Dance Recital

Saturday was Makenna's dance recital from the Dance Depot. She has loved every minute of dance class this year and was lucky enough to have her Grandma Southwick and Aunt Cali be her teachers. It has been such a great experience for her and she has learned so much. We are really grateful that she has had the chance to take dance from her grandma. And all I can say is she just has the cutest twist ever, but I can't seem to get the video to upload! It worked with Kason rolling over but now it won't load. Oh well, you'll just have to believe me when I say she was so cute out there on the stage!

Rolling Over

I finally figured out how to upload videos so here is Kason rolling over. He's been doing it for a month now and has become a pro. But here he is his first day figuring it out.

3 Year Old Stats

I took Makenna to the doctors today for her 3 year old check up. She was a little confused because for the past year we have been either going to mommas doctor or Kason's doctor. She told me she wasn't sick and didn't know why she had to go. It was pretty cute. But here are her stats at age 3.

Height 37.5 in - 63%

Weight 28 lbs - 31%

BMI 14 - 11%

She's just staying kind of tall and slender. What a lucky girl.

And just on a side note, you really know how much a daddy loves his little girl when he is willing to walk the whole store of Home Depot in search for a lost pink purse. Makenna had taken her purse into the store with us tonight and put it down on a box and left it there. Weston is just the best dad and went back just to find it. (While he walked up and down every aisle for it, I went up to a customer service desk and asked for the lost and found and there it was.) We had one happy girl once we found it!

Makenna's Happy Birthday

Makenna refers to birthday's as Happy Birthdays. It is just the cutest. So yesterday she had the happiest birthday.

It started out by us going to lunch with Wes at McDonald's

Then we had "princess" mac and cheese for dinner. She was not happy at all about her pink dinner. We had to make her a new bowl that was yellow!

Then it was party time!

We invited all the cousins that are Makenna's age to come over for a party. We played "Musical Poison Apple" from Snow White, Cleaned like Cinderella, and colored princess pages. We also ate some yummy apples and dip. It was lots of fun and I think the kids had fun too.

Makenna got a princess costume of Briar Rose for her birthday

And she got the matching barbie doll

The one thing she asked for, for her birthday was a slide. She was so excited to get it!

Makenna really wanted a Snow White cake for her birthday. It was tricky but I think it turned out pretty good in the end.

Here are all the cousins that dressed up and came to Makenna's Princess Party
Brandon (Batman), Carli (Snow White), Makenna (Briar Rose) Shali and Kyanna (Princess)

Thanks to everyone who came, called, or sent cards to made this such a special day for our little princess!

Makenna's Three!

Yesterday Makenna turned 3 years old. I just can't believe it! Three years has just flown by! It's just crazy how they grow up so fast. Well I just wanted to list a few things about her at this age.
  • She has been potty trained for almost a year now.
  • She has been potty trained at night for 2 months.
  • She loves mac n' cheese, pizza, chips, apples, "gapes" and "hock dogs"
  • She loves her little brother and is always sharing her dolls with him.
  • She loves to dance. If music is on, she is dancing.
  • She can do everything herself. Get dressed, go potty, get in her car seat. She is very independent.
  • She loves princesses and her favorite is "Nose White"
  • She loves to play outside.
  • She loves Curious George (or George the monkey to her). If you say curious in any sentence she can pick it out and say that's not Curious George.
  • She loves to go to nana and papa's house. She has three categories of grandparents: nana and papa taz, nana and papa chips, and nana and papa amy-shellie
  • She loves to go for walks to the park, read books and go to church
  • She loves to go to dance with her grandma and aunt Cali. We are starting gymnastics next month so hopefully she loves that too!
  • She has an imaginary friend named Davey who is a girl apparently.

Makenna is such a joy to have in our family. We love her so much and can't wait to see what this next year brings!

What an Imagination

Makenna has been so silly lately. She just comes up with the most random things. On their way home from church the other week Makenna had her fists balled up and Wes asked her what she had in them. Her response was "my friends." Like she was holding her friends hands. Well she is always pretend talking to them and bringing them in the car with us but yesterday one of them was given a name. Makenna's imaginary friend is named Davey. I have no clue where she came up with that but I just think it is so adorable! I don't ever remember having an imagination like her when I was younger and I just think this is wonderful. She is just so creative and imaginative. Oh and the monster's ate dinner with us tonight. Where does she come up with this stuff?
