Hoodies and Dinky Doughnuts

Saturday day morning this time of year means the farmer's market :) In the past I have either been at work or taking care of a new born and have not been able to attend but this year Maddie and I have been 5 times and today was Jeff's second time to go. It is in the middle of downtown which is all of a 2 minute drive (I know, we should probably just walk) and we have enjoyed it so much! Our weekly purchases include green beans, grass fed beef and the most wonderful freshly fried Dinky Doughnuts. These are the lightest, fluffiest doughnuts I have ever eaten! We've decided they are laced with crack and do not know what we will do without our fix after market season is over... I just might have to try my hand at homemade doughnuts. Every week I am trying something new that is sold there as well and this week it is garlic from a stand that sells about 25 different types... we'll see if it is worth the effort of using different kinds...?

There was a chill in the air this morning so we bundled Maddie Mae up a bit. Here she is with Jeff in their hoodies :) Every time we attempt to have a photo shoot for Jeff and Madeline we end up with some pretty rough weather (the first attempt there was a tornado). We hope to have some quality pictures of them to go on the wall next to the Mother's Day pics of Maddie and I soon.

The Party

Over all I would say that Madeline's 1st birthday party was a success! The video montage that Jeff made really tells it all so I will just say that getting her hyped up on birthday cake and then introducing her new playroom was a good order of events, all that sugar made her run around in there for a while trying everything out :) Maddie is thoroughly enjoying all her new gifts so thank you so much for thinking of her!!

Maddie Mae is 1 today!

Today we are celebrating the birth of our precious Madeline Mae Grissom! A whole year has passed... wow... a whole year! As astounding as this is to me I have been looking at pictures over the last year and the amount of change in our sweet girl seems like it should have taken several years and not only one. We were expecting to meet our little girl on 10/16/09 but she wanted a better birthday so she showed up on 9/9/09 at exactly 6 p.m. After some worry and a ton of prayer over her early arrival God blessed us with a healthy (albeit very tiny) little girl. She has been a joy! We are loving getting to know her as her personality comes through more every day. We are having a little birthday party (just the three of us) and will post about her day in a future blog but for now, here is a photo of Maddie the day she came home from the hospital and one from today. Thanks for all the Happy Birthday wishes you have sent out to her!
