Video on the night before meeting Chantzlyn:
And I die over this video EVERY.TIME. Kennedie wanted to do a video all by herself. Lantz obliged. We had no idea what she was going to say, but we walked away from this Hallmark moment with tears in our eyes and joy in our hearts. This will forever be one of my favorite videos:

Got everyone strapped in & ready! What?! Four girls and four carseats! If you think our van is full you should see our hearts!
