Last Week

We made playdo this last week, Lexie is loving it and playing with it daily!!

I was getting out of the shower and I heard Lexie say "Madilynns wet........I'll change did it!" I couldn't get dry fast enough and this is what I found.....

Yes Maddie is eating a diaper, luckily it was the clean one. Although by the time I got there Madilynn had peed all over her play mat. First changing experience alone and the last one for a while I hope!
We also went to our annual pumpkin carving party at Becky's. Madilynn was having a tough night and I'm glad Alex got the camera out to take these pictures or we would have had none. I didn't even carve my year will be better!

Homemade Bath Paints

Lexie had so much fun making bath paints and just as much fun using them in the tub tonight. She was in the tub at least 20 minutes longer than normal, it was awesome! Here are the directions of how to make it.

1 C liquid body wash (cheapest one you can find that is clear or white)
6-10 TBS Cornstarch
Food color
Just mix the wash and cornstarch until it's the thickness you want. Put it into containers with lids and add food coloring. We had containers for red, yellow and blue from a Christmas set she got and just found one for the green.

  Sorry there are no pictures of her using them, but trust me she loved them!

Lexie's ballet class got to wear their Halloween costumes today and boy was she excited!!! She LOVES being a princess. She had a great time at class, she really loves it!


The girls took a bath tonight and I thought they were so cute in their hoodie towels. Lexie wasn't in the tub too long as you can tell by her dirty face!!

Rice Cereal

We gave Madilynn rice cereal for the first time last night. At the beginning she seemed really interested and was even grabbing for the food as it came towards her, but that didn't last long. She boycotted the spoon very quickly. We'll keep trying.

Little people of America

We got to go to our very first LPA Regional this weekend, it was in Sacramento. We had a great time and met some of my FB friends for reals!! I wish we would have taken more pictures, but you know how it can be!! We met up with Scott and Courtney for dinner Friday night cause there wasn't anything really planned at the LPA get together!

Lexie is standing in front of the LPA sign although you can't really see it.

Saturday night was a banquet and dance, Lexie made friends and played ring around the roses. 

This is Maggie and James, James is 1 month older than Madilynn.

The Robot, yeah she brings it out often!!!

This is Jaime, one of the first people I made contact with in the LPA family. I think she was the first person I called actually with questions and her and her daughter Katie came and visited us when we had Madilynn.

Around our house lately!

Lexie loves it when Madilynn gets a bottle, she wants to feed her all the time!! It's really cute to see Lexie wanting to help even now, 5 months later. What a great big sister she is!

This is what you will see everyday at our house!! CRAFTS, CRAFTS, CRAFTS. Cutting, painting, coloring, gluing, you name it Lexie wants to do it and usually makes a mess of things in the process!
