The year started off pretty uneventful. Apparently we took most of January and February to recuperate from the holidays and things finally started to get exciting again when we got a nice snow the end of February and Jada experienced snow for the first time. As you can see, she was cold; could hardly move and really didn't enjoy it at all.
Jada's first snow experience was our biggest highlight until May. (We live a pretty exciting life.) In May, Kaiden graduated from Stepping Stones Preschool.

In June Kaiden got to see Mater face-to-face. That's a big deal people.
Dan and I took a trip to Florida in June while the kids stayed with grandma and grandpa. We hung out at the pool and the beach and did a lot of relaxing.
June was also the month Jada officially turned into a girly-girl.
Kaiden experienced his first tractor pull in July. Kaiden and his dad went with a couple of his friends and their dad. And though the picture doesn't appear as such, Kaiden did actually really enjoy it.
In August we visited the Iowa State Fair with some friends. It was the kids' first Iowa State Fair. We did a lot of walking and maneuvering with the stroller.

He also turned five!
Jada pulled a barstool over onto herself and fractured her toe.
And she also got her first haircut. She was such a big girl. Climbed right up on the chair and sat so nicely. She even got some candy for being such a big girl.
And she turned two!
Kaiden received the Kinsey Kid of Character Award at school. I was so proud of my baby.
We finished our bathroom remodel after about half a year.
And here we are at the end of another year.
