Happy Birthday Madelyn

Happy Birthday Maddie!  It is hard to believe that this sweet little girl is four years old today!  As cliche as it may sound, time has flown by.  It feels like yesterday when my water broke and we were off to the hospital to meet our little girl.

Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween everyone!  We are in the full spirit of things today with costumes, parties, decorations, jack-o-lanterns, and of course, the all important trick-or-treating later tonight.  No themes for us this year.  Madelyn had her heart set on being Wonder Woman, which I love that she chose this all on her own.  (See what she wore last year here.)  Sabrina is wearing Maddie’s bumble bee costume from her first Halloween, and we bought Lily this adorable Lamb costume.  I’ve been…
