Kenadie

aka: Kena, Kenne, Kena Pooh, Princess Cutie Bootie (she's gonna be mad about that one later in life), and the list goes on and on.  Little Miss Kenadie was the youngest kiddo, out of 7 siblings and cousins, living on the farm for 4 weeks.  She sure made things sweeter around here.  I will never tire of her little voice.  She 'held her own' and ran with the big kids, taking VERY few naps... much to the exhaustion of her mom ;)  She... ate lots of oatmeal and cereal, played in the mud, road 4wheelers, conquered the huge hammock, played Wii and ipads, was a puzzle maniac (I hear this gene comes from her Nuna), ate her dinner with bribes to get milkshakes for dessert, slip 'n slided, waterballoon battled, played with chicks, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, and MUCH more.
 But what I could not wait for each day from Miss Kena... was the first glimpse of her bed head.
 Oh dear, this little diva could rock her sleepy 'do.  Not many people could still be termed cute with this swirling on top of their noggin', but she could.
 And the true phenomenon to this whole hair thing is... while the rest of us wake up and 'tame' our tresses for the day, then step out into the humidity for 2.2 seconds only to see it frizz out to disastrous proportions... NOT Kena!  She wakes with bed head fro and steps outside into the humidity and her hair curls up into the sweetest, softest, little ringlets.  Case in point...
 It needs to be stated that their was some serious cousin loves exchanged between these two.  I don't know who was smitten more, but Christian and Kenadie sure loved to hang out! 
 And this mom sure loves her teenage son and that he slowed down long enough to give this sweet cousin of his all the time in the world.  Afterall, it couldn't have been ALL fun and games for her not being in her own bed, having her own toys, being able to run freely in her own backyard... but Christian sure helped ease the upheaval of all that is normal to her.  Hero!
Miss seeing her DAILY.  Those giggles, her polka dot PJs, her chocolatey smile, her painted masterpieces... HER!
