Maddox has been getting around for months now. In fact, he started crawling sometime in the 7th month and was cruising everywhere by the 8th month. We had to act quickly and baby-proof our home. We thought all was good. Until tonight when Maddox was very quiet and I found him in the pantry. BUSTED! He had pulled out his own snack (Gerber Puffs), opened the lid, poured himself some (onto the floor) and was enjoying. What a stinker this kid is!

And I promise we do feed him. When I found him, I was laughing and thinking, "Poor baby, I would have given you a snack if I had known you were hungry!"

Happy New Year

We rang in the new year with a whole bunch of great friends and kids at 6 PM -- new year kids' style! There was a bounce house. We grilled out hamburgers & hot dogs and had a new years celebration cake/cupcakes. Before 6 PM, we all went to the front and the kids had on party hats, were given noise makers and horns, there were confetti poppers, and bubble wrap! The bubble wrap was for our bubble wrap stomp; we counted down (10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1, Happy New Year) and then all the kids made noise and stomped all over the bubble wrap. It was a lot of fun and a great way to start the new year.

We hope you and your family have a super 2009 filled with lots of blessings!
