Maddy’s Birthday in Pictures

On Maddy’s birthday we were with family, Andy got to spend the weekend with us at my parent’s and then headed back to work.  I stayed the week with the kids. She had two little celebrations, one with just Grandma and Grandpa and one with Nana, Papa and Auntie Heidi and of course all the…

Maddy’s My Little Pony Birthday Party

We celebrated Maddy’s birthday with her friends almost a month ago, but it seems like forever ago now.  Maddy wanted a home birthday party, for her very first friend party.  Home birthday parties are fun to plan.  We decided on a My Little pony party because my girl loves her ponies.  But she also wanted…

Happy 5th Birthday Maddy

Dear Maddy Today you turned 5 years old.  5 years ago you entered this world fashionably late for your due date (by 1.5 hours), in a hurry (you were born about an hour after we got to the hospital) and ready to party.   It fits your personality. You are full of life, Madelynn, and…

Nine

Hayden you turned Nine almost a month ago, on mother’s day.  So fitting to get to celebrate your day with you on mom’s day, because without you I wouldn’t have been a mom.  You are the one who started me down this journey of motherhood and I am so lucky to have gotten you. You…

Fabulous Four

Maddy is doing something rare today, she is napping, she hasn’t napped in months. She has been having these meltdowns for things that aren’t a big deal for a few days and I knew I had to have her nap. Her birthday was two weeks ago now and while I meant to blog about it…

FOUR

Today my girl is 4 years old. So many things I love about this little girl of mine. Her love for all of us, it is something fierce. Her love for all animals. The way she puts on her jewelry right after she wakes up. The way she loves the water. And so many more…

8th Birthday Party in pictures

Hayden’s 8th birthday party was two weeks ago.  He had a blast, invited 5 friends to an indoor play park, that had mini golf, bumper cars, laser tag, etc. This year we talked him out of a home birthday party.  With Maddy’s ballet recital the same weekend we wanted to do a party, it was…

A birthday, rehearsal and family visit.

This past weekend was a whirlwind.  It included Hayden’s birthday party with friends and not one but two ballet recitals. It was super fun, but more on that later. Hayden’s birthday weekend was the weekend before and my family came up to visit and help Hayden celebrate his big day.  It was a fun, busy…

Eight

Hayden turned 8 years old last Saturday.  Eight.  Years.  Old.  I have an eight year old. We had my family visiting to help celebrate Hayden’s big day, they helped to make it so very special (more on that later).  Hayden proclaimed in the middle of the day  “I am having the best birthday ever!”  And…

When I first started cooking meals, I used to have the hardest time getting everything ready at the same time, you know the side dish, vegetable and main dish.  At first they were never done at the same time. I used to sit and wonder how on earth my mom accomplished this every single night. …
