This is a video of pretty much nothing in particular. So many of our family and friends don't get to see Kayden often so I figured this was the best way to share her. Hope you enjoy. Just to warn you, it is kind of long.
We are back from traveling now. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and Happy New Year! Lots to blog about, but I will try to hit highlights from the past week or so.
Saturday before Christmas Terri came to town. We miss her and love when she is here. We had family Christmas with my Mom's side of the family. After most people had left, Kayden started walking. She took 4 or 5 steps a few times. I didn't have my camera ready, so no pictures. I was so proud of her. I cried, of course...
Christmas morning, we woke up to a huge ball pit in our living room for Kayden from Santa! She loves it! Mainly enjoys throwing the balls out, but it keeps her entertained. We had Christmas with my sister, parents and grandparents before getting on the road for TN.
We had Chrsitmas with the Hicks' Christmas night. It is always alot of fun too. The kids get tons and so do we, but it is hilarious to see the mess in the living room when we are done! Kayden got a tricycle. She can sit on it, but hasn't mastered the peddling. She walked a ton up there too. We don't get to see John's family that often, so when they get to see Kayden, it is all about her. Within the first day she was calling GMama and PawPaw and reaching for them. It was cool there and actually felt like Christmas.
Janice was such a big help with Kayden. She fed her, bathed her, rocked her, read to her and played with her most of time time we were there. It allowed me some time to shop with Mary, my wonderful sisiter in law. I did some shopping too. After Christmas sales were calling my name!
On Thursday John went to Louisiana to see Jeffrey and hunt. They had a blast, of course. Anyone who knows Jeffrey Thornton knows what fun he is. When you put them together, watch out.
Kayden and I made the 10 hour trip back home, by ourself! I know, I know, I have lost my mind. But, Kayden did great! She watched movies, slept and played very well. I have such a wonderful daughter and I love her so much.
My sister and my parents took Kayden Sunday so I could sleep and take down Christmas stuff. I got it all put up in a few hours and unpacked too! I am so obsessive compulsive when it comes to that.
New Years Eve we ate at my aunts house and then went to my parents and played dominos. We stayed up until midnight and watch the ball drop. I think that New York scene is awesome but WAY too many people for me! My sister left on Tuesday to head back to AR! She is so fun to hang around and I wish she were closer. She makes me laught so hard I could use her here alot more often!
I haven't put any goals or dreams for 2007 on paper although I have alot in my head. I wish health and happiness for my family and friends. I may work on more in a few days.
