A very special thank ewe to Auntie A, U.B., and Cousin Tate for letting McKenzie be a part of the flock! McKenzie had such a great time with you guys this week. She is definitely tired after playing with Tater! Auntie Amber always has fun things going on too...like play group, mowing lawn, sidewalk chalk, swimming, Nana coming, and even going for ice cream! McKenzie was very sad to leave Tate today. When he had to go up for his nap I explained to her that we would be leaving before he woke up. So she leaned over and kissed him right on the lips. Thank you also for lunch today! When we got there from the airport Amber and Brian had made us lunch. So sweet! I wish that we lived closer to them so Tate and McKenzie could play more often.
When we got home today she walked through our house and cried on and off looking all around as if to say, you mean Tate is not here? It was so sad. However, McKenzie was happy to see us...which made us feel good! She kept saying MaMa and would not let me put her down. She was so sweet tonight when I put her to bed. She had finished her milk and was enjoying her pacifier as I was singing to her. All of a sudden she pulled out her pacifier and kissed me right on the lips and then put her pacifier right back into her mouth. It was so sweet.
Jason and I had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia. We had time to tour around and see lots of the "visitor" hot spots. I also got to spend all day Saturday with Cookie! Her parents were in town also and her sister so I got to see them as well. There is never enough time for Cookie and I to exchange all of our stories but we did a pretty good job! There was never a quiet moment!
Saturday night was the Waddell and Reed awards ceremony. Jason and I had to sit at a reserved table up front because he had hit certain levels this year to do so. It is very interesting to sit at a table of "big wigs." It was totally out of our comfort zone but very fun to say the least! I am so very proud of Jason! He got 4 awards last night. He was the only one from his office to get 4! Also, I must say that one of his awards last night was for bringing in the most new clients. Jason brought on 223 new clients last year and that is more than any one else. I am just so proud of him and how hard he works for our family. It is truly a blessing to be able to stay at home with McKenzie every day and watch her grow!
