I'll include a picture of him eating his breakfast this morning. Lucky Charms was a favorite cereal of mine when I was a little girl. I probably buy it twice a year for a treat and the box is usually gone within a couple of days. Last week I picked up a couple of boxes in the bargain bin at the grocery store. Caedmon asked me this morning if he could have "chops" for breakfast. Now I need to go get a bowl before he eats it all.

Kevin: For the privilege of raising our children and for my hot wife. (I won't tell you what else he said) :)
Caedmon (3 1/2): football players, hot dogs & family
Kaiya (2): hot dogs & ball
To stop and think of all the things that I am thankful for overwhelms my mind, but my family sticks out the most to me. I am so blessed to have been chosen to be a mom to my two sweet kids and am so thankful for the choice their birth mothers made when they were born. Who could ask for a better gift? And of course I'm thankful for my amazing husband who is my best friend and who takes great care of his family. And most of all, I'm thankful for my Heavenly Father who keeps giving me second chances and loves me unconditionally.

What fun it was to spend the day with my sweet little niece Helen on her first birthday. She's such a happy baby and loves to get her picture taken, smiling from ear to ear every time.
On Sunday morning, the kids woke up bright and early since the time changed. I brought them in bed with us and Caedmon sang a sweet Happy Birthday song to his daddy. We went to Grace Fellowship Church in Atmore on Sunday and enjoyed a message by Jason's brother Conrad. We decided to take a family picture outside since it was so beautiful, but Mr. Caedmon decided to throw a fit and refused to cooperate so he had a talk with daddy out back by the satsuma tree.
That evening was the big birthday party for Owen and Helen. Jason's family attended as well. Lots of kids and lots of noise, but lots of FUN! Once again, Mr. Caedmon needed another reminder to get some control and that he was not the entertainment for the evening. Joyce made a Wheel of Fortune cake for Owen because he loves to watch all the letters on that show, and Helen had a cute little cupcake. On Monday the guys took the kids to a park while the ladies went shopping downtown Atmore at the Economy Shop. It's always a fun place to look for treasures when we are down there. I bought a pair of pants for Caedmon, a shirt for me and a pair of jeans for Kevin. We stayed up late again that night talking then got up at 4am the next morning to head back to Indiana. Caedmon wasn't so happy to come home, he said "maybe we can come back to Alabama next weekend". When we reached the Indiana border and said we were in Indiana, he said "I don't want to go to Indiana, I want to go back to Owen's house" and even as we turned on the road that we live on, he pointed behind him and said "I want to go back that way to Owen's house". Kaiya started wailing the last four miles of the trip.
Thanks, Jason & Joyce, for a great time!

Kaiya's cow costume was a hand-me-down from her big brother. As soon as I put it on her, she let out a cute little "mooooo". For Caedmon's highway costume, I got the idea from a magazine. It was so easy and perfect for him because he loves playing with his car track at home. He loved it!
