We got this book at the library- a level 2 reader- and I thought I would see if Caden could read it to Cayleigh. He could- he is doing so well with his reading. Proud of our little man. :) He will be 5 in September.

We were in Cochrane pretty much all day and the kids had so much fun! Their friends Henry, George and Lilli were there for our run this morning (we went twice!) so that made it all the more fun. :) When I saw that the play place had huge slides I didn't think Caden would do it because he is usually too afraid. But today he showed no fear and wanted Daddy to see how brave he was! :) Cayleigh isn't scared of anything... ;)
The kids were so good today. We had supper at Frank and Louise's house and after supper Caden said thank you to them. Cayleigh went to Louise next and said, "Thank you for having me!". And then little Liana toddled over to Louise, looked her straight in the eyes and said, "Thanks!". Louise and I melted! Liana nuzzled her and blew her kisses. That was a proud Mommy moment. Just because they are small doesn't mean they don't watch and understand. It was so sweet!
And I had to throw in a cute little video of sweet Liana for Daddy. She has learned to nod yes and no. ;) I really cannot thank God enough for my precious family. They are a gift from Him and I thank Him for them. Love you and miss you, Jeff. Praying for you. :)

Well, Jeff is in Russia and we are all missing him. He is there teaching a course to pastors. When he gets back he will primarily be working for the church as an Executive Pastor and will no longer be at the Salvation Army. He is very excited to finally be able to have church work as his primary work. Every time Cayleigh finds or hears something exciting she runs upstairs and says, "I gonna show Daddy!". She really misses him and wants him to come home. :( Caden is being the man of the house- he likes to pray for our meals and helps look after his sisters and helps Mommy with the garbage. Yesterday Cayleigh hurt herself and when we were at the clinic Caden took good care of her and was such a good boy. Little Liana is too busy walking everywhere and getting into everything to miss Daddy too much, but she talks to him on her toy phone a few times a day. :)
We have been busy visiting with family and friends and that helps too. I took a few quick pics today of the kids with their good friends- they are so cute! Caden and Henry are around the same age as are Cayleigh, Catie and George. And then Liana, Isaac, Evangeline and cousin Ariana are all around the same age too. Lots of fun. :) I also posted a few pics of the kids having fun finger painting. :S The one of the flowers/weeds (haha) in the glass is priceless- Caden picked 6 of them and when I asked him why he said, "Because there are going to be 6 of us". So sweet! And I guess that leads to our news...
We are expecting baby #4 in January. :) It is very early so I am just posting it for those who check the blog. I won't put it on facebook yet. We are very excited. Caden will be just a few months past 5, Cayleigh will be just past 3, and little Liana will be 21 months. We are excited they will be close in age. :) It looks like I have a midwife too so we are excited about that. :) We are going to keep the sex a surprise. We pray all will go well and baby will grow healthy and strong. We thank God for His many blessings. :)
