At 10:18 am, Friday, the 10th of November, Madeleine Therese took her first breath of California air. Madeleine will be the first to be born out of Sioux Falls and the only one with a California birth certificate. She was 8lb 7oz and 19″ which is a pretty average Frederes size.
Just so cute!

Someone takes cheese a little seriously.

I’m awake now!
Baby: Who are you?
Even in strange arms, she let sleep claim her.
There are last minute decisions in my life all the time, I plan outings spur of the moment, I babysit last minute, My family of 10 have left on a cross-country 2-week vacation with a 24hr notice. So, I am very used to changes and last minute decisions but this will be the fastest course of action I have seen yet. These next days will go by in a blur of boxes, stress, sweat, tears, and change.
On October 10th we received a call from our realtor, there was a family that wanted to look at our house the following morning. So we quickly got the house ready for a showing that night and went to bed. They came in the early morning and we all left to go have breakfast at Burger King and few blocks away. We were almost finished eating when my dads’ phone rings which is a normal occurrence so nobody pays any attention to the call that will change everyone’s lives. My dad hangs up the phone and says “they want to move-in November 1st.”
These are my flowers that I planted last fall.
I have 12 out of 14 that bloomed, and next year I might have 24 tulips. Two buds you cannot see. One is behind the red tulip on the far left this one will be purple. The other is to the side of the pinkish white one, this one will also be purple, next to the red one I just tolled you about. It is really short.
So I will have five purple ones, three pinkish white ones, and four red ones.
I am adding this on about five day later the white and yellow daffodil is still picture perfect.
The daffodils lasted a week longer then I thought they would.
Sarah even made me dig my own hole. It was quite difficult because I was gigging about 2 inches from her flowers. And the entire time Sarah stood over me. But, every time I thought that the hole was deep enough
Which one is your favorite?
I bought a new camera yesterday, and it is hot pink. It is very exciting for me to have a camera. This morning I was practicing taking pictures and videos all over the house. Now I won’t have to use my dad’s camera. My camera has so many buttons and gadgets. And now they will be my pictures.
These are my new shoes that I got last weekend. We literally went in to six or seven stores and these are the best we found. I am not complaining about the shoes, but I was hoping for something a little more fancy. The shoes were either too fancy, too high healed, too big, too small, or not comfy enough. And that is only half of it. I can’t believe my size of shoes. I have the biggest girl feet in the family. I wear a size eight shoes. These are so comfortable.
