Madison and the boys, they couldn't get enough of the stairs!! Madison in the beginning would "put" herself in time out so she could go up the stairs!!

This the paper room!! My Aunt Stacey just moved in so they put all the packing paper in this room for the kids to play with!! It was a lot of fun for them and the adults!

Savannah, Aunt Tami, and Madison This is the pool and water slide that we decided to go down that night, it was freezing but really fun!!

Here's the kids in front of the house!! The house is beautiful!!

Krypto Superdog

This morning Madison came to me and wanted me to put a "cape" on her!! Then she started pretending to be Krypto Superdog!! To those who don't know Krypto he is a superhero dog on Cartoon Network, thanks to my sister Brya, Madison loves the show!! Here is Krypto posing, this is how she would "fly" around the house, seriously!!
And here is streaky (a sidekick cat) and Krypto!! Bathound was MIA or actually taking the pictures!! He was a little camera shy!! But yes they were all running or should I say Flying around the house this morning capes and all!! Bathounds' was the most impressive if I do say so myself!!
(By the way Brya knows all the charater names if you need them!!!)

Pore Pete is Daid (not for the weak in heart)

Curly:Pore Pete is daid, Pore Pete is daid,
All gather 'round the disposal now and cry
He had a heart of gold
And he wasn't very old
Oh why did such a feller have to die?
Pore Pete is daid
Pore Pete is daid,
He's lookin' oh so peaceful and serene

Jud: And serene!

Curly:He's all laid out to rest
With his hands acrost his chest
His fingernails have never been so clean!

(Spoken)Then the preacher'd get up and he'd say:
(Chanting)Folks, we are gathered here to moan and groan over our brother Pete, who drowned in clean water
(Spoken)Then there'd be weepin' and wailin'... from some of those women. Then he'd say:
(Chanting)Pete was the most misunderstood man in this here territory. People used to think he was a mean ugly feller and they called
him a dirty skunk and an ornery pig stealer
(Sung)But the folks that really knowed him.

(Chant) Knowed that beneath them two dirty shirts he always wore

(Sung)There beat a heart as big as all outdoors

Jud:As big as all outdoors.
Curly:Pete loved his feller man
Jud:He loved hes feller man

Curly (Spoken):He loved the birds of the air and the beasts of the field.
He loved the mice and the vermin in the barns, and he treated
the rats like equals, which was right. And he loved little children. He loved everybody and everything in the whole world!
Only he never let on, so nobody ever knowed it.
(Sung)Pore Pete is Daid
Pore Pete is daid
His friends'll weep and wail for miles around
Jud: Miles Around!

Curly:The daisies in the dell will give out a different smell
Because Pore Pete is in the garbage disposal.

Jud:Pore Pete is daid
A Candle lights his haid
He's layin' in garbage disposal

Curly: disposal...

Jud:And folks are feelin' sad
Cause they useter treat him bad
But now they know their friend is gone for good

Curly: Good..

Both: Pore Pete is Daid a candle lights his haid!

Curly:He's lookin' oh so purty and so nice
He looks like he's asleep, It's a shame that he won't keep
But it's summer and we're running out of ice.

Both: Pore Pete, Pore Pete.

So yes, it is true..."Pete is Daid!!" This morning Brad woke me up and then a couple minutes later I heard the garbage disposal and I thought what is he doing. It 5:30!!! Then I walked into the living room and Brad told me Pete was dead!! Apparently when Brad changed his water last night he didn't put some of the old water back in so he died!! I just want the record to say I didn't do it this time!!

Oh yeah, and IN the garbage disposal was what was left of PETE!!! Who puts a fish in the garbage disposal!! You FLUSH them, you know watery grave, and all!! Seriously, what kind of person puts a fish down the disposal?? Who does that!?!

After we had this discussion Brad felt really bad and went and got another fish!!

So meet Pete 2 just don't tell Madison!!

"cause I have a big heart"

Today Madison was talking about her friend Rome and I was teasing her and saying he was my friend not hers and her response to that was:

"Mommy he's my friend, cause I like lots of people, cause I have a big heart!!!"

It was So cute!! She got the "big heart" from the grinch's big heart at the end!! I just love my little girl and her big heart!! How lucky am I to have such a sweet girl!!

Meet Pete!!

That's right we took on the HUGE responsibility of having a pet!!! This is PETE so named by Madison!! It took her a LONG time to come up with it, but by the time we left walmart he had a name! Madison LOVES him!! The other night she actually wanted to kiss him goodnight! She gets up on a chair and watches him constantly, it is so cute!! Now we jsut have to worry about keeping him alive, those who know me, know it IS going to be a challenge. There have been MANY flushed fish in my day!!! We might end up with Pete two or three, but for Pete one's sake I hope not!!
