2-Day Snow

On 12 Feb 2014, Catawba County, NC, has a rare two-day snow storm - Kayli had the opportunity to enjoy the fantasy world that all children experience when they see snow.
Kayli enjoys her first snow in the comfort of her warm kitchen floor
Kayli: "It doesn't get much better than this!"
Daddy & Momma help Kayli build a snow rabbit
Kayli: "This is great!  You can eat the snow and eat the candy eyes, too!"
By the second day of snow, the family was outside for some fun
Kayli: "This is fun!  I THINK!!!!"
Kayli makes her first snow angel
Time With Poppi & Nonni

Hunsucker/Catawba Park, Catawba, NC - 16 Jun 2014
Poppi & Nonni took Kayli to the Park in Catawba
She wasn't too sure about the playset at first
At 2.5 months before her second birthday, Kayli did really well climbing this ladder
A little safety help from Poppi for this last BIG step
To See the Video of Kayli Climbing the Big Ladder - CLICK HERE - or Below
The slides were Kayli's favorite part of the large playset
To See Kayli Going Down the Small Slide - CLICK HERE - or Below

She wasn't sure about the taller slide at first, but she eventually agreed to give it a try
There she goes

Kayli: "Oh!  This is gonna be FUN!"
Kayli: "First - a little taste.
When you can't do it all with your finger, try your foot."
It's My BIRTHDAY !!!
Philip and Leslie planned a Tinkerbelle-themed birthday party for Kayli for her second birthday.  As you can see from the photo below, Philip and Leslie are quite creative.  Watermelon was part of the food that was served at the party, but even the rind was used.
A house for Tinkerbelle and her friends
There was even a Tinkerbelle birthday cake
Kayli has her first taste of her special birthday cake - and even ate a flower
All the decorations had a Tinkerbelle theme
All of Kayli's grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins were at the party
- even Great Granny Willie
Uncle Jason, Nonni Carolyn, Cousin Alexandria, Grandmother Myra and Granddaddy Mike

After the food, Kayli was ready to open up all of her presents
Mom Leslie helped Kayli with presents while everyone else was taking photos and videos
Tissue paper goes flying as Kayli rushes to see what surprises are in the next gift bag
Kayli enjoyed the cards, too - although she did read a few of them upside down

Kayli loved her picnic table and umbrella that came from Granddaddy Mike and
Grandmother Myra and it went perfectly with her playhouse
But, her favorite gift of all was the pedal-car
from Uncle Jason, Aunt Jennifer & Cousin Nathan
Cousin Nathan offers Kayli a few tips about driving her pedal-car

A Trip to the Beach
Philip, Leslie and Kayli packed up the car and headed to Myrtle Beach, SC,
for the week of 12 Sep 2014 to 12 Sep 2014.  Favorite place for lodging: Xanadu.
07 September 2014
Not only Philip & Leslie, but also the rest of his family always choose to stay at Xanadu when
they are at the beach - Xanadu is right on the beach and every room has a balcony

10 September 2014
Kayli: "Can we go now? Can we go now? Can we go now? Can we go now?"
Kayli: "What? Smile for a photo first?  OK!  How's this?"
Kayli: "Can I help, Daddy?" 
Kayli: "Daddy says he has a surprise for me but I really don't know about this!"
Kayli: "Let me see if I've got this straight.  You want me to climb into that hole? I don't know ..."
"... and you want me to smile for a photo, too?  OK, here goes!"
Kayli: "If this is my surprise, I'm not impressed!"
Kayli: "Now that's much better!  Look, I'm Ariel the Little Mermaid!"
After all that hard work, Kayli and Daddy relax on the beach
Kayli: "It's too hot up here.  I'm headed down to the water where Mommy is."
Kayli: "Much better!"
All cleaned up and ready for some family photos
11 September 2014
Kayli: "Can we do that, too, Daddy?"
Daddy: "Maybe, When you get a little bit older"
Kayli: "OK!"
Kayli: "Let's get in the water.  You, too, Mommy."
Kayli: "Oh, lookie - a really pretty shell"
Kayli: "Trust me, Daddy.  You're gonna love this.  It's just like suntan lotion!"
(Left) Kayli: "It's getting a little HOT out here"
(Right) Kayli: "MUCH better!"
Everyone cleans up and heads out for some dinner and Putt-Putt
Kayli: "Go in - Go in - Go in!"
Kayli: "Well, maybe I can help it just a little bit!"
Kayli: "I think I've got this one!"
The evening ends with some ice cream - the perfect way to end a day at the beach
12 September 2014
Kayli: "They brought all my good stuff out today.  This is gonna be GREAT!"
Kayli: "Let me see - I need this - and a little sand and some water."
Daddy: "I can help you, Kayli"
Kayli: "Great.  I'll have to show you how it's done so you can do it right"
Daddy: "Thank you, Kayli"
Kayli: "Mommy knows how to do it better!"
Kayli gets a morning siesta out on the beach
Kayli: "I think I'm a little sad.  It's our last day at the beach until next year."
Time to go back home

Cookies for Santa
Elf - On - A - Shelf
Philip and Leslie used Elf-on-a-Shelf after Thanksgiving and until Christmas as a
daily reward system for when Kayli's behavior was good.  They named the female elf Sugarplum.
There was a message for Kayli on 28 November that said,
"Hi! My name is Sugarplum.  Santa sent me to keep watch and make sure you are being a good girl.  Each night I will travel back to the North Pole to tell Santa about your day, so make sure to look for me each morning.  I brought you a special book to read.  I hope you like it.  Santa says hello and to remember to be a good girl.  Love, Sugarplum"
On the first day, Sugarplum arrived from the North Pole in a hot-air-baloon
Each morning Kayli would look for Sugarplum
One morning there were bows and lights around the bathroom mirror
where Sugarplum had decorated the bathroom ...
... and another day she put stickers all over Tinkerbelle
On 02 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a message with building blocks
On 06 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a message on the white board.
It said, "Hey Kayli, You were such a good girl yesterday,
I made you a special necklace. Love, Sugarplum"
The necklace was made out of Fruit Loops so Kayli could even eat the necklace
On 07 December, Sugarplum left Kayli a special Christmas Card
on the mantle over the fireplace
On 13 December, Sugarplum left a message that said, "Happy Birthday Kayli's Mom"
and there were cookies for Kayli, Leslie and Philip
On 14 December there was a Christmas cookie and Christmas milk
On 15 December there was a new Christmas stocking for Kayli
and on 17 December there was a new photo of Kayli with her cousin Nathan
On 18 December Kayli saw where Sugarplum had taken a bath
On 20 December, Sugarplum left a funny picture of Daddy/Philip
with a red nose like Rudolph - Sugarplum and Kayli thought that was funny
Christmas Day at Poppi & Nonni Loftin's House
Kayli insisted on eating lunch beside Cousin Alexandria
After lunch, Kayli started unwrapping her Christmas presents
There were lots of pretty dresses from Poppi and Nonni
Lots more to open
From Uncle Brad, Aunt Beth, Savanna and Ali there was a
Disney "Frozen" Treasure Chest full of all sorts of goodies
Aunt Beth and Cousin Savanna offer a little help
Philip, Leslie and Kayli gave Poppi & Nonni a book with photos
of Kayli from her "second" year
Philip, Leslie and Kayli gave Savanna and Ali each a BIG box for Christmas
Each box was full of balloons
Some of the balloons had money in them
but you had to pop the balloons to get to the money
Before the day was over, Kayli had fallen asleep on Poppi & Nonni's couch
with dreams of Sugarplum Fairies and Christmas 2015
