Before I forget to mention it...the blanket Madalyn keeps wrapping herself up in was made for her bed in the camper by Grandma Benedict. She picked the colors out and Grandma got right to work. She is fast! I need to get a picture of both the girls with their blankets. For right now they are being stored here in the house, until we get the camper back and when they want to lay on the floor to watch a movie or take a nap, its the first blankets they grab! They love them and can't wait to use them in the camper!
(Hopefully sooner rather than later)
I was bad on getting the camera out first thing in the morning and didn't get pictures, but Grandma and Aunt Laurie came down and brought Madalyn her blanket and cards and added to her birthday stash for something big to purchase as well :) She can't wait to spend it, but "doesn't want to waste it" so she is thinking hard of something special. :)
Now onto the evening festivities....We waited for Daddy to get home from work to do presents and cake so the lighting is a little off since it was evening and we don't have good lighting in our living room. Anyhow, Grandma and Grandpa came down to join in, too and helped us eat some cake ;)
Of course we had to do presents first....she had been so patient all day!
She was very excited about the black rubber bands!
She had never seen Zinkies before ;)
I love this picture!
Madalyn and Grandma were figuring out the "house" together :)
See how little they are? She is holding one in her hand!
The set came with a magnifying glass and a pair of "pliers" so you could place the animals easier! I couldn't believe how little they were!
Marissa said we had to sing with the lights off. I wasn't going to upload this video because its so dark, but the candles look so cool!
Orange Jello Cake :)
I can't believe my little peanut is 7! I know you always say it feels like yesterday but it really does. We pulled out one of her preemie outfits that she was swimming in when we brought her home from the NICU and showed it to her. Absolutely crazy! I'm so thankful that today I have a healthy, growing, full of spunk, yet tender and loving little girl!
