We went to the Christmas Tree lighting this year but after seeing the super long line we decided to go back the next day to see Santa. We only stood in line for about five minutes!!
Madison talked to Santa for both the girls!! The only thing Emma said was that she wanted a Tiger toy! I have NO idea where she came up with that!! Madison kept asking me, while we were waiting, what it was that she wanted!! She couldn't remember the name! She wants the Leapster but I think if you can't even remember it then why should you get it!! Good thing Santa is nicer then me!!

Hanging the Christmas Lights

After lots of pleading from the girls (mostly Madison) Brad hung the lights! It was Madison's first time helping and she was not to sure about being on the roof.
Just look at that expression!
Emma on the other hand was fearless!! We actually took her down after telling her to stop moving so much! It's pretty sad when the mom is more scared then the 2 year old!!

Although Madison was scared in the beginning she had no problems by the end of it!! She was even walking around not holding Brad's hand!! I don't know if I should be proud or scared!!

What a sweetie!

This morning my little rug rat woke up at 5:45! So I grabbed her and put her bed with me. She squirmed for an hour and then got up. While I was still laying in bed I heard her singing
" I love Maddie, I love Maddie all day long!"
My girls are ALWAYS making up songs!! They come up with the funniest things or REALLY sweet things!!
It was so cute!! Then it was followed by "I just went potty and poopy"
Which prompted me to jump out of bed and help her!!
I love that my kids can sing about loving their sister and going to the bathroom in the same song!!
Now that's talent!!

Christmas Tree

After last years Christmas Tree debacle we decided to go all together to get a Christmas Tree instead of just sending the guys and the kids! Well after lots of changes in plans we realized our little car was not going to make it up to go get a tree in the snow. So this year we used our fake tree! I am personally not a big fan but we wanted to get the tree up, so here it is!The great thing is the girls love it and that's all that really matters...right?
After we were done Madison just went on and on about how it was perfect!!
I love her excitement!
And after seeing two happy kids in front of the tree, I'd say it is pretty perfect!

Shooting...for girls?

One of Brad's family's traditions is to go shooting on Thanksgiving. Well this year his parents went out of town so he ended up going the day after Thanksgiving with some cousins and Jake (his brother).
Every year Madison really wants to go so I send her wondering what she actually does!!

Now I know!!
Good thing Lynnie goes too or who knows what she would do!!


We went to Brya's for Thanksgiving this year and had a lot of fun! That morning we had a funny incident!! Madison and Emma wanted to wear dresses! Which I was strongly discouraging since they were going to want to play with their cousins and they wouldn't be able to play like they wanted, well that was my reasoning!! A few tears later they finally won and they got to wear the dresses. For once I thought ahead and brought other clothes. About ten minutes after we got there and a million reminders to sit properly in a dress the dresses were off!! I do not know where this strong desire to where dresses comes from! Everyday they want to wear dresses and I try to discourage it because its so cold!
I never thought I would get those girls!!
Other than our dress drama we had a great day!! We ate and played games all day! I couldn't have asked for a better day...except maybe the gravy!

Apparently I'm to much for the front of the house so they had to put me in the back!!

Ward HalloweenParty

Our ward kind of does it all! We have the Chili cook off, the Trunk or Treat, and the Carnival games!!
Our girls' favorite is the candy!

This year my beehives did face painting!
They did a great job!Emma liked the cake walk until her number was called and she had to stop, not how I played!
Although maybe that's because her dad took the cupcake?

Madison's First Field Trip

Our first field trip was at Lattin's Farm.The kids took the hay ride out to the pumpkin patch. They got to pick out their own pumpkin!
I actually let her pick it out with out any input!! A break though for me!!
The fun part was my Uncle Don was the one that took us around.
He is so great with the kids!

The field trip was a success, the kids had so much fun!

Madison's 5th Birthday Party

For Madison's Birthday this year she decided she wanted a Tinkerbell Tea Party!
We had everyone dress up as fairiesWe made wands and headbands
Madison dressed up as Tinkerbell
We had flower sandwiches with tiny Cinnamon rolls fruit and grape soda!! Madison had to have purple drink!

The kids seemed to have a lot of fun! The only complaint I got was from the parents when the kids went home with heads full of glitter!! (Fairy freeze tag!)

I am so glad it is over and I don't have to do another party for another year!!!
