Michael and Jonathon worked night and day on the basement for so long and now.... it is finished. Cris put up with her house being torn apart, two grumpy men working in her basement and much more I am sure. Congratulation to all how put effort and work into the project.
To have a little fun I set up a ribbon ceremony. Here are some pictures...

Michael, Cris, and Jonathon all cut the yellow ribbon at the same time. I should have gotten a better picture.

It's Christmas morning!!! Oh, wait, the basement is finished, even better :)

I teased Jonathon that the first night we would watch him fall asleep in his new bedroom. I guess I was not joking.

Michael was soo tired after working so hard he just fell asleep. Jonathon was not amused :)

I enjoy Halloween. Maybe it's because I like chocolate so much or that when I was a child I had wonderful memories going trick or treating. I don't know why, but I think it's one of my favorite holiday's. Anyways, one of the things I love to do is carve pumpkins.

These were the best pumpkins Smiths had to offer (I would know, we looked at almost every single one of them)

This year Kaden got into it and even put his hand in the pumpkin. Emma is still too much of a "princess" too get her hands dirty.

Daddy had to help

She did a good job

Kaden made his design all by himself!

Halloween day is pretty fun too. My parents came down to see there grandkids go trick or treating. I enjoyed that, and it was Michael's first time with the kids on Halloween.

Little Devil


Scary skeleton guy with devil and batman ready to get some candy

Kaden is 4 years old!!!!

We had so much fun at Kaden's Cowboy and Indian birthday party. Cousins, Grandma's and Grandpa's, aunt and uncle's were all apart of this wonderful time. I had to drop a tear or two knowing that my "little man" is growing up. Here are some pictures to recap...

Kaden only likes the frosting and ice cream when it comes to cakes so I thought we'd get him a Ice cream cake. IT WAS SOO GOOD!

We broke a pinata

Indian chief MOM read some cowboy stories by the fire

Ready to ride some horses and lasso some cow's!

Sheriff Kaden was the star of the day!
