Looks who is back!!!

Lots has happened since my last post… you know, 2 years ago!

Here is a picture of my FAVORITE thing that has happened:

Ainsley Mill Gassiot

born on Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 26, 2009)

She is sweet and calm (unless she is hungry).

Ainsley is just what our family needed.

I am so thankful.


I hope this video makes you smile like it makes me!  I just love how kids have no reservation at all in showing emotion!  Enjoy!

Out of the office

Ken went away on business recently. I sent him an “I miss you, sweety” email and I got an immediate response.

It was an “I am out of the office” automatic response message, which apparently gives him a free pass to not respond to anything work related while he is gone.

I have decided that I would like to make a t-shirt or a sign that has an automatic response on it. I would like for it to say something like this:

“Thank you for making your request (and thank you for not using whiney words). Momma is out of the office right now. She will get back to you as soon as she returns. Please walk away. This is an automated response so repeating your request louder will not help.”

I think I could sell them and make lots.

Sydney is so funny

Tonight, while playing with bubbles in the shower, Sydney said something so funny. She didn’t think it was funny, but I did. I believe you will, too.

“Momma, look! I’m making shampoo!” (as she makes a ball of bubbles)

“Wow! That’s fun, sister!”

She replies, “Yep. Its made with cow poop.”

My sweet baby. Can you tell she has been in West Texas for most of her life?

So sweet

I walked outside the other day and look what the kids were doing.  It made my heart feel good.  Enjoy!

So, I am feeling confident this morning and have decided to make an attempt at blogging on the new Mac.  We’ll see how it goes.  The following events have happened since my last post…I mean the one before the aliens took me.  Enjoy!




2009 has kept us busy! Ken started classes towards a PhD.  He’s having fun with them so far.  We are all adjusting to the new schedule that 9 hrs of class this semester brings, but it has been a bit easier than anticipated.  We are still loving working with the college ministry at church.  We are sure someone will figure out that we are for too inferior for the job, but until then we’ll keep loving on the students!  They bless us in so many ways!

OK, I  want to over do it and cause folks to have too high an expectation for this blog, so I had better stop! 🙂

Thanks for checking back with me!

Aliens & our new Mac.

Hi.  My name is Kim.  I used to blog here.

 I was abducted by aliens. 

They gave me a new computer for my troubles though.  Its a MAC, so at least they were hip aliens.

Bigger and better posts to come?  Don’t hold your breath…

Hopefully more will be in the future though (it might be wise to not hold your breath on this one, but I promise I will try to be better. Wow.  November was my last post.  Wow.).
