Russell and I have been married 8 years, have a 4 year old son, I work as a Radiologic Technologist, Russ is a Funeral Director and Embalmer. We enjoy our farm and raising cattle, reading, and playing with our son. We like to take trips, although not nearly as often as I'd like. We try to follow God and serve him and are always learning new parts of our faith.
We went to the state fair a few weekends ago. It was soooo hot! Kaden still had fun of course! We went to the fair on Friday and stayed at mom and dad's trailer at the lake, so we could go do lake stuff on Saturday. We played games at the strip and then went out on Dad's boat to fish. We had a good mini-vacation!
Kaden is playing soccer. I really don't know how much he likes it, but he says he does. He likes to swing his arms alot.Kaden is number 11. Russ is helping coach. His games are on Mondays at 6:15 if anyone wants to attend. He is starting t-ball after soccer is over, so I guess our summer is going to be full, before it even starts!
Here is a little preview of Kaden's 4th b-day pics. We woke up this morning and Kaden was in a good mood, so we moved the furniture out of the way, and took some pics. I have been meaning to take him to someone and get his pics made but with the surgery and our schedule being crazy lately, it hasn't happened yet. So before he turns 5, maybe we will get some real ones taken, but till then, these will have to do. Hope you like them.
On a side note, Kaden has been feeling much better. He is talking a lot more and running around like a wild man. He isn't whining near as much now (thank goodness)!
As most of you know, Kaden had his tonsils and adenoids taken out and tubes put in his ears Friday. He is doing a little better today, he ate some jello last night and has drank a little juice today. Yesterday was pretty painful for him and it was really hard to get his medicine in him. We had to resort to suppositories one time. He is taking his meds today. he is having a lot of ear pain, not from the tubes but from the referred pain of his tonsilectomy. The Dr. said it exposed nerve ending and the pain is felt in the ears. I really wish I could make it better, but is really the only thing that will help. He still won't talk except a few words a day, so it has been unusually quiet around here. Thanks to everyone for the calls and prayers! The new puppy seems to help him, they cuddle together and watch movies. He has a deer hunting game that hooks to the TV and he has been killing a lot of deer! I will be home with him until Thursday and after that I am not sure what our schedule will be like. Come over and see him, he likes the company and attention he is getting!!
We had Kaden's party on Jan. 30th, 2009 at Northside Baptist Church. A lot of people could not make it due to the snow we got the night before, but we still had a good time. Kaden wanted a dog party, so the kids got to eat from dog bowls and make dogtags. They hit a pinata at the end. We had a good time. Can't believe he is 4 already!!
