Cool Slideshows!

Monday, January 25, 2010

Old memories are just flooding through my mind today as I clean out files from an old computer. I found this video of Madison (aka Jaimee from Texas) that won her a spot on the Disney Rockin' New Years Eve broadcast 2007.

Bears Cheer

So, the girls coach was out of town this week and Jessica has class on Wednesdays so I tried to teach the girls a new Hello Cheer. I was impressed that they got as much of it as they did in one practice! Now, with a bit more practice, they will get it perfect! Uniforms and pom poms will also add to the total effect!
Nonetheless, they are cute!

Mother's Day Message

I never blogged about my Mother's Day! And, I have been wanting to mention it. This year, the girls gave me a Mother's ring which was included in the special card they made. Madison even made her own super special card for me.

Then, the girls spent the day with me, just hanging out, watching movies, talking, and eating. I loved everything about the day; it was perfect!

I love my Mother's ring. After all, I have been a mother for over 21 years now, I think I earned it!!! Yes. That's right, TWENTY-ONE and counting.

Anyhow, kudos to my Three Girls From Heaven on a wonderful Mother's Day and a special memorable gift!

Secret Helpers!

Tonight, while I was working on a project in my room, Madison and her friend Brianna asked to bake a cake. Since Madison has done this several times, I said it was fine and stayed in my room, just listening. After a little while, I began to realize that I didn't smell the cake yet. Instead I was smelling something else. Although I was hesitant to ask, I called Madison in my room to ask if she needed help. She assured me that everything was "under control" and that the cake was almost done. About an hour after this venture began, both girls returned to my room with a scarf to cover my eyes.

Apparently the "cake" was a surprise. When I was walked into the kitchen (blindfolded) they uncovered my eyes to show me a clean kitchen with a special treat. They made Rice Krispy Treats.

The message read, "I (heart) love U. There was a #1 on the Rice Krispy Treat but it was written with food coloring so it accidentally smeared.

Both girls worked really hard and I am very proud of their willingness to provide an act of love without being asked! It was very sweet and they did a great job cleaning the kitchen!

**Big points for Madison and Brianna!
