Huge Update!

Hello friends and Family!

So sorry for the delay in posts a lot has been going on in the Harkness house hold!
Will has been going to school to finish his bachelor's degree. He only has 3 semesters left!! Hooray!! It has been a hard adjustment having him in school. Me and the kids both miss him very much but he is very hard worker and has been doing great! He just finished his finals this week so we get to have him for the next 3 weeks!

In the last few months I have switched jobs and now I get to stay home with my kids. I love it! I watch 2 boys Max who is 3 and Ace who is 3 months. Yes I know what you are thinking....I am crazy because during the day, with my kids I have a 3 month, 1, 2 and 3 year old children!! Crazy but is very fun to be at home. Kaydence and max get a long great and she loves having a friend over everyday. I also starting teaching piano. I only have one student at the moment but I love it!

Kaydence is still her same self- bubbly, always on the move! Her vocabulary has grown to about 100 words per minute! lol! She tells me stuff and sometimes I have no idea where she heard it! But I love her!

Brennan is so dear. His big brown eyes just melt my heart. He turned one in august and is walking all over the place. He has really slimed down because he has to keep up with his sister. But oh I love him!!

Other then that we are just doing the same old stuff just a different day! We are so excited for Christmas and for santa to come this year. Will and I had a BLAST shopping for them. They aren't getting a whole lot because of course they have a ton of aunts, uncles, and grandmas and grandpas who are going to be spoiling them rotten but oh we can't wait for Christmas morning!!

More pictures to come!!

5 years!

Well we just celebrated our 5 year anniversary last thursday! I can't believe it has already been that long. What can we say over the last 5 years we have had 2 wonderful kids, bought a house, I graduated from college, we became and aunt and an uncle, and lots of other things that I don't have all day to sit and write! We've had our ups and downs and have learned a lot and have grown closer together. We are still learning a lot especially when it comes to being parents! Everyday brings something more and more exciting! I can't wait to see what the next 5 years will bring! Love you Will.

Finally the weather has decided it wants to be summer! Summer is my favorite time of year and not just for the good weather but the activites, food, fun days at the park, camping, hiking, swimming and of course my birthday (which is only in 3 weeks!!!!) So a couple of weekends ago we went to see my dad for father's day and he has a pool. Kaydence has loved swimming last year we took her a few times to the free days and she loved it. Well as you may know she has absolutely no fear whatsoever and of course she proved it yet again at my dad's house. She watched me jump of the diving board and she wanted to do it. I couldn't ump of fast enough to keep up with her she was right behid me. I would run and jump and pop up out of the water just in time to turn around and catch her and she jumped off. I was so much fun! We did have a little accident while we were there. She slipped on my feet and banged her eye into the table and cut her eye pretty good. If she would've hit a little harder she would have had to have stiches. But do you think that stopped her. NOPE not even ten minutes later she was saying "Come on mom, I go swimming". I just love her!
Brennan had a blast as well he loved sitting in the water and playing with the diving toys. He would sit and chew on them and then through them in for me or Will to go get. We had a great time and the best part was the next day they both took like 3 hour naps!
We also went to Bear Lake this last weekend and Kaydence was at it again. She is such a water bug. We had a hard time getting her out of the water to eat and drink. The water was freezing but that didn't seem to bother her at all!

The countdown is on......

I 'm so excited my little brother Miles will be coming home in 2 1/2 weeks from the New Zealand Wellington Mission. He left when Kaydence was 2 weeks old and now she just turned 2 last Friday! I can hardly believe that it has gone this fast!!! Will is very excited as well, him and Miles are quite good buddies. I can't wait for Miles to see how Kaydence has grown and meet Brennan. I've been working really hard with Kaydence so she will say his name and now everyday she asks me "Where uncle Miles?" So I have tto tell her we get to go pick him up in just a few weeks and she replies "oh ok".

We also jut had Kaydence's b-day. She got spoiled ROTTEN! She is so excited that she is finally 2. The last few days she has said "Mom, I two." and I say yep you are! I am not sure how I like having a 2 year old. It seems like just yesterday I brought her home and our whole world changed. She has brought a lot o joy and happiness to our family and she continues to brighten everyday!

Here is a picture of her when she was just a few months old. My how she has changed!

So I decided to write a little bit about my crazy daughter! As you can see from the pictures this is what living with Kaydence is like. She is so cute and fun but boy can she find herself into trouble. She lvoes getting into my makeup! As you can see from the pictures she has makeup all over her eyes. she thinks that the applicators are q-tips but for some reason she decided to stick it up her nose. She also knows exactly where to find my makeup. In the bottom far corner. She will put on all her bows and then go get my makeup. Can you tell by the look on her face that she knows what she is doing? We are also int he potty training stage that is why she is in her diaper. On quick piece of advice. She got to where she would take her diaper off while she was taking a nap and so I put it on backwards adn she can't figure it out. I was so sick of cleaning up pee on the floor!
She also loves to play with Will's hats and not just the clean ones! She will put on his hat after he comes home from work and walk around. YUCK!!! For awhile she hated the bath tub but I would try to make it fun for her and so one night i was washing her hair and I got it to stick straight up. It was so funny. So now she always asks me to stick her hair up.
Overall she is a very good girl jsut very entertaining and so busy!

Another BIG Harkness update...

Just a warning this entry is quite long and random but should bring us up to date!

March- Happy Easter! This was her dress. We went to the dance at my grandma's. she looked jut like a little princess. Work has picked up for Will, so that has been a huge blessing. I have worked really hard with my Mary Kay business and I finished first month of Car qualifications. I am so excited. I am hoping to finish it up in the month of April and i will have earned a free car with Mary Kay!
On a sad note my grandpa passed away this month. It was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. He was my only grandpa and he was an amazing man. He woud always make me feel important and like i was the favorite grandkid. He will be missed a lot. My love and prayers are with my lonely grandma.

I just love this picture. Also lately they have started to play with each other. Kaydence just loves him and always wants to hug him. Every morning when we are getting ready I lay them on the bed and change them both. Kaydence will roll over and say "good morning Bre". It is so cute.

February- Work was slow for Will but we managed. Kaydence did love it when Will would be home for lunch. (and i loved it when she wanted him to put her down for a nap!) Brennan came down with RSV. My life revovled around feeding, changing diapers, and giving him 3 to 4 treatments a day. We also gave Kaydence a treatment a few times. She HATED it. So now the joke is whenever she is introuble we ask her "Do you want a treatmnet?" of Course she usually she "No". We also are now feeding Brennan solids and he has been in Kaydence's high chair. One night after dinner i guess he was just way to tired he couldn't wait for me to put him to bed.

Harkness Update

Sorry for the delay in posts. We have no internet at the moment. Just trying to save a little money. But i thought i better write a little and update everyone.

Will- is trying to stay busy with work. They haven't officially layed him off but we are just on a day to day basis with work. He is a very hard worker and is trying so hard to provide for out family. He also just got into a little accident about a week ago but he is ok. He was running an errand and hit some black ice and ran into a ditch and tipped the truck on its side. Luckily he walked away with only a few bruises.

Me- working a little part time to help out the family finacially and working really hard with my Mary Kay business. I am working on earning my first free car. I really enjoy running my own little business and meeting new people and helping them increase their self-esteem. Plus it gives me a chance to talk to people my age for a couple hours a day. I can only talk 2 year old jibberish for so long!

Kaydence- Oh boy what do i say about kaydence. That girl has more spunk then she knows what to do with. Everyday is a new adventure with her. One night I was trying to make a good dinner for Will and Brennan was crying, the oven was beeping and then there was Kaydence dancing on the top on my kitchen table! Sometimes i don't no where she comes up with the things she does but i can't get mad at her because it is so funny. She is really into coloring latley and sometimes it doesn't always end up on the paper. She is also talking up a storm. If you ask her how old she is going to be she will say "five". So i guess i am going to have a 5 year old in a few months.

Brennan- Oh my sweet little boy who doesn't sleep at night! He is so sweet and just goes with the flow which is good because his sister wants to take him everywhere! The older he gets the more and more he looks just like Will. His eyes have stayed really dark and he is just so cute! He just turned 5 months. I can hardly believe that he is already that old.

Well i know this is getting to be a long post but i haven't written anything in a long time!

She's Here!

She's Here!
