Christmas 09

Caden & Riley at Disney on Ice this year..

Long Time!

Well, obviously it has been a long, long time since I have posted on this blog. Facebook has taken over and I usually put my pictures and funny things over there. My how things have changed. I think since our last post, we have moved twice, and the kids are so much bigger! Caden, now in first grade had to change schools due to the move and is loving his new class. He has such great kids in his class. He has a couple of really good friends and has also let us know he has a girlfriend! He is doing very well academically and even won an award for most improved in his class. He still loves football although we are getting ready for baseball and he really wants to try hockey. We will have to see about that! His current obsession is the Wii, loves Mario Kart & Super Mario brothers. I can't believe he is getting ready to turn 7! He has decided he wants to have some buddies over for a sleep over so should be interesting in the house with 5 seven year olds up all night! I am sure Riley will be right in the middle of it all! Riley is now 5, she had a dinosaur birthday party for her 5th. I tried to get her to do a girlie party with all girls but said she had some good friend who were boys and wanted to invite them so we did! She loves dinosaurs, honestly she knows more about them than I do! She is still in speech, although down to once a week and has come so far! We just registered her for kindergarden and honestly...when did she grow up? She loves her brothers and gets so heartbroken when Caden doesn't show his affection for her like he used to (he says he is too embarrassed to tell her he loves her now) and broke down when he told her she wasn't his valentine this year! Too cute..she is so smart just doesn't always like to do what she is told. Early on we knew she was her own person and I truely love that about her! Mason is 2.5 now..finally starting to talk and show is personality. He is a mama's boy, which now that the older two are growing up makes me so happy! He loves to snuggle and his favorite things are trucks, Rocket from little einsteins and Dora the explorer (he just discovered her!). He tried to keep up with Caden but mostly hangs out with Riley, who is good to him. This year he is a little traveling man, getting rushed from place to place due to the kids activites but he is good about it.We just started a gymnastics class (mommy & me type thing) which he LOVES. It is so nice to be with him one on one and you can tell he really enjoys having mommy all to hisself as well! He is registered for preschool (two days a week) and so now all three of my "babies" will be in school come fall....I get so emotional (overly so) about all this. I know this is the beginning of one chapter but looking forward to seeing them become more and more independant and to see what they do with that independance! I have three great kids!
