Okay so we have a weekly tradition, we usually go to Mom & Dad Padgett's house for dinner every Sunday. The girls look forward to it every week, it's special time they get to spend with Nana & Papa. This Sunday Mom made roast beef, mashed potatoes, butter beans, rolls and banana pudding. ( No you guys can't come over for dinner, they're OURS!!!) Well, Maya and Megan both LOVE Nana's mashed potatoes ( as she says, "They aren't for the faint of heart.") they are creamy and delicious, it takes a little coaxing to get them to eat the rest of the food. However, the highlight of the evening was the tickle wars with Papa and the Banana Pudding. Maya was pretty close to licking her plate clean. Here are some pics of them enjoying their yummy dessert. Thanks Nana for a great dinner!!!
So, I forgot to mention that one of the cool things about having Matthew was that he came with his Mommy's car. So I am now Matthewless, kinda sad. :( It was fun having a baby boy in our home. I am also carless. It was really nice to be able to go where I wanted, when I wanted. But now I am back to no car.:( Maya and I went to Wal- Mart as our last Hoorah with a car. She decided she wanted to sit on Ronald Madonald's lap. Doesn't she look cute? She tried to move him and was a little disappointed that he was stuck to the bench. But she said he was really nice! Then we came home and took naps (YEAH!!!) and waited for Melanie to come take my baby ( I mean her baby) back home. Aunty Melanie brought us really nice Hawaiian gifts. Megan ABSOLUTELY loved her pretty bracelet and matching earrings! Maya got a beautiful Hawaiian dress. I got a pretty bag ( I LOVE bags!!) and a beautiful necklace. Marc got some yummy chocolates that we all get to share. I'm glad that she had fun and that we were able to help. She is a wonderful friend and I am very blessed to have her in my life.

My dream has finally come true! I have an ADORABLE baby boy in my home. Matthew is such a cutie. Marc has cute nicknames for him like "Booger Boy" and "Puke Monster", he of course means these in a loving way. This week has been fun with Matthew!!! (Oh, and no I didn't really have baby, he belongs to my BF Melanie.) I am fortunate to be able to watch him this week while she is hanging out on the beaches of Hawaii with her hubby Charlie (you gotta love the travel biz!). So Matthew is mine for a little while. I forgot what it's like to have a baby in the house. He has been very good and is sleeping pretty much through the night. Maya is having a little bit of trouble with it, she's use to it being just her and Mommy. But she is doing a good job of sharing me and always worries when Matthew is crying and wants to give him his binky. So we have enjoyed having baby Matthew with us and will be sad to see him go back home, but I don't think this family is ready for a full-time baby yet. So there you have it!! Our week has been full of smiles, spit-ups, sleeping and HAVING FUN!!! All in all a pretty good week if I do say so myself, and I do.

Today we went to Music with Mar, Maya loves Thursdays. My best friend Melanie picks us up and it's off to music class. Maya loves to sing and dance with her little friend Anna ( Melanie's little girl) and Ms. Kelly of course ( her teacher). She's become a bit of a teacher's pet, but who can resist that cute face and dimples, I'm just saying! She was a little disappointed that there was no Madonolds today, but she survived.

Halloween is finally over!! My kids have been hyped up on candy for the past 3 days. I'm waiting for the last traces of sugar to leave their bloodstream, although I suppose those soy hazelnut hot chocolates from Starbucks I gave them tonight won't help much. Megan and Maya were Butterfly Fairies (think Barbie Mariposa). They were sooooooo flippin' cute. Their Mimi threw an AWESOME Halloween Party and they had a blast!! They did a little trick-o-treating afterwards. It was soo cute to hear Maya go up to the doors this year and say "Twick-o-tweet". She thought it was the coolest thing that she got candy just for saying that. We also went to the ward Trunk-o-Treat Sat. night, so on Sunday Maya asked me if we were going to another party to get candy. Now I have to figure out what to do with all of the candy I have in my house.
