I haven't posted in so long, but I just have to let everyone know that I am super excited that Grey's Anatomy is on tonight!!!! Two hours! Matt and I love this show. We snuggle and watch it together. Wierd, but we love it! I think I prefer catching up with people face to face and not with this blog stuff. I am just a blog stocker that's all!!!

pee pee in Potty

It is a very important day in the Hartley household! Emma has officially decided to use the potty! She thinks it is so exciting to bring me the little potty bowl and say "I go pee pee"! She is so proud of herself and so am I. I can finally have a little rest on the diaper bill. I have been buying diapers for 3 years. I went from buying diapers for Madison to Madison and Emma at one point and then down to just Emma. I am hoping within the next few weeks we will no longer be visiting Target as frequently! Yeah! There is only one condition to this potty training madness, She will only use the potty if she is naked. I Bought her really cool Dora panties last night hoping that she would not go in them and she did twice. So we are going to have to get use to those panties, but it is a great start to my little Emme growing up.

The Rodeo

The Rodeo parade is a tradition in our home. When Matt was in Junior High and High School he was in the band. (yea one of those nerds) His Mom went to everyone of those parades whether it be in the rain, snow, or 100 degree temps. As a kid, my parents also always took us to the parades. We enjoyed the floats and the music. So it is enevitable that our children pass down the parade tradition and it is still very important to Matt's mom. Madison loves the drummers in the parade. She stands and marches with them. It is so much fun to watch how excited all the kids get!

Madison's 3rd Brithday

Madison is very much into princess's and dressing up. So I decided to throw her a princess party. I had been dreaming up this party for quit some time. My husband said I went a little overboard. But you only have a 3rd Birthday once right?!!!

Yea for a gloomy day

I am stoked that today is a cloudy day. I have been freaking out for the past week over this hot hot heat we have getting and its only may. I have lived in this town my whole life and why is it that now I am freaking out. Maybe its the old age!!

If anyone needs some AC it will be running nice and cool at my house. Come over for some drinks and snacks at my shack. It will always be cool. and the kiddy pool is always full of water. My grass might be dead though because I would rather cool my house than water the grass!!!

San Diego Trip

So everyone has been asking about my trip because everyone has been stalking my blog so here are some pictures if I can figure it out. I had an awesome time and some much needed rest, thanks to my great friend Katy for letting me sleep in her bed all three nights. The last picture we went dancing and had a drink. Lets just say I can't do that anymore. I am way to old and it was way past my bed time!!!
