It has been almost 3 months since my last post and I can blame it on a few things.... Being busy with a 3 year old, spending great times with great friends,working,and taking an interest in facebook!! Where does the time go?? By the time I make another post it will be Christmas. We have been enjoying watching Caden play soccer and soon T-ball. We have been enyjoying boating, Kings Island, cook-outs, birthday parties, zoo outings, fishing, putt-putt and just hanging out with friends and family. The sports have begun with Caden and I have a feeling it will be a long time before we settle down. Like 20 + years!! That's ok..we love it and it is great memories for all of us. My dad's 50th birthday is Thursday and I will be turning 30 in September...Big milestones. Caden is so funny with the things he comes up with and anyone who has had a child or is going through this stage knows. Caden the other day said "Mommy it's just too hard to fall asleep by myself. Can you lay with me?" They are so smart and try to manipulate at such an early age ( : He over heard me tell someone on the phone that Caden has had a rough day and the next morning as we are getting ready for Pre-school he says "mommy, I don't want to go to school today." I asked why and the response was " I had a rough day." (which I guess he meant a rough night) He tried!!

Caden has been practicing soccer and t-ball whenever the weather is nice. Grandma Sheppard came down today and bought him some shin gaurds. He starts Wee Soccer in April and hopefully t-ball in June. He thinks when he wears the shin gaurds he can fall whenever and where ever he wants! Even on the concrete! Sorry grandma there are already scuffed up, but he really likes them. This is a fun age. The sports begin ( :

Savannah's 3rd Birthday

Savannah had her 3rd Birthday party at Kazoing today and all the kids had a blast. Everyone including the parents sure did burn a lot of energy. Thanks for the invite Savannah we had a great time. After the party Miller came back with us while BJ and Matt headed down to Kosair Hospital to take care of Madden. He had been sick and ended up very dehydrated and had to get I.V fluids. Thankfully he is going to be ok after the fluids, rest and a lot of T.L.C. We will be praying that he get's well soon. Caden and Miller, with whatever energy they had left played soccer, used their new sidewalk chalk that Savannah gave them, and played with each other until they nearly passed out. As soon as Miller left around 6pm., Caden took a bath and was out cold by 7:25 which would have been 6:25 if the time hadn't changed. He was worn out. They next 3rd birthday that we will be counting down will be William's!!!
A day at the Zoo!!!

Spring is almost here and I am sure everyone is like me...Ready for the weather to stay this beautiful. Caden and William had fun at the Zoo. When I asked what his favorite animal was he replied "the carousel and the train" not exactly an animal, but I wasn't suprised. We ended the zoo and went for ice cream at Baskin's Robin's and thinking with no nap they would crash...Nope! They ended the day riding William's 4-Wheeler. They had a lot of fun letting me take them one at a time and they got to ride together. We look forward to many more nice days in the sun ( :

Weekend at Grandma's

Grandma had us over last weekend and we really enjoyed ourselves. Caden played with her dog Max, worked puzzles, played games, watched movies and the next morining we all went to the Louisville Science Center and Imax. What a great weekend! She lives in Charlestown,IN and like Nick's family we just don't see each other enough. Caden really enjoyed going to the science center and it has been a long time since I have been there so it was fun for everyone.

Happy 3rd Birthday Caden

Caden turned 3 yesterday and he had a wonderful birthday party thanks to all our friends and family. We deceided to have Caden's construction party at my dad and step-mom's house so we would have plenty of room to play and have fun. Thanks dad and Julie for all your help and lending us your house for the day ( : All the kids got hard hats, orange cone cups and played with trucks, balls, drums and just had fun. Caden loves all his great gifts from everyone, but I think just having everyone there to celebrate was the best part. Our little boy is growing so fast. Finally in his big boy bed, with his big boy haircut I guess the only thing next will be to have another baby.. But not until next year. Sorry grandma!! Caden also had a great time at Miller's birthday party last week. I think I will have to buy him an event calender ( : 2 more weeks and Savannah will be having her 3rd birthday. I think the kids really enjoy being kids and just getting to play with each other. Nick and I look at Caden and we are so thankful for the last 3 wonderful, healthy years with him.
