Merry Christmas!

We had so much fun this Christmas! Maddie didn't really understand what was going on, but loved the boxes and wrapping paper. I bought these self-sticking curlers, and tried to curl her hair! I got it to go a little bit, but it kind looked like she had wings. We celebrated Christmas eve with my family, and then went house hopping on Christmas day to Matt's fam. Hope you all had a good one!

I'm back

I have become the biggest blog slacker of all time! Sorry everyone! We have been so crazy busy these last few weeks, as I'm sure you all have with the holidays coming.
I have some great news....I PASSED MATH! I'm sure most of you know that this has been a struggle for me, and has taken me like F-O-R-E-V-E-R to do, but I finally have my Associate's! Yeah! Matt is still plugging along with his program, and we are looking to Christmas next week. I promise to not neglect my blog for as long this time. I hope you all have a great holiday, and thanks for all your cute Christmas cards!

Start of the holidays

This Friday, instead of heading out into the crazy shopping madness, we went down to the Christmas Tree Express.
Ogden, and Weber school districts put on this event every year, at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. There are hundreds of Christmas trees that are donated by businesses in the area, and then sold at an auction, with all of the proceeds donated to the schools. They also have a big craft fair, with lots of cute Christmas things. It's nice to know that your money going to a good cause.
I can't wait for Christmas!!

I'm so glad that Madelyn is getting into reading already. I love books, and think it's so important for children to get interested in them while their young. I thought this was such a cute, candid picture of Maddie reading to Matt.

here kitty kitty...

This is Maddie and her cat. We don't know where it lives, but it always comes to a our window, and begs for food. Maddie LOVES it! We plop her down in front of him, and she laughs, squeals, and hits the window trying to touch it. I have to say it's one of the cutest things to watch, even though I think cats are gross!

Hey everyone,
So I haven't really done much that's worth blogging about lately, but wanted to check in. Maddie is now sitting up all by herself, and has her first tooth! Matt is still plugging away with school, and doing great. We are getting so excited for the holidays, especially Christmas, and I can't wait for Maddie to have her first one. Hope all of you are doing good. I shall blog again soon, with more exciting things to report.

Partay Time

We held our annual Halloween party this weekend. It was so much fun to see everyone all dressed up in their costumes! Maddie was dressed up as a giraffe, I was Superman, and Matt was a hunter. Thanks to everyone that came, we have the best friends! Although, we missed Hollie and Brit, who are far away from home. Happy Halloween to all!
