We love you Madison........

Today for our Sunday family lunch we had a farewell to Madison. My family has fallen in love with her and it is very hard on them to see her leave. We had burgers and the fixins, and a special cake for Madison that had many candles for her to blow out.

She got several gifts, I think she thought it was her birthday. Dr. Sam and Brandon got her a doll bed, and Mimi and Papa bought her a new baby doll. She could NOT figure out how to get her AND the baby in the bed. So she put the baby on the ground and started over.
But she stopped to feed her first.....
Dr. Sam tried unsuccessfully to get Madison to lay her baby on her back and not on her tummy, as is the new way of thinking for today's babies. Madison would NOT put her on her back, no matter what we told her. I think Dr. Sam broke out in a cold sweat at one point......
The baby just got pushed to the side when Madison decided to join her in the bed.
It took several folks to put together the princess castle.....Lucas read the directions while Brandon worked on it......
Mr. Tom and Brenda put on the finishing touches......
Dr. Sam and Brandon, and Miz Carolyn and Mr. Tom got Madison many new books to read. Madison likes to be read to at naptime and bedtime. We will enjoy the new stories.

Hopefully Brandon got some good pictures and I can snag some to post later. For the first time in a long time, Papa had the camera and I think he forgot what to do with it.....
Here are Brandon's pictures: http://picasaweb.google.com/brandon.dieterich/MadisonSParty
