A few weeks before her birthday she told me, "I don't want to go to Disney because I want to have a birthday party".

MK and Tink on her birthday! She was disappointed the other fairies were not there, but was excited to see Tink.
MK and Handy Manny at Hollywood Studios. She had lots of fun at the Disney Junior area.
This was a few weeks after her party. The dress is made from bandanas. She loves posing!
Trying on her costume for her 1st dance recital, which is this weekend (June 1). She dances ALL the time and is pretty good with the lingo too.
Other things about MK at 4:
*She can read pretty much anything
*She likes to play dress up and Barbies
*She has a thing for Pillow Pets (she has 8 or so)
*She can do simple math, mostly addition
*She loves to draw and write
*She can work the computer by herself and likes to play PBSKids.org
*She has become more aware of Madyson and sometimes talks about her "baby" sister. Other times she is her big sister.
I'm sure there is a TON more, but this is all I can think of right now.

The most dreaded week of my life is fast approaching. I guess it's not really the entire week usually, just a few days of it. Last year the 1st week of February was by far the worst week of the year, possibly the last several years. I'm optimistic that this year will be better. For those that are wondering what in the world I am rambling about, the 6 year anniversary of Madyson's death is fast approaching. I saw this
Enough of the sappy stuff. I've made myself tear up and know I'll need the tears next week. Next week is also my 7 year anniversary!! We share it with my grandparents. This makes it extra special to me. Wes and I have been together since January 2002. 10 years! He drives me bananas but I can't imagine spending the last 10 or next 10 (or the follow 100 either) years with anyone else. We've been through a lot together. He works so hard to provide the best for MK and I. We miss him terribly when he's gone. Luckily we get to see him at least weekly (most of the year anyway). This is us just before Christmas.
here is my grandparents taken just before their 50th Anniversary back in 1999. Just kidding, I can't find the picture already online and am too lazy to hut it down and scan it tonight. Maybe this weekend, or at least before our anniversary I'll get it scanned.
I'm done blabbing for now, but hope to come back next week and do a blog on what's happening at work. It's too much to add to this blog.

Take one of turning Daddy's shirt into a dress for MK. The arm holes were a little small and she did not like how it fit. I cut the sleeves off and came up with this....
I have found a ton of ideas I can't wait to try. Come back often and see what else I come up with !
