Christmas Eve

This is the First Christmas since I was a kid that I am super excited. Mostly I just can't wait to see the look on Kayl's face when he wakes up and finds all these neat toys under the tree. Tomorrow is going to be awesome!!

Christmas Letter

I've been busy lately and haven't really thought about this letter. Which is so much different than last year. I try my best to sum up the year.

January started our year with not much change. We lived in an apartment with 7 cats and Kayl. We both were working extremely hard and Kayl was starting to stand a little on his own.
February came and went with not much change. Kayl took his first actual step in March. We got really excited and hoped that he would start walking. Also in March our family became a forever family. It took us three years and we are now proud to say that we have been sealed for time and all eternity.
April flew by so fast that in two days we found an apartment to move into and we were in May 1.
We were really sad to see our cats go to the shelter but for cheaper rent we had to make some sacrifices.

June and July saw Todd working 60 hour weeks while my job slowed down to 10 hours weeks. Kayl finally was running all over the house and we couldn't go one day without Spongebob playing. August and September went by with no problems. Come October we had our Fair share of hard time. First Kayl's tooth broke and we discovered he needed surgery. It was all ready when we found out that he is not covered on our dental insurance. We put it on hold for now.
I got fired from my job three days before Kayl's birthday.
Kayl turned two with no problem and a huge party.

In November our thought turned to the Army. We went to the recruiter and everything, but when it came time to spend the night apart, we couldn't do it. Instead, Todd went out and got himself a new job which starts on January 1. We also celebrated our 3 year anniversary on the 18th of November. I'm still on the job prowl and Kayl is still learning to talk. We are doing great and hope to remain so for years to come.

Thanks for reading

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Katharine, Todd and Kayl Tangreen

Kayl's first snowman

We decided to have Kayl build his first snowman. Honestly, Todd and I did most the building, Kayl did the tantrum throwing and crying. When it was done he was a little happier. The minute we brought him in the house he went down for a nap. This is the finished product!!!

Chair Thief

This is what happens when I leave my chair for two minutes to warm up a bowl of soup.
Kayl is such a thief lately. He takes everything. My shoes seem to end up in his room at least twice a day. He has also become the biggest cuddler known to mankind. All he wants to do is lay on me.

The View from my Door this morning

I had to take Todd to work this morning and when I opened the door I saw a sight that I really didn't want to see. I hate driving in snow and Todd knows it.
