So yes, I have finally posted more pictures. I am getting horrible about it because I really need to copy my memory card on a CD (it's getting really full, which in turn takes forever to download on to the computer). Anyway, as you can see both of my boys are getting big. Kaden is getting better and better at being a big brother. Brody just loves Kaden. When he sees Kaden, he just stares at him, he is really fascinated with Kaden (who wouldn't be, he's the coolest kid EVER : )).
The house is coming along. It won't be long until we can move in. I am getting very excited. I just can not wait for them to get all of the sheet rock up so I can paint (probably about the only thing I can actually help with and not screw up!!!). I also accepted a new job this last week. I actually wasn't looking for one, but it came at good timing. I was just getting burnt out at my old job. I will be a toddler teacher at a daycare. I actually can bring Brody there, but as of this time he is on the waiting list. The only "problem" is the pay decrease. I am definitely going to have to learn to be a little more frugal.
This last week I spoke with the elementary school principal where Kaden will be attending. I am very excited about it and very optimistic. She seemed very accomodating and excited to have Kaden there (as we all know it shouldn't be any different!). Well, tonight the school had a carnival (inside of course) and we took Kaden. He had a good time, but seemed more interested in checking out the classrooms then playing the games. They had one room set up as a dance room. The high school's dance team was there teaching kids how to do the electric slide. At the time, Kaden was the only kid in there and he had about 5 high school girls to himself. They were really good with him and as you have probably seen in previous posts he loved the dancing. He may not of danced the electric slide, but he did show his moves...and man can he move :). We had a good time.
Well, that is about all that has been going on. I hope everyone who got snow (like us) is keeping safe.
March 31st is Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Day. Please wear turquoise this day for Kaden and all of the other's who have been diagnoised with this birth defect.
Jan. 31, 2008 to May 7, 2008 You are in our hearts and will be forever. We love you baby girl and miss you so much.
Our Big Boy
We love you bubby.

Special Angel In Heaven
There's a special Angel in Heaven that is a part of me. It is not where I wanted her but where God wanted her to be.
She was here but just a moment like a night time shooting star. And though she is in Heaven she isn't very far.
She touched the heart of many like only an Angel can do. I would've held her every minute if the end I only knew.
So I send this special message to the Heaven up above. Please take care of my Angel and send her all my love. -Author unknown
A WALK TO REMEMBER
I walk to remember the steps you'll never take. I carry you with me as I firmly plant my feet. Our trek started long ago, before my belly swelled. You were a love that grew-like butterfly wings that beat. Your gentle flutters than became kicks upon which I would dwell. And I would talk to you, sweet babe, about the world you soon would meet. The sun always shown upon us then-when you were in my womb. And I was eager to show you the world that would have been your home. How you'd have loved the sun shining-blue skies without a cloud. The autumn leaves turning-the snow falling all around. The flowers in the summer,would have filled your eyes with smiles. And the rain that might have fallen would have caused you great surprise. You would have traveled far with me-holding me by the hand. And I'd have shown you all I could-more than I can imagine. You hold my heart tightly now, as thought we're holding hands. How far we've traveled, little one-and my life with you has been sweet. For I carry you in my heart as I firmly plant my feet.
I have four wonderful, beautiful children. Three are here on earth with us, the other received her wings and is now in Heaven watching over us. I take pride in my children, they are the strongest people I have ever met. I have been blessed to be a part of their lives. I am TRULY grateful that God chose my husband and I to love these children. I have never known a greater love than a mommy's love.
THE CHOSEN ONES I had a dream the other night. It came to me so clear. I stood before the throne of God,afraid to come too near. God said to me, "I hear your prayers. There are answers you can't find. I brought you here to talk to me and help to ease your mind. "I said,"Well, yes, God, I am upset...About my special one. This punishment is awfully harsh...Whatever have I done?" God looked at me and shook his head, He said, "My Dear, you've got it wrong. I sent this special child to you because you are so strong. I searched and searched to try and find someone with a love so rare. Parents so unselfish they could give him that special care. I try to save my special gifts,like those you're speaking of,for a special kind of parents I call the 'Chosen Ones. 'Of all the ones to choose from,I know I've got it done...Parents who deserve my best,an honor you have won." -Unknown
