Coffee & special time

I try to spend a little one on one time with each of the kids every once in a while so Friday morning I took Kaden with me while the other 3 stayed with our babysitter, Kim.  Kaden and I went and ran a few errands, and then had lunch!  Kaden was so funny while shopping with me, he walked around by himself like a big boy and had all kinds of things to say.  He wanted to buy me some lip gloss at a store, which was really sweet, but he didn't have any money.

On Saturday morning, I took Mia to Starbucks to have "special coffee" which means I gave her decaff.  When Mia was at the orphanage, she had a worker their that she was really close to and she and Holly used to have coffee together.  Mia asked to try it one time and she liked it ever since.  It was a special little thing they did together.  Holly even got Mia a tiny little coffee cup.  It kinda became a little tradition for Mia so on occasion she would have coffee with a few of the workers from the orphanage and it was their special time.  When Mia was getting ready to leave the orphanage, a few of the ladies had their last special coffee time with Mia.  Mia really likes black coffee so to carry on the tradition, every once in a while I am going to take her to Starbucks and have our own little coffee time!

That's so cute. We will have to have her over some time to have some of Steve's coffee the Walker way. We can even give her a china cup which I've learned is the only way to drink coffee.
