Happy Birthday Dear Madelyn

I cannot believe my baby girl is growing up! Today my 2nd daughter turned 11.  When our sweet Madie was born she was such a quiet baby.  She hardly made a peep.  Then she turned two and we realized what a firecracker we were going to have!  She has kept us on our toes ever since.  I am so grateful she is in our family.  She is totally a mini me!  :)        

I started out the day by making her what she requested for her birthday breakfast in bed which was homemade crepes, powdered donuts, fresh fruit and chocolate milk.
In my family I started the tradition for my girls to get their ears pierced at 11.  I figured that my girls would be old enough to take care of their ears by themselves at that age.  My oldest daughter did great with it and I know that Madie will, too.
Check out this AWESOME cake that my 15 year old friend, Rachael, from church made for Madie's birthday.  It is incredible!!!  

Well, today wasn't a good day to start on goodie bags for the party.  I just didn't have the time.  I was planning on adding a saying on the side next to the puppy but didn't get the chance.  The girls still loved them, though.  The cute dog is from Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge.  


I love you my sweet, dear Madelyn!!

  46. Isn't it amazing to watch your sweet daughter turn into a young woman? We've had two daughters, and by the time they were 13, it was apparent what they were going to look like as they continued to mature and gain confidence. Now they boss me around!

  66. My husband is overseas and I dont think theres anything more special than a special card that the kids made for him, delivered to him, that would make him smile ear to ear.Other wives would certainly be using it as we are all waiting for our men to return. The kids are excited to watch your show!
