Winterfest 2010

Cliff had his first youth rally here a couple of weekends ago. When I asked him what he wanted me to say about it, all he could say was....It's finally over. He worked so hard and I really feel it went very well. Northside has not had hosted a youth rally in several years so we were so excited to have around 100 kids come. This is a very good turn out for the Northwest. We brought in Ike Graul from Portland as our main speaker. He is the minister at the PUMP church. He did a great job and the kids really seemed to respond to him well. I got to serve on the praise team which was a lot of fun but unfortunately had to call in a replacement for the last two worship times because I got sick. Cliff had great support from our church family....we had more than we needed for housing and really feel that we could not have put on this event without the support that was provided. Our good friend Camille took Aidan for the weekend and he was such a trooper for her considering that he was sick as well. All in all we were very pleased with the weekend and I know that Cliff is enjoying his rest now before preparing for Pump this summer and going back to school in a couple of months. Here are a few pics I got....my camera was being stupid so the lighting is the greatest but at least its something. The family pic was from the Valentines banquet where Cliff decided to get dressed up....:)

Crackers Please

Today my time consisted of following Aidan from room to room and cleaning up his messes. Today I was in the living room cleaning up one of his messes when he crabbed some crackers and decided to have a snack. Here are some pics and a video I was able to get.

Aidan Walking Take 2

So I was able to get a better video of Aidan walking this weekend at our youth rally. I can't believe he has been walking less than two weeks....He is already a pro!!!!! (Please ignore his mismatched outfit as he spilled all his lunch on his top...LOL)

Aidan's one year photos.!

Aidan's one year photos are in.....They turned out pretty good especially considering that he was very grumpy during that time.....Here is the link if you would like to see them. You will need to copy and paste it into the tool bar.

This and that

"Can I help with the laundry Mommy?"

He has been obsessed with electronics. Whenever he sees a phone he will immediately grab it and just start jabbering away.

I was cleaning up the kitchen the other day and left the room for a second and when I came back this is what I found. All I could do was laugh and say, "Okay little Judson....Time to get down."....LOL

I am proud to say that I have finished the last two pages of Aidan's first year scrapbook. I started last April and had a great time working on it. Here is the very first page I did and the last two of the book.

Aidan is still walking up a storm. A couple of days ago I counted 20 steps in a row.....Since then I have stopped counting because he is just going everywhere now. It's pretty funny to watch. I will try to get a better video up again.

Aidan Walking

So the lighting in the video is very dark but at least you can see a little bit. I mentioned before that he took his first few steps on Sunday. He is now taking several at a time. He is loving it!!! I'm not sure if he gets so excited because it is something new for him or if it is because he gets so much praise from mommy or daddy. Either way he is loving life this week!!
