Kitchen Helper

 Madison really likes to help out in the kitchen.  One day last week I was making biscuits and gravy and she really wanted to help.  She did such a good job a stirring the gravy, while I browned the sausage.
 She even helped me make and cut out the biscuits, she even had her own little biscuit.
Brunch was very good that day!

Hair cut

Madie decided she wanted short hair.  So she found scissors and started cutting.

 Luckily I was able to save some of her hair.  She just has a cute pixie look.

Play Time

I love it when the kids are playing nicely together...

and who knew Tinkerbell and friends would play so well with Ben 10 Aliens.

For the last 2 weeks I have been working with Madie on learning to read and write.  She is doing well and I have already seen progress.
This is her writing her own name on the first day...

this is after two weeks.
She is definatly improving.

Hair Cut Day

Ever since I cut my hair Madison has been beging me to "cut her hair like mommys", and for the last couple of weeks Wayne has been complaining that Collin no longer looks like a boy.
So I finally broke down and after almost 2 years Madison got her second hair cut, and Collin got his first a week after his second birthday.

All the hair she lost.


 All the hair he lost.

Madison is 4

 My little girl is growing up.  Yesterday she turned 4.   
 We had a fun little party at home for her.  She got some great gifts.

She loves pink, so she had to have pink frosting, pink candles, and pink ice cream.

Happy Birthday baby girl.  I love you.

Snow Day

While visiting Papa and Gma Julie, we went further up the mountain where there was lots of fresh snow.

 The two things Madie had to do were make a snow angel and build a snow man.
Even uncle Brad helped.

 We had a snow ball war. Wayne, Madison, Collin and myself against Brad, Jamie, Geneva and Bennett.

 We stoped for lunch, and Geneva and Bennett were done with the snow...
 but, Madie and Collin wanted to sled somemore.  They had so much fun going down the hill.


                                       Madie loves Tinkerbell, and I found this beautiful dress on clerance.  We decided to have fun and get the whole family involved.

While Madie's dress is store bought, I made the rest of the costumes.
