Madelyn's 3rd Birthday!

A few months ago I decided that I wanted to have a carnival party for Madelyn's 3rd birthday. So...the plans began. I pictured this outdoor carnival in my backyard, parents and kids wandering out from game to game, eating carnival food, and having a good old time. After all the planning and preparation, the day came and at the last minute, it was too windy to set up. So we crammed 40 people in my house, and tried to still eat and play all the games. To say the least it was a "circus". But it was a lot of crazy fun! We had corn dogs, nachos, giant pretzels, popcorn, and drinks for dinner. Ty was tying balloons for the kids while they were eating and playing games. Madelyn had such a good time! We had the pleasure of our friends Tim and Kim Shirley there taking pictures of the whole thing. They did such a great job! Thank you to all that came and celebrated Madelyn's birthday. We'll never forget it or the mess that was left to cleanup afterwards...Enjoy the pictures. For more information about Tim & Kim Photography, visit the link to their photography blog.

Madelyn's 1st Day of Preschool

Madelyn is now going to preschool called Discovery Corner Preschool and she loves it! Her teachers name is Miss Dawn and she gets so excited to go every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. She is learning a lot and has met a lot of new little friends. To be honest, it's a nice little break for me too, because Audrey naps the whole time Madelyn is gone, it's fantastic! Anyway, here a few photos from the 1st day.
