Spring came early this year, so we’ve had plenty of time to play outside. Just wanted to share some pictures:

Yesterday we celebrated the birthday of Sweet Madeline. She’s six years old now and turning into such a lovely little lady. Here are the photos from Madeline’s special day:
First smile of the morning (We had to wait a few minutes for this. Even a birthday girl can wake up a tad grumpy.)

One happy sister!

At the table for dinner. The pizzas were still in the kitchen. I made a pepperoni & ham pizza, a barbecued chicken pizza and a Mexican cornbread pizza.

Can you count how many different outfits Madeline wore on her birthday? Two additional outfits weren’t pictured: a fancy dress-up dress and her pajamas. Madeline loves to change clothes!
