I can only imagine how long it will take me to decide on the perfect one with all the choices they offer!We recently had family photos done and we were all wearing chocolate brown and red. I know they will have the perfect card to match our colors!One year for Christmas my mom made us all monthly calendars from Shutterfly and they turned out super cute.

Happy Halloween!






My Cupcake is Three!


My "sweet" girl turned 3!! I can hardly believe it. Where has time gone? We decided to have Madi's birthday party at Benny Russell Park. Although it is October, it was still quite hot! All the kids had a blast. They got to decorate their own cupcakes, which was a big hit!

Madi received many great presents, but her favorite by far is from Aunt Suzie, Uncle Ed, and the kids. She got a new kitty!
Meet Anna Grace (named after her friend from church). We have since shortened her name to Grace.


Thank you to all of Madilyn's friends and family who came out to share her birthday with us!




Stampin' It Up!
















Unknown to me, Nana was making cards for the ladies at work when we entered the scene. Madi just couldn't resist, she had to join in on the fun! Nana, being the patient grandma she is, welcomed Madi's little hands. They had a great time and thanks to the newspaper, cleanup was much easier! Thank you Nana for always being so patient!

Happy Grandparents Day!!


I just had to share this picture!! For Grandparents Day, Heidi (or Tia as Madi fondly calls her) helped Madi make cookies that resembled her grandparents. Madi was heartbroken when on the way to the car, her D cookie fell and broke! It was pitiful! Needless to say, after the D cookie incident...the Nana cookie didn't make it all the way home either! And boy was she delicious!!

We Have Another Fish On Our Hands!

Summer is coming to an end! We have officially started back to school. We are trying to soak up the last few weekends of being able to enjoy the pool. Madi started swimming this weekend all by herself. She has been attempting it for a while now, but she (or should I say, I) was too scared to let her go to the deep. Today she did it! Jumped right off the side in the deep, flipped her hair back, and swam to Nana! I'm so proud that my 2 year old is swimming!!!
She is getting way too big, way too fast!
