This post has been a long time coming. Between getting a new computer and a new phone in the past month, I've had trouble finding some of my photos. I have found most of them for these two weeks of Project Life, so I am going to go with what I have.
We spent the first half of this week in South Carolina. We went to my favorite Mexican restaurant for lunch on Sunday. Maddie loved the salsa, and she ate a ton of it. Her dress and tights were covered with it!
We had a red and white polka dot party for Maddie's birthday. We got the decorations at the dollar store (before the big snow earlier that week). My mom made the cupcakes, and my sister made some fun cookies.
When Maddie saw her cupcake, she said, "Tada! Whoo hoo!"
My nephew, Ryan, ate his frosting with his straw.
Maddie got lots of fun, girly gifts
and had a great time at her party!
On Tuesday, the kids and I spent the day with my mom, sister, and niece at the Children's Museum. My parents wanted to do something special as part of Maddie and Drew's birthday gifts this year, so they planned this fun day. We started with lunch at McDonalds.
We had so much fun at the museum! Maddie went grocery shopping with a little cart.
We played with a giant Light Bright.
We went into a wind tunnel.
We played in the water. Maddie tried to climb in!
We did construction.
We watched balls shoot through tubes.
Drew and Maddie went down this slide about 50 times.
Drew pulled himself up with a rope.
Maddie got a new doll stroller (actually two of them!) for her birthday, and my sister let Maddie push her new little cousin around in the stroller (under close supervision).
Here's what I did for Project Life this week.
Week 9:Maddie had her 2 year well-visit on Monday, and it was her first visit to our new family doctor. With Jim's new job, we got new health insurance. The coverage and co-pays are good, but our doctor, the kids' pediatrician, and my endocrinologist don't take our new insurance. I was quite concerned about having to find new doctors, but I decided to try a doctor that one of the teachers at our school recommended. We love this new doctor! Since she is a family doctor, we can all see her, she has taken over my thyroid stuff, which eliminates my need for an endocrinologist, and her office is less than a mile from our house! I am so thankful that God has provided for us in this way.
Maddie rearranged the magazines in the waiting room.
Here's what I did for Project Life this week. Right beside my title, I added a business card from our new doctor's office. (I blurred out the information for privacy.) I used a craft knife to cut along the bottom of the masking-tape that was printed on the journaling card, and I tucked the top of the business card into the slit so it looks like I stuck the business card on with tape.
Here are Weeks 8 and 9 together.
