Christmas 2010

This was Caden’s 2nd Christmas.  It’s amazing how much Caden has grown since last Christmas.  He is such a blessing and one of the greatest gifts God has given us.  Caden’s too young to understand all that Christmas entails but we pray that he will one day know the true meaning of this season, that Christ came to this earth to save Mommy, Daddy, Caden, and everyone else who would believe from their sins.

Caden last year vs. Caden this year.  Wow, what a difference a year makes!

We were able to enjoy precious time with family and friends this Christmas.  DP was able to get a couple days off before Christmas so we took Caden to Fashion Island to see the gigantic Christmas tree.

The weather was so nice and it was wonderful to be together as a family.  Caden’s favorite part of course was just running around all over the place.  He also found a cute dog that couldn’t stop petting.

We were able to host Christmas Eve dinner at our place with the Pyo siblings and the Hans.

Caden received a lot of love that night, especially from Nolan and Ella.  They formed a Caden sandwich!

As you can see he was loving it!

The Hans were so sweet to give the Pyo sisters matching pjs for Caden and his future cousins.  🙂  So so cute!

All the Pyo siblings wanted to see Caden open his first Christmas present so we woke him up late Christmas Eve.  He was pretty groggy but he loved seeing BearBear!!  He couldn’t stop hugging him and cried if we tried to take him away.

On Christmas morning we let Caden take out his gifts from his stocking and play with his new toys.

Again, we’re so thankful for God’s amazing blessings.  It was so sweet to share this special time with our son.  We pray that in the years to come, we will be able to share our love for Christ with Caden and that he will come to love and trust Him as his Savior.  We pray that he would know the joy, not of receiving mere earthly gifts but of receiving the greatest gift of being forever forgiven of his sins.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Picture update

It’s been awhile since my last post so I wanted to share some pictures from the last couple months.  Sadly, I feel like I’m slowing down in my picture taking.  I know I gotta get moving so I don’t miss out on so many precious memories.  He’s growing up so fast that it’s hard for me to keep up!

Here he is hamming it up for the camera.  Cheese!  This is just before leaving for Thanksgiving at Grandpa Kim’s house.

Here’s our big boy walking around in his diaper right before his bath.

There were so many awesome but inappropriate pics of Caden in his birthday suit.  🙂  This one made the cut.

We took  Caden to the mall to see Santa.  Here he is in awe of the big big tree.

We let him run around a bit and he was loving it!

Here he is with his first picture with Santa.   At first I don’t think he knew what was going on so he just sat there.

He took a couple glances at Santa and then started to get a little squirmy and nervous but all in all, not bad for his first time.

We grabbed some finger lickin’ good food at Ruby’s afterwards.

We also took Caden to see Christmas lights in Balboa.  It was extra special for DP and I because we used to come here together when we were dating.

Caden was pretty fascinated by all the lights and the singing Santa.

Someone was nice enough to offer to take family picture for us.  See the singing Santa behind us?  Kinda creepy but fun!
