Doggy Doors!

What kids do. I never thought that someone else would go through Koda's door besides him. McKayla and Kaden can always come up with something, once they figured out that they could fit they would not stop. Koda stay outside looking at them going through his door wondering what kind of animal they were.

Back To WORK!

I never thought it would be so hard to return to work. My first shift back was Monday night. Even though Kadee was home with dad it still was hard living her and knowing that I was going to be gone for over twelve hours. I must say that dad did a great job, at least Kadee didn't have any complaints the next day. It really makes you appreciate having a great husband that makes for a great dad.

We love KADEE!

First White Dress

Her big day in her big dress. Kadee was blessed today by her dad, it was very special. We had lots of family that came. It is awesome to see everyone get together and enjoy each other company. It's fun to watch the cousins play, and fight with each other.

Kadee loves her brother!

Koda may be big, but Kadee does not mind. We are teaching her young that Koda is good for a few things and one is horsey rides. Daddy just needs to find a saddle.

Our Little GIRL!!!

Our LIttle Girl

I never could have imaged how much joy would come with having a little girl. The thought of looking back to the way things were before we had Kadee seemed easy. I could make plans to clean the house or do laundry, it would be simple tasks, and now some of those simple tasks may take me a couple of days to complete. Let me tell you there is not one thing I would change I love being a mom. There are many things I have learned and many things still to learn. Kadee puts big smiles on her mom, and dads face with just the simple things she does. Kadee will be blessed on Sunday by her dad. Nothing makes me more happy than knowing that John is able to bless her. I am very lucky to have such a great husband, and dad for our daughter.

Off we GO!!!

Kadee had her first vacation it was to Hawaii! She went with daddy, mommy, grandpa and grandma Crosland, uncle Shane and her three cousins, Sadie, Taylor, and Luke. She was only three weeks old, but was the best traveler. I think that many of our friends and family thought we were crazy for going, but who needed a vacation more than new parents. Kadee got her first sunburn while we were visiting the Dole Plantation and by the time we left to come home her little face was peeling. What bad parents!! We were there for seven days, mommy was ready to come home. Dad, mom, Shane and Sadie went deep sea fishing on uncle Rex's boat. It was something that we had never done before and most likely will not do again for a while. Uncle Rex is now in his eighties and will most likely be getting rid of his fishing boat. While we were out we saw lots of dolphins and whales, we even caught a fish that weighed close to 100lbs and sold at the market for $2.50 a pound. Kadee stayed back with grandma. We were not able to go see the volcano, it was very active and was not safe. Daddy and Shane went para sailing. They had a blast.

Kadee's Cousins

Kadee's Cousins

Kadee has lots of cousins who love her, they love coming to see her. Her cousin Hailey isn't sure if she is Kadee or Kenya. My sister had a baby three days after Kadee was born and they named her Kenya. I guess when you are two a baby is a baby although she is getting much better at telling them apart. Kadee has eight cousins on my side and two with one on the way in John family. Taylor wishes she could come move in and take care of Kadee all the time, it would be a great thought but she still wants to be the baby. If Sadie wanted to I would consider it she would be a great help. Kaden and McKayla are on the other side. Kaden really loves to hold her and sit in her car seat. McKayla on the other hand is not quite sure about her, she would rather just play with her things in her room.
