Four Years Ago Today….

Today was the big 4th anniversary for Nick and I!  Sometimes it seems like we have been together forever and other times I can’t believe four years have already come and gone. 

Here we were on our special day.

Tonight we spent in a very romantic way. It all started with a fabulous trip to Lawton with a chatty Madeline in the backseat. Then we headed to Sam’s for a quick tire rotation and snack supply refill.  We had hors d'oeuvres at Sam’s. YUM! Then we headed to Chick-fil-a and enjoyed two free sandwiches with our coupon and one yummy children’s meal. Then there was ice cream and play land time.  We finished with a yummy Starbucks treat and quiet drive home with a sleeping Madeline. Who knew so many things in our life would change in just four years. I would have never imagined all that has happened. We both talked about how blessed we are right here in Altus with fabulous friends, a great baby, and family that loves us. Seriously, I couldn’t imagine a more fun and relaxing way to spend our anniversary.

I forgot our camera for our fun evening..rats!

Here is our most recent picture.

Do we look 4 years older?

18 Month Doctor Appointment

Today we took Madeline in for her 18 month appointment.  She is growing, growing, growing!  She is now 33 1/2 inches tall and  27 1/2 pounds.  She is still in the 90th percentile in all areas.  I think that means she is gifted. :)  She is in love with puzzles right now and is so cute when she turns them and turns them in her hands to get them right. She loves to high five after each piece.  Cheese is still the favorite food and many times you can hear Madeline running through the house yelling Cheeeeeeese!  So if the Schindler’s are headed to your house to visit -  you better have cheese and puzzles. :)
