HoHoHo!

Well Garrett's first Christmas was a hit! We went down to Evansville on Wednesday (a day later thanks to the ice storm!). We went to church on Christmas Eve with Meme and Pape. Christmas Day was spent with my cousins Noah, Claire and Anna Grace. Santa was very good to all of us! My favorite thing to open was the big box my wagon came in! Then, Brandon's family came into town and we had Christmas at Grandma Kline's house. Garrett was spoiled rotten with many wonderful gifts like a ball popper, music table, blocks, videos and more bath toys! We have been very blessed this year and are looking foward to a New Year !

We wanted to show everyone Garrett's favorite time of the day! We all have really come to cherrish bath time. Garrett takes a bath every night. No he is not a particularly dirty kid but he gets fussy around 6pm every night and this is how we keep the peace in this family. He is instantly all smiles when he hits the water and we love to watch him play. Brandon and I spend the time on the bathroom floor catching eachother up on our day! Yesterday Garrett got an early Christmas present from Grandpa Kline, a new tugboat for the tub...its a hit! Thanks Grandpa!











You say mama, I say dadda

Garrett has been going around the house for about the past two weeks constantly saying dadadada. Last week, Garrett learned to say mamamama. Now, all he wants and says is momma. Go figure!

Santa Baby

I wanted to put Amanda's new pictures of Garrett up. As usual, she did such a great job capturing the wonder of an eight month old. Our family has really enjoyed the season so far despite the routine of me starting a new job. I have really paused lately to enjoy the incredible joy and peace Christmas brings to us. Even though I believe there is so much hurt and struggle in our world today with the market and war, I cannot help but feel a sense that our Lord has it all wrapped up in His very large hand and is taking care of it all! He keeps whispering to me, "Ive got it". My hope is that all my friends and family feel the peace that comes with the Lord's love and grace! Merry Christmas!

It's been awhile!

We apologize it has been so long since we have last given you a Kilne family update. November was plagued with illness in our family. Garrett shared a lovely stomach bug with the whole family and then Garrett was diagnosed with a double ear infection. All along I was trying to train my replacement at work and Brandon was trying to stay afloat from having to miss school. Praise God we were healthy just in time for Turkey day! I took a week off between starting my new job and we enjoyed a great 5 days home in E'ville with family and friends! Garrett is definitely on the move. He is now pulling up and cruising on furniture. Busy...busy. It was fun to spend so much time with him last week. We also spent time with good friends and both sides of our family were in town. Garrett was able to meet Santa for the first time (thanks to Grandpa Jerry...shhhhh). He did great, no tears! Otherwise he was passed around and loved on for five days straight! Garrett is getting his two front teeth for Christmas! We are looking foward to the Christmas holiday and all the joy it brings. Hope you find this time as enjoyable as we do. I also put some picttures of my little sock monkey from Halloween since we fell behind! Love you all!


Hohoho! Santa brought Garrett a train whistle and hat!
