2009 is off to a great start! Trent’s mom and dad, along with his brother, Uncle Thad (“Fad” as Brayden calls him) came down from DC to visit us. We had an absolutely wonderful time with them and Brayden misses her uncle dearly! While they were here we saw Polar Express in 3D and Miss B wanted nothing to do with her glasses until the last five minutes. Go figure. We went to Roman’s first birthday party and had a great time there as well. I left for Phoenix on a business trip for a few days and then turned right around and we all flew to Louisville, KY to see extended family on my mom’s side. We hadn’t been there in two years and it was long overdue. I have 15 cousins (my mom is one of six kids) and once you add spouses in there, the parties get pretty large and rowdy. They know how to have a good time. The visit was amazing and I love them all dearly! We even hung out with my 93-year old grandma and 83-year old grandpa (yes, she robbed the cradle!). Brayden also started another gym class, which she absolutely loves and looks forward to all week. There is a trampoline, slides, and a ball pit, among many things. In addition, Miss B got her first haircut! She wasn’t too happy at first (new environment), but once she sat on my lap, she calmed down. We only trimmed off about two inches, but it looks so much better! Of course, we kept the hair and I was a bit sad since those were the hairs she was born with. Another sign our little girl is growing up. Boo hiss.
Brayden: “We need hold hands and close eyes. But, I not say hey man.”
