Kennedyisms. And then some

K: My first name is princess Jasmine, my middle name is Gizelle, and my last name is Sleeping Beauty.
M: That's a beautiful name. What is my name?
K: Ashley.

"When we get a new house with a new backyard, we can build a CARNIVAL!! And all my friends can come. And yours, too. And we'll have a merry go round, a turning wheel and lots and lots of popcorn."

[As we were leaving my grandmother's house]
"I love those Barbies. Grandma just has such wonder, beautiful, amazing Barbies for all the kids to play with. And boy Barbies for the boys. Because they don't like girl Barbies."

K: I love all my cousins. And you love them too, right, dad?
D: Yes, I love them all.
K: And your daughter.
D: Yes, and my daughter.

K: Ouch.
M: What happened, babe?
K: When I pinch my bum it hurts.
M: ... I'm sorry... why did you pinch your bum?
K: [very matter-of-factly] To see if it would hurt.

... and then some...

My current emotions:

-Justin only has 2 more months of school. Then graduation. Then Hawaii.

- In case you hadn't noticed my little countdown on my page, I only have about 8 days left until I leave for Hawaii... the first time.

- I have a few friends who have lost their jobs. And it makes me sad.

- Kennedy took swimming lessons. She now will finally put her head under the water without screaming bloody murder. But only where she can reach the bottom and only if no one is touching her.

- My BFF Ashlee is engaged! Woo hoo!

- We just bought a house, today!
(And this is a picture of it. I am inviting all of you over for a beach party.)

- All of the crap in my house won't seem to pack itself. I must have misplaced my magic wand.

- I'm hoping that after this move, we won't have to move again for a freaking long time, since it appears to be a trend for us to move at least 1-2 times per year.

- Do I really need an explanation for this one?

Yes, my magic wand seems to have disappeared as well. I wish I could pack like Merlin from The Sword and the Stone. We've had a lot of packing, unpacking, and repacking over the past few weeks, but packing a house is a completely different story. I'm so excited for you guys getting a house too!!

Brandon said...

Congratulations on the new house! Great picture, by the way - maybe someday, eh? When do you guys make the move? That's so exciting you're leaving for Hawaii in only about one week!!

I love the bum pinching experiment!! I'll have to try that one with Charly! Our home will be completed in June and I am DREADING the big move! I am just praying it happens before the baby gets here! You will have the BEST time in Hawaii!! Take me with you!!

i can't wait for that fancy carnival with all the popcorn in your new house. that sounds fun.

and thanks for the well wishes. hopefully i won't be unemployed too long.

Raising Helm said...

You amaze me at your creativity!
All the magic that goes on around your house, your princess, your carnival, your fab trips to Hawaii...who needs a magic wand? Not Ashley Rae- I am so excited for you and all your new adventures to come...and I hope I get to see you next week before you hop onto a plane and fly away to paradise.

Schwartz Family said...

Yay! I am so happy for you guys buying a house!!! I can't tell you enough how freaking cute your daughter is! She is so creative!

Sharee and Court said...

Good to know that your name is still Ashley, according to Kennedy. :) Too bad you didn't get a princess name though. Maybe it would have helped you find your magic wand. PS I hate packing too!!!!!

I can't wait to come and have a beach party at your new house! We can go for a dip in the ocean. It's in Hawaii right?? PS I think you should pack me in your suitcase when you go to Hawaii. I will survive, don't worry...

Last PS my bum hurts when I pinch it too. :)

Congrats on the new house!! Could I be more jealous that your going to Hawaii? So maybe since Justin will be done with school soon we can finally get together. Or ya now we can just continue being online friends and not see you guys again until one of our daughters gets married;D

CAMI said...

Ok first of all when you find your wand please let me barrow it! second You are moving? when? Where? Hawaii? I am so confused I guess thats what I get for not blogging for like two months!
Ps when you have the carnival I want to come too!

I don't understand how i missed your post, but alas, I have. So you just may miss my comment here way down at the bottom; especially since you are so busy with your wide range of emotions... and your hard work at RUBBING IN YOUR TRIP TO HAWAII. thanks for that. Because really, being as pregnant, uncomfortable and emotionally unstable as i am i really need to hear someone is actually going to have extreme amounts of fun and relaxation under the sun.
so thanks for being there for me.
oh and also, sorry about your magic wand; i would loan you mine but i need it to wave constantly over my entire body begging it to shrink; it's yet to work, but I am confident it's all in my delivery.

ps... you should have a house warming party and invite me. it could be really entertaining. i would either really warm your house with fun or do something nasty and trash it because i am jealous. it's hard to say which melanie i will be that day.

Kevan and Jill said...

Have I told you how much I love Kennedy-isms? They make me smile! I am so jealous of you that you bought a house (also very excited for you)! Let us know when you are moving and I will send Kevan over to help.

the mom said...

I love these pics of kennedy - especially the one with her coloring. You're developing some good photography skills : )

A new house! A new house! I'm so excited for you. You're going to have so much fun making it your own - decorating, landscaping....

I'm on a quest for a BED for your 3rd bedroom so I don't have to sleep on an air mattress when I come visit. Maybe one of your blog visitors has an extra they want to dispose of :)

Kennedy is so funny! I love the things she says. Congrats on the new house btw, can we move in too? Wow, what a beauty!! ;-) And I'm so jealous you're going to Hawaii! I want to go too! Those shoes were my Valentine's present from Trav - he actually loves to buy me shoes! (And trust me, I'm not complaining!)

Also, I'm really sorry for your friends who lost their jobs. My husband is actually looking for people to help expand their office, part time and/or full time. It's commision based, but it's an awesome company. So if you want, I could set up some interviews... let me know. :-)

Smiley Family said...

Have I told you yet how jealous I am of your TWO upcoming trips to Hawaii? I'm sure I have, but I'm telling you again. I am jealous, but not resentful, you deserve this :)

Kennedy is hilarious - I guess you're just not princess material ;)

A house?! That is awesome! I am so happy for you guys - what a great time to buy!

Lauren said...

Congrats on the house! That is very exciting. I hope you don't have to move for a LONG time!

Kas said...

Where are you moving? I definitely want an invite to the beach party!!! :)
