She's SIX!!!!

It's so hard to believe that this sweet little baby is SIX years old today.
Where did the time go?? Well, let's take a stroll down Madeline lane:


1st Birthday, 2003


2nd birthday........2004


3rd birthday.......2005


4th birthday....2006

That's all the pictures Blogger would let me post. To see pics from last year, click on March 2007 on the right hand side of this blog. I'll post more pictures of the birthday girl soon. She's got a busy day planned......her birthday, egg hunt at our house for her kindergarten class, ear piercing (she says...we'll see), and a birthday dinner at Chili's. All that to be topped off with some cake and presents at home.

Happy Birthday, Madeline. We love you so much!!

Birthday Party

The girls had their High School Musical birthday party at the bowling alley on Saturday.


They seemed to have a good time.


It was quite comical watching the smaller kids bowl!


Blowing out the candles on their cake.


Opening presents........probably their favorite part of the party! Both girls came home with lots of new toys!

Dear Abby


Saturday was one of the most difficult days that I have ever encountered. I had to say goodbye to you. It was much harder than I ever imagined, but I knew you were uncomfortable and it was time. You were so brave and I tried to be. My heart is broken and I miss you. You were my girl for almost 13 years and I loved you. I know you will have so much fun chasing rabbits and squirrels in doggie heaven and can eat to your little beagle heart's content. Thank you for loving me and letting me be your "mama".
Rest In Peace, Abby!

Countdown to Spring

With the spring-like weather that we've had lately, the girls have taken advantage of it by playing outside.
They love playing in the dogwood tree in our front yard.
And it makes for some good photo ops!
