December 2006
 December 2006- What fun memories!
We moved into "Tara" around the first of December and spent the month making a house into a home.  We Decorated to the hilt, inside and out and had a really great month.  Nothing was as beautiful as the foyer of this home at Christmas time!  This is where so many great things were to come.  Such a great Ward, and so many truly great friends!  Our new Kitty- Kanobie is in the front next to Cayden, but he was not around for long, Daddy just could not handle animals in the house!  Here are all the kids on the 25th with- as always, way to much stuff!

September 2006
The end of August and the first of September were full of packing, stress, excitement, nervousness, and what ever else you may say.  We decided to move to Georgia to be closer to Nikki's family and for the adventure of it all!  What a great adventure it would become!  Here are the Boys, and Mia reversed in her car seat in the middle all packed up and ready to go on moving day.  As you can see, Daddy and Cayden have their "Blankets" in the back and are ready for anything!

This family picture is up at the cabin in the old tire swing, and the last time we would visit the cabin in a while as we had decided we were moving to Georgia.  So many great memories at the cabin as Nikki and I were dating and early on.  Cayden seems to be looking at the very old piece of wood holding all of us hoping it holds out!

March 2006
Cayden turned three on the 7th of March and we celebrated at his favorite restaurant, the Mayan with some of his favorite people- Grams, Pa and Justin. 
Cayden has always loved all kinds of vehicles and so a "DUMP" Cookie Cake only seemed natural.  He shocked all of us when he stood on a chair and shook his little Bonn Bonn to the music as the servers sang Happy Birthday.  Cayden is growing up so very quick and he is very inquisitive and very observant (just like his Daddy)!

February 2006
Cayden and Daddy sledding in Cotton Wood Canyon.  Brenner loved the snow and everything to do with it.  Cayden on the other hand only wanted to eat it.

Lots of snow this year, it just kept coming.
Here is Brenner in front of one of the two snowmen that he helped Daddy build in the front yard.
Keep the walks shoveled!
