Santa Claus is Coming to Town....

This was so much fun, we decided to go with Joe and Maren and take the kids to see santa. Taylor was certain that Madilyn would throw a fit, but I was confident that she would be fine with it. And she was, she sat on his lap and jabbered about what she wanted for Christmas. And he was such a good santa too, very good with kids. But then he gave her some crayons and a paper to color, along with a candy cane. For some reason though, during the picture we couldn't get either of the girls to crack even the slightest smiles. The lady was shaking a stuffed animal with jingle bells on it....this was their response to our efforts! Haha I love it so much, perfect!!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season!!!

Our week in pictures...

I love my girls so much, they are the best, not to mention so cute!! So here is some picture to sum up our week...enjoy!

Madilyn is starting to get such an imagination..it is so cute watching her play by herself now. She is really into her animals this week too.

That sweet little face is impossible not to kiss!! She is now rolling all over the place, and she can hold her own bottle, finally!

So Eliza was playing with one of Madilyn's toys that she wanted, so I told Madilyn to get another toy for her to play with instead...this is what she brought her, a stroller!

Just watching a show together, so funny!

One of Madilyn's all time favorite things is the bath, she requests a bath at least twice a day.

This is Eliza's new favorite thing to do...she can get some sweet air!

Madilyn & Charlie

Madilyn has a best friend, that would be Charlie....yes she is quite a bit younger than her, but Madilyn loves having someone follow her around and laugh at her. At the same time, it can be more of a hate, in the love hate relationship. Sometimes Madilyn gets a little aggressive and possessive over her toys, or Charlie's toys. But here are a few shots of the girls together from this week. She really will miss saying, "where'd Charlie go?" or "Charlie play" or "Charlie sad?"

Haha I love Madilyn's open wide mouth. She has it down! And Charlie's is a look of plea more like it.
She does this very often to get a laugh out of Charlie.

So a funny story... We were hanging out downstairs with Tarilyn and Charlie, and Madilyn was doing one of Charlie's puzzles. There was one missing piece, so she said, "where'd it go?" Tarilyn replied, "I don't know, you tell me, it has been missing since you played with it last." So I turn to Madilyn and say, "Did you hide it Madilyn?" She then walked over to the bookcase and starts pulling out books from one particular cubby. After all the books were removed we found a whole stash of things Madilyn has been hiding from Charlie. We were laughing so hard, because we found the whisk Tarilyn had been trying to find, a bottle, a bunch of straw spoon things, and a few other random things. Unfortunately the puzzle piece was not there, perhaps when Matt and Tarilyn are moving upstairs they will find more stashes of things Madilyn hid away.

And before Halloween I would give Madilyn a chocolate a day for a few days, and each time I noticed they were disappearing really fast. But I didn't think too much of it, so one time after I gave her a chocolate I saw her run behind the baby swing we had int he corner. I followed her over and saw that in the back pocket she has been saving all her little chocolates. She is honestly such a little squirrel. Well Taylor and I definitely got a kick out of it. She is so funny sometimes!!
