Blast From the Past!

Okay, SO I was going through our pictures throughout the years.. and came across A TON ( I am not even kidding..) of Madilyn that just brought back so many memories! I can't believe how fast time goes by, it just seems like yesterday I was holding her for the first time. I love it, she has been such a joy in our lives. I wanted to share the memories with you.. I hope you enjoy!
Again.. there are like over 100 pictures...

I know you all probably get tired of me complaining about our house not selling. It is just hard! I know we are suppose to be here for a reason. I just thought it would have been before now! It is mostly because the market is crazy and really it is in the Lords hands. I REALLY have been down now that I found the house I absolutely love! I know I say that about a lot of homes, but this one is very cute! It is in Lehi (closer to Sam's work and median for both of us) 3,500 SF 4 beds 3 baths, plus a loft upstairs that could be made into a bedroom. Perfect size for us! We wouldn't need to move for a while!! haha Anyways.. here is the picture:

It is a little hard to see because of the sprinklers. I think it must have been up for a while (hence the date) Now it is a bank owned one. One day! I just keep praying it will happen soon! HOPEFULLY before Maddy's birthday so that we can actually have it inside instead of outside in the extreme hot!
Anyway, enough of my complaining, I am just grateful for being in a home, and that we aren't being forced out. That is all I can ask for! Here is a picture of our home now! It isn't so bad!!

Maddy's First Day of Dance

Maddy Started Dance last night! She is taking Ballet & Tap through Becky's School of Dance. Miss Marcee (my cousin) is her teacher. I was nervous on how she would do.. she had been having some accidents this past weekend. I kept telling her that she could not take dance with Marcee if she kept having accidents. She was determined NOT to have another accident. We got there and all she could do was say "Where is Marcee! Where is Marcee! I need to Dance with Marcee!" However the way she said it sounded more like Maercey. She looked so cute in her leotard and ballet shoes. She did surprisingly well. At first I went out on the floor with her and helped her with stretches etc. Then she got the hang of it and I sat on the side of the room watching. She did well! I am excited to see how she does in the coming weeks!
(Some of the pictures didn't turn out so well. I think it is because of the glare from the floor)

Ella's First Haircut!

This one is one of my favorites! They put the cute bows in.

On Saturday the 27th of December we took Ella in for her first hair cut at Petsmart! She was so funny, when we took her in the store she loved seeing all of the different dogs. Once she was finished and home, she kind of just looked like... what just happened!!

Day After Christmas Storm!

All I can say is WOW! There was a lot of snow.. and it just kept coming and coming! Madilyn wanted to go out and play in the snow, so we got her all bundled up for it. She reminded me of Randy from The Christmas Story.. falling in the snow and can't get up! She was too cute. Ella had a blast, she looked like the abominable snowman with all the snow stuck to her face. She really enjoyed being outside. She somtimes got stuck and so far in that we could tell where she was at!
