Let's make a deal

Lately, Madisyn loves to try to make deals with us. We’ll ask her to do something, like pick up her toys, and she’ll say, “Okay, I’ll pick up my toys and then I can get a treat, that’ll be the deal?” It’s so cute that I tend to give in more often than not.

Or she’ll ask for something, like chicken nuggets for dinner, and we’ll say, “No, not today, we’re going to have spaghetti for dinner.”

She’ll reply, “Okay, first I’ll have pasketti and THEN I can have chicken nuggets, that’ll be the deal?” :) She’s our little optimistic.

Little boy Landon, as I like to call him, has been trying to talk lately. He babbles (i.e. mamama, dadada, nanana, ooooooo, etc…) and lately he’s begun to try to say “Uh oh.” Occasionally it’s “Uh oh,” but more often is “ugh (soft) OH (loud)” It’s fun to hear him try. He also loves waving when people say “Hi” or “Bye.”

He’s still creeping along furniture and doesn’t seem too eager to take steps on his own (although Rob swears that he took a step by accident the other day).

Playworld sounds fun! A Saturday would actually be great since Matt's usually working then (gotta love the car business!) We want to have you guys over one of these weekends too...let us know if you're ever looking for something to do. We could eat dinner and let the kids play.

We are a busy family of five! I enjoy time with my husband and kids, running, being outdoors, shopping for deals, and cuddling. My wonderful husband keeps busy playing with the kiddos, hunting, fishing, exercising and working on projects around the house. Madisyn is six, in 1st grade, loves being outdoors and isn't one bit afraid of bugs or worms! Landon is four, a spitting image of Daddy, and is the sweetest, naughtiest and funniest little boy, all in one! Tinley was born February 24, 2012 and has already blessed us beyond belief! Here's a glimpse into our crazy and wonderful lives... hope you enjoy!

I've finally decided to make a blog (Tiece of cake) dedicated to cakes... as to not consume the family blog.
