Boo at the Zoo and The Pumpkin Patch Too!

We had such a wonderful weekend. We met our friends Alison, Kevin and Raegan at Boo at the Zoo and had a great time. However, I can't wait until Kayden is old enough to really enjoy everything the zoo had to offer.
Then we went to Old Baker's Farm to the Pumpkin Patch. The weather was beautiful. We got to see animals, fields of cotton, corn, and of course, pumpkins. We roasted hot dogs and smores over a camp fire and spent time with family and friends. And like the zoo, I can't wait until Kayden can really enjoy all the activities at the farm and pick out her very own pumpkin!

Trip to the ER.

As much as I don't want to relive this event, Ashley Covin suggested that I blog it, "everyone else does." So, this is going to be my attempt to blog and get over it. After getting home from work yesterday I made a chicken casserole. I had finished cooking the casserole when I decided to open a can of lima beans to go with it. At the same time I picked Kayden up because Bob was coming through the door. My plan was to give her to her daddy so they could play and I would finish cooking. However, I thought, I'll just pour the beans in while I wait on Bob to wash his hands.

But, before I could even pour the beans into the pan Kayden swatted the can cutting her finger. Before I knew it blood was everywhere! Kayden was crying huge croc tears. Bob and I were freaking out and on our way to the E.R. After the resident and doctor and wonderful nurse Ashley Covin seen Kayden we left the emergency room with a clean finger and a bandaid. Oddly enough Kayden cried for a total of one minute though the entire experience and I have not stopped crying.

At the end of the day, my pride as a parent is hurt but, Kayden is great. A hurt finger isn't going to slow this vivacious little girl down

12 hours...Really!!!

Just to give you a run down on the last week. Kayden went to an awesome princess birthday party for Kylie last Saturday. The party included a huge princess moonwalk and a princess castle cake, too cool!!
And once again we had to clean out Kaydens' closet. Which is funny because Kayden loves to look in her closet. She watches so intently as I take every item out that she can no longer wear.
We also went to Jesis' house to watch the Auburn game. Yep, you heard me right...Auburn. Even though Bob, Kayden and I were the only Alabama fans there, we were on our best behavior. Go Commadors!
Now the best part. Last night I put Kayden down at her usual time 7:30ish. At around 3 a.m. she started to stir. I got up went to her room and put her paci in her mouth rolled her on her side and she went right back to sleep. I didn't her another sound from her until 7:45 this morning. Wow!!! This could be a fluke but, let's keep our fingers crossed.
