Cade is growing up!!

Well our sweet Cade in growing up. Tonight, during story time, William decided we should be a kitty cat family. This is nothing out of the ordinary, every night the boys pick a different creature, dogs, cats, dinosaurs, tigers; you get the picture, and we are that family until the next night. Tonight, however, was a little different. Cade looked at me, pushed his blanket away and said, "kitty cats don't need blankets." To which I promptly agreed. We said prayers, hugs and kisses, and the lights went off. Right before leaving the room, I reminded him that when William put his blanket in the special box in the garage, he got a prize; and if Cade left his blanket in the special box in the garage he would get a prize too. Michael and I waited for the door to open and well, it never did... and ; Well I guess we are going to Wally world tomorrow to pick out a special prize, because he NEVER got up asking for it.

I did get the privilege of hearing a conversation after walking out of the bedroom.
William: Cade, I thought you liked your blanket?
Cade: I know, but I'm a big boy now.
William: I know, I know. (so sweet)

I'll let you know what big boy prize he picks. William picked a skate board . Next on the list.... Potty Training

I can't finish this post without leaving a montage of pictures of Cade with his blanket. I mean lets face it, did you really expect anything different?

Cade always sucks his middle two fingers with his blanket. So Sweet, Cade around 7 months.
Our sweet boy, 13months. He used to have about 4 blankets that he would take, but as you go through the pictures you will notice the polka dot one becomes the favorite and eventually the only one used.

His blanket is his best sleeping buddy. Here he is in the car, with blanket in tow.

No matter where we the blanket was not too far behind. Fourth of July, fireworks (2008).

Christmas Parade 2008 with our friends, Addy, Courtney and William. Christmas 2008: He was done taking pics.

Thanksgiving 2009

On Noon Wednesday our family started our 13 hour drive to the big ole state of Mississippi, to see my MawMaw, and a ton of other family. We haven't been there in almost 5 years; so We had so much fun catching up with the family and seeing all the additions to the family. We spent our time:


here is the biggest catch of the day. Grandad (my dad) with the brothers.

William and I caught this baby! With a little/a lot of help from Uncle Jared!!

MawMaw and all the great-grandkids

Needless to say the house was full, and rowdy, but we are so thankful for the love that was shared!


Over the last month, Cade has really started to show his little boy personality more and more. Apart from copying William. Cade has always had wonderful comic timing, and that has continued to develope, but his expression always crack me up. Here are some sweet pictures of our boy.

You can't help but smile at that little face!

Cade was hiding his face from me and saying, "Mommy I lost my eyes... can you see them? Where are my eyes?" Then he would pop his head up and say... "Mommy, I'm just kidding, they are right here by my nose"
Cade and william hooked the two cars together and were playing train. William is so precious, but I especially wanted to share this picture of Cade... He is so silly here.


Well I am once again WAAAAY behind on my blog! But I am gradually going to try to catch up.

For Halloween we were a band of Pirates.... arn't they cute!!

Visiting the pumpkin patch... and yes this is the best picture I got... no one wanted to cooperate that day. But we did get a awesome pumpkin!

Hope you all had a fun and spooky Halloween!
