Double Digits

Where does the time go??  How is she 10 already?? 


Maddy’s birthday was on a Monday. The first day back to school after Christmas break.  I picked up Macaroni Grill for dinner for the birthday girl.  She had a double doozie cookie for dessert and then opened presents from us. 


One of her presents was a Mani/Pedi.  This girl loves to be pampered. 


We had her party at the skating rink.  It was wonderful……….all I did was bring cupcakes. 



This little squirt LOVED skating and did surprisingly well, even wearing skates about 5 sizes too big!


Maddy is lucky to have good friends to help her celebrate.


Maddy is such a good girl.  She is very mature and wants to grow up a little too fast.  I try to remind her to enjoy these simple and fun years.


She is a great big sister!  She is my second hand around the house.



She is so intelligent.  She is kind.  She is thoughtful.  She is outgoing.  She is a TALKER.  She is awesome.

Happy Birthday Madison Kay!

Christmas Eve and Morning

We had a wonderful Christmas this year.  Micha made us a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner.  We read Luke 2.  The girls opened one present each.  We left cookies and milk for Santa.  They were tucked into bed and asleep by 9.


Santa made his way by our house and left plenty of presents for the girls.


Madison and Olivia woke up at 3 am.(I told them to not come in our room until 6 am)  They opened their stockings and patiently waited until 6 am (5:55 to be exact).





It took Ellie a while to wake up and get into it, but once she did she LOVED opening presents!  She was very meticulous with the paper.  Every piece she tore off had to be thrown away immediately.  


Have you ever watched Impractical Jokers??  Well you should!  It’s HILARIOUS!  I got the first season Smile


The girls got Kindle Fires.  They were sooo excited!


  Happy, smiling faces is what I love to see!


Ellie trying out her Minnie 4Wheeler


Livy is loving her Princess dream castle!




I love to see how happy they get when they open their presents on Christmas morning. 

I love that they know the true reason for celebrating Christmas.

I love that they have knowledge of our Savior and his love for them.
