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.
