Here is Meg and Katelin cooking Chocolate Meringue pie. Can you say mmmmmm....
Mema and Pa love their great-grand kids. I think there are about 11-12 of them now, but quickly expanding.
Bumps (from right to left) on the log: Hannah (my cousin Julie and Dell's daughter), Keslyn (my niece), Ryan(Julie and Dell's son...they are expecting another boy the same time Meg and I are), Kayden (my cousin Jason's son), Cami and Chelsie (my cousin Chris and Charla's daughters), and of course KK (that's what they all her at daycare, so now she and everyone else calls her that).
As you can see Katelin was having a rough time, but soon got over it when the presents were ready to open. Katlin got another, but different "Little People" house. I guess Katelin was nice this year too!!
Baby boy Flemmons also got away with some presents. My family is trying to influence him already with the Tech garb!!

The Whites were so nice to let us barge in and let Katelin run off some energy. The boys played so well with Katelin (including Chad, sacrificing his Sunday afternoon to pull the kids around the yard). I think she will fit in just well with a brother running around here pretty soon.
Katelin got some great LOUD musical toys (thanks a lot mom, dad, Kari and Brian!!!)
She got a keyboard that has a volume button, but I don't think the manufacturer knows the meaning of quiet.
...A drum set complete with tambourine, maracas, and bells.
...and the favorite of all is the female doctor doll that sings four really cute songs (not being sarcastic here, they really are cute).
The beeper song:
"My beeper beep beeps when someone needs me quick.
I always have to hurry 'cause they might be sick.
I want to help the people who go beep, beep, beep,
but sometimes they call me when I'm down to sleep."
The Stethoscope song:
"A heartbeat is sometimes hard to hear,
but my stethoscope makes it loud and clear.
You heart is saying bump bump, bump bump.
It's got great rhythm and it sounds like a drum."
The Shot song:
"You can look away while I give you a shot.
Don't worry about the ouchie, it won't sting a lot.
This will hurt me more than it will hurt you.
It's the hardest thing that a doctor has to do."
The Thermometer song: (my favorite)
"A thermometer's a handy dandy tool.
It tells me if you're warm or cool.
If your temperature's high, you'll feel hot.
I'll see if you have a fever or not."
Obviously the first thing she saw when coming into the living room was the doll stuff. She LOVED the doll stroller. Poor doll. I think K strolled her through the hall, dining room and living room about 157 times, accidentally dumping her doll out of the stroller 22 of those times.
I think Katelin is going to make a great Big Sis, as long as baby bro doesn't mind a little adventure.
After strolling the doll around she finally realized that there was a crib for "night-night." We had a hard time getting her away for the rest of the presents, but she quickly go the hang of it.
Katelin loved the tree this year. She could not wait to turn the tree on when getting home. The cutest thing... she would pull her beach lounge chair (that her Aunt Randi-Ann gave her for her birthday) into the living room when we got home from work, sit down right in front of the tree and just stare. She would say "pitty pitty" (pretty, pretty), move the chair a little closer and do the same thing.
