Welcoming our new baby girl!!

Well Addison Kate Fredericks made her grand arrival on 1-11-09 at 9:29am. The whole labor start to finish was only 10 1/2 hours and we were able to have a waterbirth which was amazing. A special thanks to my momma and Shannon and most of all my hubby who helped make all of that possible. And to my dad who was on Caden duty! You guys are the best and I love you!

She was 8lb 10oz (just 7 oz shy of her big brother at birth!) and was 20.5 inches long. She has dark hair, just like Caden did and well... we think she is pretty cute! So without further delay... Meet Addison!

41 weeks and counting!

Well, she has decided to stay put! She was due on 1-4-09 and we are still waiting. I guess she is following in her big brothers footsteps already (he was 12 days late). We are getting really anxious to meet her! This picture was taken last Sunday when I was 40 weeks.. We'll update the blog as soon as we can after she is born!

Snow, Snow and more Snow...

Making a snow angel!
It sure is cold, but I think he is having fun!

I admit, I am not a fan of living in a place where it snows a lot. I don't mind once or twice a year, and I like it to be gone within a couple of days. But we have gotten a LOT of snow this year, and it all fell right around christmas and it was beautiful. Talk about putting you in the christmas spirit! Caden had a lot of fun playing in it, we built an enormous snowman at my parents house and had such a magical evening creating our masterpiece, and taking a long walk through the neighborhood throwing snowballs and just taking it all in. It sure was beautiful! I only managed to snap a few pics:(

Christmas Morning!!

The aftermath.. I think he needs one more track!
In his new Christmas jammies! We always open a new pair on xmas eve:) These were a hit!
OK so this wasn't xmas morning, but I had to throw it in here! That's as close as he got to Santa again this year, he snagged the candy cane and ran!!

Caden was certainly excited for Christmas and we had so much fun. He sang Happy Birthday to Jesus all day long, it was so precious! He certainly got the hang of opening presents and quickly thought that all of them were for him. But all of the gifts were such a hit!

The best Christmas pagent ever!

Making the grand entrance shaking the bell!
Ready for the big night! Daddy did his hair (they have the same amount!! :)

Caden had his very first christmas performance with his preschool and it was HILARIOUS! Turns out we have quite a performer on our hands who wasn't the least bit hesitant to stand in front of 150 people and sing Jingle Bells! He was such a ham, waving to everyone, hollering at me to clap after every song, and growling at the kid standing next to him! It was priceless and we are already looking forward to next year!

Finding the perfect tree!

Found it! Now we get to cut it down!

Family picture:)

So I have been slacking so I have some catching up to do! We'll start with Christmas and the hunt for the perfect tree... Caden loved wandering through the tree farm, and he even got to write a letter to Santa. He had a blast helping Daddy cut it down and drag it to the road where the tractor was waiting... Here are a few pics!
