After being told I would never be able to have children, I am now a stay-at-home Mommy to Maddie who happens to have Down Syndrome. I've been married 16 years to my best friend, having the time of my life. Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our little journey through life.

Maddie's cousins in Kansas City will not want to see this post until after we open presents! We will leave tomorrow and head to KC to have Christmas with Kyle's family. Remember this post when I was working on some sewing projects?  I finally finished up the last gift yesterday.  This is what I made the girls...

Maddie modeled for me, and now I'm afraid when the girls open their gifts she's going to think they are hers!  She really enjoyed playing with them so I guess I'll add:  sew Maddie an apron and chef's hat to my list of things to do! : ) 


  1. Yesterday I decided to go into the play room and model "play cooking" for the girls. I put on the hat and the apron and talked to myself and played and played until - from out of nowhere - I had two little helpers playing with me, too. Later, after I sneaked away, I peaked back in and they had their baker's hats and aprons on and were playing so cute. I wish I had a camera!

  2. That is so sweet! I'm definitely going to have to make Maddie a set now too. Sounds like the girls are having a lot of fun. : )
