Homeless at Christmas

Well, the house we are planning to buy still hasn't closed and we need to be out of the house we are living in this weekend. So we are homeless for the holidays. Boo Hoo! We are going to be moving in with my parents for a while until this all works out so I guess we aren't really homeless but it feels like we are very unsettled. Please be praying that we still can get the house and that we can close soon as soon as possible.

Mornings at the Kaufmans!

Our mornings usually start at 7:00 around here which isn't too bad I must say. Kendall loves to snuggle with Daddy when he is up. He usually is the one who gets to sleep in since I have to feed the baby anyways. So he is the lucky one who gets to sleep in. Then he usually transfers to the couch with Kendall.

Kendall's 2nd Birthday

We still can't believe that Kendall is 2 years old now. These two years have just flown by. She is such a smart girl. She knows all her colors, she can do some harder puzzles, she sings all her nursery rhymes and sunday school songs, and is even wanting to get herself dressed. Sometime she comes out with her pants on backwards but she gets them on. Kendall wanted a Mickey Mouse cake for her birthday. She was so excited to blow out the candles that she blew them out as soon as we started the song. And then we had to sing the song 4 times so she could do it again. It was a really great party. Thanks to everyone who came and shared in her special day.

Trevor in Eyeliner!!

I know that this looks so funny but I'll post the whole picture later when I get it. At Rush Hour tonight which is our High School program at the Hub they had a pirate night and Trevor had the best Jack Sparrow costume I have ever seen. The great thing about it is that he put it all together in parts and didn't just buy a already made pirate costume. This is afterwards when he thought that he looked mean and scary with the eyeliner and gotee still on. He definitely looks more like a rock star that's for sure.

Thanksgiving Day

I forgot my camera when we went to my parents house for dinner but I did get a picture of Kendall watching the Thanksgiving Day Parade that morning. She loves parades and was loving all the characters, balloons, singing and dancing. She is definitely going to be a performer of some sort when she is older. Camden is also smiling more and more and starting to coo and make lots of noises. I love watching them go through all these life stages. He is such a blessing.

Snuggle Time

I set Camden into Kendall's crib the other night while I was tucking her in and praying with her. The only problem was that she didn't want me to take him out. She wanted to sleep with him. I told her that maybe when they were older that they could snuggle together but that he was still too little. She understood but it was so sweet that she wanted to snuggle with him. She does so well with him. I am so very proud of her!

Happy Halloween

Well we made it through another Halloween night now with two kids to dress up and take out. Kendall all week was saying "no Nemo" so we didn't think we would be able to get her to put on her Little Nemo costume but we kept telling her that if she wanted to go and get candy then she needed to wear it. After a few houses she was loving every minute of it and wanting people to give her more than one piece of candy. Camden slept most of the time but he was in his little pumpkin pajamas. I was holding his little basket so that I could still get some candy to eat! We also carved some pumpkins at the last minute this afternoon while Trevor and I were both home all day with the kids. Trevor did one with the stem as the nose which turned out really cute. Hope you all had fun as well.

Great Pumpkin Farm!

While Grandma and Grandpa were here we went up to the Great Pumpkin Farm which was pretty fun. The only thing was that it was really windy and that made it kind of cold so we couldn't really take Camden out for any pictures but here are a few from our visit. There are two that look the same but one is from last year and one is from this year. It measures how big they were at the Pumpkin Farm from year to year. We'll have to start Camden next year.

More from our visit with Trevor's parents...

Trevor's mom and dad left yesterday to go back to Wisconsin. It was fun to have them here all week to help with the kiddos. It was a little vacation for us. Here are some more pictures of our week. They brought them some Green Bay Packer outfits so we had to get a picture with them all in their football gear! Also, Grandma took a great picture of Camden so Trevor made it into a black and white and did a little in photoshop to make it look cool. I think it's a great picture.

Visit from Grandpa and Grandma Kaufman!

Trevor's parents are here this week. They haven't seen us since last Christmas and it's the first time they are seeing Camden. We are having a great time with them. They are loving the kids all up and spoiling them with presents since they don't get to all the time. We'll be going to see them in Wisconsin for Easter this spring so it won't be such a long stretch of time to see them again. Here are some of the pictures from our week so far.

Apple Picking!

We went apple picking today with friends from church. It was 84 degrees outside today so it sure didn't feel like apple picking weather but we went anyways. It was a lot of fun however a lot of the trees were bare already probably for 2 reasons. One, we had like no rain this summer so they said their crop was really low this year. Secondly, because we went a little later than we normally do in the fall so we only had a few types to choose from. Kendall had fun picking them off the trees and then trying to eat them all. We also cut some grapes off the vines and she ate a ton of those sitting in the wagon. Down the street from the apple orchard they had a giant pumpkin farm so we stopped to check them out. The pumpkins in the picture were huge and really expensive so we just looked around. I love the Fall!

Big Sister Kendall

Kendall likes to read books to her little brother. I don't have the heart to tell her that he has no clue what she's saying. Actually neither do I half the time since she mostly babbles and throws a few words in here and there. But it is still cute to say the least. I can't wait to see how they interact as they get older. It will be fun to watch and I am sure I'll be breaking up some fights over toys before I know it.

Camden's First Bath

Here are some pictures of Camden's first bath a few days ago. He likes the water a lot just like Kendall does. Just be praying for him. He's really gassy and spits up a lot like Kendall did and seems like he is in pain. I think it might be acid refllux. Just pray that we figure it out soon so that he will be a happier baby soon.

Tree Climber!

Trevor put Kendall in the tree in front of our house. She loved it and was smiling as big as can be as you can see from the picture below. We are still house hunting and looking for the perfect house for us. Please be praying that we find something soon. We just want to be settled and have a place where our family can grow and call home.

Mommy's Little Helper

We had a weight check at the doctors today for the baby and he is doing well. He isn't quite back up to birth weight but real close so they are happy with that. Kendall is still loving being a big sister most of the time. She just doesn't understand why I can't carry her a lot yet but I can carry him. It's hard to explain surgery to a 2 year old. Here is a picture of her helping put his binky back in his mouth (even though I don't think he is going to use them since he spits them out a lot).

One week old!

Well we have survived our first week with two kids. We are needless to say exhausted and in need of some sleep but other than that we are making it by. Kendall is doing well with her new brother taking over the house. She so far is just in awe of him but I'm sure that will change and they will be fighting over stuff before we know it. Here are some new pictures to enjoy. Some of them are of Trevor's new motorcycle that he just got and one of Kendall wearing his new riding goggles for the bike.
