Carter and Kayla

I was so happy when my friend Kayla came to visit! She is not only one of my super best friends, she is also the love of Carter's life (thus far!) **When asked, "Carter, who loves you?" Carter says, "Kayla" first.
When Kayla first came to the door, Carter greeted her shyly. Once he realized that there were other people who wanted to talk to her, he grabbed her hand and took her on a tour of his most favorite toys- his Lego trains, his Lionel train, and his bowling set. He asked her right away if she would play bowling with him! His second question to her? "Honey, can I sleep with you?" I promptly answered for Kayla, "No, Carter." Carter replied, "Awwwww, why?" Thinking fast my answer was, "You aren't married yet." LOL! Carter accepted this answer, but insisted on sleeping on the floor next to Kayla. LOL!

**These are pictures from my camera

The moment that Kayla came to the door Carter was excited! He hugged her so hard that she nearly fell over- which is why she is holding the wall in this picture, lol!

Kayla is going to show me how to knit!


Harrison took the camera and snapped this picture, too cute!

Kayla's Farewell Breakfast... trying not to cry =(

Carter and the love of his life (thus far).

Carter was totally depressed for days after Kayla left. Here is Carter 30 mins after we said goodbye to Kayla.

Carter and I sent a voice message to Kayla, here is the script:
Me: "Carter? Are you happy or sad?"
Carter: "Sad"
Me: "Why are you sad?"
Carter: "Because Kayla's not kissing me."
Me: "Ohhh, I'm sorry."
Carter: "Yeah..."
He sounded SOOOO depressed. The above pic is all him- can you tell he misses her?!

Kayla- with a better camera!

Having Kayla here was such a joy. I really loved it. She taught me how to knit. We watched "bonnet movies" made by the BBC. We snacked, laughed, and cried! She was the PERFECT cure for Winter Blahs- and I am so thankful for her friendship! I miss her already- and I am not the only one!

**Taken with Kayla's camera

I love Carter's face in this picture.

They pretend to be scared, lol!



The boys play air hockey!

Action shot of Mr. Harrison- you can tell he is really into the game!

Carter gives Kayla his best smile.

This was Carter's favorite ride- and his face says it all!

This was Harrison's favorite ride, "woahhhhhh!"

Sean was home sick from school, so he asked to play with Kayla's camera. He took this picture of himself, and it happened to get Kurt cleaning in the background, lol!

Carter was SO ANGRY when he saw this picture. "HEY! SEAN!!!! NO! Don't touch! That's not yours!!!" Of course, "that" was Kayla! LOL!

Sean took this awesome shot =)- Kayla!

Sean took this too- what a neat picture!!!!

Kayla, sipping coffee and letting Sean take pics of her, lol- yup, this picture was by Sean too!

Carter wanted to go bowling with Kayla... alone. He settled for Mom as a chaperon. It was the best day of his life - Kayla, bowling, and dinner at a restaurant that had pizza on the kids' menu... life doesn't get better than that!

Kayla bowls! She beat Carter in both games =)

Carter kept sneaking glances at Kayla, lol!!!

Carter, Kayla, and bowling!

High Five!

I wanted to take a picture with Carter, but he kept closing his eyes!

When Carter goes bowling he always puts his feet on the line after he throws the ball- here are his feet with Kayla's =)

Neat picture- taken by Kayla

Carter and Kayla at dinner... awwwwwww!

Carter draws pictures with Kayla! He would draw some, and she would draw some- it was so cute! Here he had drawn a picture of bowling, and was explaining that it was going to be a spare.
