All these presents...

Christmas was a lot of fun, while Kasen still doesn't get the Christmas thing for sure she is getting better about presents.  Christmas eve she got some gifts from friends of ours John and Kat, she has a nice new shopping cart and blocks which she loves putting into the shopping cart.  On Christmas there wasn't much opening; we got her a little kitchen and because of size didn't wrap it.  That was basically all she wanted to play with all morning so the rest of the opening of presents was done by us.  Here is a little video of her playing with her new toys.

Later that day we went over to our friends James and Rebecca and their son Lucas's.  We had a great dinner and the kids played with the gifts "they" got each other.  Here are a couple photos

Helping and getting help with presents, thanks Rebecca
After dinner we had a little jam session before heading home

 Hope you all enjoy the pictures and videos, I am sure next year she will be much more into the opening of presents (possibly even by her birthday).

Here comes Santa Clause

It has been a while since we last blogged. The little one is keeping us busy, there was family in town for Thanksgiving, and Karl keeps a busy travel schedule for work. Kasen even had a little modeling job for a company called Zulily. We'll do a blog soon and put some pictures up. Hopefully some of you saw here on the site.

We have been getting ready for the holidays. The house is light up Griswold style. The Christmas tree is up and decorated. Kasen's favorite thing ia to point out ornaments as we ask for them.

 The other day Santa visited her Aunt Karen and Uncle Scott's house. It was fun for her cousin Phaedra but Kasen was not all that confortable with a guy dressed in red and a big white beard. Here is her trying to get away while Mom does the best she can to get a quality photo.

Hope everyone has a happy holiday and a good new year.
