Last Saturday the kids and I went and walked a 5k to help out my cousin Mindy's aunt who is in the hospital with cancer. We had so much fun! The kids favorite part was the wagon. They were all riding in it together! I also won a night at a hotel in a raffle! Perfect for me and Tom's anniversary next month! It was a great event for a great cause! What a fun day and my arm is still only a little sore from pulling the wagon :)

Maddie lost a tooth! Last night Maddison finally lost her first tooth. She has been waiting for this to happen for over a year now! She was SO excited!!! She even wrote a note to the tooth fairy and asked to keep her tooth to show me.
( I was at work) So the kind tooth fairy left the tooth and also $2!

Muffin Tin Monday!!!
Today we had an extra special lunch!!! We decided to do a dipping theme for today! We had cheese sticks dipped in marinara sauce, crackers dipped in yogurt, and apples dipped in caramel. We also got the kiddos end of summer presents. (Things they have been wanting all summer). Braden got roller skates and Maddison got a digital pet dog. They were so excited they couldn't wait to play with their new toys and continued to do so for the rest of the day! What a fun day home as a family!!!

Today I was looking at my kiddos and realized they are no longer my little babies but are now both big kids... I know it has been this way for a while but it still sneaks up and shocks me once and a while...
Wow! Braden is going to start pre-school next week! I can't believe it!!! On Wed. we met his teacher and got to check out the class room! He is sooo excited! I am crossing all my finger and toes he will do well...
Miss Maddie is also just growing and growing! She is becoming the most awesome big sis for Braden she loves to teach him songs, dances, letters and numbers. She is really enjoying playing with him now! She is also becoming quite the reader and writer and love spelling! She is a smarty!
I just thought I would take a minute to reflect...

We had our first offical Muffin Tin Monday today! the kids loved it! I decided to do an after school snack so Maddison could enjoy it too! It was circus theme today so I did animal crackers dipped in yogurt, peanuts, cinnamon bears, and licorice lion tamer whips. I also got them wind up circus toy figurines and animal shaped air fresheners for their rooms. (for some reason they LOVE air fresheners... I wonder where they got this obsession from?? ;) ) Also me and Braden did some shopping and had our first day of home pre-school... it went pretty good. I decided that I am going to supplement his public school preschool with some one on one time. I will talk more about this later... but I must run and go get ready for work.

Kids Command Central
This is my command central for my kids. We have a magnetic calendar on the top for activities, appt.s, and also the weather. Then we have the hooks for backpacks, umbrellas, and when it cools down a little more jackets. Then underneath we have homework bins, they have all the supplies we need to do our homework. In the winter I will get a drawer for each to put winter clothing in as well...
