Dear Kansas City,

Dear Kansas City,
I hear that you are desperately missing us. That you can't sleep at night and that mobs and mobs of people are chanting our name.

I've heard rumors of a Hunger strike until we return. I've also been told that counselors are on 24 hour Standby to listen to you cry about your longing for our family.

Well, Kansas City... we miss you too.

Kelly Misses: Edge Gymnastics, English Landing, Sophie, The Down Park, The up Park, sleepovers with the Burnesons, Sis. Fitzsimmons, Red Lobster

Paige Misses: Capri, Eli, Ms. Mary, Capri, Sophie, Belen, The Down Park, Briann, Sis. Berrey and Dave, Kendra, Did I mention Capri?

Tommy Misses: EVERYTHING, Garrison, neighborhood friends, riding bikes everyday, all the parks, Dave, Dallin, play dates, Briann and Emma, Rome, Josh and Josh's house.

Preston: hmmm... I got nuthin.

I was on the computer tonight and I found some pictures of our last days there. So I thought I'd share.

Us and our Berrey's. We love these guys! They are the kind of friends anyone would love. They help you at a moments notice, they stay up late to just hang out, they are fun to be around and they live 2 doors down (which made our late nights easy).

Tommy's Too Cool impression.

Our last Sunday at Church.

On the street where I live...d see my beautiful friends. If you are wondering how they are all so beautiful and skinny, it's because they don't eat. Trust me, I've watched them for years, and they never eat. Which leaves me more food to consume at our get-togethers, (and yes I do consume) so hopefully I can find some ugly people to be friends with in STL.

This is Adam and Dave doing their Zombie impressions. Please don't ask me, I really don't understand them.

And I guess if you were lucky enough to read through this whole entry, I should let you know that we are having another baby. This one's nickname is Grand Finale.

Oh you little trickster. I LOVE that I'm the first to comment, a place of honor.

Congrats on the babe, the babe with the power. The power of voodoo. Who do? You do! The power of the babe.

Oooohhh and I like the name. Very regal and all.

Capri talks of Paige often, it's hard to be continually left behind. She wishes she could come to her American Girl b-day party. Can you say KC visit??

luvs, aby

I did that to my parents with a 2000 word essay with pictures about the cars we owned.

Y'all should come back for an encore. 4th of July sound good?!?

WHAT!?! You didn't call me personally? Does my mom know? Does Adam know? You forgot important details. Wait...and you just called me a couple days ago!! Don't forget I'm going to be there in a few days....

Aim said...

I'm going to come out and meet Grand Finale. My last few weeks were miserable in KC...I couldn't go to sleep bc too many people were chanting your name.

Lauren F. said...

Congrats!!! (for the baby, not for missing KC!)

Aaron and Melissa said...

Congrats on the new baby! It will be nice to be so close to family with this one :)

Sorry you are missing KC. And I hope (per your request) that you find some ugly friends in STL... or maybe some more skinny pretty friends even :)

Gram said...

Yes, I know. Adam called and told me in his "Adam" style - we were talking about Jen being sick with a virus and Adam casually says "....and because she's pregnant she can't take any medicine...." Finally, at the end of our conversation, I asked if that is why he called me and he said yes. I could have missed it, if I hadn't been listening closely! Congrats - hope you aren't too sick with this one. Love the name, too!

Gram said...

Just had another thought - Since "Grand Finale" means more than "Finale", could that mean you are having more than one?!

The Wehrmeister's said...

NO not more than one thank you very much!

We just do everything Grand.

Rappleye said...

Congrats...when are you due?

Kara said...

I hear congrats are in order! Call if you need help with the kiddos.

Lisa said...

Congrats, Jen!

Amy R said...

Jen, will you come visit me? I can't come visit you b/c of the car situation, but you should come here!! 40-45 minutes. Small price to pay to see me:0)

Lyndsay said...

Congratulations!!!! We are so excited for you. You have the cutest kids, so I can't wait to see what this one looks like. =)

Shortcake and Company said...

Who wouldn't read through your funny posts? Psshhh...
Congratulations!! I love the name grand finale as it was once my favorite hairspray. Back in the day of big hair...ooh, maybe it's a sign of big hair days ahead. ;)
That is exciting. I hope all goes well throughout your pregnancy.

Robyn said...

Jen! COme back to Kansas City please. Chase and I laugh out loud when we read your blog, I wish I could laugh out loud at you in person, so come back.

Also, when will the Grand Finale make an entrance . . . or should I say exit?

Congratulations!
