Madison's 4th Birthday!

Madison turned 4 years old yesterday. She started her day by going to school. She had a special snack, her class sang to her, and she got a present from her teacher! We had a family party later that night and she got lots of presents and had yummy birthday cake! Madison has such a fun personality and always keeps up laughing! She is such a good helper and tries hard to obey her parents. We love her so much! Here are a few of Madison's favorite things now that she is a four year old.
favorite food: lasagna
favorite color: pink
favorite treat: apple (I don't think that is actually the truth)
favorite thing to do: paint and play on the slide
favorite toys to play with: purses and babies
favorite movie: Dora

Madison's Barbie cake. I made this myself and I really struggle when it comes to cake decorating. This is actually one of my few attempts. It turned out pretty good and Madison loved it which is what's most important!

She got everything she had asked for!

Madison's first day of school

Madison started school today and has been so excited! It has been hard for her to watch Gavin go to school every day while she stays home. We visited her classroom last week and she was so excited about the dress ups and the sand table. She was concerned that there weren't any purses for her to play with and wanted to take her own. Her teacher this year is Mrs. Hall and we are very excited for a fun filled year!

Mark's Birthday

We went out to dinner for Mark's 30th birthday last weekend. We went to a place called Lotta Watta Creek. The name says it all because you get so much food. We topped it off with a brownie mudslide, it was delicious! I love spending time with Mark he is such a great husband and father! I love him so much and look forward to spending many more birthdays together!

The brownie mudslide. It was huge but well worth it!
