1st day of 4th grade!

Madison started school last Thursday and so began her adventures in 4th grade. She was pretty excited because she got the teacher she wanted and two of her best friends were in her class. Hopefully all will go well and they won't have their "BFF" disagreements this year. She also made team in gymnastics this summer so along with school she will have practice three days a week for 3hrs! along with her nightly homework... She is a hard worker so I have faith that it will all work out...

Madison's 10th Birthday

Okay... I will be posting a slide show of Madison's three day Birthday celebration tonight. I couldn't choose which ones to post so I thought to myself "self... why don't you just post them all". It was a really great time and I had fun making the cake again this year. Last year it was a butterfly cake and this year it was a double layer chocolate cake with white frosting. Mady also wanted chocolate covered strawberries on top so who am I to disagree. I am NOT the cake boss however I do try and hopefully they will get better as the years go by. She is one great little girl and three years ago God blessed me by bringer her and her father into my life.

8th above......9th below...

I haven’t wanted to post anything for a while because then it would block Barry’s blog ( I have a pretty great guy ) but….I must. Madison’s 10th birthday is this Saturday ( yes we will be in the double digits ). So for fun I wanted to post pictures from her last two birthdays. She is growing up so darn fast! I also surprised her by painting her room last Saturday. I spent Sunday in extreme pain but the labor of love was well worth it because she was so happy. I will post before and after shots of her room with her new party pictures after this weekend.
