Here is a little bit of commentary to go along with the pictures...
Kayden loves to go riding in her wagon. She slouches down like she is reclining. Very funny.
My cousin Ashley just got back from Australia. He has grown a beard, as you can tell. He looks totally different now. Not bad, just different and older. I like it Ash!
We also put up our Christmas tree. It is by no means fancy, but it has all our personal ornaments and Kayden's ornaments on it. I just love to look at it. Kayden will look at it when we turn it on and say, "OOOOOO".
Terri was here during the break, so of course she is in the slide show.
Some of our good friends have a tradition of grinding sugar cane and making syrup. My Papa did it for a while, but he no longer has the mill, so I like to go and watch when I can. Anyway, we went over to the Copeland's on Thanksgiving Day to watch them make it. It is a complicated process that I know nothing about. I just like chewing on the sugar cane and eating the syrup afterwards. It is so neat to see it done too. John had never watched it before, so we enjoyed it. The Copeland Grandsons are now doing the majority and they did a good job. I love seeing things like this around the holidays. Just makes you appreciate your family and traditions even more.
My Mom also brought a rocking chair to Kayden yesterday. It will go to her house for Kayden but she loved it. We had to feed her dinner while she rocked in it yesterday. She is too funny.
Thankfully, she is over her fever. For two days she has been running fever and today it finally went down. I hate when my baby is sick. She is very clingy and whiny when she is not feeling good. I am glad she is back to her normal, happy, energetic self. Thanks to my Mom and Granny for all their help with her. I couldn't do it without them!
Ok, that should catch me up on blogging. I will try not to let it lapse so much next time.
Oh yeah, one more thing...
Today is Rauly Eason's one year old birthday. This is Kayden's best friend and we just want to wish her a happy one. We love you Rauly and can't wait to see you again.
