Madison's Birthday!

 Madison turned one year old on May 10th.  It was so nice because Bridget and her family happened to be in town so we had a little birthday party and went out to eat at the Big Texan (pictures will come later).
 Madi's Great Granddad gave her that little baby and she just adores it!  She still sleeps with it every night!

 Madi's My Little Pony birthday cake.
 Weston had to help Madi blow out the candles of course!
 Chisholm, Weston and Brogan
Madi's favorite part of the day- eating the cake!

Like Father, Like Son

 As many of you know, Nich loves his chainsaws!  He loves everything about them- how they are made, they way they run, he likes to hot-rod them and most of all he likes to use them.  For Christmas we got Weston a little Stihl chainsaw (just like dad's).  Weston would try to cut everything in the house- our table, Nich's guitar, the TV...  So, we decided to take him to go cut some firewood.
 Weston watched Nich for the longest time.

 Nich finally showed Weston how to do it.
I don't know who was happier cutting firewood-Weston or his dad...

Twice the TROUBLE!

 Since Madison has been mobile, I have had twice the trouble, twice the clean up, twice the loudness and 10 times the CUTENESS.  Weston and Madison are best friends and do everything together.   One day I noticed that the house was really quiet.  I went into the kitchen and they were getting out all of my Scentsy Candle scents.  It was really neat to watch because Madi would get one out at a time and hand it to Weston.  Weston would then begin to stack and line them up.  They did this all without making any sounds.  It was amazing how quiet the two of them could be!

Afternoon Nap

 As many of ya'll know, teaching your children to sit through church can be exhausting.  After you get home and eat lunch, you can't help but fall asleep.  Weston and Nich were so tired they were asleep within 5 minutes of sitting on the couch!
 Weston loves his dad SO much!  He won't fall asleep on me like this.

Four Wheeling

 One Saturday back in February, we decided to go four-wheeling at the Canadian River.  It was Weston and Madi's first time to ever go four-wheeling and they loved it! Weston would laugh every time we hit a bump or went up a steep hill.  I just wish we had more time to go do fun stuff like this as a family.

Catch Up!

So our lives have been pretty crazy for the last couple months- between moving to a new house in Amarillo and spending an entire month going to Alaska, Arizona and Seattle.  This is why I have not been able to update our blog for a while!  So I guess I will try to start off where I ended, and go from there!
