The Holidays are Here!

Well, this is my first posting into the “Blog” so we will see how this goes. Today was Kaiden’s Christmas Program at her Preschool. She did really well and looked adorable. They basically just sang some Christmas songs and smiled for all the crazy parents. I cannot believe that the year is almost over. So much has happened this year, we had a second child, sold our house and are building a new house in Suffolk. It seems like just yesterday I was a kid myself, and now I am raising two of my own. Kaiden is 3 now and is smart as a whip. Ashton is 9 months old and is really starting to get some major personality - it is so much fun to watch them both grow.

Kaiden is very excited for Christmas and insists on talking to Santa during each and every trip to that mall. She is also very quick to let me know that Santa is watching mommy too, when she is upset with me. Well I hope all is well with everyone and will post again soon.

Happy Holidays to Everyone!
