Shoo Shoos {Kaden Approved}

Kaden has a small obsession with trains (and anything else with wheels) these days. He LOVES his shoo shoos. We were going to get him a train table for Christmas, but I couldn't see spending $150-$200 dollars on a table, so the day after Christmas I started scouting Craigslist. I found this beauty with all the tracks, buildings, trees, etc for only $60. I think this is the best Craigslist purchase by far!! He will walk around the table to play with the trains, but usually he ends up on the table, and right in the middle of the track! 

 Apparently it's better if you get down on eye level. 

Sometimes, especially when it's close to bed time, he gets really frustrated when his trains won't stay on the track. But most of the time, he just has fun playing! It's safe to say his train table is "Kaden Approved"!!

Well Hello There...

Hello, my name's Nicole and I run this blog....although, not very well lately. I was in a little bit of a blogging funk right before Christmas, and then noticed how I just waited until Christmas and the New Year blew over so that I didn't have to feel the pressure of doing all the typical blog post. Christmas, New Years, Top 10 of 2012, etc.... 
Maybe one day in the near future I'll go back and do them....maybe. Or maybe I'll pretend that now is the beginning of a new year, and I'm already off to a good start! :)

So, I'm not sure about where you live, but around here the weather has been yucky lately. Lots of rainy, cool, muggy days. I was putting a bunch of pics from the month of December on my computer, and I found these. We had been cooped up in the house for several days, and we decided on the first decent day to take Kaden to the park to run off some energy. I love his little (& big) smiles!! 

 Here he's telling his daddy to go down first. Or at least that's what we assume!
 The child has NO fear! He likes to go down head first!

 I'm sorry, I may be biased, but do they come any cuter? :)
 He had lots of fun throwing the mulch around. I'm not sure why that was so entertaining?!?
Hopefully I'm back to the blogging world...hopefully!!
