Happy Birthday Kaden!

My little boy turned 2 yesterday! He is the reason they have the term "terrible twos"

He is a true boy and we love him to pieces! We are so lucky to have this boy in our family. A few reasons I love Kaden

- He loves to play with his big sister
- He loves to give hugs and kisses
- He stops crying when I sing "I am a Child of God" everytime (even though I can't carry a tune)
- He has the best dance moves around
- His facial expressions are HILARIOUS!
- He makes friends with strangers almost every day
- He takes 4 hour naps :)

We love you Kaden, Happy 2nd Birthday!

Chuck E Cheese

We found a Chuck E Cheese not too far from us. We took the kids and had a fabulous time. They absolutely loved it. They had the Chuck E Cheese band playing and Kaden thought it was awesome. They played and played until they were worn out. Family outings like this are my favorite!

We changed the look of our blog and we lost all our friends blog addresses. I remember some, but if you have my email, please send me your blog address again. You can also leave it in the comments.

IT'S A......

It's a BOY!!!! Yesterday we were able to find out what we are having! We are very excited, well most of us. When I told Kinley it is a boy she said, "I want a girl!" So I said, "this baby is a boy." Then she asked, "can you make it a girl?" Jordon comforted her a little by telling her she still gets to be Daddy's little princess.

My sister Lindsey who is due a month before me is also having a boy, so these little guys are going to be good friends!

Top Ten for September and October

I was in Arizona for a few weeks in September so I didn't ever do a top ten, so this is from the last two months.

1. Guess who went poop on the potty?? twice now actually. Yep Kaden, I am hoping he will just potty train himself. Yeah right! We are proud of him though.

2. Katie: If this baby is a boy, it is going to take a while to explain to Kinley she is having another brother.
Jordon: If this baby is a girl, it is going to take a while to explain to Kinley why her dad and Kaden live in the woods.

3. Kinley has been practicing very hard and can write her name.

4. Katie: Honey, look how big my belly is getting. (OK its not really getting big, but at least I can tell)
Kinley: Yeah mom, its getting big like Dads.

5. Of course our trip to AZ, we went to the cabin, to Snowflake, and did lots of playing with cousins! Thanks to my mom, for being such a big help.

6. I am finally getting over morning (or all day) sickness. It hits every once in a while, but I feel TONS better! Hooray, I might actually consider doing this again.

7. Kinley has a CD that has a mix of different Disney songs on it. We were listening to it in the car. A song from, I think Hercules, which Kinley has never seen, comes on and Kinley says "Is this song from High School Musical?" What... I guess my neices did watch it a few 3 or 4 times at the cabin. That movie is taking over the world!

8. We are driving in the car and the sun is in Kinleys face, so of course being Kinley she says " The sun is my friend mom, he doesn't know what he's doing, he's just playing silly in my face."
Me:" The sun is your friend?"
Kinley: : Yep, but I can't really play with him, because he doesn't have eyes or a nose or a mouth."

9. We are going to Arizona for Thanksgiving. Yipee! Last year, I attempted a Thanksgiving dinner by myself. It did turn out pretty good, but my kitchen is tiny and it's just not the same without family and football!

10. We made peace with our neighbor. He came to our door, we had a nice long talk and he is actually a pretty nice guy. We told him we will be leaving for 6 weeks over the holidays and he loved that! He and Jordon even wave at each other now. You should have seen his face when I told him I was pregnant.. priceless!

11. I put Kaden down for a nap and of course he was just sitting in there crying. All of the sudden I hear Kinley in there singing " I can show you the world, shining shimmering, splendid... " It was too cute. She came out a little frustrated. I tried to sing to him, but he is still crying.

12. Kinley : Kaden can you say puppy?
Kaden: Puppy
Kinley: can you say Davy Crockett?
Kaden: Baby crockett!

Ok so there are few more than 10, but it is for two months.
