cute), but this was a little over the top! Then the lady comes over and explains that she is the photographer for Babysteals and needs a cute kid to model the shoes that they are selling tomorrow. They couldn't have picked a more perfect product for McKenna to model, because she LOVES shoes. I have to say at that point I was feeling a little embarrassed because I just grabbed Kenna after her nap, and she wasn't exactly looking her best, but what can I say, the lady still thought she was cute! The shoes will be posted tomorrow morning at 9am, and they will be up on the website until 9pm. Needless to say, McKenna is making her modeling debut tomorrow on! Check her out!

Halloween Pictures!

I know that Halloween was last weekend, but I have some great pictures that I couldn't resist sharing! Kenna's 2nd Halloween wasn't a great success, unfortunately. It was raining so hard on Saturday night that we ended up only going to 5 houses and by that point she was crying, cold, wet, and pretty much miserable. In her defense, I do have to say that we have all been sick on and off for the last month, so when we left to go trick or treating she wasn't feeling too great to start with. So she went took her home and put her to bed, which she was completely happy with. Maybe we will have better luck next year.

On Sunday, Halloween, we ate dinner at the Garlicks and were able to see all of McKenna' s cousins in their great costumes, and then we went over to my families and saw everyone. Overall it was a pretty good Halloween!

McKenna was pretty much done with pictures by this point

You will notice that all you can see is Kenna's bum? Yes, that is because she was determined to go back into the house! This gets harder and harder with the more Grandkids!
