good to have a mom

Every once in a while I have to give myself a little credit for you two wonderful girls...and since it's my birthday today, I thought today was a good day to do just that :)

M's puppy/hawkeye party

We had a great day yesterday, celebrating  Makenna's 3rd birthday!  A month or so ago, Makenna told me she wanted a Puppy (and Kitty Party, 'because I like both of them').  Then, last weekend you watched the Iowa/Iowa State game with your dad and realized how fun it is to be a Hawkeye fan -- afterall, you get to eat snacks and yell at the TV, what could be better?!

Here are a few pics from your big day :)  Love you, punkin!

Mom made you a puppy cake.  You insisted on a Pink cake mix.
(new purse and jewelry!)
All of your cousins and big sis were there to help you celebrate!

Someone is turning 3 tomorrow!

Little Makenna...Mak...Mackie...Ken....Kenna...Macaroni...MakTator...Sis...Sissy...Little Sis...(and up until tomorrow, 'Lil 2 year old)....child of a thousand nicknames.
Sweet as pie...most of the time.
You love your big sissy, your mom and dad, and your dog Blue. 

Your love your stuffed animals and your bed is always full of stuffed animals and books.  You are learning so much and getting so smart.  You know all of your colors and shapes.  You are even learning Kindergarten everyday words right along with your big sis :) 
Happy Birthday - We love you Miss Makenna!

Attitude of GratitudeYou cannot be both angry and grateful at the same time. Start counting the blessings and miracles in your life, start looking for them and you shall find more. What’s there not to be grateful? You are alive and breathing! Realize how lucky you are and all the abundance in your life.
