Happy 5th Birthday Madelyn Grayce

Since Madelyn and Grandpa share a birthday as well as Easter being on their special day we celebrated it a day early.

enjoying every minute with mommy, Nana, and Grandma. Also Brit and Brynn across

nice massage and pink toes couldn't get any better

waiting for our toes to dry

off to play for a bit before getting ears pierced


very nervous especially since the girl said "ok you need to give me your nose" she started to cry and said "I don't want to pierce my nose" it was too cute

All Done! "That's it" It didn't even pinch her at all

Madelyn and her sparkle earrings with the girls (missing mindie)

CHANGES where do I begin... from major surgery, becoming a year older, and moving we have had a lot going on in the last few months.

Trey Surgery

For the longest time we haven't been able to figure out Trey and his speech issues that was until one Dr. visit would change everything. Trey would snore every time he sleeps and wouldn't always answer to us. After that Dr. appt Trey needed his adnoids and tonsils out, as well as tubes put in his ears. The surgery took place at Bellevue Childrens Hospital we had the best care and the surgery was a success.

The recovery was a little rough but "All Done"

snuggling with Mommy


It was very hard to leave Mom (Grandma)
and our friends but excited for our adventure

On March 5th we ended one journey in Seattle WA and began another in Vancouver WA, for me it was a familier place to live but for Chad and the kids it was a whole new experience. We are very fortunate to be close to family and thanks to a fabulous Nana watching the kids 3x a week so Chad can work at Vancouver Rehabilitation and Therapy Center and do what he loves to do, as well as getting closer to our main goal which is PT School fall 2012. I also am working at Vancouver Elite Gymnastics Academy and loving every minute of coaching and doing what I love to do.
We are settling in fairly well and loving the time we get to spend with friends we haven't seen in a long time and family.

Birthday Celebrations

This year I got a shopping spree from Mom at my fav store Maurices

Nicole, Mom, me, Jen, and Connie with our amazing clothes

It was a fabulous and fun night, after closing the store they opened it just for us two more hours and waiting in our rooms were clothes both out on the floor and some not out yet to try on in our sizes and style. These ladies were so fun to shop with cant wait to go back.

Thank you Mom for a GREAT birthday night...
