Go Kayleigh! It's your birthday!

LOL Ok well I haven't gone to sleep yet so it still kinda counts as my birthday! I've had alot of excitement going on. I think my 23rd has been my greatest birthday so far!!

I started Friday night by passing my training class in the nick of time! Richard and I, and 2 other couples, spent the saturday and part of Sunday in Park City. We stayed at the Marriott Mountainside and I highly recommend it.(Assuming you are debt free and have saved the $380 per night in your nifty cash envelope!) This place was AMAZING! There were 5 hot tubs steaming in the cold winter air. We rocked some Kareoke. The boys went snowboarding while the girl hit the outlets. And at the end of the night we sleptin candlelit bedrooms with the most comfy hotel mattress known to man!

Today I got phone calls and texts from the bunches of people who love me and I love them back. Dad and Christy took me out to lunch. Everyone was super sweet!Thanks a bunch!

Oh and I almost forgot! Grandma B made my favorite roast for dinner on Sunday. What a sweetie! And on thursday Richard brought me a big bouquet of "Just for being amazing" flowers . Did I hear a unanimous "AWWWWWWW"? LOL Have a happy week everyone.

Emotional Spectrum

It was a pretty crazy day around these parts yesterday. I'll start with the happy happy news. My little teensy tiny bundle of smiles had her first bite of cereal! Yay!! Of course she spit it all out about fifty times while I scooped it back in, but I insist thats a natural tongue movement and not disgust.

On the sad side of the spectrum, the world lost a great great man. Uncle Freddie, brad's great uncle on his moms side, passed away. Not too many of my people got the chance to meet him. Ill tell you a few of the many wonderful things about him.
He greeted every woman he knew with a kiss on both cheeks.
He never let the moment slip by to tell you how beautiful or handsom you looked.
He knew every Tony award winner since the beginning of time!
He sang show tunes at random moments and made happy birthday sound like a masterpiece.
He had the funniest jokes and they were just a little dirtier than you would expect.

In his day Uncle Freddie was quite the star.If you want to get a small glimpse of his shining spirit(and I recommend you do) you can see him in the movie "The RM." He plays the crazy grandpa who wants to serve everyone half cooked hamburgers.LOL.

I loved Uncle Freddie and am so honored I got the chance to know him. I want to end on a happy note. So when Caydance was upset because she couldnt visit Uncle Freddie in Heaven, we explained to her that hes happy up there and with the people he loves. Caydanc will now tell you "Uncle Freddie lives in Heaven with Jesus and his Mommy but we cant sleepover."
