Last night 8 of my friends from high school hosted an engagement party for one of my closet friends during high school. It turned out wonderful! Congrats, Leah!

I have been waiting to take Mason's picture in the Jumperoo for weeks because I had a wonderful closeup picture of Madi at 3 months 3 weeks. This was the week for the picture! Besides the obvious girlish outfit that Madi has on (pink with white polkadots), could you tell the difference?

This past weekend, we departed from the Friday night norm - eating at The Depot in Helena (www.helenadepot.com) - and ate there on Thursday night instead. So Friday night we went to Habaneros in Alabaster. When we got home we heard fireworks. Madi claimed that she "don't like those fireworks. Fireworks scare me. I go inside and those fireworks won't scare me." We were concerend about Saturday night knowing that there would be fireworks within 50 yards of us. We also started Mason on Nutramigen Hypoallergenic formula in hopes that it would really stop colic within 48 hours (the claim on the package). Friday night he did not cry at all. He smiled, he cooed, he giggled...and no crying!
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup b
1 cup powdered sugar
3 cups milk
1 (12 oz.) tub Cool Whip (can
2 (3 1/2 oz
1/2 tsp. vanilla
4 gummy worms and/or other
After cooking our Dirt Cake, we drove to Palmerdale, Alabama to my Aunt Peggy's house for a family gettogether. Madi really wanted to drive the boat on Emerald Lake, but we were unable to get in cranked.
We left Peggy's house around 1:30 headed to Florence, Alabama to visit with Brit's family. I had not been to Florence since Christmas because of Mason and this was Mason's first trip. It was fairly uneventful trip - both kids slept most of the way! We ate supper at Aunt Janice's house and
Madi played on a slip-n-slide for the first time. She REALLY loved it. We left Janice's house to watch fireworks at Aunt Connie's house. Madi was initially scared, but ended up having a good time watching the fireworks too. Sunday we went to church and then to Chuckie Cheese's...also a first for Madi! No more ball pits at Chuckie Cheese's though :( but it was still fun.
Mason has still not had a single colic symptom - YAY!
