This was Madeline's 3rd Christmas with us, she is now 3 1/2 years old & is in Love with anything from "Frozen". So for our Christmas Card this year we decided to dress in hints of blues. Photo was taken by Madi's Godfather Ryan on a white background, then daddy designed the "Frozen" themed graphics. Madi was overjoyed with "Elsa's" castle in the far back. When she first saw the card she said to us "wow, it's beautiful! May I put it in my room?" I had made her dress a few months ago to wear to a friend's wedding, and since we didn't have any clear photos of her in it, we thought it would be perfect for our card.
A brief update on our daughter: Madeline continues to thrive at home. She's talking a lot more, and has a sweet, funny personality. She loves puzzles, legos, paint, and play dress up. She's been a busy little girl too. She attends a preschool-like parent & tot class for two hours every Friday, participates in our Parish's children's ministry where she dances Folklorico and participates on occasion in the children's choir. She completed her first year of Ballet/Tap dance class at Valverde School of Performing Arts, and in her 3rd month of beginning Piano also at Valverde School of Performing Arts. She was invited to perform in two live shows, the summer program being the largest, which showcased at the Lewis Family Playhouse, where she was part of the opener/closer in addition to her ballet recital. We couldn't be more proud of our daughter, and we love how much joy & laughter she has brought to our family. We are lucky to be able to work from home as well, so that we can be with her daily and enjoy her blossom.
I will try to update more often, as I realize this blog still gets visitors who have followed Madi's story.
Merry Christmas to all, and may 2015 bring you much happiness and joy!
