We had a great Thanksgiving filled with family, fun, food and football. Kingston was in heaven with four cousins to play with! Gabe and Camden enjoyed "hanging" out too! Kingston was excited to help put up Aunt Kathy's Christmas tree, make mints with Mimi, and spend countless hours playing outside. Chris and I were very thankful for all of the extra help and great food! (Mimi and Pops sacrificed sleep and kept Kingston in the hotel with them!)

First outing to church

Camden made his first appearance at church on Sunday. This was also the Sunday that Chris was leading worship, so I had both boys by myself (and some help from my wonderful friends)! We managed to get to church early and settled in before worship started. Camden slept the whole time and only woke up when we were about 2 min. from the house! Overall it was a successful outing!

Camden Claus is coming too...

Kingston Claus is coming to town...

Here's some of the silly pictures from our Christmas card photo shoot. Both boys did a great job! Kingston "earned" three treats from the candy bag. It's amazing what kids will do for some candy!!!

This is Kingston's CHEESE it's cold outside face!

Kingston was a very proud big brother. He really enjoyed loving on his Camden and took very good care of him!

I love this shot! Camden looks very scared of what is happening to him. Too much loving big bro!

Two Sweet Boys

This has become Kingston's morning routine: eat breakfast, turn on cartoons, hold Camden while watching cartoons! I have to fight the boy to get Camden back!!!! I'm so glad Kingston loves his brother so much.

Welcome Home!

Camden's cute monkey outfit

The Barber's are now a family of four!

Camden was released from the hospital this morning. Everything was looking good! We are glad to be home as a family. Kingston, in an effort to get some attention went out the front door and used the outside urinal. Then right when Camden was screaming his head off for a new diaper, Kingston went out the back door and did his "other" business! Yes, I have been welcomed to life with two kids. Thank goodness Mimi and Pops and Daddy were all here to preserve my sanity!

Kingston wanted to take a picture of Camden with HIS camera

Mimi, Kingston and Pops made a Welcome Home sign for us!

Chris thought he needed some oxygen from Camden's hood!

Last night in the hospital

Kingston, Mimi and Pops came to visit Camden one more time in the hospital. Kingston immediately wanted to hold baby Camden!

One last love for the night

Camden decided he needed an extra night or two in the hospital before all the chaos of home life hit. Chris and I came home last night and are headed back this morning to check on little Camden.

Let the loving begin

Kingston finally got his hands on his little brother! He loves him SO much and can't wait to show any visitors HIS brother. Of course he has to show everyone what Camden brought him- Veggie Tales Moe and the Big Exit DVD!

Camden is here!

Camden is here ( a few days early)! He came in time to put his vote in for the presidential election. He arrived at 1:15 pm and weighed a big 8 oz. and was 20 in long. He had a little trouble breathing, so he's been under a breathing hood. Everybody is doing good now! Chris is rubbing his head and hands, so those that know him know that he is tired! What does he have to be tired about?!?!
