Happy Sadie Day

January 1st for us is Sadie's birthday or Happy Sadie Day. This year she was really into singing "Happy Sadie". We had cake, that she helped make, at supper and then on Sunday the 4th we had the Grandpa and Grandma's over for a Happy Sadie Party.

~Sadie helped decorate her birthday cake, the family one. ~

We all just hung out and had cake and ice cream and Sadie got to open her presents. Her very favorite was her new "big girl" bed. Aarons mom and step-dad went and got her a new matteress, since we already had a frame. They also got her new bedding and the Veggie Tales Pirate movie. :) Daddy had to put the bed all together for her so that she could have it that night. She was just soo excited over it. She slept all night in it too. We didnt' have to pull her out of Kallie's bed. She still talks about her big girls bed. SHe is just so proud of it.

~ I now have 2 almost matching day beds in the girls' room~

I can't believe how fast the girls are growing. I never thought that I would have 2 twin beds in their room already! I figured I had awhile before that would happen. Kallie is potty-trained now and Sadie is trying her hardest. She want's to be a big girl so bad. I wish that they would stay little forever. :)

I've been crocheting the girls food for the kitchen set lately and I finally took a picture of my craftiness. :) So far they have 2 cupcakes, 2 ice cream cones, 2 couliflours, they had 2 broccoli's until Mya got one, 2 oreo cookies, 2 popcorns, and a bag of chips. Cheve got a hold of one of the chips so I think that there are only 7 now. The chips and bag are one of my favorites, I also love the broccoli and couliflours. They turned out so cute. Tabitha is supposed to be sending me over some more scrap yarns since I am running low. I've been having fun creating these fun foods for the girls and watching them play with them. I can't wait to make more.

THe girls LOVE their kitchen! Kallie was using pennies to "cook" with today. SHe would put them in a cup or bowl and stir them around. Silly girl!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!!

I can't belive that it is 2009 already!! And today is also special for us because it is also Sadie's birthday! She's 2 already!! Time sure goes by so fast. I remember coming home at 2am from a New Years get togther at Aaron's sisters and climbing into bed and having my water break and Sadie made her presence 5 hours later. She was 2 weeks early so it was a total surprise. I remember Aaron running around like a chicken with his head cut off trying to grab the stuff we needed to head to the hospital. Sadie was just ready to come now! She is still that way. It is Sadie's way and Sadie's time or nothing. She is so independant and has to do everything herself. I hear "NO ME" many times a day.

Today we are just relaxing at home. Kiri was alittle sweetheart and got up with the girls this morning (she spent the night so Aaron and I could go out), and let Aaron and I sleep in. She is such a big help with the girls when she is over. Aaron went to one of his coworkers to get some more wood for our wood furnace. The girls and I just played with their new kitchen set and I worked on crocheting more food for their kitchen. We are almost ready to eat here soon. Aaron is cooking Brats out on the grill and Sadie helped me make her a birthday cake we can have for dessert. We've been singing Happy Birthday to Sadie all day too. Sadie will now sing Happy Sadie. :)

I am really hoping to keep up with this more. I love reading Trees blog (my sister-in-law) and following up on their life and this way she can keep up on our lives too.

Happy New Year and Happy Sadie!!
Love you all!!
