2010 in Review

Well it seems like every time I blog, I'm apologizing for being such a bad blogger!!! Well, I am sorry, and I do wish I were better at it, but time just flies when you're having fun, and we sure are having fun with Kane these days!

14 Months is SUCH a fun and busy age! He's into everything!! No socket is safe around those wandering little fingers. We are totally baby proofed and ready to go. Kane's vocab. as of now includes: Mama, Daddy, Papa, Puppy, Puppy Dog, Good Dog, Ball, More, Hi & NO! He says them both in a out of context, but boy is he a chatter box. We have also found out that we have quite the "drama king" on our hands; everything is sooo devastating when something doesn't go exactly his way, poor thing! haha

We had a wonderful Holiday season kicked off by Beth and Jamie coming to visit for Thanksgiving. We all went to Gummie's where we had unseasonably warm weather, which was wonderful! We were stuffed to the gills, Kane loved the Turkey and Gummie's famous Mac & Cheese.

Christmas was celebrated a week early at my parents house since we were in Charleston for Christmas week. As most of you remember, last year Chip and I were VERY sick during Christmas, well this year we narrowly dodged that bullet again. All three of got caught the 24 stomach bug the week prior to Christmas. Luckily my parents came over to take care of Kane since we were soooo sick. Our trip to Charleston was a quick 6.5 hours there and a miserable 9 hours back. We had a great time visiting with the whole Schnabel clan, lots of food & fun. The day after Christmas we were greeted at home with 12 inches of snow! Kane loved looking out the window at the snow falling and the dogs trying to maneuver around in it!

Kane's most favorite Christmas gifts:

A 3 color glowing turtle that projects stars on the ceiling from Mary's parents, Dottie & Rick
A puzzle that spells "SCHNABEL" From Mimi

A "FurReal" Puppy from Santa, barks, sleeps, wags it's tail, he's in love!
A recordable book, read by Mimi & Papa, and Elmo too!

A bouncing Wahoo!! From Aunt Bip (Mary) & Uncle Pete

A Beautiful pop-up from Cocoa, a must have!
Also an interactive book from Cocoa

We were all very blessed this Christmas, and this entire year. 2010 started off with a lot of uncertainty. As we end the year, Kane has had so many new milestones, and I even started a new job in December! We rang in the new year at our house with Parker and Ashley, who at the stroke of midnight & 2011 became his fiance! They're planning a wedding for September 1st, 2012, and we couldn't be happier for them!!

We hope everyone enjoyed their holidays, and can't wait to share another year of our growing little family with you! Enjoy the Pics!
C, A, & K
