So apparently Maddison has her pick of Toni's boys. These three were inseparable.
Jacob and her have a little romance and they held hands the whole time except for when Sam moved in on Maddison and grabbed her for a little while.
MMMmmm should a three year old have to choose between her boys this early in life :)
Maddison in another darling outfit from Aunt Christ. She asks to wear this skirt every Sun and several times throughout the week.
We go for a walk every night and the other night it turned into a nature walk. We stop to look at the turtles, fish and ducks, then saw the fireflies and Dad caught one, then Mom stepped on a little garden snake and Dad chased it away. And of coarse we saw tons of rabbits.
So this is what happens when I ask Ryan to put Maddison down for Quiet time. I needed to run an errand and asked Ryan to put Maddison down for quiet time. Apparently, he was too tired to read Maddison stories so she read to him. They were both exhausted and by the time I got home they had both zonked out. Cute!

The other day we were having pancakes and eggs for dinner (I didn't want to cook.) and Ryan started a conversation with Maddison about where the eggs came from. So here is how it went...
Ry: Maddison where do chickens come from?
Ry: Then you mean you are eating a chicken?
Maddie: No I'm not.
Ry: But you just said chickens come from eggs.
Maddie: Mom is that true?
Mom: Yes but we are eating the eggs that are just meant for eating.
Maddie: See Dad these aren't chicken eggs.
Ry: But how do you know these are the eating eggs and not the chicken eggs.
Maddie: Dad there are two kinds of eggs brown and white. The brown ones become chickens and the white ones are eating eggs.
Ry: But won't the chickens miss their eggs?
Maddie: No because they just have lots and lots of eggs. Just don't worry about it Dad. I know what I am talking about.
It was so funny to hear her rationalize this whole egg thing. This is a very brief overview of the actual conversation that went on for about 15 minutes. She just had a logical explaination for everything. I just thought it was funny that she even knew about the brown verses white eggs. I don't remember ever telling her there were brown and white eggs. Oh well I guess it all just comes from the mouths of babes.

So for those of you who don't know - my husband is a die hard Red Sox Fan. We found out a few months ago that the Red Sox were playing here and we immediately bought the cheapest tickets we could find for Fri and Sat night. Which actually were REALLY cheap. We took the kids on Fri night and then we went again on Sat. Ryan was in Heaven. I was really glad we were able to fulfill this little dream of his. Despite all the hardships we have had lately, we were able to put them aside for one weekend and just enjoy. The kids were really cute at the game. Maddison kept yelling "Go Red Sox" and "Yankees 'pugh'"(she would pretend to spit.) She didn't really realize they were playing the Rangers. James just enjoyed the food and would say "Yeah" whenever we would clap. We had a great night. James put his sippy cup in the popcorn container and went at it.
Maddison was so excited to share this time with Daddy.
Girls just chillin.
James had a full fledge Red Sox outfit on. So cute.
Ok so we have given James little trims before but this was his first real haircut with the buzzer. He did pretty well and now we can spike it. That was the real reason I had Ryan cut it.
First encounter with the buzzer. He thought it was cool.
He is starting to wonder what is going on now.
How handsome. Ryan let him buzz some of his hair at the end.
