Baylor's memory quilt

Tonight we met Gamee and Grampee at Red Robin restaurant, and were surprised to see a gift for us!  Gamee & Grampee made us a quilt made with all of Baylor's bandanas and shirts to remember him. It is huge with all his things and even has iron on pictures of him growing up and sewed on words that we gave Gamee describing our baby a few weeks ago. Each of the words we described him as are below.
Charles- Active, Silly
Stacy- Loyal, Comfort
Cade- Pantry, Black
Caelin- Hugs, Kisses
The pictures of the quilt do not show how amazing it is. The quilt is perfect and he will be forever missed. Thank you Gamee and Grampee for yet again blessing us beyond words.  Caelin is sleeping with the quilt tonight and Cade has already said he gets it tomorrow night.  We miss you Bay-bay!
The other excitement for the evening came when Caelin decided to pull the fire alarm at the restaurant because she "didn't know what it was".  She immediately began crying and saying she didn't want to go to jail.  We made her apologize to the manager.  Talk about an embarrassing parenting moment!

Here is what Charles and I experienced & learned tonight with our littles:
1- While watching Diary of Whimpy kids movie, Caelin did my hair with 1,400 hair clips. It was painful to experience and look at. Not seeing a hair stylist in her future.
2- Cade thought it would be a good idea to spit a popcorn seed at his Mother. I guess arm pit farts are next?
3- Caelin asked if we took the chicken out of her cheese quesadillas. When I replied "yes", she bowed with praying hands and said "thank you for your service, namaste".
4- Cade looks like he is being tortured when a girl smiles at a boy during movies. Secretly I am sooooo happy!
5- In the middle of dinner, Caelin broke out in tears hugging Daddy and saying, "I miss you being my soccer Coach". She played soccer 2 years ago folks...2 years. She didn't even want to play half the time! How early do hormones start?!

Saturday surprises!

We had a fun day surprising the kids with the Lego Batman movie and Shoguns habachi grill. They were so excited to watch the cooking and Cade laughed so hard at the toys they used.  We love to spoil them.  To end the evening. we had Mommy/Daughter night while the boys head to a birthday party.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day from Bear and us! We made a countdown chain for Bear...11 days before we get to pick him up. But whose counting?  To celebrate Valentine's Day we ate heart shaped salmon patties at Gamee/Grampee's with Uncle Christopher, Aunt Heather, Andrew and Jacob.  We had a great time and Gamee even had brownies with heart shaped marshmallow cut outs on top.  It was a day of family and LOVE!

Seafood Heaven

The boys LOVE their Seafood and Cade cracks us up how much he loves Seafood, raw oysters, etc.  He is not at all scared at the way anything looks and has become quite the adventurous eater!  Caelin on the other hand is still the world's pickiest eater.  This was her trying the TINIEST bite of raw oyster on a cracker (with ketchup).  Her food groups are mainly cheese quesadillas, nuggets, and milk. Ha!

Donuts with Dad's at Ehrhardt

One of the coolest parts of Charles' job is being at the school Cade attends.  There is no greater feeling of safety knowing he is at an amazing school with talented teachers who love students.  So, on days like today, they get to spend time celebrating together.  Cade always beams with pride when Charles is near him and they get their "boy time".
