 baby K's mini-cake

 Kaden's big cake!

Kaden is our little hurricane!
He loves to eat grapes, blueberries, and oranges.
He can say - Mama, Dada, Baba, Uh-oh, All-done (sounds like aaaadunn), Izzy (pronounced zeezee), and NO!NO!NO!.
He also loves to make car noises.
He walks quickly, and climbs the stairs up and down.
He has 4 teeth, and a big happy smile.
We love him so much and he makes our lives so much better, 
and certainly more exciting and lively!

we had a small family / friends get together at my parents.
Uncle Tyson was wrestling in the state tournament that night at UVU,
and ended up winning and going on to take state which was VERY exciting for all of the Kohler clan!

2010 was a big year for us, we had a lot of firsts...
just to name a few -

we started as 2 and ended as 3.
we prepared for a baby.
we delivered a baby.
Ryan learned how to change a diaper.
I began life as a stay-at-home momma.
I turned 23 and for the first time -- really felt 23 (maybe even older than that).
We took a fabulous trip to San Diego with the Welling family (not a first, but our first trip with Kaders).
Kaden swam and took his first trip to Disneyland.
Kaden crawled at 6 months - around August.
we baby-proofed.
Kaden took a trip to the Zoo, and some football games.
Ryan (and I) got to Hawaii for the first time over Thanksgiving with the Kohler Fam. 
We started in a brand new ward in new(and scary) callings.
I returned to school in the fall.
Ryan turned 28 and so began the 'nearing 30' jokes.
Kaden took his first steps before Christmas. (10 months)
we toddler proofed.
Ryan was the number one banker in Utah!
We sent out Christmas Cards.

Now prepare yourself for A LOT of pictures -

we grew up, we grew in numbers, our love grew, our faith grew,
our testimonies grew, our friendships grew.

yea... 2010 was a good one. My best so far.
Here's to an even more fabulous 2011 --
that is already 1/4 over (I know.. okay?)
