Photoshop Fun


So....I'm a little addicted to Photoshop. The crazy thing is, I don't anything yet. :) I do have about 1.5 Million pictures of Maddie, so once I know what I'm doing....it will be fun. Here is one that I've been playing with. Thanks Melssia and James for all of your advice and knowledge...even if it does make you computer geeks. :)

The Best Day to be a Mom!!




What a wonderful day to be a Mom.


This was my first official Mothers Day and it was just great! Sleeping in....a great breakfast....Flowers... Gotta love it. :) Tom also gave me a book that should help me with a computer program I'm working with. ( I know...nerd...) You really can't count Photoshop as a NERD computer program...Melissa & James, thoughts??? :) I can't wait to dive in, start creating and this book will help me a great deal. So thank you Maddie and Tom. :)

We went to my parents this afternoon, to wish my Mom a happy Mothers Day and had a wonderful prime rib dinner. Always a spectacular meal when my Dad cooks. I only wish I got half of his cooking skills. :) We then went over to Tom's parents and wished Grandma Hosford, Great-Grandma Hosford and Great-Grandma Snellink a happy Mothers Day. Maddie Loves her Grandma's that's for sure. She can't get enough hugs and kisses.

We would like to wish Happy Mothers Day to all the special women our lives...all the new Mom's this year ( we know a few) :) and all the new Mothers to be. ( especially Aunt Tracy) It is the most wonderful thing that any women can do, to give life and unconditional love.

Lunch With Aunt K.K. and Grandma


On Friday Maddie and I had lunch with Aunt K.K. and Grandma Hosford down at the good ol Corner Bar. We saw Uncle Joel and Aunt Sabrina there. Great food and great company. Can't ask for much more than that!

Snuggling with Grandpa Fanning


Here is a wonderful Picture of Maddie snuggling with my Dad. She is truly blessed to have four wonderful Grandparents, five Great-Grandparents, and One Great-Great-Grandmother. Amazing! She is very loved.

Where's Maddie???






One of Madilyn's newest things is "finding" anyone who calls her name. She will be across the room and if you get on the floor and say "Where's Maddie??" she will totally halt, turn around and make a straight line to you. Crawl like crazy to get to you and then she'll take your hands down. Kind of saying "Here I am!!" Sooooo sweet. Here are three pictures that sort of tell the story...
