The best cousin in the world...

So, we have voted Gracie the best cousin in the world. Until the next little hosford comes, she the one and only in Maddie's eyes. :) Gracie spent a little time with us today and we had so much fun. Dance'n and playing all morning. She is so much fun to take pictures off...look at those lashes people!! :D

We love you Gracie-Poo!!

Afternoon at the Children's Museum

Tracy and I took the girls to the Grand Rapids Children's Museum today...what a riot. Maddie and Gracie obviously with the age difference, have very different types of "play" right now. :) Gracie sure does hold her own with the older kids I will say!! :) They had a ball with the bubble and the mirror. Of course the play kitchen was a huge hit. :) It's such a fun place to get these kiddos to get some energy out and they play so well together. Here are some fun shots from the day. Gracie wasn't so sure about the mirror tunnel at first, but ended up love'n it.

Update on Katie

I just talked to Austin and Katie is doing wonderfully! She didn't get much sleep last night as she was asked to get up and walk already!! Along with random walks, her vitals were taken all the time. Hopefully she can get some rest today. They told her walking will help the healing process that much quicker, so knowing Katie she'll be up and about. :) They have quite the facility at Blodgett, and she is getting great care. Fell better soon dear!!

Katie's doing GREAT!!

Katie had her surgery this morning and went great!! She is obviously sleepy, and out of it but she is doing really well. I'm sure she would want me to thank you all for your prayers as she starts this journey. Tom and I are going to see her right now, so I'll update this a little later.

Not too sure about this weather...

Yeah, Maddie's not so sure about this super cold weather. :)She doesn't really like the whole idea of getting this bundled up and then NOT playing outside. Think about's really not fair for a kid. :)

I love this expression.

Drive safe everyone!! :)

Little Mother...and a CUTE kid. ;)

Maddie is my little helper on Mondays when Thys is here. :) She plays "Little Mommy", which is a book that my Mom read to me when I was her age, and she also reads to Maddie. She just loves Thys. We have a great time with him and love him up while Mommy and Daddy work. Here are a few cute pics.

Maddie's Pictures

Maddie got a really cool (unbreakable) digital camera from her Papa and Grandma Hosford for Christmas. She plays with it ALL the time and really has taken some great pictures. :D Here are a few.
