Good Monday Morning. We had quite a busy, busy weekend. On Saturday, Natalie and I went with Natalie's Grandma Dempsey to the Rock Falls armory to record a video greeting for Mandy and Kyle. The armory put it together. Natalie was cute and babbled during our recording. We then went out for lunch at the Candlelight in Rock Falls. Natalie ate bread and then smiled and stared at the other patrons in the restaurant. She's so nosey, she needs to checks everyone out and make sure that they know that she is there.

Then on Saturday night, Natalie, Jason, and I went to Grandma and Grandpa K's house. They had a full house. Cousins Alec, Allyse, and Owen were spending the night. Along with Grandma Sue's sister Joanne, her husband Joe, and 2 of their 4 daughters (Jacinta and Alayna). It was nice to see them, as it's been 4 years since we got together. Joann is Jasonss Godmother and it was nice to chat with them and spend some time watching old movies of Jason when he was little!

Yesterday, Aunt Amy, Cousin Ava (8.5 months old), and Uncle Brian Bickner came over to spend time with Natalie. Brian's swim team had a swim meet in Byron, so Amy and Ava spent time at our house.

Ava is so cute! She LOVES Dalten (our German Shepherd)!
