The Kerr Family

The Kerr Family

We are the Kerr's

Hi, we are the Kerr Family. Our story began when I met Sam in College. By no means was it love at first sight, but through the years we realized we could not live without each other. So, May 15, 2004, we tied the knot. In our first years of marriage, we were both in graduate school, which meant we were short on money and free time. Somehow, we still managed to have the time of our lives! About the time we were getting ready to graduate and planning how we would spend our newfound time and money, we got a little surprise. While we thought that being pregnant at that time was less than ideal, it turned out to be the most amazing thing that could ever happen to us! Ayden Kennedy Kerr was born August 18, 2006. This time, it certainly was love at first sight! He changed our lives in a way I never knew possible. Sam and I really didn't have a clue as to what we were doing but somehow we all survived! A year later, Sam made a forced career change (more on that another day) that put our marriage to the test. It was probably the tallest hurdle we have jumped to date. The important thing is, we did make it over and kept on running! In 2008, we moved from our tiny little house into our dream house (at least it was at the time). Another year flew by and then there were four. Beckham Samuel Kerr was born August 26, 2009. Once again, it was love at first sight. Almost Two years have passed since then and I am so excited to fill you in on all the details as they come to me! Stay tuned.

October in Review

Wow! What a crazy month.  It began with a quick trip to Colorado Springs.  Sam and I went to our dear  friend, Lee's wedding.  The weather was amazing and it was so great to spend time with good friends that we don't get the opportunity to see nearly enough.  The wedding festivities took place at a lodge called Garden of the Gods Club.  Just to give you an idea of our hideous view, this is what we saw every morning when we looked out the window.

When we came home, Sam and I immediately noticed something strange about Ayden's voice.  It sound strained and almost as if he was chocking on something.  It first, I thought it might be drainage.  However, when it didn't seem to clear up, I took a look at his throat.  I was completely shocked to find that his tonsils literally took up his entire throat.  After taking him to our pediatrician as well as a ENT, we decided he would need to have them removed.

While we were preparing and anticipating for the Ice Cream Fest, we made our annual journey south for Sam's favorite holiday of the year.... The Red River Rival!!  We change things up a little this year though.  Since we had left the kiddos behind only the week before, we decided to make it a family trip this year.  We stayed with our wonderful friends Paige and Ryan Hayes.  The boys were pumped because the Ryder and Paisley, Paige and Ryan's kids are some of their very best friends!

After our 55-17 stomping of the Longhorns, it was time to head home and get Ayden's tonsils taken care of.  It really was not the piece of cake surgery I thought it would be.  He had some complications and ended up back in surgery several days later and got the pleasure of spending the night in the hospital.  After about two weeks, he was back to his old self.  And just in time for Halloween!!

Ayden had been planning his Captain Rex costume for months.  Poor Beckham the hand me down kid got a choice of a Turtle or a Lion.  He wanted to be Nemo, but I didn't have one of those in the attic!  Don't feel too sorry for the little terrapin though, he totally rocked it.  He looked like a professional trick or treater.  He had down the "trick or treat" "thank you" "bye" "hap hap hap Happy Halloween"  The Sullivant's came over to trick or treat with us.  We are so excited because they are finally moving home from Kansas City.  We will be able to spend so much more time with them now!!
