I am happy to say I am still functioning after the weekend I had. My baby turned One. I planned her party for saturday on her birthday. Sunday was fathers day. And Monday, Our 3 year anniversary. I did it though-I made it through. Craziest weekend of my entire life-but hey it was fun!
First up-Kinzi's B-day Bash!
We had a water party and her cousins and some of her friends stopped by for fun! I really had this party planned before Kinz was born-I love Birthdays! Especially 1st Birthdays! I did a pink and blue theme and it turned out just as planned. The only thing I had to spend money on was the food! I did truffles and cupcakes. I aso bought ice cream but of course I forgot about it. The cupcakes were layered pink and blue-and were SO cute. Wish I would have taken a picture of them once you bit into them-oh well I was too busy. Want to know how to make? Ask me sometime...
Next up, Fathers Day. Did I get any pictures? Of course not. But we had a good one. Made breakfast for Phil and Kinzi got him some fun things. Then my Dad came over for Dinner and my sister and I made him and Phil Ribs and Potatoes. Were were going to make dessert but everyone was too full. But I did make my dad homemade orange sticks for fathers day. He loves those. I really didnt think they were going to turn out good but they tasted just like the ones you buy at Walmart. Just call me Betty Crocker. I know were grateful for our dads and how much they do for us.
And last up, our Anniversary. This was nice because I knew I didnt have to cook or prepare anything. All I had to do was try and look good for our Date! We went to Claim Jumper for dinner and went and saw a movie at the Dollar Theater after. You might be thinking, thats it? Just dinner and a movie? Let me just say last time we went to a movie together was before I was pregnant. Yeah believe it. They are just so expensive and we like Redbox better anyways. After the movie it was only 9:00 and we were not ready to go home especially since my sister had Kinzi and we were not worried about her. So we went goofy golfing! I usually don't like goofy golfing but it was my idea and we had a lot of fun! Glad we went. It was a perfect night. I love being married to Phil. These 3 years have been the best yet. I love having someone know me so well. I love you Philip James Weech.

These are just a preview of her 1 year old pictures we took. I know. She is cute.
Kinzi is 1 going on...9 months. 2 people at the store thought she was 9 months old. She looks nine months, and acts it. No she isnt walking, or standing alone yet. But do I love her any less? NO! I am just going to brag about it because I get to have a baby longer. One day she will so I am not worried.
Kinz LOVES to dance. Anytime she hears music she goes at it. Even if I am just flipping through channels and pass by the weather channel with music playing, she still heard the music and started dancing.
She loves to share her toys or food or anything she has in her hand.
She says Mama, Dada, Hi and sometimes she says ONE. When she is in the mood.
She is off the bottle and on milk completly. Thank Goodness.
Still sucks her fingers when she goes to sleep, and its still cute.
Can go up and down the stairs.
Pretty good eater. Depends on the day. One second she likes something and the next she hates it.
Still sleeps SO good.
She has an arm. I think we have a future softball player in our midst. The girl can chuck things.
Loves to make messes.
Understands what NO means.
And we love her so much. I honestly feel like people think she is literally the cutest baby in the world everytime I go out. People just go on about her. As I am sure happens with every single baby because babies are cute. But Ill take it. And it makes me feel good.
Not sure on her weight-her appt is on tues. Im guessing she is around 17-18 lbs. She has always been around the 10th percentile so we will see.
I am so glad we have her in our family. And WE DID IT. She survived a whole year with us as parents!!
WE LOVE YOU KINZI MAY WEECH!

Barton you will be missed by so many. I can't believe how many people have shared such special memories they have of you. You really are a special person. I know our family was so blessed to have you in our lives. We are the lucky ones. You ARE such a great brother to me and I cherish all the fun memories we had together. Thanks for being such a good uncle to Kinzi. I absolutely loved watching you play and talk to her. I can't wait till the day I get to see you again. I am going to try a little harder. Be a little better. Follow your example you set for me.
With everything you had to deal with and go through and still you served a full time mission. You even received your associates with honors and I respect you so much. None of us will ever comprehend what a challenge that was for you.
I love you.
Until We Meet Again.
Thanks everyone for the help with the funeral and memorial service. Thanks for all the sweet words shown for my brother. Thanks for helping spread the word that he was missing. Thanks for taking and watching our kids. Thanks for the love and support. Your love and prayers have helped our family so much throughout all of these hard times.
Although things have been so difficult, we are so blessed to have a knowledge of the gospel. To know the Lord has a plan and we can be an eternal family and be with Barton again. We have felt so close to our Savior and felt his love and know that Barton is finally happy and is taken care of.
(just a little p.s. when Barton left on his mission the rodeo-chedeski fire started. Now that he has left this earth the wallow fire has started. I think the White Mountains don't like him leaving.)
