So life has been really crazy for the past 7 months and I am sorry that I slacked in the blogging area. I am going to try to keep up with my blog now and I will try to post pictures in the next few days.

So today after 3 days of snowing I decided it was time to get Caden out in the snow to play for the first time. He seemed to really enjoy himself, but it was just to cold to stay out very long. He was only outside for about 10 min. He had gloves on and everything, but his hand still got cold and I had to rub then in mine to warm them up and I was also blowing warm air on them, so he did the same thing. It was really cute. I also took some pictures of the snow and now just 15 min after those pictures it is snowing again and it is really coming down. The car was clean and now is already covered and its still going strong. Who knows when it will stop! I know one thing for sure, I am not going anywhere today. I am going to stay inside where it is nice and warm and dry!!!
He wasn't so sure about the gloves. It was his first time wearing them.

Shopping on Black Friday

Well my mom and I decided that we would try to get some of the really great deal on the day after Thanksgiving sale. We weren't as crazy as some of the people who go because we waited until 9 am to get out. We still got a bunch of really great deals. I was so excited because I got all of the kids Christmas shopping done on that day. We took the kids with us because everyone else was busy doing things to babysit. We only went to 3 stores and we had just left the first on our way to number 2 when Caden fell asleep. I thought that we were going to be in trouble because if you wake Caden up before he is ready you will hear about it. Well we decided we would just move him into the cart and let him sleep! ( I prayed that he would stay alseep because I had tried it before and it never worked). Well he must have been extremely tired becuase he stayed asleep and even slept the whole time we were there which was almost and hour. I think that next year if I go I will be sure to have a babysitter lined up. It will make things so much faster and easier!

Thanksgiving Trip 08

So we went to my mom and dad's house for Thanksgiving this year. The kids and I went a little earlier than Aaron so I could work and earn a little money. It was fun and way worth the time because I got a paycheck and I haven't gotten one of those in a long time. It made me feel like I had done something to help my family out in a difficult time. We actually had dinner over at my Aunt and Uncle's house and we had a great Thanksgiving. They had so much food, but I could only get myself to have one helping. I was proud of myself for that. I am sure I will have seconds at Christmas. One thing I thought was funny was this was one of the first Thanksgivings that my mom didn't have to cook and she was feeling like something was missing so she went ahead and made a turkey and a bunch of other things to make it feel like Thanksgiving at home.

While we were there I asked Caden if he was ready for a bath and he got very excited, as he always does. He was gone when I turned around to get him undressed. I go into the bathroom, where I had already ran the bath, and there he was in the water fully dressed. It was so funny because he just wanted to take his bath. He lives for his night time baths and it helps me as well because it calms him down.

Fun Times!

Yesterday was a very eventful day between the two kids. First in the afternoon Alexis really found her voice. She sat there and talked to me and laughed at me. I was so excited because she is really interacting now and it is fun. She is talking even more today and I love being able to talk to her and finally get a reaction. Then she decided she wanted to roll over, but I missed it because I turned my head for two seconds. I wish I could have seen it, but I will hopefully get to see roll number two. Then she is already "crawling". She pulls her knees up under herself and then she pushes with them and goes forward. I was telling her that she is supposed to roll ever first and I guess she did, but just once. I can't believe it. She is not quit 5 months yet, but she is very determined to get somewhere and she will get there. I think that she is going to be a very crazy and independant girl. I fear for the future, but I guess we can only worry about today. I don't want to rush her in growing up and miss out on these fun baby times. Hopefully I will be able to get her rolling over &/or "crawling" and put it on here later!

Then last night we went over to Aaron's brother's house for dinner and the bathroom door got left open. Caden decided to go in and is into shutting doors behind him. Well he shut the door and then opened the drawers which are right behind the door. The light wasn't even on and Caden couldn't understand us when we told him to shut the drawer. He though we were saying door so he kept trying to shut the door on us. We tried for 30 min to get it open and finally Aaron got the drawer shut with a hanger and got the door open. By the time the door was open Caden was hysterical because he had been in there so long and it was dark. I was a little scared because I didn't think that we were going to get the door open. But at least he is free and okay.

Having kids is quit a chore, but I think that it is the best chore. I love my kids and can't wait to see what comes next. Life is NEVER boring that is for sure.

My Big Helper

Well Caden is growing up so fast and he has decided that it is time to be my big helper. Whenever I am cleaning he thinks he needs to help and it cracks me up. He will try and push the vacume or sweep. He picks up his toys when I ask him to (well most of the time)! He even likes to help me with the laundry. Yesterday he decide he wanted to help and he was taking clothes out of the dryer and helping put dirty clothes into the washer. He took the dirty clothes over to the washer and tried so hard to reach the washer so I lifted him up so he could reach. He was so proud of himself for what he had done. It was so cute. While the dryer was empty Aaron decided to put Caden in the dryer and he thought it was fun until daddy left to get the camera and then it wasn't so much fun anymore. He is such a daddy's boy and doesn't like it when Aaron leaves. He always waits by the door at night. And when I say "daddy's home", he gets this big smile on his face and runs to the door.
