50 Things to Know About Kelly....



In June, Kelly and I celebrated our 7Th anniversary. I realized that I didn't post anything about our 7 years of marriage! Months ago I wrote a post called "50 Things to Know About Me."

Ha ha ha ha, WoW there was a lot I didn't know about Kelly, and I lived with his family for a while...2 different times....(crazy) Though there was several things that I can remember that you mentioned. Kelly has always done the HUGE bowl for cereal thing. I remember it driving me crazy...not the bowl, but the fact that he and every one of his brothers and sisters ate cereal anytime...not just breakfast! (smile) I still have issues with my kids and hisband doing that...I don't know why, so I try to relax about it. (smile)

Oh I miss Sheppy! She was a good dog!
I'm glad you emailed me to let me know about the glitch in the blogger. From time to time I check anyway, but I didn't know. Also I figured out (I think) why some people can comment and others can't. If you have your blog set up for (GMAIL users only) to comment, that would be why you can't comment, so we need to get the word out for everyone to check that and to allow everyone to comment. (smile) I know Grandma hand has AOL and she is always complaining that she can't comment. I searched my blog and found it was on gmail users only for commenting...so that was how I fugured it out.

Love ya
GREAT POST! Happy 12 years!!! I'm happy to say I knew you then to!

What a cute way to honor your 7 yrs. Congratulations!!

What a fun thing to do! Kelly has always been really easy going and fun to be around. I guess he never told you how he was caught in a chain dog leash and had to bite the dog to get loose. Then when he came home with a big mark around his neck, his mom had to ask him what had happened. It was over and he wasn't going to make a big deal about it. He was a tough little guy!

We all miss Sheppy...crazy dog!

Hi kids!!. I'm so glad we're connected!! Kelly was always quiet even as an Infant he was tough he never cried over any immunization. He used to climb our Christmas tree at 1 yr old and pulled it over on the floor. I finally layed it against the wall and couldnt wait to get it out of the house. Kelly pulled a long heavy table over on top of him and had to have stitches at the corner of his eye(at one year old)At one of his parent teacher conferences I said to the teacher I know Kelly is very quiet and she said KELLY? He isnt quiet at all he is talking all the time. Soo I quess he was just quiet at home. One teacher called me at home to say Kelly threw an eraser at her while she was walking away. I said to the teacher KELLY? That doent sound like Kel. What happened? I said I wouldnt support his behavior and he would appoligize. I explained to Kelly when he got home that it was never ok to do things like that however she may have provoked him. Kelly is very slow to make upset and I believed him that he was provoked but, his behavior still needed to be addressed. She was his teacher and it was disrespectful. I told him if he did nt appologize to her I would come to school and stand in front of the class with him. He appologized. When Kelly was 5 yrs old the neghbor boy was a little older and wild. They burned an old barn across the street and the fire department was called and they said they were going to scare the tar out of them. He was crying but, all turned out ok. I woke up one night to hear crying coming from their room. I went in to see who and it was Kelly. I said whats the matter Kel? He said (I smoked) I said ooh thats ok just dont do it again. He said a little wobbeley o.k. I went back to bed and explained to Bill and pretty soon Kel came back in and was very worried. He said I'm afraid my lungs are black. We hugged him and loved him, I could cry with how cute that was. I said your ok Kel just dont do it again. He went back to bed the guilt gone from his shoulders. Love ya Son!!! mom
