Flower Child

I took the little girls to the park to pick up Noah from his soccer tryouts. Unfortunately, the equipment was so hot that we couldn't play on it. We picked daisies and made Annabel into a perfect little hippy child instead. She loved it. With her fairy wings dress and flowers on her head, she was absolutely beautiful. She totally missed the 60's by a few decades. That's ok, here's to hoping that she can bring it back. ;)

Happy Birthday Madeline! (Belated)

So I could have sworn this blog already got posted as I typed it up and hit submit, but for some reason, It not here. So this is Madelines HAPPY BIRTHDAY post but late. Im sorry sweetie. I KNOW I already did it. Sheesh.

Anyhoos...Madeline just turned 17. Yup, Thats what I said, SEVENTEEN. I thought having a 15yo was hard, 17, is way harder. She is only one year away from being an official adult. Scary. To top that off, shes oficially older than I was when Aaron and I started dating. Now THAT is freaky.

She's pretty darn close to being the perfect teenager too. After my teen years, Im not sure what I did to deserve such an awesome kid, but I thank God every day for her. She kind, happy, considerate, empathetic, pretty much everything you could ask for in a person, yet more.

So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Beautiful Madeline. You are the light in my life. I love you so much.
