Today this girl is 10. I cannot believe I just said that. 10!! I remember 12 years ago praying, crying, begging for a baby. 2 years later I was holding this precious gift in my arms. She is the most amazing kid. She is sensitive, kind-hearted, loving, gentle, a peacemaker, motherly, funny, strong, bold, daring, brave, talented, creative, encouraging, sweet, spunky, and so much more. I can't put into words how full my heart is with love for this girl. We are more blessed than I could have ever imagined. So, on this day, I want to wish my daughter the most happiest of birthdays.

This morning after cleaning the bathroom I noticed my son doing the "gotta go potty" dance. I was doing my make-up while he was going and this is the conversation we had:
C: Mom, can I clean the toilet?
M: Sorry Buddy, I already cleaned it.
C: I knew it. I can see the blue.
C: It's not clean anymore. It's N-S-O-D "DIRTY"!
Pretty dirty if he felt the need to "spell" dirty. He is too cute!

Makenzie and I have birthdays this month that are about 3 weeks apart. Back in September I got the idea to take her on a mommy/daughter birthday trip. It was a complete surprise to her. I didn't tell her until the day we left. She was SO surprised that she had tears in her eyes. It was priceless!
WEDNESDAY: We flew to Portland where we were picked up by our friend, Sara. We went to dinner and had a great time laughing and eating. From there we headed back to Sara's house where we stayed up late visiting and catching up.
THURSDAY: After sleeping in and enjoying a lazy morning that included watching The Price is Right, we headed out to meet some friends for lunch. After lunch we went to Target and bought out the store. (Including matching pajamas for everyone.)We then headed back to Sara's where we spent the rest of the evening in our new jammies eating and watching movies. We stayed up WAY too late, but had the best time.
FRIDAY: This was our busy day. We started by having tea at the cutest tea house in Philomath. Makenzie loves to go to tea. She was so cute acting all lady-like with her tea. After tea Makenzie and I had an appointment to get facials together. It was the first time for both of us and we are hooked! Kenz said she actually fell asleep it was so relaxing. I'm so glad we were able to do it together. Great memories. After facials we went to Borders and had coffee and looked around for a while. From there we stopped at Fred Meyer because I was trying to find a specific "surprise" I told Caleb I would bring back for him. We headed back to the house where we spent the evening making homemade pizzas and watching another movie. Once again stayed up way too late but it was totally worth it.
SATURDAY: This was another lazy morning spent laughing with Kerry about pictures on the internet. After getting all packed and ready to go, we headed to Red Robin to meet Darrell and Lynn for lunch. Enjoyed the yummy food and laughed ALOT. Then it was off to the airport to wait for our flight home.
This was a great trip with many memories made with my little girl...who isn't so little anymore. I can't believe she is going to be TEN! I love her so much and am thrilled that we were able to spend this time together. And thanks to Kerry and Sara for letting us stay with them and for being our chauffeur. :O) You guys are the best!

Here are some photos from the past week:
Went to a friend's house to tie-dye Halloween shirts. We had the best time and the kids loved decorating the pumpkins on their shirts.
Saturday Scott took Makenzie on a motorcycle ride to Horseshoe Bend and back (about 70-80 miles round trip). They stopped and had breakfast and Makenzie can't wait for the next trip.
