Last Day of 2012-2013 MDO

Our girls had their last day of MDO and oh how they have changed.  

Landry used to hate going to class.  She would cry and cry when we dropped her off.  She grew to love going and would just walk right in and get to playing with her little friends.

Addison has progressed so much since day one.  We had our "first parent-teacher conference" before her last day and it was interesting to see how much she has learned over a nine month period.  I can't believe she'll be in Kindergarten in a year.  

We are so thankful for their teachers and the passion they have for our children's learning for both the Lord and school work.

Mommy likes to ...

What????  That makes me sad.  I just had to document this.  I don't know where she got this and it saddens me that she thinks my favorite thing to do is work.  I'd say that spending time with my family is much more appealing.

Mother's Day Program

I was invited by Addison and Landry to a Mother's Day Party at the MDO program they attend.  The theme was Western, so the girls dressed up that morning in their cowgirl hats (dollar tree hats hot glued to a head band to stay on their itty bitty heads) and I came later that afternoon with mine.  It was so cute.

As I walked in the door, one of Addison's teachers saw me and said "I'm so glad you came.  Addison kept saying all morning that you weren't coming because you had to work."  Well that about broke my heart and I knew that I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.  This smile tells it all.  She was proud that her mommy made it.

Landry's class did the prayer before we had lunch.  It was so cute.  That's her in the blue shirt in the middle.  Bad picture.
Compared to the Christmas program in December, Addison has come a long way.  You can't tell with the arms crossed, because she's telling me that I'm supposed to be sitting in my chair and not taking pictures.  I don't know if this girl will ever break the rules.  I know that will come in handy when she's 16, but now she just sounds bossy.  She sang every song and did the dance.  I was so proud.

Landry did not want to take a picture.  Isn't it always like this?  One smiles and the other one doesn't.  
I couldn't be more proud to be their mommy.  I wouldn't trade it for anything.  God continues to bless our family.  He's so good.  The MDO program they attended has been great.  The girls have blossomed and grown so much (spiritually, knowledge, etc.).  Tears....

Mommy Time

Our girls love each other but there are times when they just need some time away from each other.  Jordan and I have decided that we need to spend time with each of them apart.  They love the attention and it's a good way for us to bond with them.  

So last weekend, I needed to run some errands and big sister got to assist me.  She was so excited.  This grin on her face didn't leave the entire afternoon.  We ran in to Dillards for a few minutes and I told her she could pick out some clothes.  She looked and looked and came up with a Hello Kitty purse.  Really?  She went to the counter like a big girl and paid for the purse and quickly asked "Can we go home?  I want to show my Daddy."  

Jordan's grandmother, Nina told me when we had Addison that my job was to help her to love her Daddy because a child would always love their mother.  I have to say, this little girl loves her daddy to pieces.  I have done my best to love her daddy but her daddy has done most of it on his own.  He loves his girls so much and they think he is coolest dad.

Thank you Addison for always being such a loving, caring little girl.  You have a heart of gold.  You get your Type A for your daddy mainly but some from me too.  You are our rule follower and people pleaser.  I have a big post for your 4th birthday that I will share a little more of your characteristics at 4. Love you!!!

Good Eatin'

We grilled out this weekend and one thing our girls love is corn on the cob.  There's nothing like cooking out on the grill, good weather, and family time.

Gold Cup

Our Gold Cup Winner!!!

Jordan found out in March that he had obtained "Gold Cup" for his company.  That means that we will be headed to Hawaii soon
