Our Little Miss Sariah

Well, we took Sariah to take pictures for her 8th birthday and we just picked them up today. Looking at how beautiful her pictures turned out, we just wanted to post a few of them and write about this little girl of ours. It's hard to believe that she's already eight years old!! We honestly do not know where the time goes, and sadly it does so all too quickly. We are so thankful to have Sariah as our daughter and it amazes us how much of a "little adult" she can be. We know it's not easy being the oldest and Sariah does so many things for us as her parents and for her little sister as well. She is so obedient and loving and we couldn't have asked for more. We love you Riah! Ü

♥ Sweetheart's Day ♥

Fred & I usually think Valentine's Day is a bit overrated...and it usually is! But this year we decided that we would make it a family day and take our girls to Downtown Disney. We checked out the stores and bought a few things... and then we took the girls to the Build-a-Bear Workshop. They had a BLAST! They picked out a stuffed animal, then stuffed it, fluffed it up and picked out the outfit they wanted. It turned out really adorable and the girls were very happy.

We ended the night by having dinner at one of the restaurants there which was the Rainforest Cafe. It was great! The ceiling and walls were absolutely covered in vines and 'animals' hung from all of the place. The decor in the restaurant was really outstanding and the food was pretty good as well. It's definately fun to see the animals "come to life" every 1/2 hour or so...even though Mady was super scared (since we were sitting right next to the Gorillas) lol. All in all it was another great evening out with our little family....and that's always fun. Ü

A Big Day for Mady!

She did it!! Today, Mady actually used the potty...and more than once! She's actually been using the potty for #2 for several weeks now, but she hadn't done it when she needed to pee-pee...until today! It started when she was walking pretty funny...You know, the quick-paced walk with your legs somewhat clenched together. lol...so I knew she wanted to go, but she didn't say. Well, I sat her on her potty and she kept squirming and wiggling and saying that she was scared! huh!...go figure...scared to tinkle, but not to poop?! lol Well I told her that it was okay and that she needed to "go". The next thing you know, she burst into tears, but started to tinkle!!! haha She stopped crying in like 2 seconds when she realized she was peeing and starting cheering for herself. :0) Well we're pretty confident that she has officially been potty trained (minus sleeping over-night lol) since she did it 3 more times after that. We're so proud of her, but deep inside I'm secretly sad that my little baby is growing up. :0( Well....you know what that means! Ü
