more pics

i guess i'm on a roll with posting for another 5 month drought.

new pics

we celebrated my birthday with the josti family a little early this year because our friends, the hernandez family, are coming to visit from the dominican next week. here is the traditional pic of me with the birthday cake...and maddie waiting for hers. oh and a pic of the cutest aprons that katy (my sis) made for maddie and me.

maddie and i planted our seeds for our garden today to start indoors so they'll be ready when it's time to plant them outside. of course i waited too long to do this activity outside and it was rainy and cold's been mid to upper 50s the last few days and sunny. oh well...we made do with our plastic cover and the kitchen floor (C: maddie was such a good helper. she just needed a "few" instructions.

waiting to create mass destruction...
pat, pat, pat....gently maddie (C:
of course i waited until the smallest seeds to try and get a picture
good job, maddie!
pat, pat, pat...she was such a good helper...and no mass destruction!

not so new news...

we're going to have another baby girl! she's due july 21st. maddie is now pointing to my belly and saying sissy (can't quite say sister). she's going to be a great help and a great big sister. here are some ultrasound pics from 18 weeks. i'm 21 weeks now.

maddie's 2nd birthday

after a long day of flights and delays getting out of dallas, the whole family made it to boston to celebrate maddie's birthday (kara at 2 pm, katy and colin at 11:30 pm, and mom and dad at 4:30 am...yes that's right a.m.). we enjoyed a lazy friday except when working hard at making the awesome cake that was consumed on saturday at the party. we all went out to the josti lake house late afternoon for dinner and walking on the frozen pond. we had a great time and katy and colin started a few snow fights. saturday morning maddie and granddaddy made waffles for breakfast and we finished getting ready for the party (katy had stayed up all night finishing the cake decorations...she is amazing). the party was a blast and maddie thoroughly enjoyed her "mini-cake". she peeled the fondant off her cake like she peels her clementines and thought she was supposed to put it in the trash. she tried some and even shared some with mommy. but the cake was entirely hers...of course we didn't let her eat all of it. sunday was spent relaxing until we had to say our goodbyes and drive to the airport (never fun). all in all...a great time celebrating maddie's 2nd birthday.

here are the pics from maddie's 2nd birthday.
