Halloween '11




I am glad the kids enjoyed trick or treating but I am glad that Halloween is over. Here are a few photos and videos of the day. Ken couldn't take any pictures of the kids trick or treating because he was carrying Mady. She was scared of some of the houses and costumes.

Halloween cards


My parents and sister sent the kids Halloween cards. Mady had only been up from her nap for about 30 mins. She was upset that we opened the card and there were no princesses ( a note to myself and Matt we won't ever tell her there might be a princess in ANYTHING we aren't sure of). She now has been playing with her card all evening and is even sleeping with it.

Christmas is just around the corner...AHHH!

I am not ahead on my Christmas shopping as I was last year but close enough. We've gotten my MIL,SIL,BIL,SFIL and sister out the way. I know what we are getting my parents and we have Matt's list coming up next. He has 4 gifts right now and two on the way thru snail mail. His gifts are a little pricier than Mady's. She is so easy to shop for even when she is around us. I do have to admit I had to give her one early because she plays with the shapes and uses them as pastries. I am trying to sell the toys she is too old for or doesn't really use. Those "pastries" belong the a cookie jar that taught her about shapes but she has no need for it. I replaces her shapes with some real plastic sweets. She loved them and forgot all about her other ones. So, this is what we have for her so far. I don't plan on buying too much more. The easel is in our garage closet so I just pulled up a stock photo of it. One side is a dry erase board that comes with magnets and the other is a chalk board. I am so excited for her to use it :)

You da chicken


I started potty training Mady and its been a little under a week. She has been doing well but because of it we are staying in quite a bit. Today we played butterfly and chicken (I have no idea where she came up with it)for hours! I finally spoke up and told her I wanted to be butterfly and she could be chicken and she wasn't too happy about my suggestion. Excuse our bed...I was sorting out laundry when I spoke up.

Oh the little things...

I just started potty training Mady and she really has been doing well. It's just stressful and time consuming on top of that I am purging for a possibly up coming move. Our home is a little chaotic and slightly messy but in the mail today I received a free little make up bag with some samples and coupons from Target. It made my day. I know I know so small but I've been home all day dealing with the potty.

Mady and her pony


Little Mady has been sick for almost week. Earlier this week she was playing with her pony. Mady treats her animals better than her baby dolls.
