Our Little Santa

Much to the surprise of our friends and family, we dressed Kaden up as a little Santa for his Christmas picture.  Yes, I know... we don't believe in Santa, but I just couldn't resist.  Our kids will know that there is no Santa and probably make a few little ones cry in preschool over it.  However, we firmly believe that Christ is the center of Christmas, and that should be the focus.  Anyways, we're enjoying the Christmas season over here, and feel the joy that comes from Christ's birth.  So far Kaden's first Christmas season is great.  We'll see how the 12 hour drive to NJ goes next week! :)

Last night I officially graduated with my Master's Degree in Reading from Grand Valley State University.  It felt so good to be done, although definitely not quite as exciting when I graduated from Calvin College with my undergrad.  It was great to celebrate this accomplishment, and I'm glad I'm done....for now.... :)

Kaden was so cute on Thanksgiving day.  We had such a nice, relaxing day spent with family.  When reflecting back over the year, we couldn't help but be thankful for the amazing blessings he's given us- especially our precious baby boy!  God is good!

Eating cereal

Kaden has begun his quest of eating cereal.  I must say he's  not quite sure what to think of it yet.  Most of the time the cereal comes right back out, or he laughs and babbles and it flies everywhere.  I'm sure he'll get the hang of it eventually!

Telling our story

Hi everyone! Well, we decided to join the rest of the world and open up our doors to you via the wonderful world of the web. This blog was started to keep you updated on what's going on in our lives and watch our precious boy Kaden grow up (much too quickly!). Enjoy!
