Peanut butter, Alfafa and yarn over kind of Monday

Hello friends and sweet angels in blogland (not that there is a distinction between the two!)
We are preparing for the special day tomorrow! MADDYSEN TURNS 7!!! So very hard to believe how much she has grown! She enters second grade this year and is very excited that her cousin, Xander is also going to attend her school, in first grade! His school was changed into a middle school in a district reassignment. She can't wait to introduce him to all her friends...lol...he will be an instant "MAN ON CAMPUS"..LOL...

I am working on her summer scrapbook on how i spent my summer...

here are a couple of pages that I have added...







I've done about 14 pages thus far...

Auntie Kaleigh has to work tomorrow all day so she brought over a gift for maddy a bit early...(maddy said she wished kaleigh could be there for her birthday but welcomed an early PRESENT!!!! (and maybe uncle richie will still be able to come tomorrow!)





of course we had to put on our new outfit RIGHT AWAY!!! ...and give some HUGE THANK YOU HUGZ!!!



Maddy also got another suprize today....for awhile now maddy shannon and i have been watching the TLC show Ashley Paige: bikini or bust...(this show was also the inspiration for maddy's little knit dresses that she made for her doll!) She wanted to knit like Juan, Ashley's knitter extraordinaire!...Well this last weekend we sent an email via her website to tell her how much we enjoyed the show and looked forward to it each week! Well lo and behold SHE REPLIED!!! Maddy was in such awe AND HAD THIS LOOK was it REALLY ASHLEY?...!!!! Well today Maddy got to talk to Ashley Paige on the PHONE!!!! SHE WAS SOOOO EXCITED...SHE WAS LITERALLY JUMPING UP AND DOWN!!! then Ashley asked Maddy if she would like to talk to JUAN!!!! Oh what more could a 7 year old fan ask for!!! Ashley's store is in Hollywood, CA...1616 Cahuenga Blvd. (Just in case anyone is in the vicinity..hee hee..stop and tell her how happy she made one special little sweetie!)...and if you get a chance to check out her show...it's on TLC...(the learning channel)...Ashley also runs a doggie rescue from her shop too!

Well once again inspired by the show...(and the phone call helped too...lol)
Maddy got out her little knitter machine (as opposed to the big machine that nonnie would have to bring up from the studio) and made this sweet little anklet for herself to match her birthday outfit from auntie kaleigh and uncle richie...






....now she wants me to find some buttons and shiny things to put on it...lol..
she may have to open her own etsy shop!

Maxx...dined on a peanut butter sandwich for lunch...oh just look at that face! Then we noticed that he has this qwirky little ALFALFA spike (thinking it was peanutbutter induced..lol) going on on his head...



And speaking of Maxx...he just turned 19 months...and is quite the character! Oh can you just tell the boy is FULL Of energy! and a bit of mischief!!!??



no call about my friday interview...and she said i'd hear by this last saturday...
past the point of frustration...on to the next...

Well until next time...hugz and love!
