Punkins at the Pumpkin Patch

This past Saturday, we went to the local pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins.  It is always fun to go.  Green Acres does such a good job of decorating, and they have such a huge selection of pumpkins, straw, corn, gourds, and lots more.  The kids loved it!!!!!  Absolutely loved it.  Madelyn stared in awe at first while Cooper immediately ran to get some pumpkins. 

They loaded up the wagon several times.  When they were running to get some more, Warren was stealthily putting back some of the pumpkins so that we didn't have to take out a loan before we left. :)

Madelyn Turns Two!

Really???  Really??? How can it be that our BABY is two years old.  Officially that ends her time as being a baby, and she is now a toddler.  Part of me is so happy that she just turned two, but a big part of me wants it all to slow down.  I think it's because she will always be the baby.  I had such a hard time with my pregnancy with her that we decided that Madelyn would make our family complete.  And she truly has!  I cannot really remember how our family was without her.  Madelyn Kyle Neely, We love you so much!!!

OK, let me get over the fact that Madelyn is two and get on to the important information.  Her party. :) 

When coming up with the theme for Madelyn's birthday party, I had a hard time deciding between two themes, shoes or purses!  Isn't that funny.  She is only two, but she loves shoes and purses.  She is such a girly girl.

Here are the pictures from her big day.

 The spread.  Sandwiches, fruit, breakfast casserole, and cake.  Yummy Yummy!!!!
 The awesome purse cake made by my mom's boss.  Isn't it amazing!!! :)  Thanks, Shelly!
 Madelyn's Birthday Plate made by a friend of mine.  Check her out on facebook.  2 Blessed Designs.  Thank you so much, Janet.  The plate is gorgeous, and she will use it for many many birthdays.
 Madelyn's outfit was made by another friend of mine, Terri.  Check her out on facebook as well.  Her name is Sew Blessed.  Thank you so much, Terri.  It was perfect.

Cousin Emma and Cole (Nicole)  were the first to arrive.  WE were so glad you both could come.

 Granny, Aunt Reese, Cousin Barrett, and Big Brother Cooper all enjoying the food.
 Cooper and Barrett--Cousins and usually friends.  At this moment, I think they were friends. :)
 Now they are Gentlebugs (instead of Ladybugs).  They thought this was so funny!
 Aunt Reese even joined in on the festivities.  She is a true Ladybug!
 Madelyn and Emma (Eeeeeema, as Madi says).  They are three months apart, and I hope they will be the best of friends one day.  Just like their mommies.
 Present time!!!! :)  Look at all that pink!

 Thank you EVERYONE!  I had a great time turning two today!!!!!  LOVE, MADELYN!!!
