I's Two!

Cade turned two on December 24. All week we have been teaching him to say "I'm two." Instead it comes out "I's two." It is tradition that we make a really special breakfast for the birthday person and we let them choose what they want to do for the day. Cade wanted to go sledding but with 60 miles per hour wind we decided to play around the house. (This might be the last year we can switch plans on him). That evening we had pizza, cake and ice cream all decked out in the spiderman theme with all of our family. I asked him in the store what he wanted for his birthday theme and for some reason he really really likes spiderman. Our new Christmas Eve tradition has been to celebrate his birthday. Though I never planned on having a Christmas baby we are blessed that his early arrival had no complications. What a blessing in itself!! We love you Cade!!!

One Hot Christmas!!!

I would never wish anybody a fire in their home at any time but, especially around this season. It is rare for me to see a picture of Brian at work and this was in the local paper. He is the one on the left. Unfortunately this family lost most of their home and even a firefighter that lived close by that was not on duty came over to help because it turned into a grass fire and they needed to get all of the surrounding brush chopped and away from the fire.

As I think of these people and the heartache they are going through and will still be going through I am thankful for the many blessings that I have. I realize (though I have always known) what precious gifts I already have and to cherish them a little longer than usual.

This picture reminds me of all the things I love about Brian. Though his humor and quickness to make me laugh is very high on my list. I realize that even though he gets paid to help others, he would never hesitate to help someone regardless of pay. His willingness to serve others makes me strive to be a better wife and mother.

My precious gifts are all I really need this Christmas Season and am excited to share it with them. May you all have a Wonderful Christmas!!!!

We Love COOKIES!!!!

For Family Home Evening we were going to go and drive around and look at Christmas Lights and Decorations. We were predicted 1-3 inches of snow (closer to the 1 inch range) instead we got 10-12 inches of snow depending on where you live. Let me just say that the snow plow came onto our street and plowed it five times that I know of. Anyways, It was snowing so much and I came home at 3:30 from some errands and people were driving like the streets were bone dry. I decided we were not going out that it was a great night instead to make cookies after a dinner and a bath. It was quite successful because Brian and Cade did most of the work while I supervised!!!

It's Official...

Cade is going to be a BIG BROTHER!!! He really doesn't understand. Everytime we talk about a baby he goes to an ornament on the tree with a picture of him as a baby and points to it.

We are very excited and with even happier news I am pregnant with Katie (my sister in law) again. But instead of month's apart we are two days apart. The baby is due on June 8th but many of you know my complications of trying to keep Cade in and so unfortunately I am considered "high risk". That just means I have a lot more testing done than before. I am hoping to not be put on bed rest so, when I enter the third trimester I will probably take everything down to only what is necessary. Gratefully, I have my Mom and Brian to help out and they both have been great. They willingly take Cade wherever they are going so I can rest to keep this one in hopefully a lot longer than before.
Brian can't wait for another baby. Earlier this week he took me to dinner to celebrate the beginning of the Second Trimester. I love that he is so excited and we can't wait to see what a good big brother Cade will be.
