Weekend Facetime with Madelyn - She Is 9

I have to do my Monday post explaining that I spent another weekend cleaning and and chilling with my fur babies!

It was wonderful!!! It is so nice to chill at home every now and then...but now the fun starts up again!

Next weekend my sisters girls start their dance competitions!!!! I am hair and makeup so I will bring you the updates next weekend for Columbus! Yippee!!!

So, like I said, this weekend was spent chilling and cleaning. 

MOST IMPORTANTLY - I made a mandatory Facetime call on Saturday morning at 9:12 AM to my niece Madelyn! She turned 9 this year?!?!? At promptly 9:12AM (she explained to me that she was born at 9:12 AM because she saw it on Facebook! HA!  How is it even possible that it's been nine years?!?! Wow!!!

She is the sweetest and most loving child!! She almost always has a smile on her face - she gives the BEST hugs in the world and she is genuinely so happy!!!! She loves ice skating, soccer, basketball and cats (especially her cats Kenyon and Baxter).














A skating preview (she is the one in the pink coat)...






What a sweetie!!!! I love you sweet child - this family would not be the same without you in it! Hugs and kisses for a fantastic 9th year!!!

Aunt Annie loves you so many bunches Madelyn!!!!

XOXO

  1. I loved ice skating as a Kid. My Mom made me the cutest skating dress, and I loved my pretty white skates. I felt so free when I was on the ice. One of my first dates was to meet at the ice rink and skate.
    Madelyn is a treasure!

  7. Children are such a blessing.....Ann, are y'all competing against the ALDC or is it even in business anymore?

    1. Children really are a blessing - no doubt! They do not compete against the ALDC Arlene...they live in Columbus so they compete most often in and around Columbus. I am not sure if the ALDC still exists since she went to jail? I will have to look into that??? Have a great day!

  8. Sounds like a good weekend. Oh my, that should be fun at the dance competitions. It is really nice how we can do face time now. Big difference compared to just a phone call. Love the photos and the videos.

  9. Ah, I've found you! You left a comment on my blog (Codlinsandcream2) recently, and it got deleted by mistake when I was getting rid of the spam. Please forgive me and come and post a comment again and I promise I'll not send you to oblivion next time!

    What a beautiful niece you have (I was an only child so have none of them!) You sound like the perfect auntie anyway.

  15. I love being an aunt and going places with my nieces.

    1. I am so totally with you! Being an aunt is the best and although there are many days I wish I could keep them; you are right! There are just as many days that I am glad that I get the best parts of them and their parents deal with the discipline aspects - HA HA!
