Back.... finally

Ok, so it's been awhile. I have been keeping up with everyone else's blogs, but when it came to ours I slacked. Didn't really mean to, but when I'd think about doing an update, I'd find just about anything else to keep myself from having to do it. :) But I'm back now. Instead of a complete play by play, I'll just post some pics over the last couple months. We had Kade's 1st birthday in August. SO FUN!!! I went a little out of control and maybe a tad over the top, but whatev, we had a great time!!! Mimi, Gigi, and Maw Maw did so much for his big day, It was awesome and super cute decor. (I can say that since I have zero creativity so it was really everyone else that put it together):))

We got pics taken of Kade and our new cousin Jay. He is 1 year younger than Kade and so stinking cute. I love him!!! I'll post pics of him soon. Kade loves him too. :) I love the pic above because Kade is dancing. M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E... Sing that and you get the cutest lil dance. It's adorable! We LOVE mickey. It's funny, he points him out and sings the mickey song every time he sees him. Cant pass the Disney store at the mall without stopping to say hi!!

And Christmas.... Love the holidays but I'm exhausted! We have 4 places to be and it takes a toll on all of us. Kade was pretty fussy and Shane and I were making excuses left and right. "We missed nap time," "it's nap time," "he's tired," etc, etc... you know. Then on Monday the poor guy breaks out in hives ALL OVER HIM!! Took him to the dr and turns out he was sick and this was the end of it. Some viral deal that leaves his body as a rash... Sooooo, turns out I don't have a super cranky kid. He was sick. Poor lil man. Sick with a virus and we're parading him around prob making things worse. Sorry Kaders!!
We had an awesome Christmas this year and we are so thankful for everything God has given us. We are so thankful for our healthy loving family and that Shane's job is going so well. I am thankful I am able to spend my time at home with Kade and watch him grow up. It's amazing. He does something new every day and I can't believe how fast time is going. He's a toddler all of a sudden, climbing on the couch, running through the house, and chasing poor Dixie. I couldn't ask for a better situation for our family and I am so thankful!

On Christmas at my mom's. Kade wasn't "feeling" the family picture deal. Seems he takes after daddy.....

And my fav. Every morning we wake up, have breakfast, and "help" daddy get ready. Kade watches his every move. He loves to brush his teeth with Daddy, they comb their hair together, he pretends to shave and put on after shave. He does everything Daddy does..... and to Daddy's dismay, he loves to carry a purse. Haha, we pretend to be like mommy too. Any bag left on the floor is fair game. :) He carries it around the house and "collects" things in it.
So, things have been good and hopefully it won't take me another 6 months to do another post.
