Pumpkins here we come!

I finally found a good pumpkin patch close to home this year... normally we drive an hour and half to go to a patch near a friend of mine and we would have done that yesturday as well but her little girl was not feeling good. So I did some searching and found Hunter Farms in Union. Maddie went on her first Hay ride :) she was waving at everyone that we passed on our way out to the pumpkin fields.

Once we got to the pumpkins this little one walked forever before she picked out her pumpkin (with some help... she would have kept going otherwise) The thousand pumpkins before this picture were just not good enough ;)

Here is her pumpkin and if you couldnt tell by the face its a little heavy ;)

She "has" to help daddy take the pumpkins to the scale

The one thing this place didnt have that the other one does are mini hay bails that you can purchase, so maddie and i will be taking that trip after all ;)

Miss Maddie think Chopper is all hers. She is a good little mommy and is always watching out for him. She can be a little rough sometimes, when he first came home she treated him like a stuffed animal :( a little scary, but she has gotten alot better and is picking up under his arms instead of his neck. Chopper thinks it his job to keep her running, he loves to chase after Maddie and nipping her in the butt. It took about a week for Bandit to come around to liking the intruder in his home and now you cant separate the two of them, those two are always wrestling, Chopper may be ALOT smaller than Bandit but he can pack quite a punch! Now I just wish he was as easy to house train as Bandit was.

At the end of July I was laid off due to the economy. Maddie continued to go to daycare part time thru August, in the mean time i was looking for lots of activities for her to do to keep her from being bored at home with me. My little girl is a great gardener, she has managed to grow 3 pumpkin plants. Cant wait to see if we have 3 little pumpkins for Halloween!!!

My little girl is getting soo big so quick. Such an independent little monkey, recently she decided she didnt want to be in diapers anymore and started potty training herself :) all it took was buying her some "Tinkerbell" panties!!! What a smart big girl.

I love you Maddie!

The verdict is....

The nurse called me the other day to let me know that the culture tested positive for "a herpes virus" basically shingles. We don't know how she got it or from where. The nurse told me that they can actually get it from getting the Varicella shot, the virus in the shot will sometimes stick around and hibernate and on occasion will flare up. Lucky us :( Hopefully this is the only time she gets this.

*Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is one of eight herpes viruses known to infect humans (and other vertebrates). It commonly causes chicken-pox in children and both shingles and postherpetic neuralgia in adults.

'and the waiting game begins'

Tuesday night Rob and I found a small cluster of bumps under Maddie's left ankle bone. My first thought was ant bites, i have stomped a few in the house over the past few weeks. So we went to bed, well tried to at least. Maddie and I were up quite a bit that night, so i decided to make it a sick day for the both of us.
Then I found this....

It got worse thru-out the day so we met Rob at urgent care, "4" hours later the diagnosis was "Atopic Dermatitis" which is a form of Eczema. The doc gave us Hydrocortison cream and said let us know if it gets worse, but this should take care of it. That night we got less sleep, she was up ever 30 minutes screaming 'OWY'. Second sick day seemed to go worse than the first, we layed on the couch all day watching Tinkerbell, didnt eat very much and the rash didnt seem to be getting much better. Well here we are Saturday afternoon and it is worse than ever, the cream seem to make it spread further up her leg. Went back to urgent care, three more doctors looked at it, i asked that they please take a culture of it, which she did and also gave us a referal to the dermatologist. Still no idea what it is, possibly shingles? Was given another medicine and a referal and told it would be 3 days before we would know exactly what it is.

So now we are waiting :( with a very unhappy little girl, and no sleep.

Rub-a-Dub Dub

It doesn't matter what kind of day little miss Maddie has had, she could be in one of the crankiest moods. As soon as she gets in the tub all that crankiest just goes away!!! She is such a goofy girl and I cant get enough of her smile!

Looking for the Stork!

Rob and I have been discussing this for a while now and have decided that we are ready to add to our little family. Last week I went to the doctor to have my birth control removed (IUD) and when I got back to work this is what was waiting for me!
Beautifull baby roses! I have such a wonderful man.
I am sure showing you the note card may embarrass him a little, but I think its cute!

I cant begin to tell you how excited I am, and how much I cant wait to have another baby. Hopefully I will be blogging about a Positive test soon!!!


Last May my Mother-in-law had a very bad stroke and lost alot of her movement in her right side. Her favorite thing to do for Maddie was crochet her hats, she made many other things for lots of other people, but my favorite were the cute hats that she made, none of them are the same they all have a different look and match each one of maddie's personalities. I dont want maddie to miss out on those sentimental items. So I decided to teach myself how to Crochet. I knew the basics but never really made anything before. So here are a few things that I have made lately!
This hat and blanket I made for my little brother Mike. He inlisted into the Army last march, Maddie and I are sending them to him for Valentines Day.
I made this baby hat for my coworkers new Granddaughter.
The wreath below did not take Knitting or Crocheting, but was still very fun.

Daddy's Girl!!!

Maddie loves her daddie very much. We really only get him three days a week because he works nights monday - thursday. So on those three days that we are all home, she monopolizes his time as much as possible... She deffinately has him wrapped around her little pinky finger (@19 months old)!!!

We are both very greatfull for the sacrifices he makes for this family. We love you Daddy!

Dashing thru the snow (not quite in a one horse open sleigh)

For christmas we went to my mom's house in Gardnerville, NV. They didnt get quite as much snow as we did here in Washington (which is not normal) but they did get enough for her neighbor to create a small hill for the kids to sled off of in their driveway. Maddie was a sledding fool. What a goof, she had soo much fun, couldnt get enough. Mom's neighbors have three little ones, one little girl that is only about a month older than maddie, she was not having any part of the snow and sledding, did not like it at all!!!

Wow granni is a little excited!

Go baby Go!

Uncle Mikey is the best!!! WOOHOO!
