*Afternoon Outdoors*

We spend most afternoons outside when it is warm enough (FL weather has been so crazy lately, I am ready for the summer!) Caiden and I enjoyed making chalk art...or maybe I should say Caiden enjoyed ordering me what to draw with the chalk and then posing by it! Cameron enjoyed the warm air and sunshine...he loves having his feet free so his little toes can play :) And OF COURSE Caiden had to get some riding in on his big boy bike...vroom vroom he says...I'm fast as dash...right before he crashes onto the grass because he is not paying attention to where he is going! And of course...momma laughs :)

HE'S THREE!

It is so hard for me to believe Caiden turned three already! He has grown up into such a handsome little man...and I am thankful to God every day for giving him to me and his daddy! Even though he is loud, and lately doesn't listen as much as I would like him to...I wouldn't change ONE THING about him!!! He is exactly what I need to keep me going every day while his daddy his gone. He gives me hugs when I need them, walks on my back when it hurts, and has a smile that lets me know everything will be just fine~!~ So Happy Birthday Little Man! Momma and Daddy love you SO MUCH! We are so proud of our BIG BOY :)

Caiden's Class Birthday Party

Cameron and I took cupcakes to Caiden's school the Thursday before his birthday to celebrate with his class. His teacher has a wonderful "frog" hat they get to wear on their birthday that I couldn't seem to make stay on his head, but he had a really good time wearing it! Nicholas, Caiden's BEST BUDDY, is in the upper left hand corner with him! They are just like little peas in a pod :)
On another note... I just think it is a little funny as soon Caiden came back from music class and saw me in the class room he let out this big squeal. Mrs. Groetsch his teacher said "he's never done that before!" I told her he does it all of the time at home...why do children act SO GOOD around people other than their parents!?! I am thankful he is pretty good around others...otherwise no one would want to be friends!

~Our Little Soldiers~


Aren't they so adorable :) Of course I am going to say that...Cameron is really sitting up well and has even got a little bit of chunk starting to show...well at least I think he does! Caiden is always saying that he is "going to the Army to work" just like Daddy, so I thought that we might play dress up and it was just a fun photo opp for me! Hope you all enjoy my little soldiers!

Our Hero

Aaron has been flying a LOT lately...and has seen so many beautiful and not so beautiful places! We miss him like crazy, but feel so blessed that we get to talk to him almost every day! The Internet has made this deployment less painful for sure! We are hoping to be seeing him some time in March for R&R! We can't wait!!!

Pizza and a Weekend of Fun!

Uncle Tommy and Uncle Bobby are at the Farm aka Sharm all the time now, so we get to see Aunt Jill and Colton all the time. We enjoyed a night of pizza with friends and family and a weekend of playing and fun with ALL the cousins (6 to be exact even though Cameron doesnt play most of the time!) Caiden loves to play with his cousins and I love him to play with them...then is he not so hyper and he sleeps well!

We recently took a trip down to Venice, FL to visit our friends the Atkins! Brooke was the kids were with us (and Ryan sometimes too) in NC while we were stationed there. They were down visiting Ryan's folks and we spent a weekend with them...it was lots of fun! We got to play at the park and visit Jungle Gardens too! Thanks for the hospitality...we love seeing you all! Can't wait until our next venture!

Getting So Big...


Still spits up quite a bit, but the newest thing he loves to do it eyeball your food while you are eating. I am sure that he will be eating some type of food in the next couple of months himself! He loves grabbing onto his hands and feet...it amazes him that they go together. His bro loves to pop up out of no where and make him smile, even though sometimes he is a WEE BIT too loud! Caiden loves laughing at him though!

Broffers


Caiden and his little Bub or Bubba as he calls him are always posin' for the camera...mainly because I insist! :) They are both getting so big...when Daddy comes home for R&R Cameron will be able to sit up I am sure...and he also likes to pull hair!
