Scooby Dooby Doo!

Macy has passed her LOVE for Scooby on to Brady! He walks around all day saying "cooby", carries one of Macy's Scooby stuffed animals (which, she was nice enough to give him one but of course he would rather have the other one), pulls out all of Macy's books until he finds all of the Scooby books, he also carries around a coloring page of Shaggy & Scooby that Macy colored. It is really cute!
So in celebration of how much we love Scooby Doo we carved him in Macy's perfect pumpkin.

Happy Halloween! Scooby Dooby Doo!

Camp Rock Birthday!!

Macy is really into Camp Rock and the Jonas Brothers so her Birthday party was Camp Rock. We had her party at Classic Skating and they did bounce houses and the jungle. Macy and 15 of her friends had a ton of fun! She got a ton of really cool presents, Thanks to everyone who came!

Happy Birthday Macy

It amazes me how time goes so quickly. Every year I make a slideshow of Macy and at the end I put a picture of her on her birthday, 1 year, 2 year, etc... and I can't believe that she is already 5 and even though she hasn't put on a whole lot of weight since she was 2, she has gotten taller and has a personality that is amazing to me.

I will say that year 4 has not been my favorite, watching her and helping her try to figure out who she is. Realizing that she has her own opinions, thoughts, reactions to things was hard for the both of us. I am hoping that this year will be a little smoother, if not then I am REALLY in for it in those teen years!!! :) Maybe it's karma.

I love my daughter with everything I have, I couldn't get through my days with out her. She fills my heart and she fills our home.

Happy Birthday Macy! We love you.

First Freaking Snow

NOT HAPPY when I woke up at 2 in the morning and saw snow, went back to bed hoping it was a terrible dream.

Unfortunetly for me it wasn't but Macy was so excited that it had snowed she immediately asked to put on her snow clothes and go outside. I haven't bought her a winter coat, gloves or hat yet BUT I did get her new snow boots! :) She went outside in her mismatched outfit and did a snow angel and threw multiple snowballs and her Daddy's....snowballs.

Sadly Brady had to stand inside watching his sister play. He made it perfectly clear he was upset.

Keeping Tradition

For as long as I can remember my Grandma would make "Halloween Cookies", they are molasses cookies which she would cover in orange frosting and then let us decorate. So in keeping tradition Macy, Brady and I decorated Halloween cookies (well Brady just kept picking up cookies and taking a bite out of each one). Macy had lots of fun being so creative. They are almost too sweet to eat and really they are the best without the frosting, but I wouldn't want to miss out on the memories.

Show and Tell

Yesterday Macy had Show and Tell at her school, it took her two days to figure out what she wanted to take! I thought for sure it would be Doggy since he DOESN'T leave her side unless she is at school but she said "No, my teachers have already met Doggy". As we were getting ready for school I told her she had to figure it out so we weren't scrambling at the last minute, and she asked me if she could take Brady. Oh! I thought that was the cutest thing ever! So Brady got to be his sisters show and tell. All of the kids thought he was so funny and cute.
