SNOW day....

We got A LOT of snow today so Kayden got to try out his new shovel that he got for Christmas! He went out to help Mommy and Daddy shovel the driveway and got to play in the snow too! He helped Daddy build a "snow" castle..... and then had MORE fun kicking it down!!
And he got to make snow angels too - he was having so much fun in the snow drifts that were way up over his head!! (this is actually the snowpile on the side of our driveway that he is SITTING in, not lying down....if that tells you how much snow we got)
And before we went inside, we had to try out his new sled too...but he was cold (and had lost a mitten) and was tired of being outside at this point. So we headed inside to warm up!

MeRrY ChRiStMaS!

We had such a wonderful Christmas this year!! Kayden enjoyed opening all his presents and we all enjoyed spending time with family! Kayden came down the stairs on Christmas morning to see the lights glowing on the tree and presents underneath!We spent the morning in our jammies opening presents - Kayden wanted to open them all (including the ones for everyone else!) His first present..... ...was a Mr. Potato Head that Daddy picked out - he loved it!!!
He also got a ball pit, basketball hoop, and lots of other fun stuff! After breakfast, we headed back over to Grandma and Grandpa Johnson's to spend the day with the Johnson family. It is always so fun there with all the family and all the kids - they have such a great time together! Opening presents with Daddy.... Reading books with Grampsy (and wearing the CUTE stocking hat that Grandma knit for him!)
Kayden and Hunter checking out the new toys (these two are already trouble together!) And here's the rest of the chaos -this is what I LOVE about a big family! There is always someone else around and something else going on - so many people to share the day with! We headed back home in the afternoon and set up Kayden's new ball pit - he had so much fun playing in it!! (unfortunately, it had a hole in it and by bedtime, one whole side had deflated! so it will be finding its way back to the store and hopefully a replacement of some sort will come in its place) We had a wonderful Christmas -- thank you to everyone for the fabulous gifts and thanks to those that spent the day with us! Merry Christmas!!

Christmas EVE

We spent Christmas Eve at Grandma and Grandpa Johnson's house with the Johnson family and had so much fun! Here's Kayden showing off his "Christmas" outfit...doesn't he look handsome??
Grampsy spent the evening reading to Kayden and Hunter while Connor listened in....he must have read that book 50 times!Kayden got a lot of loving from Cousins Kyra and Landry! They kept calling him their prince/brother/boy all night - it was cute!! (and of course he LOVES the attention!) As the night wore on (and he stayed up 3 hours past his bedtime!) Kayden started to zone out a little more....
...and by the time we tried to get a picture of all 3 boys, he was done with pictures! But look how cute the three of them are -they are certainly going to be trouble in another 6 months!

We got our first snowfall this week and Kayden got to sport his new boots and coat to go out and play yesterday! He helped Mommy shovel the driveway so he could get his bikes out and ride!! We got another couple inches last night and are expected to get a few more today. Unfortunately, we are also supposed to get 40 mph winds and -20 wind chill tomorrow so looks like we won't be back out to play in the snow until Friday. I think it's going to be a long winter........
