MacDonald's Ranch

Yesterday we took a trip out to the Wild Wild West for some ranch fun and pumpkin pickin. The girls had a great time feeding the animals, going on a hayride to the pumpkin patch and riding the horses. This was no pony ride. They rode full size horses and were so in LOVE with them. Madelyn waited for her favorite horse Blondie. She even let other kids go in front of her so she could ride her. She told the ranger she bonded with Blondie because she let her smell her. It was cute. So proud of Sara being up on that big horse and not being scared. We left smelling like a stable, but it was worth it!

My little lady

This is Madelyn's Kindergarten picture. I thought she did such good job without me being there to help primp and pose her. She is our "Little Lady."

Race For the Cure

It was a cold and early morning for us today as we went down town for the Race. Nice mother daughter time with Madelyn and our good friends Shawna and Madison. The girls learned a little about why we were doing all of this and I think they got it when we said we were doing it so that when they were older there would hopefully no longer be any women who have to die from breast cancer. Madelyn just wanted to know if we were going to "Win the Race." I had to explain to her that everyone was a winner in this kind of race.

Sara's surgery

Sara had her tonsils and adenoids out on Thursday and I have to say she is doing pretty good. She was so brave. She even helped push her cart into the OR. They do such a good job at PCH preparing the kids. They even let her see the mask she was going to get put to sleep with in pre op where she was playing. She put it on and played with it. It was bubblegum flavor. She came out of the anesthesia really well. It has been hard watching her in pain and listening to her nasally voice. She is so sad when her medicine is wearing off. Last night was a little scary because she had 103 fever and started throwing up. I ended up sleeping with her all night. She is a different kid today now that we convinced her to take her medicine and eat something. She is back to running around pretending to be a dog. Gotta love kids. They bounce back so easy. I thought we were on our way to the ER for fever and dehydration. I just kept telling her to trust mommy and I would make her feel better. She snuggled me and said "ok mommy I trust you, please make me better."
