Happy BirThDaY Cameron!

Even though Cam turned the BIG "1" a little over a month ago, we waited to have his birthday party until after his daddy returned from Iraq! Everyone had a wonderful time and I was proud of the cake and cupcakes I was able to make since he loves BIG BIRD (and Sesame Street in general)! Thanks everyone for making the day fun for Cameron and giving Aaron such a warm welcome home!

Happy Veteran's Day!

On this Veteran's Day, please remember why, how and who makes our Nation the great one that it is! We are the land of the FREE because of the BRAVE!
All gave some and some gave all
And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all

I thought the below article was pretty neat...

A wonderful morning in the city of Auburndale with the Baker Family!

!!A Day Out with Thomas!!

We have waited for a long time to see Thomas! They didn't visit FL last year, at least not near us. We drove a little over three hours to get to see Thomas and it was well worth it. Both boys had a blast. Cameron already loves Thomas (thanks to his big bro!) Daddy and I had a lot of fun as well :) Ahhh...that was just the beginning of our block leave...FL here we come!

Church Fall Fest

We were invited to a wonderful Fall festival at our friends the McCulloughs church. There were a ton a people there, but we had fun. The best part was the "animal dude" at the end of the night! We saw a tortoise, a vulture, a baboon and a python...which I refused to look at! Good times had by all :)

Caiden's Fall Festival

Caiden's school had their annual Fall Festival last week and Caiden had a blast. Daddy wasn't able to make it but we were able to tell him ALL ABOUT IT! You will notice from some of the pictures there is Caiden and a little boy named Asher standing together. Then there are a line of kids standing together. Caiden found that if he jumped on this gutter guard it made an extremely loud noise. So he gathered several kids and started now STOP! Even putting his hand in the air to stop everyone. I tell you this kid is a ham...he keeps me laughing constantly :)

It is so hard for me to believe that my baby is ONE! What a day today was...not only did we not get to talk to Aaron until late, we ended up at the hospital in the Pediatric Emergency Room with Cam :( Yes it was horrible, but both of the boys were troopers. Caiden was on the down end of his bout with the flu and poor little Cam got it. Tested positive at the hospital and they put him on Tamiflu which helped it go away in about two days (at least the fever part anyway).
This year has had it's moments that's for sure...but I can still remember them lying this little bity 5 lb 7 oz human in my hands. I just kept thinking...he's so tiny. Now look at him!!! We love you Camo...HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY our littliest buddy!
