Dinner at Nana & Papa's

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!!!

Ronald Madonald

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.

We Have A Baby Boy!!!

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.

Yesterday we went to the Manatee Viewing Center, it was fun! Maya enjoyed getting out of the house and spending time with her cousins (thanks Mimi!). Of course I forgot to charge to my battery and only got to take a few pictures ( in the 1st 5 mins. we were there) before the battery died. Maya had fun running around, looking for manatees, crabs and birdies. We even spotted a sting ray. The best part was that Mimi took us this italian ice place called Rita's. It was DELICIOUS!!!! I had a Pumpkin Pie gellati and a Mango Italian ice which were both AMAZING!!!! The girls were very good cousins and were sharing with each other, no pics to prove it though. I can't wait to go back and have some more, I'm thinking Friday for the Fudge Brownie and Saturday for the Coconut!!!

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.


Well, hello friends and family. Just wanted to keep people updated on what's going on at The Padgett Home (since we're really bad about calling and e-mailing our friends). We are doing well, Marc is still a Superintendent at Mercedes Homes and I'm still staying at home with the girls. Megan started 1st Grade this year and is an awesome little reader already! Maya is now 2 and quite the little conversationalist, I don't know where she gets that from. Both the girls LOVE to sing and dance. We have daily performances at our home if anyone wants to stop by, I'm sure they'd love a bigger audience than just Mom & Dad. Marc is the Sunday School President in the Ward and I am the CTR 7 teacher. We are working and enjoying the time we have with our little family!
