Masee skut :)

One of my sweet little 1st grade girls wrote me this note.

Snow day!

This past Monday the McCauley family got a sweet surprise... An extra day home with the kids! We woke up to SNOW!

Reid loved it until a tiny bit got in his boots. After that he was done - it was too cold for him. He did open the sugar canister that day and wonder how snow got in it too. So cute!

I put Maci in a giant snow suit to keep her completely warm. When I sat her down she fell straight back. She hated it!!

Patrick cooked us breakfast and we had lunch at Jason's deli. It was perfect. Just what we all were needing!

Maci and Santa

Patrick and Reid had a river day this past Saturday. Reid refuses to go near Santa. He says he will just write him a letter. :)

So - what better time to take my girl to visit Santa!? We brought her sweet friend Hollis. Hollis was brave... Maci was not!

My sweet grandmother has moved into Rolling Meadows. We cherish every moment with her! Without any hesitation she continues to play cowboys with Reid and doesn't stop smiling when Maci is around. These pictures mean the world to me!

Being silly!

Maci's little personality is starting to shine! She is really silly! We love her little giggles and her signature 'Maci face!'

Reid was asking lots of good questions about the nativity scene this morning. I am so excited to share the story of Christmas with him!

Patrick asked Reid what makes him toot and Reid said..."my lunch."

Then Patrick asked what makes them stinky and he said... "God do's."

Always making us laugh!

Smart girl

Apparently I forgot to turn Maci's bouncy seat on. No big deal! She will do it herself! :)

Sick boy

We are so thankful for healthy kids. Our Reid had his first stomach bug just shy of 3 years old. Seeing him sick was so hard on this mom's heart. He was a trooper though! He laid around all day watching cartoons. He would throw up and say "what is happening?" then go sit in the bath tub for awhile. Thankful it was just a couple days and then he was back to being a cowboy!!

5 months old

Our sweet baby girl has already hit 5 months. Just can't believe how fast they grow. I get a little sappy!! Patrick and I agree that we just can't imagine life without our Maci girl! She has gotten big enough to interact more with Reid... There is nothing sweeter to Momma! I love watching them together! She slept through the night for the first time last night, loves her cereal, started sitting up, loves her blanket, enjoys bath time, and never stops smiling! We continue to praise the Lord for blessing us! Happy 5 months baby girl!

My sweet Reid

Reid: "were you missing me?"
Me: "I sure was buddy!"
Reid: Sweet little giggle... "I was missing you and my daddy."

Love him! I cannot believe I get to be his mommy.

Reid has a buddy at Market street! He calls him his friend and gets excited when he is working! He always let's Reid help him stock the condiments. Sweet guy!

School days

Starting back to work was so tough this year. I think 4 months off is just long enough to really get a great routine and realize just how much fun spending my days with Reid and Maci really can be! However, the Lord has me at Crockett for a reason. So sad to leave my own kids, but excited to start my ministry at Crockett!

Thanks to a wonderful husband and some precious friends I made it through my day! Also, thanks to a special papa and nana who love our kids so well while we work.

Got both of these delivered within 30 minutes of each other. I'm blessed!

Happy 4 months

My sweet Maci girl is 4 months old today. Crazy!! She is such a fun happy girl. Loves to eat, roll over, and snuggle with Mom! Thank you sweet Jesus for our baby girl!

Last Sunday Maci stayed with daddy while Reid and I had a swim date! He found some 'gobbles' at the pool and wore them the whole time. Crazy how brave he got with them on. Loved dunking his head in the water as long as he was wearing his 'gobbles'.

These pictures are hilarious. I love how cute he is in them!!

Cereal for dinner :)

Maci girl is loving her cereal!

Tummy time!

Cherishing these moments.. Love rocking Maci girl to sleep!

Merse and Reid

Two of my favorites.... They were enjoying charlottes web in the backseat together. So thankful Reid has had the chance to meet and spend time with someone so dear to me!

Everytime I would ask her if she was ok she would say ,"oh yes! I am just enjoying him!"

These pictures were from a different day. Such special memories though. We always enjoy our visits from Merse!
