Kayl lost a Lego!!

So he thought that he would go after it.

He has a Spiderman fold out couch in his room and he threw the Lego behind it so he crawled over to the couch and tried to climb over it but got stuck half way.

He didn't even care. He had the Lego and he was content just to lay like that for a while.

I thought you would enjoy his play time fun.

My "Favorite" Christmas Tradition

I'm Always Sick On Christmas!!!

It's Christmas time in the Tangreen House!!

As everyone knows, today was Christmas. We had a lot more presents than we expected. Kayl, of course had the most. Todd filmed him opening all of his presents, but after he opened his first one I took it away after a few seconds after he got a good look at it and he immediatly started to cry. That is why there is a little part of the video of him crying. He got over it when we opened a few more. Kayl got Duplos, A Noah's Ark set, A Doctors kit, A bunch of new clothes, A bunch of Musical toys, and a customized box of block. Thank you Mom, Dad, Emily, Grandma, and Grandpa for making this a successful Christmas.

Picture Randomness

I was going through some pictures and I thought that this was the funniest picture ever. Kayl was just learning how to copy us and Todd made a funny face, so Kayl decided to try it too. I just love this picture.

Kayl's second haircut!!

Todd and Kayl really needed a haircut so I took them to get one. Kayl looks so handsom. I was going to show him off to my family tonight at my cousins wedding reception but the snow is just way to bad so we decided not to go. So, here are the lovely pictures of before and after.

We decided to go sledding today since Todd had the day off. Problem was, we didn't have a sled. So, we drove to my parents house. We didn't quite make it up the hill, I ended up hiking to get to the door. I grabbed a sled and then went to the car. Kayl was getting a little antsy so our trip didn't last to long but it was still fun.

Kayl's first snow day!!

Todd got a snow day today so we decided to bundle Kayl up and take him to the backyard to play. He has seen snow before but this was his first time ever playing in it. He had a lot of fun doing it.

The Mall Playground

Todd and I love to take Kayl to the mall just so we can walk around and make him tired. They have this new play place set up by the Mervyns that is going out if business. Kayl loves to explore the dinosaur, I think that it is favorite part.

It's begining to look a lot like Christmas!!

I'm excited for Christmas, just not the snow. Since it has snowed and since Emily got mad at me, I decided to finally set up our tree. I'm also excited because there are actual presents under the tree.

We have had a few problems with the tree. We have to yell at the cats because they like to try and jump up the tree. Kayl has also discovered how much he likes the lights on the tree. I decided that I need to get one of those baby gates that is round so I can protect the tree and the presents. He keeps trying to unwrap his presents early. At least he can't reach the stockings quite yet.

Our house is so Christmasy, we have a strand of lights in every single room and on the railing leading down to our apartment. This time of year is my favorite because of all the beautiful lights, the music, the movies, my moms train, and the family togetherness.

Our Christmas Letter

The Tangreen Report

I don’t have the great poetic writing experience that my dad does. I hope this letter is okay for everyone.
We started out this January as happy as could be. Kayl was 3 months and I was getting into the motherhood mode.

We had just had our first litter of kittens as well and Kayl just loved them.
Todd was enjoying his job as he was been moving up in the company.
As the months moved on we came into March.
Todd and I both share a birthday in March, so we took Kayl to Wingers and enjoyed a nice meal as a family.
As we came into May we were settling into your new apartment when my Dad e-mailed me and said that my Grandparents were coming home from their mission. We took a trip up to the airport to see them home.

Kayl was also so excited to see his cousin Rachel.

As we rolled into July we realized that we needed to find a new apartment fast. I looked and I looked for weeks and nothing was working. Then on the last day of my search I found the perfect place and we were able to move in that day.
By this time we were already on our second litter of kittens.
August and September came and went without many problems or fun.
We came to October and I wanted to travel back in time. My baby was growing up and I wanted it to stop. To no avail, Kayl turned one and I love every minute of him.

We took Kayl trick-or-treating for the first time that month. We also took him to the zoo for his birthday

In November, Todd and I juggled two Thanksgivings. We went to his Grandparents as well as my Parents. We ate until we couldn’t eat anymore.
We have had our share of misfortune and sadness. I found out about my high allergy to onions, one of our kittens from our second litter passed away, and we had to take Kayl to the hospital once for a really high fever.

Our life isn’t perfect but we make the best of it.
Wishing Everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

If you would like a full copy of the letter with all the pictures in it. Just leave me your e-mail and I'll send on too you.

Kayl's new way of eating!!

Kayl has discovered a new way to feed himself. I thought it was pretty funny because when I was little I used to a lot of weird things with my feet.

The Stairs

Kayl has never been around stairs but when we were at my parents house he learned to climb up them all by himself. It was so cool.


This year we juggled two Thanksgivings that were at the same time. It was really fun to be able to see Todd's family and my family. Kayl had so much fun!! We were able to talk to Andrew and Nancy in Eygpt. We lost track of time at my parents house and didn't come home til 6 pm. We had a great time. Thank you Mom and Dad for inviting us.

Oh No!!

I think I've begun feeding an addiction.

See I love nutella and I have now discovered that Kayl loves it too. He was whining because he was hungry and I had the Nutella out because I was eating it by spoonfulls. (I know.. Unhealthy but so good) I decided to give Kayla baby spoon with a bit on it. Boy did he love that!!
