This weekend was awesome! We had a two day cheerleading competition and two of the three teams competing from our gym won 1st Place! Mackenzie's team name is Priceless and they did a fantastic job. They got 1st Place medals (even though they were the only Level 1 Youth team competing that day) and you would have thought they won the Olympics. I absolutely love seeing the girls out there competing and showing everyone how awesome they are. I couldn't be a prouder parent.
Maddie didn't compete this weekend. A normal five year old would have been dreaded sitting thru hour upon hour of watching other teams compete. Madison is not your typical five year old though. She is obsessed with cheerleading. She sat completely still (with the exception of the times she was cheering the teams on and yelling 'Go Pride') and watched every single team compete. She was perfect the entire time and kept being passed around from coach to coach and cheerleader to cheerleader. It's like she's the Pride mascot. They love stunting her because she's so little and she loves the attention.

March Madness

The year has just begun and it's already a hectic one! So much has happened, and will happen in 2009, it's sure to be a memorable time for all of us. My sister got engaged (woohoo) and is planning to get married next year, hopefully somewhere sunny and warm, the girls and I like to get our tans. : ) The girls and I are going to be in a wedding this September and couldn't be happier. (Love you Allie!!!) My BFF Chelle is giving birth TODAY!!! I can't wait to see little Conner. If Addy is any indication, he's going to be gorgeous!
This weekend Maddie had her first sleepover! She's had a friend spend the night before, but this was the first time she stayed over at a friend's house. It's hard to believe she's growing up. It was just last week that I had to, gasp, register her for Kindergarten. Just thinking about it makes me tear up, maybe I should schedule the entire first week off of work instead of just the first day?

I was lucky enough to spend part of this past Saturday with my adorable nephew Camden. He gets cuter every time I see him. He's crazy about Maddie, and I have a feeling it's because she's close to his size. LOL!

It seems like Spring has finally arrived so we took the opportunity to spend some time at the park yesterday. Mackenzie has decided to start rocking the side ponytail, wow, doesn't that bring back memories? It was a beautiful day, my goal for this year is to get outside more often with the girls. They love it, and it's very relaxing for me.
