Bandages and Bird Feeders

Sophia and her daddy made some bird feeders for the yard. She was so excited to do this. She was all into it!

Okay, and now for the bandage part. Mr. Braeden came downstairs the other day looking kind of pale. He was very calm and holding his finger tight. He proceded to tell us how he cut his finger trying to destroy a pencil. I asked to see it and I got totally freaked out. And that in turn scared him. I thought for sure we were going to have to make a trip to the ER. But dad got him all fixed up and all was good. I just had to take pictures of the scene. I have to hand it to him he is very creative. He was upstairs trying to take care of things himself, making his own band-aid and all!

Braeden's make-shift band-aid...

I think this is much better...

Happy Sweet 16 Madison

I am officially the mom of a sixteen year old! Madison turned 16 yesterday. She is such a great kid! I am so proud to be her mom. I just adore her! She has some of the best qualities you could possibly want in a teenager! I am a little biased but it's true! I adore her! Keep reaching for the stars baby girl. Live out your dreams! They can come true! Just stay focused on God and He will keep your paths straight! I am enjoying this journey with you. It's just awesome!
We all went out to eat for dinner to celebrate. Yum Yum!

Then we came home for some Wii fun, gifts, and cake!

Love Bug

I was trying to get the perfect shot of Sophia for her birthday invitations. I got a lot of really cute ones. She's such a ham!

Turbie Twist

Do you remember these nifty little things? Several years ago they used to advertise them on TV. We had bought Madison some when she was younger. Sophie came across one and thinks it's the greatest thing. I have actually seen them recently but I think they call them something else.

Dinner Theater

The kids had a dinner theater at church last night to raise money for Winterfest. We had a wonderful turnout. I'm so excited that so many people wanted to come out and support our youth. We even had an auction! The kids were auctioned off to go and do some 'chores' for whoever bidded on them. Such a neat idea. I think all of the kids got a job. We even had a little bidding war going on:)

This little one got into some mascara! I guess she thought it was lipstick!
