A visit with PawPaw

Earlier this month my dad came for a visit. It had been awhile since he was able to get away to see Makayla so needless to say she had grown up ALOT since the last time he saw her. He brought her and AWESOME red radio flyer bike and matching sunglasses. It took her a little while to hop but once she did she fell in love. She is still learning to pedal so we have left it inside until she get the hang of it!
Being Silly with PawPaw
On her bike again
Makayla became obsessed with her PawPaw while he was here. When he would walk out the room she would run after him saying "PawPaw PawPaw" when he showered she sat outside the bathroom knocking saying "PawPaw come play with me" She helped him do everything! He loved every minute of it. We are so happy he was able to come and visit and hope to see him again soon!!
Saying goodbye
My Dad also took Steve, my sister and I out to dinner at Bern's. We had a wonderful night chatting over a great meal! Thanks again Dad!

A kid needs to work!

In this house we run a tight ship! Now that Makayla is 2 it's time for her to start earning her keep around here!
We started by making her wash the dishes!
Clean the floors
Scrub Scrub Scrub
She was working on the laundry and this happened!
But now she is in charge of all the laundry
We make her clean the counters
and cook dinner! She is making creamed spinach
She even roasted a Chicken!
She is such a good cook and I love not having to do the dishes or laundry anymore!!! I think we should have more kids just to have more help!

*No Makayla's were harmed or overworked for this blog post*

First day of PreSchool

Makayla went to bed early last night and woke up this morning in a great mood. She had a good breakfast and I packed her lunch. She smiled BIG for the camera, and into the car we went!!!

She sang Snow white songs on the way there and pointed out all the colors she saw on the way.
Then we got to school!!!! I think this face tells it all! LOL
She was crying when I left but I am sure she stopped soon after. I cried a little too but stopped after about 10 minutes. I ran some errands and baked a couple batches of Cupcakes for an order this week. I will say baking the cupcakes is much easier without her. I leave soon to go get her. I miss her so much and it's only been 2 1/2 hours. I keep reminding myself this is good for both of us!!!
