Happy Birthday Little Caden Bug!

With the move and preparing for Christmas, we still had time to celebrate our little Caden's 10 month birthday. Time has flown, and you are getting so big! We love how you are coming up with more sounds, and your little tooth is so cute. You are perfectly content with cruising holding onto things, and Mommy and Daddy have a little more time to prepare for you to be running around with your brother! Your little smile, and giggle melts our hearts, and you think your brother Cole is the funniest guy around. You still love to be held, and mommy sure does love to snuggle you! I love your hugs and wet kisses! You are such a love bug, and that's how you got your nickname "bug."
You and your brother make each day so much fun, and we love you both so much!

We have been horrible with keeping up with the blog, but give us a little break we have been crazy busy with moving. We absolutely love our new home, and promise to put up new pics asap. Still trying to get set up for Christmas, so as soon as the tree in up tomorrow, we'll take some. Hope you are enjoying your holiday season! :)

Busy Time Of Year!

First bath funny!
Breakfast of champions....don't tell Daddy!
Driving with Uncle Mark.
In Yakima before Thanksgiving.

We had an awesome Thanksgiving in Yakima, and we're VERY happy it didn't snow! It is always great spending time with family, and better catching up when you haven't seen each other in awhile.
We have been busy shopping for the house, and we just signed the papers today. We are excited, but will be more excited when we are finally in our new home, and settled in. It is amazing when you think buying a house is a large purchase, but then furnishing a larger home, and of course buying fun things, are also big purchases. It is all very exciting, and I am still happy to be close to family!
Jamin and I think it is funny how our little Cole has managed to grow up drastically in the last week. He is such a big boy, and quite a good conversationalist. He's a talker...wonder where he gets that from? :)
Caden has been doing some growing up too, and has recently found the love of the big legos, and anything he can make noise with. Both boys are learning to play together, and it is so fun to watch!

Happy 9 Month Caden!

Happy 9 Month Birthday to My Little Caden Bug! You are getting so big, and we can hardly believe it has been 9 months. Your newest thing is pulling yourself up onto everything and cruising around tables and furniture. You have almost mastered transferring from the table to the couch. You are able to walk with your walking toy. Your face is priceless, because you are so proud, and so are we! We Love you SO much, and have enjoyed watching you grow into the little boy you are. We are so excited for what's to come!!

Loved to swim in the stuff!
Boys are a bit overwhelmed by the stuff...
Love this hat!

Since we found out they accepted our offer on the house, life once again has been crazy busy. We waited 10 long months for a short sale, but it is appearing to have been worth all the wait. The past few weekends we have been buying fun things for the house, and running around from place to place, making sure ALL are happy with our new decor! :)
We will post pics soon of the house, and will be closing on the 5th of December, which is just in time for the busiest time of year, but we couldn't be happier!

We are getting very excited for Halloween! Cole really wanted nothing to do with cleaning out his pumpkin, as he told me, "Just You Do It!" I carved my first "High Tech" pumpkin, which for me is anything but the triangle eyes and nose. Things you do for your kids! Jamin of course had to upstage in the pumpkin making, and perfectly carved the Boo ghost. I was rather proud of the outcome of both pumpkins, and Cole was more than pleased with his Little Monster pumpkin.

Happy 8 Month Caden!

We are still shocked that 8 months has gone by this quickly! Soon we will have a 3 year old and a 1 year old! They sure do keep us busy, but we wouldn't have it any other way!
Happy Birthday Caden! We Love you so much!

*How about you stop pulling up on everything, and lets not walk for a couple more months. :)

Congratulations Linds and Scott!

This past Saturday was Lindsey Hinckley's wedding. She has been one of my best friends since my sophomore year of college. Her and Scott's wedding was so unique, and creatively done. Her mom is absolutely amazing, and had an awesome group of friends and family that made the day possible. I am not the best at describing, as I leave that to my husband. The theme/ tone was very "Gatsby," so vintage, and it really gave me and a chance to step outside of my "Plain Jane" box. (Or as I prefer to say, classic!) The colors were black and white, and it almost seemed club like at the reception. So much time and thought went into every detail. Linds had said she wanted something different, and not like anything else she had been to. She and her mom delivered, and it was AMAZING! The ceremony was beautiful, and in true Hinckley fashion, they threw one heck of a party. Jamin loved all the details, as he embraces anything historical/vintage. He also didnt mind the cigars they gave out, but I told him that it was just for show, and not actually to be used ;)
She was a beautiful bride, and I am so happy for her and Scott. I wish them all the best!
