Madden is really making us laugh lately. His favorite word is "OK", but how he says it is too funny. It comes off as an annoyed, "Ohh - KAAYYYY". For example:
"Madden, it's bathtime"
"Come on, you can have the shark towel :)"
"Ohh - KAYYYY! Ohh - KAYYYY!"
Mariah's favorite activity lately is writing letters and drawing pictures for her daycare friends. She spends many hours with her paper and markers creating some pretty cool art :)
We also had conferences for Mariah last week. She's doing so good! Her report card was great - she knows all her shapes and colors, it starting to recognize some letters, follows directions and plays well with her friends! We couldn't be more proud of her :)
Mariah also wrote her name by herself for the first time this week!
Not much new with Mike & I. I am in the process of recovering our kitchen table chairs - and thankfully Mike is handy with a screwdriver and could assist me in this project that I know he is SO excited about ;)
Mariah's best quotes seem to come when we are all in the car. This week was no exception!
Out of nowhere Mariah said "Guys, this is just NOT my day."
Weekend of 10/12 to 10/13
GETTING ALL HALLOWEEN-Y!
On Saturday morning we gathered up a couple superheroes and brought them to the Mel Foster Pumpkin Day. They had fun checking out the petting zoo, playing games, getting candy and of course picking out some pumpkins!
Sunday we painted our pumpkins and also made some fun "SOCK PUMPKINS"!
We ended the weekend with some cookie baking - the little monster eye cookies were so fun and easy!
Weekend of 10/19 to 10/20
PIRATES, PRINCESSES, PARTIES & PICTURES!
Friday afternoon we saw Disney Pirates and Princesses at the iwireless center.
Mariah was the perfect age and really loved it!
Madden got a little stir-crazy in the second half (once the food ran out). :)
Saturday we headed to Dubuque for Hunter's 4th bithday party! The kids played hard and had fun!
Sunday we got our fall family photos done!
Here's an out-take for good measure :)
MOVIE NIGHT! :)
