Maddyson update!!

Maddyson is 6 weeks old now!! man, the time has gone by really fast. She is a great baby. She is a good eater and a good sleeper.  She holds her head up really good, and she is more awake during the day and its fun!! Amilee loves her so much too!! It is so fun!! Here are some pics!!

More pics to come!!! They were matching yesterday and it was darling!!

Christmas festivities!!!

This year we were able to decorate a gingerbread house with Amilee.  A few days before decorating, Amilee kept asking to make the house. She was very excited.  And then when it actually came time to do it, she only wanted to help a little bit.  Kind of funny!! Here are some pics

On Christmas Eve, Amilee put out cookies for Santa and some celery for the reindeer and we snapped her picture in front of the fireplace with all of the stockings.  Sorry the pics are in the wrong order.  We took the video of her Christmas morning right after she woke up to see what Santa brought her in her stocking.  She loved her Elmo objects.  We had a great Christmas with her.

On Christmas morning, Amilee opened her stocking and then we went to church.  I sang in sacrament meeting with two other sisters, and it turned out really good. We went home and had breakfast and then we opened presents with everyone.  Amilee loved it, but she was overwhelmed with all the presents.  Poor thing was also sick, so that kind of made for a hard day.  We put Amilee down for a nap and then she opened some more presents.  We had a nice dinner and then went to Christmas tree lane again, and Amilee loves looking at all the lights.  It was a great Christmas!!!

Amilee's 2nd birthday!!

This year we had an Elmo themed party for Amilee.  We had family and some of Amilee's friends from nursery over.  It really was a great party, and for a 2 year old, Amilee did pretty good.  We are so thankful for the friends and family that were able to come.  We are also so thankful for Amilee. We really do love her so much and she brings so much joy and happiness to our lives.

Here are some pictures of the party!

I loved her cake!! it turned out great!!
