Happy (Dark) New Year!

Permalink 11:15:52 pm, Categories: Any  

We had to “rough it” this New Year’s Eve. The power went out at 9:15pm and didn’t come back on until after 2am! It was Haden’s first real experience without electricity; at first he was scared, but soon learned how cool playing with flashlights can be. It was just like camping out!

Ah - everything came together, and we didn’t have any unexpected leftover parts! Here’s Haden enjoying his new ‘house’.

Jungle Gym

The biggest present Haden got for Christmas was a jungle gym. It took Mom and Dad the better part of 2 days to build it in the backyard. Haden helped, too, of course!

Christmas Day!

At last the day has arrived on which Haden can open all the presents under the tree. This year was the first time he really seemed to truly enjoy opening presents - he was full of curiousity and anticipation.

Haden has been anticipating Santa’s arrival for weeks now. Here he is with an early Christmas present, along with the milk, cherries and cookies set out for Santa.

Cold Bucs Game

Permalink 08:57:12 pm, Categories: Any  

Yes, Haden is still a huge Bucs fan. He has a Josh Freeman jersey (number 5) and whenever he plays any kind of ball or racing game, he has to say “I’m number 5!". Usually Mom is number 20 and Dad’s number changes by the day.

(Yes, it was cold in Florida - about 48 degrees at game time.)

ICE

Haden spent the weekend over in Orlando and was able to check out ICE. The ICE exhibit is held each year and features over 2 million pounds of ice stored in a chilly 9 degree environment.

First Roller Coaster

Permalink 11:03:16 pm, Categories: Any  


First roller coaster ride (Goofy’s Barnstormer) at Disney’s Magic Kingdom. You have to be 35″ to ride and Haden is about 36.5″.



He liked the roller coaster so much, we had to do it a second time. Here he is with Dad on the climb up to the first big drop.

Haden had a great day at the Magic Kingdom - he also got to drive his first car!

Here he is riding the Jungle Cruise (it was a much bigger hit than Pirates of the Carribean, which surprisingly scared Haden).

He got to hide amongst some Christmas trees…

and ride a carousel…

and stare in wonder at the castle after dark.

Haden still loves to read to his animals. Lately he’s taken a real liking to Pooh bear.

Left and Right

Permalink 08:37:16 pm, Categories: Any  

Haden has figured left and right. We’ve been talking about these identifiers for awhile, but one day he figured out that he has a small freckle on his right hand that can be used to distinguish the two. He nearly always gets it right, although sometimes he has to check his hands to see which one has the freckle. (Amazingly, he figured this trick out on his own!)

KS Hill

The weekend in Kansas was very, very cold - and not just for us Floridians, honestly! In this picture, Mom and Haden could barely keep our eyes open against the minus 4 degree wind chill.

Graduation Weekend

Permalink 08:19:50 pm, Categories: Any  

Haden made his first trip back to Mom and Dad’s ol’ stompin’ grounds this weekend. His cousin Nathan was graduating from Kansas State University, so we met up with the extended Witten clan in Manhattan.

Left to Right: Bill, Joel, Judy, Barry, the Man-of-the-Hour Nate, Max, George (Brenda’s exchange student from Italy), Haden, Dad, and Brenda.
