Happy Birthday Baby!

Kade Martin Graham
November 21, 2007
Today is my little one's birthday. I know I posted about his party a few days ago, but I just wouldn't feel right if I didn't do anything on his actual birthday (I'm weird I know, he won't remember it no matter what I do). This post is going to be dedicated to Kade's favorite person. I am telling you, when my dad is around he does not want anyone but him. Kade lights up when my dad walks into the same room as him, and it in turn makes my dad light up. My dad is so awesome it is no wonder that my boys love him so much. Kade is named after his "pa pa" (middle name, don't get me started on the story, let's just say it is the only name of my dads that my wonderful hubby would "allow"), and it totally fits because he looks just like him. So happy birthday Kade here is a couple of pictures of you with your favorite person in the world...Pa-pa. I love you my sweet little boy.

This is about 10 minutes later, they are both zonked. Who does that?! What kid just falls asleep sitting on someones lap? Certainly not my kids.....usually. Apparently I need to take my daddy with me everywhere so my kids will nap without putting up a fight. I love you Kadeos!

A special thanks to my dad, I am so glad that they love you and mom so much. You guys are awesome how could they not love you. I have the best parents in the world, which in turn gives my kids the best grandparents in the world! Love you meema and papa!

Birthday Party!

This past Saturday we had a combined birthday party for Graham (Amy and Ron's little guy) and Kade. Graham and Kade are only 6 days apart (Graham the 15th, Kade the 21st) so we decided to do it together this year. It was a lot of fun for us, the kids could really care less with what was going on. Thank you to all of the family, Ruthee and Brian & Celynda for coming, Graham and Kade love you!

Daddy helping Kade open his many presents. I think Blake enjoyed this part more than Kade did. He didn't quite understand that it wasn't his party.

Cake time! This was Kade's favorite part for sure. He sat there eating his cake for 10 minutes before I took him to clean him up. We didn't get a picture of the mess he made of his face and arms, I wish we would have. Graham and Kade are so cute together! They love to play/hit eachother, and Amy and I like to joke about our lovable ebony and ivory cousins! We absolutely love having Graham in our family, he is such a joy!
Awesome awesome LaDawn (my sis in-law) made our cake again, she is amazing. Once again I think Blake got more of a kick out of the cake than the boys did. All in all it was a good party and I am glad we did it. Happy Birthday Graham! Happy birthday to Kade this Friday!


My sisters birthday was in October and my awesome parent's gave her tickets to the Carrie Underwood concert. She decided that she loved me best and took me with her! We had so much fun! Little Big Town opened the show followed by the awesome and great Carrie Underwood, who by the way, sounds even better live. It was really nice to have a night out with my sister. Thank you to Heidi for taking me with you! I love you my sister!

This is Ms. Underwood singing her heart out. My sisters camera would not zoom! So this is the closest shot we got of her.
Heidi and I having a blast!
Little Big Town, they sounded awesome too. I liked them before the concert, but we liked them so much after that my sister went and bought their CDs.

A story of a baby and a toddler getting drunk.
What?!?!?! I know that is what you are all thinking, so here comes the story.
Saturday night after I fed the kids, I sat down to eat. Blake and Kade were running around playing so I wasn't too worried about it. I knew they were in the kitchen with Blake's cars. We heard them both laughing so we were figured they were fine. Then we got that feeling "go check on your kids" so I walk in the kitchen and Blake is spraying Kade in the face with this....
and they are both laughing! At first we thought they were just spraying it on the ground and playing with it, but then Adam picks up Kade and it is all over his face. I started freaking out and put him in the bathtub to flush his eyes and clean it all off of him while Adam called poison control. Through all of that we didn't even put the darn cleaner away, so Adam comes walking into the kitchen again while he is on the phone and Blake is spraying the stuff in his mouth!!! Luckily it is the all natural cleaner so the poison control people said that it is just like drinking alcohol and that we needed to give them bread to eat. All of our cleaners were under the sink in the kitchen and we had been trying to figure out a way to child proof with out voiding the warranty we have on our cabinets (no drilling into the wood). Well problem solved they are no longer there, I moved them all to the hall closet on the top shelf. A little inconvenience is well worth my children not getting each other drunk off of our cleaners!!
