Saturday morning

Hudson is still sleeping. So, Kendan and I are having some time together watching Sesame Street, eating Cheerios, and giving kisses. Kendan now will give kisses when I ask, and it melts my heart!!! Close up picture is of Kendan leaning in to give me a kiss. Sweet sweet boy!

The Classic City

The boys and I headed to Athens yesterday to celebrate Liz's birthday with her. We visited with Michelle {she was my house mom when I lived in the sorority house,} and then she kept Kendan while Hudson and I had a date night. He and I went to dinner at Loco's and then met the girls at Stegman Coliseum for the Gym Dawgs meet against Alabama. It was a "pink out" to raise money and awareness for breast cancer. Hudson and I made it about 2/3 of the way through, and then he said, "I'm not enjoying this anymore." Hahahaha. Such a little man. It was a fun night spending time just Hudson and l. I miss living in Athens, and I hate that it doesn't feel like home anymore. :) Love that city!!!!

Praise the Lord!

Kendan had a great doctor's appointment today! The doctor said he was not concerned at all about Kendan. He checked him out thoroughly, and did several measurements of his head, forehead, and eyes. I have had such a peace the last couple of weeks, and I know it is because we have had so many people lifting us up in prayer!

Come to find out, I have a ridge on my forehead as well. The doctor felt our foreheads and told me I had a ridge. He said he was not concerned about Kendan at all! Thank you for all your prayers for our precious Kendan! We love this little boy so much, but we know that our Heavenly Father loves him infinitely more and that gives us such peace!

"See how great a love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; and such we are." 1 John 3:1

Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey

We were given 4 tickets to the circus for last night's 7 PM show. Josh and I took the boys, and also invited Maddox (Hudson & Kendan's cousin) to come along with us. The boys had a good time, and have very expensive light up swords to show for it. :) This year wasn't as good to me as past shows, but I love spending time with my family building memories. The tigers were tired, I think, since it was their 3 rd performance of the day. We actually thought the trainer was about to get mauled. He had to send one particular tiger back into the cages. Here are a few pictures from our evening.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wanted to take today to express what a perfect for me, exceeds all my expectations, awesome man God had picked out for me. Joshua is my best friend. He is a wonderful father to our boys! He is a hard worker, THE most dependable person I know, and it makes my heart happy to know I have him by my side through life!

This is our 8th Valentine's Day together. It is the 7th with him as my husband, and 8 years ago I thought I might be getting a ring, but no...Joshua had bigger and better plans for our engagement and wedding in HAWAII!!!! He made my fairy tale come true, and it was even better than I had envisioned.

I love you, Joshua!!! Happy Valentine's Day!

T-Ball Saturday

Today we started t-ball. Hudson had a GREAT practice! He absolutely loved it! He listened very well to his coaches, and had so much fun. They practice every Wednesday and Saturday until games start in March. I was so proud if him. Practice lasts an hour and a half, which is a long time for this age, but not once did Hudson lose focus.

We are very excited about this season. His team is the Sharks. They play 2 innings, don't keep score, everyone bats each inning, and everyone runs the bases, but he is learning the fundamentals. Next year he will be too old for t-ball, so I am so glad he has this year as a learning year.

Videos posted below. The last one is what Kendan did while brother played ball. :)

Happy Birthday dinner, Kendan

Tonight we had a pancake dinner to celebrate Kendan turning 1. I love this little guy more than words could ever say! He brings our family so much joy! I have the best little boys in the world!!!! For his birthday he got a sand and water table, Mickey laptop, and Mickey board books. Oh, and a trip to Walt Disney World last week. :)

This week we had his one year check up. He weighs 22 lbs. (38%) and is 30.5 inches long (74%). He is walking, but still just a few steps at a time. He loves real people food, and will not eat baby food if he sees real people food. He now plays peek a boo and knows where his belly is. He loves giving hugs, in fact, he gave his cupcake a hug tonight. :) awesome.

Happy Birthday, Buddy!!!

I almost forgot this one. We had all the characters at the birthday party breakfast sign a picture mat for Kendan, and this is the picture I am putting in it.

Kendan we love you so much! We are so thankful that God gave you to us to raise. You are so fun, funny, full of life and wonder. You are so incredibly sweet when you give us big slobbery kisses and when you lay your head on our shoulder and pat giving us a sweet hug. Today I showed you the Mickey Mouse on the cup we were drinking and you gave it a big kiss! We hope your 1st birthday was special! We love you!!!!

Day 5: Magic Kingdom Again

The first three pictures are some I loved that Joshua took from other days this week.

Today is Kendan's 1st birthday, and we started the day with a character breakfast at Chef Mickey's. Then we headed over to Magic Kingdom and rode Peter Pan's Flight twice, Dumbo, the carousel, Snow White's Adventure, the tea cups, the Winnie the Pooh ride, and then we headed to toon town. The birthday boy had a personal meeting with Mickey and Minnie. Mickey Mouse even got down in the floor to play with him. We rode the train all the way around the park and ended the day by watching the Celebration parade. Kendan's favorites today were the carousel and meeting Winnie the Pooh! He kept hugging Pooh. It was so sweet.

Hudson got to meet lots of people today including Mary Poppins, Peter Pan, Pinocchio, Cinderella, Belle, and Sleeping Beauty who were intimidatingly beautiful! He also got to ride Splash Mountain! Then after the parade we came back and played in the pool.

Another wonderful day, and a perfect 1st birthday for Kendan! Hudson says his favorite of the whole trip was Tower of Terror! :) Tomorrow we are opting to not go to a park, but are going to rest, and then eat lunch and shop at downtown Disney. We fly home tomorrow night.
