Christmas Time

I love Christmas time! We have been keeping ourselves busy and trying to stay warm. Here are some pics of what we have been up to this month.

I think boys in hats are just adorable so I finally found a little beanie for Cade. It's a tad to big so we roll the bottom but doesn't he look so cute. And you can see the Christmas tie I bought Adam.

Here is Cade in his first snow!
In Bellevue they have this Christmas drumming thing. This one street is covered in lights and then these people come out dressed as toy soldiers with drums and drum along to Christmas music. They also have fake snow fall during the performance. Although the night we went it really did snow.

Here we are at the ward Christmas party. I wanted a picture because I finally looked decent.

Cade got his picture taken with Santa. He didn't really care. But of course the camera comes out and we can't get him to smile. At least we kind of got him to look.

Another evening Redmond City Hall lights a Christmas tree and puts lights all along a trail. So we bundled up and went walking along the trail. Don't you love Cades elf shoes.

So Adam's work had their Christmas party at the Space Needle. We had never been up it so it was really fun. They had nice music, okay food, but really good desserts. It was also our first real date without Cade. Thanks April for watching him. Here is the view from the top.

Here we are all dressed up and enjoying the music.
We hope everyones Holiday season has been enjoyable thus far. On wed. we are off to Houston to be with my family for Christmas!

I can't believe how time flies. Cade is now 3 months old and makes everyday so fun. Cade now smiles, laughs/shrieks with delight, is getting better at holding up his head and can roll over with a little help. He loves to look at his hands and can tell moms voice from everyone elses. He has had his first cold and shots been on an airplane, experienced his first holdiays and meet many family and friends. He has been to movies, a baseball game, the aquarime, parks, and many other outtings. He is a delight in our family and has the most wonderful personality and disposition. His smile is sure to make anyone melt.

Here Cade is about 2 days old. My how they grow so fast.

Cade now loves to pull his blankets up to face. Sometimes he gets them stuck but he sure seems to love it.

He loves to play possum! He has the best smile, even in his sleep

Who could resist that big grin and dimples?

He is such a big boy. Working on sitting up, rolling over, and holding his head up all on his own.


We went to Louisiana for Thanksgiving. We first went to Adams parents house and then went to some cabins for a couple of days. Cade got to meet his grams and granddad for the first time along with many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Here is Cade sleeping. Almost always with those arms up.

The adults talking.
Cade in his Thanksgiving outfit. Unfortunately Cade caught a horrible cold and I ended up throwing up on Thanksgiving so we spent most of the day sleeping in our cabin.

So Cade and I went to Houston for a couple of days before we met Adam at the airport to go to Louisiana for Thanksgiving. It was a good visit but Alivia was sick and Cade and I ended up getting it. We enjoyed the warmer weather and being with family.
Here is Uncle Chad and Cade resting. So tired and so cute!

Cade and Uncle Tate finally got to meet. They will be good friends.Grandma enjoying her grand babies. I don't know how she is going to fit two more on that lap.So we went to a Birthday party and my mom and I thought it would be cute for Cade to wear a party hat. Apparently Cade disagreed. I thought it was so sad and so cute.

California 2

During our visit to California we went to the Golden Gate bridge, Alcatrez, and Ghirardelli square, Fisherman's Wharf. We also met up with another Megan. We had lots of fun and we were sad to leave our friends and the warm weather.Here we are on the Golden Gate Bridge

Adam had to go to CA for work so Cade and I convinced him that we also needed to go. So from Wed to Sunday of last week we were in Sunny Northern CA. We loved the sun and warm weather.

Cade did amazing on the plane ride there and back.

We were able to spend some time with our good friend Meghan. She took us to the beach and the mall. Along with some other fun places.
Cade enjoyed the beach but thought the water was a little too cold.Meghan hanging out with Cade at the beach.Dad and Cade resting in the hotel. Good thing for King Sized beds.

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!
Adams office does a trick or treat inside so we dressed Cade up and took him around. Of course Adam collected the candy for Cade. Cade was a very good sport. I finally got a pretty good picture of Cade smiling. He has the best personality. He is so happy, loves to smile, and has started his own little laugh and excited squeal. It is amazing to watch him learn and how excited he gets just to sit and talk to us.
Here is our little lion. We tried to get him to roar at people. No roaring but we did get some cooing.

His little tail!

Watching the tricker treaters at Microsoft.

We were lucky enough to have my parents and my sister Ariel come to visit and even more lucky to have them come at the same time. Sadly Ariel and my dad were only here for a short while but we are so glad they came. My mom gets to stay and hangout for a while longer and we are really glad. They all finally got to see Cade for the first time. Cade loved it! He was smiling and talking to all of them. We were able to cram lots of fun things into one day. We went to Snoqualmie Falls, the waterfront and the Bellevue mall. We can't wait to see more family and to have more visitors.


On Sunday Cade had his baby blessing. We were lucky enough to have family. Adams brother and his family were able to come. Plus my parents were able to come into town from Switzerland. It was a very special day and Adam did a wonderful job.

My parents even brought a special outfit from Switzerland for Cade to be blessed in. We made it all the way to after the pictures before he got spit up on it.

Dressing up!

I love having a baby boy!

And I just love dressing him up. I thought dressing up a girl would be more fun but you really can't beat dressing a baby boy up like a little man. So here are some pics of my little man! I don't think he could get any cuter.
