Our first Taxi ride

We flew home Sunday night. We live almost an hour from the Birmingham Airport and it can be a pain to ask someone to take us and expensive to leave our car in the airport garage if we stay more than a long weekend. So this year we chose to take a Taxi. I called America Cab Company prior to deciding to do this, and was surprised how inexpensive it was. It was so nice and a pleasant surprise! We will not hesitate to do this the next time.

Maddie Pie's Second Birthday

Well we had Maddie Pie's birthday party yesterday. What fun! Emily, Rick, and me got her a gift certificate from Belks. Ashley can get her what she needs. I love gift cards! Ashley got her a Vtech computer. Madison totally loved it and once she saw it, we had to make her continue open gifts. Her birthday theme was Sponge Bob. If someone had no idea of who Sponge Bob was, they would before they left. I don't know anyone who doesn't love Sponge Bob and Patrick! Jeremy's Mom and sisters came over too. Kari was here from Spain. Everyone was so glad she was able to come home for the Holidays. Madison just talks and talks. She can put 4-6 words together now and can count to 10!! Smart baby.

We are going to Texas for Christmas. Each time we talk with Alex she will ask "Gamma have you packed your bags yet?" What a sweet girl! She is so excited about seeing us again and I am so thankful for that! I have not done any shopping yet. With us flying we are limited to what we can take. Also, we give our kids gift cards which we all love so all we have to do it buy for the Granddaughters. Two things we want to get for the girls are a digital camera for Alex who just turned 9 and a small bike or skooter for Maddie Pie who will be 2 on the 20th. I love to cook and have just finished my menu for the week. I am sure I will be in the kitchen all day, every day cooking everyone's favorite dishes and loving every minute. I remember how it was to work all day and come home and have to work half the night getting dinner on the table and school work done. I'll try and cook extra's in order to freeze it and let them enjoy it later. Here is a picture of my Grandbabies that Ashley had taken in November. I love these sweet girls!!
