Sweet Potatoes

 He wasn't too sure of the first few bites of solid food, 
but after he got into it, he decided sweet potatoes aren't that bad!

Baby Trevin

Kaiden insists Trevin's name is Baby Trevin.  He will correct you.  One day Tito asked him if he was going to call him Baby Trevin when he was older like Kaiden is now.  Kaiden said "No, then he will be Little Boy Trevin".  Tito and I wondered if he will then be Big Boy Trevin, Teenager Trevin and so on .

Gratitude #30

I am grateful that all my Christmas shopping is done and I do not have to deal with the crowds at the stores from now until Christmas.  I do not like to shop in the best of situations and the stores from now until Christmas are far from the best of situations.

When we got together to take family pictures there was still snow on the ground.  We made snowballs and told Kaiden if he would pose for one more group of pictures he could throw the snowballs.
Well,  we didn't wait until the pictures were done.  One was caught,
and thrown back, while one missed Nathan, but was caught in the corner of the picture,
one came really close and everyone but Trevin ducked.

Gratitude #27

A couple of  weeks ago we got together to have a family picture taken.  I invited the boys' Godparents to come.  I am grateful for these wonderful people who made a commitment to the boys.  I am grateful that Nathan and Stacy made such good decisions.

Gratitude #26

Twenty years ago, Tito and I were married.  I am grateful for life we have made together, through better and worse, through sickness and health.  I am grateful that sometimes we are given a second chance and am looking forward to the next 20 years.

Gratitude #25

I am very grateful I live in a country where we have the privilege and duty to vote for our leaders.  I am also very grateful that the ads have stopped!

On one of the last warm days we had, Tito and I took Kaiden to the park.  They both got on the swings and Kaiden was showing Tito how to swing high.  He told him you had to pump, that is the only way.
