I am Thankful for....

Yes...that is what Matthew said he was Thankful for!! LOL
Not "My Mummy and Daddy" like 90% of the other preschoolers!!

Today was Matthew's preschool Thanksgiving program and feast!! It was a great time...the kids were absolutely adorable singing their turkey songs. :)
The food as always was YUMMMMMMMMMY!!

We are so proud of our Little Indian Bubba fet {again with the Starwars thing}.
He sang his heart out and did the motions so well.

New baby cathcart...

Well...we have a new baby on the way!!

As of today i am 10 weeks and 3 days pregnant...i had an ultrasound done at 8 weeks and 6 days...so of course i had to scrap the picture for the baby book!!

We are very excited...
The kids {well Madison} is soooooooooooooo excited and talks about the baby all the time....Matthew doesn't really care that much...although he does ask me random questions every now and again like "How did the baby get in your tummy" LOL!! I think he is more excited than he lets on...plus it is still early and i am not showing yet so i think once my tummy gets bigger and he can feel it moving he will be a lot more excited. :)

So that is the reason i have not been scrapping....i have been TIRED and a little sick in the very beginning...but i am feeling great now.

Maddie lives here!!

When my sister was over in the summer she bought Madison a little shopping cart and of course the stuff to go in the shopping cart...food and such. Well it turns out that this is one of Madisons favorite toys EVER!! She plays with it everyday...this picture is something that is very common in our house...i am constantly moving plastic carrots and cans of fake food off every table or chair in the house!! LOL But i am always glad to see it...she has so much fun with it, she cooks and bakes and is always making me beans!!! LOL Thanks Auntie Janine and Uncle Andy for such a great gift..it keeps her entertained for HOURS!!! ;)

I forgot...

I forgot to tell you all the story of Matthews gorgeous birthday cake!!! LOL
My sister made a comment on it so that reminded me.
Every year for my kids birthdays i have decided to make their cake myself...i do not bake and have NO IDEA how to make a cake let alone how to make a cake "pretty"!! But i insist every year that i am going to make it...so this year was no different. I am not sure if you can tell from the pictures but my cakes are ALWAYS on a slant...my husband and I laugh so hard at this...i can never seem to get it right so he now calls it my "Signature look"....i can tell you that my cakes are always the talk of the party...and we always get a good laugh out of them....this year for added interest i put sprinkles on it....they hide a multitude of sins...well all they had were little ball ones. So i covered the top of the cake in them and then decided i wanted the sides to be covered in them too...so i tipped the cake as much as i could without it falling over {we can't have that now!!} and started shaking the bottle toward the edges...well the little balls went EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!! My kids thought it was GREAT....they were diving all over the floor catching them...for about 20 minutes or more they kept finding more....it was funny! So that's my cake story. Oh and the sprinkles were so hard...it was like eating cake with gravel!!! LOL But that was just something else to laugh about!!! hehe....
And just for the record....Matthew thought his cake was the best thing...i wonder how long i can convince him of that????!!! ;)

So Halloween was soooooooo fun this year!

Matthew wanted to be Spiderman and Madison wanted to be Dora {of course!}...we got Matthew his costume no problem...but Madison's costume was a little harder to get. We couldn't find actual Dora costumes anywhere...so we decided that we would just dress her up like Dora but then when we looked at pictures of Dora we noticed she wears shorts and tshirts and it is COLD here!! So that wasn't going to work real well...So as we are getting ready to head out the door for Trick or treating Madison decides she wants to be a BEAR!! LOL And we had a "Nala" costume upstairs from when she was wee little. So that settled it...she was a "bear". We had a bouncy castle and games and cookies and cider in our yard as part of our kids program on a Wednesday night! We had over 200 kids come by and enjoy the fun in our yard!!!


Can you believe Matthew is 5!!!!!!!!!!

Where has time gone?? He had several little parties...one with family and then one with the kids i watch then on the actual day of his birthday he invited 2 friends to Chuck E Cheese. All were very fun...and i have lots of pics to prove it!! LOL
He is already plannig his 6th birthday!!! LOL Always thinking ahead this kid!

Keep scrolling down to see Maddies new hair cut!!! ;)

DORA hair...

So Miss Madison got her hair cut!!
First hair cut EVER!

She was so excited to get her hair cut...so we talked about it and she decided she wanted a "Dora" hair cut. She is pretty much obsessed with Dora these days.

So we took her to the mall and she talked about it the whole way there. When we actually got to the hairdressers she FREAKED...cried and cried! The only thing that settled her was a SUCKER and sitting on Daddy's lap!! Her hair turned out so cute.
