A New Year Continues

In efforts to keep to my word about keeping my blog updated, and also so Andrew won't give me crap about not updating my blog, I decided to tell you what's happened in the last couple of days

New Year's Day was really fun since we didn't have anything that we needed to do. I love days when you don't have to set an alarm clock. Not that we can really sleep in anymore. We have a little Caden alarm clock now. We really just hung around the house for the day. Here was Caden working with mommy on his ability to stand:
Ryan had some fun with Caden while he was napping as you can see from this picture. It looks like he had a little too much fun the night before. I told him we should have put sparkling juice in his arm instead of champagne. It is a pretty funny picture:

Last night Andrew, Nicole, Maddie, and Alexis came over to play some board games. Well, Maddie didn't really play the board games. She did, however, enjoy trying to find as many buttons to push as possible. It was cute. We ended up playing balderdash, Cranium, and Trivial Pursuit. We stayed up way too late. We will all, however, never forget the meaning of jubate, or the incorrect meaning of shirty.

Danny started the game with us, but he took his leave once Tahja, his girlfriend, got to our house. Yes, you heard me correctly. Danny is dating a nice young lady named Tahja. It is short for Anastasha. I am not sure how she spells her full name, but I know she is Tahja for short. We don't know her too well yet, but she seems pretty nice. She came over tonight and Danny cooked dinner. Ryan, Caden, and I were out of the house at a dinner at Jay and Linda's. Danny cooked Tilapia for her. She is a vegetarian who eats fish. I will try to see if I can get a picture of the two love birds to post. To hold you off for now I can tell you that she is a little shorter than Danny, has blond hair, is pretty thin, and is cute. I will keep you updated.

I went to Archiver's today to buy the supplies to make the invites for Caden's baptism. It will be my first time using my Cricut, so I am excited. I hope to start them tomorrow. The baptism is going to be February 1st, so I need to get them done. Ryan's aunt Linda is going to help me finish them next week sometime.

I also need to work on the shower invites for Cara's baby shower. It is going to be January 31st. I will also be using the Cricut for this. I have the wording down, but I need to figure out what paper I am going to use. I didn't find anything at Archiver's that stood out to me. I will have to keep looking.

I also want to congratulate my cousin Jenni on the birth of her son Christopher Michael. He was born on the 31st. He is a little peanut and was only 5 pounds 8 ounces at birth. When I talked with Grandma today she told me he is down to 5 pounds 2 ounces. He is a full three pounds smaller than Caden was! I can't even imagine. I am off to the Carter Outlet store to pick up some Preemie outfits for the little guy. Both baby and mom are still in the hospital, but we hope they will be home in the next couple days.

My cousin Nikki has also been going through a lot lately healthwise. She is constantly in my thoughts! We are all hoping to get good news for her soon as she sees a specialist.

That's it for now!
