This might just be the first post, not about Kaden, I've done in 6 months! We pretty much walk, talk, breath, everything Kaden (and love it!), but there has been a few holiday occasions lately that we went babyless.
This was a Christmas cookie exchange and hat decorating contest party a co-worker had right before school got out for break. It was nice to get together, eat, and laugh with friends.
My planning team (9 of the 16 first grade teachers) decided to do a "12 days of Christmas" secret Santa this year. We had a great time spoiling each other for the 12 days before Christmas break and ended the fun at Sweet Frog, where we announced our secret Santas. Thanks Susan for all my goodies!
That same evening, Kirby and I enjoyed our first "date" since Kaden was born for his school's Christmas party. One of my good friends, Jeanna, came over and watched Kaden for a few hours while we went out. It was our first time leaving him at home with a babysitter too, so needless to say... we didn't stay out too late.
