Maddie's hair is too long... she finally got her hair cut a few days later. :)
Mike & the guys took Katie with them to a shooting range on Saturday afternoon. The girl can shoot to our amazement! Mike's chalking it up to his genes, and I'm chalking it up to my genes. I can shoot too.... I won the best girl shooter for summer camp @ SEP when I was 15! I'll have to take a picture of her target.... she hit a ton in the 1's and 2's range! If you turn it sideways, it has the form of a K.. for Katie! Smart girl! Looks like Mike found his hunting partner!

Madison & my grandma
Yes, Madison keeps us on our toes. From throwing spaghetti all over the walls and ceilings when I stepped away for 10 seconds, to emptying the salt shaker all over the table, and playing in the mud, and pulling all my flowers out of their flower pots ... and when she got into the lotion in her crib... she always makes life interesting for us. She is a quiet little stinker, and when she was little, if she was quiet for too long, you knew she was up to no good. She loves to listen to music, and would bop along quietly. She loved to jabber, and would always talk to us in "Maddie" language. We would have no clue what she was telling us, but it was fun interacting with her! Maddie loves the camera, and you can easily tell in these pictures the amazing smile in her eyes, and she always says "CHEESE".

This past Saturday the girls & I wanted to try a new trail. We decided to go the longest trail there was in this park. It was about 2.43 miles long, and goes on the outside of the park. We start walking. After walking for about 3-5 minutes, we approach this sign that says in big letters:

I saw this on another website, a coupon from Goody hair stuff that's $2.00 off! I printed off two, and used them at Walmart & Target yesterday. It has to be used on "Ouchless" stuff. The package of 17 bands were $2.19, so you end up paying 19 cents for a package of holders. They print out great, and the stores were able to scan them fine (I'm sure if you go to Walmart and do the "check out yourself" feature, you could use as many coupons as you wanted at a time).
If your girls are still babies, stock up... you can't beat 19 cents. :)
It's a GOOD thing!!

forcing a smile from Daddy.... we'll never get a great picture from him
I will not show all the stupid pictures Maddie & I had...
These girls were AWESOME dancers, so it was great competition for Katie to be in. She placed a 3rd in her fling, and a 5th in her Swords... very low for her, but hey, she got a 3rd! I think that was our last competition for a long, long time. :(
Come on kid! A decent picture of me and you're not smiling?
Maddie & Miss Lilly.... soccer girl & angel

ATTACK OF THE LITTLE SISTER!!
Halloween was fun, but quiet for us. We joined the neighborhood party for a few hours, then we took off with Lilly (Maddie's BFF) and her mom & little brother. I guess there are these "things" cuchoo something that are made out of egg shells, confetti & tissue paper. You crack them over a person's head, and it goes all over the place (the confetti does). The girls had a blast experiencing with these.
Funny story about this picture... the tickets to the games were supposed to be a quarter a piece. We arrive, and they're a dollar instead. I only brought $3 with me, figuring they would get enough to play with w/ $3.00. Well, we bought 3 tickets, and Katie used one of those tickets on these stupid boxes..... I had a whole bunch at home she could've played in if I knew how happy it made her. ::rolling eyes::
