She is just flat out annoyed in this photo that I haven't yet picked her up. (Did you check out her hair? - HEE HEE)
We leave tomorrow for Greenville, SC. Jason's childhood friend, Kevin, is getting married. Madison will get some great time in with Nana and Pop!
While we are gone we are hoping and praying that our floors get finished... I'll update you one day when I feel like talking about it. :(

Here we are celebrating birthdays at Odie and Doonie's house. Madison even got a CUTE little dress. Odie and Doonie didn't want to leave her out. She liked the box the most.. I guess that is typical.
How do you bath 3 kids under 4 all at 7 p.m.? Throw them in the tub together! Three proved to be quite a crowd when Austin decided to flip over on his stomach and attempt to swim laps in the tub. Madison is still recovering from getting knocked over. She is not nearly as enthusiastic at bath time these days.
Still no post floor pictures yet... we are having a few technical difficulties to say the least. Stay tuned!

Here's an updated photo of Michele and Madison. She took to Michele pretty quickly!
This photo was taken by my babysitter! See the BIG smile on my face?? I was excited to get out of the house to go shopping with Michele.
Here is the "sort of" back to normal part of my story. We have found ourselves (me and Jason) at a crossroads with our carpet. It's 10 years old and we are the second family with kids and dogs to give it much love. It's in pretty horrible shape. We couldn't seem to bring ourselves to replace the existing carpet with our two furry kids so we have decided to refinish our existing hardwood floors in the kitchen and extend them into the living and dining room. (Yes, we have carpet in the dining room... who does that?) We have been instructed to empty the entire downstairs of everything. That includes curtains, pictures, pantry, fridge, etc. Apparently, when you refinish floors dust gets everywhere. YUCK!
We spent a large part of yesterday evening trying to do just that.. empty out the bottom level. I am very excited to see the carpet go! But until then... my house looks like this!!!
I will post some before and after shots when the job is complete. I am leaving for GA this week to spend time with my family. Jason will stay behind to work and monitor the installation. I am REALLY nervous about my five hour drive alone with Madison. She is a great car rider, but hey everyone has their limits.

We had such a great time and I can't wait until she gets here! What can two ladies and a baby get in to???

I can't seem to get to work to finish up my final days. Madison had the stomach bug last week and this morning we woke up to 5 - 6 inches of snow!! Dell delayed their opening until 10 a.m. They NEVER close or delay so you know we must have gotten a good bit!
Jason and I bundled up Madison and headed out for a few shots. We were out really early this morning so we took turns taking photos.
Even if Jason had gotten my full body, you would not see my feet in this photo! The snow was deep enough that I was covered way over my ankles! I haven't seen this much snow in a long time!

A view of the day from my upstairs window.
Can you see the ice??
We'll see how much snow we get. We have heard as low as 3 inches and as high as 6 inches on the news....
