try this....

This is the BEST apple juice. Jordon doesn't even like apple juice and he keeps drinking it. It is kind of like a treat, plus I think it would make excellent apple cider. This is so good, I won't share with the kids:)

Happy Birthday Snugglebum!

Can you believe today is Kadens 3rd birthday! My how the time has flown by. Was San Fran really that long ago? Paying $5 to park everytime I had to go to the doctor, walking miles up and down hill to the doctors office when the parking garage was full, pulling over to throw up after taking Jordon to school in the morning, walking the mall and eating pineapple so I could go into labor while my mom and sister were visiting, throwing up during labor and delivery!
Kaden was the fussiest baby! On numerous occasions we weren't sure what we had gotten ourselves into! Then he got exzema and then we found out he was allergic to eggs and peanuts, then he got asthma. What a joy! He is getting so big and so old. He is not baby Kaden anymore!
He loves all things boy..spiderman, batman, baseball, football, pirates, cowboys, guns, swords and nothing girl. (excpet barbie movies, but he says its because he likes the bad guys) :)

Kaden is full of personality. He loves chicken nuggets, candy and cereal. Thats about it. He is the pickiest eater I have ever known. He loves to copy his sister.. you should see him sing "get your head the game" from HSM! He is a fantastic dancer, with the best air guitar! He likes dads....even if he has never met you and you look like you could be a dad, prepare to get punched, because he will come right up and hit ya! He HATES the bath, and I mean hates it!
Never a dull moment with Kaden around!

Happy Birthday Snuggle bum...we sure love you!

Top ten for October

10. Halloween... princesses, fifties girl, buzz lightyear, robin, cowboy, pirate and a lion. So many things to be, not enough Halloween parties. :)

9. Kinley " Mom, can you hook up the Wii?"
Mom "I don't know how."
Kinley "It's easy mom, you just need to find the hooker."

8. Konnor got two teeth.

7. Jordon and I went to Laughlin with Chade and Melese and had a great time.

6. Kaden "I don't like hot dogs."
Kinley " Kaden doesn't like anything, not even broccoli."
Jordon" I like broccoli. It's one of my favorite vegetables."
Kinley " Chicken, chocolate milk and broccoli are my favorite vegetables."

5. Kaden "Mom, this toy is not working."
Mom "I'm sorry, that stinks."
Kaden "That was me."(Only a boy would want to be the one who made a stink, even when he didn't.)

4. Mom "Kinley, will you pick up that toy."
Kinley " I am too tired. No wait, I am too busy."

3. "What kind of birthday cake do you want?"
Kaden "Spiderman, batman and robin.. NOT mickey mouse."

2. The bradshaw family weekend, the lake, the party, the service project, and family pictures.

1. Kaden woke up at 5 am crying and when Jordon went to find out what was wrong, Kaden said "I want to go to Dr. Bowmans house and eat donuts." (Dr. Bowmans house is Jordons office and they always have donuts.)

Bradshaw Family Weekend

This post is going to be starting at the end of the weekend, because the pictures downloaded backwards.

We had family pictures.. Catherine Taylor did a great job with such a big group.

While Catherine was taking individual family pictures, we took some of our own.

We had a birthday party for these two. They both turned 60! We had a good party with all of our family and their siblings. We had a movie playing outside for the little kids and a movie we made for Mom and Dad going inside.

This is how Lucy fell asleep on the way home from the lake. We were all worn out and still had to get ready for the family pictures.

Kinley and Kambree at the lake.

Jordon and Kaden on the "seahorse" which is what Kaden called it. I wish I would have taken more pictures. Kinley went on the big tube, and Jordon got up on the wakeboard.

We went to the park, and except for the bees, we had a great time.

Sarah and I took the kids to the museum while others went to the fair. Zach and Jordon were not there yet, and we did not want to attempt the fair without them.

Sarah stayed the night at our house one her way down from Utah. For FHE we painted Halloween masks and had Halloween cookies.

Fall Break!

During Jordon's week off we tried to go somewhere new with the kids every day. We went to the pumkin patch in Chino Valley. I have to admit I was a little disappointed. We just picked out some pumkins and left. It was really windy and Kaden did not like it.

This is Lynx Lake (I think). It was really beautiful. We ate lunch, walked around the lake, and the kids played on the playground. The weather was perfect!

We also went to Fain Park. We didn't really know what to expect and we should have worn hiking shoes, but it was fun and we will go back prepared next time.


We carved pumpkins on Halloween and Kaden wanted the pirate crossbones. The pictures didn't turn out very well. Kinleys was a cat and looked really cool.

The Monday before for FHE we carved faces. Kinley wanted a silly face and Kaden wanted a mean face. Go figure!

On Halloween we went to "Trick or Treat Street." It is an old street in downtown Prescott with nice old homes that go all out. The police close off the street and everything. We got there at 4 to beat the crowds and it was a good thing we did, by 5 there was a long line of trick-or-treaters at every door. P.S. After explaining to Kaden about 50 times that he was a lion and not a tiger he got called a Tiger and Tigger.... ummm he is a LION! These people are confusing my poor boy!

Kinley was a beautiful princess for her preschool party!

We went to a party at a friend's house and the kids dresseed up. They looked cute! To Infinity and Beyond!
