Butterfield Acres

On Tuesday Kristin, our good friend Justyne and I took the kids to Butterfield Acres. It was a bit chilly but we had a great time! Caden and December LOVED the goats and followed them around while touching their backs. One got away and Caden cried, "Mommy! Can you get my goat? Can you get him, Mommy?!" What do you think of the goat I snapped the individual photo of? Gross! He was smiling for the camera, showing his teeth and batting his ears. Creepy. ;)

So Brad, Kristin, and December leave very soon to go back to California. :( We are all sad about that. Caden is going to miss December terribly. I have never seen 2 children play together as well as December and Caden do. I call them the little tag team. Today Caden went over to play with December and he didn't want to leave. They really do love each other.

4, 5 & 6. Caden and Cayleigh waiting for Grammie to come and take them to MacDonalds. It was so cute that they were watching for her! Poor Cayleigh didn't realize that she wasn't invited. :S
7. My ever-growing belly. I have an ultrasound in a few weeks to find out how far along we really are. I hope that what is there is baby and not just belly!
8 & 9. Caden and Cayleigh being silly yet again at breakfast time.

After the "AHH" post about the basement is a new post about our day at the farm. I don't know why it got published before that post rather than after.

It's finished! Well, pretty well. :) We just need to put the fixtures on, a few more pieces of trim and our plumber is going to put the sink, toilet and shower head in. But we've started moving stuff down tonight. A BIG thanks to Jim, Brad, and the rest of Jeff's family and many of our friends who worked so hard on this basement. We love you guys and we couldn't be more thankful.

Farm Day

I'm pretty sure it was July 31st when Kim took me, Kristin, and the kids to her parents' farm. It was a lot of fun for all of us. And whenever Caden and December are together they have the best of times. :)
