Photo Shoot!

For those of you non-Facebookers, here are the pictures from the photo session I had done with the girls a couple of months ago. These are Macey's 3 month and Maddie's 3 year photos...

Maddie was bribed with a cookie from Martha Green's bakery next door and she gave some great smiles out. I am not ashamed to admit I bribe my children.

Macey and those cheeks! I love her dimple and I love that she's sitting in a miniature leather chair. So cute. 

I don't love this picture of the girls together, but with a 2 year old and a 3 month old, I guess you get what you get. Just prior to this photo, Maddie forgot she was supposed to hold onto Macey. Macey toppled over & the crying started. Neither one of them was very happy at this point. Oh well. I do love that Maddie's cheek is resting on Macey's head. She loves to snuggle her sister and she is very protective of her.

I love having girls and I love that they each have a sister. I thoroughly enjoy hunting around for matching clothes for them - they are so adorable and fun to dress up!

Happy 3rd Birthday Maddie!

Three years ago today....

On Saturday, August 2nd, 2008 at 12:05am, I became a mother. We were happy before we had our girls, but we never imagined how full our lives would be with them in our family.

Maddie is a little piece of heaven in our family. She has summery blond hair, big dark brown eyes, and the thickest, darkest, longest eyelashes I have ever seen. She looks like me, but is 100% Brandon. She is super intelligent, very stubborn, and extremely independent. She is constantly happy, innocently curious, brutally honest, filled with Christlike love, is in love with her little sister, is smart as a whip, notices and remembers EVERYTHING, and has us wrapped around her finger. When she is happy, the joy in our home is indescribable. When she is sad, our hearts break and we want to fix it to make her world right again. Maddie is such a gift from our Heavenly Father and we are so blessed to have one of his sweetest spirits in our family.

Happy third birthday love bug!
You are our world and we love you so much!
