Ok, so Russell and I went to Chicago a while back. We went up one day and came back the next, so while it was not a long trip, it was a full trip, literally a very full belly trip. Russell has family in Chicago, we only got to see his aunt and one cousin, but it was fabulous!! His aunt is Italian and so, therefore so are his cousins. We really did not know if we would have time to go by and see them or not so we did not call too far in advance. Boy, once we called though, they got the ball rolling! First off, Aunt Josephine and her son Chuckie make their own sauce and freeze it. So when we talked to Chuckie the second time, he told us the sauce was thawing and they were going to make us Chicken Parmasan!! Boy was I excited. We went to check into our hotel and set off for there house which was about 45 mins. away. When we got there they had fried zucchini and eggplant waiting for us. Beyond Fabulous!! They then finished cooking the pasta and sauce and Chicken and beans and bread and I could go on and on and on! The pictures do not do it justice, but I wanted to share with everyone and tell you it is worth the trip to Chicago for the food!! Thanks again Aunt Josephine and Chuckie!!
Kaden has a new desk. It is not exactly new, but new to him. He calls it his 'treasure'. We got it at the flea market and he loves it. We really like it too. He puts all his colors and coloring books in it along with his puzzles, so that keeps that stuff off my floor!
Kaden went to the Licking Rodeo with Roy and Reta and he wanted to wear a "Cowboy Shirt". So we got out his cowboy shirt and cowboy hat and he was an official Cowboy! He was posing in the house and wanted me to take his picture so we headed outside and he posed like no tomorrow. He really liked the rodeo, he now ropes and ties cows in our living room every chance he gets.
Trey Miller, Kaden's friend had his 4th B-Day party Sunday at the park (the best place on earth for parties). He had a Monster Truck theme and the boys had a lot of fun. Kaden has decided that he wants a monster truck party for his birthday now, even if it is six months away. Happy Birthday Wednesday Trey!!!
