Ecstatic to Announce.....

(again) that we are having another baby GIRL! I know most of you ( well, who knows who actually reads this blog) already know the news, but I am getting so dang excited that I just needed to announce it one more time. Yeah! I just can't believe that I am announcing more baby news but I guess that's just the way we roll at the Rigby house! I just couldn't be happier with the 2 kids we have that I can't even imagine what this one will be like. She will be coming around July 21, 2012!

Madeline jane's skiing!!

Over the Christmas break Stu and I wanted our main focus to be teach Madeline to ski. We had NO idea what to expect. When we got up there she couldn't erase the smile from her face. Her expressions "I'm skiing and I love it" just made us melt! One of Stu's and my favorite things to do is ski so to share this adventure with her was so exciting! Beware: there are a million pics but I just couldn't resist.. She looked so dang cute!!
 The cute thing INSISTED she carry everything herself.
 Testing out the snow! 

First run. Later on we purchased a harness that helped out so much. She was skiing by the end of our trip!

 Ski day with the cousins! 

End of the day. She has HAD IT!! But she still looks so dang cute!

Charles Dickens Festival..

Today we went to the Charles Dickens Festival in Skaneateles, NY where the town puts on a Charles Dickens Festival with Father Christmas and characters from Scrooge. It's a scenic little town on Skaneateles Lake with beautiful lake houses, the cutest little stores and beautiful scenery. It was warm this year so it made it a lot of fun!

Father Christmas and Madeline.

Madeline Jane turns 3!!

Ahh, my little stinker turned 3 over the weekend and she had quite the celebration.
First I want to say that I can't even express how much I love this girl. She is my best friend. She is sweet. She is loving. She cares for everyone and has the kindest heart. She gets really excited about the things I do. She tells me she loves me everyday, which I can't even express what it does to me when she says it. She is so sweet to her baby brother. She wants him with her at all times, and I need to really take advantage of it because who knows how long that will last, Ha. I am so in love with this girl and can't get enough of her.Happy Birthday sweet girl!!
We had a birthday party with all of Madeline's friends, went to breakfast, played queen of the castle at the park, Stu made us girls a nice dinner and we opened LOTS of presents! It was cute, Madeline was so excited for her party that she paced around the apartment all day long waiting for her friends to come. At one moment in the day as I was making her desserts, she looked at me and said, "mom, I'm so excited it ridiculous!" I knew right then she was going to have a fun Birthday! 
Madeline waiting for her friends to come to her party! She could not wait. 
 I gave her a little manicure while waiting for the guests.
Looks like she is making her last wish! 
Madeline has the cutest little group of friends here. I love her age group! Watching 12 little 3 year olds open gifts was pretty funny. They ALL wanted to help! 

Maddie with her friend Nina. She LOVES this girl and I will have to say this little girl is one of a kind! She talks likes shes 20 and always has the most excited look on her face.
Ice cream and candy toppings. I'm sure the parents hated me that I had SO much candy right after Halloween. muahaha! 
Stu's friends. 
Our lovely friends the Chapins! 
Cute Melissa, Mia and Ty..
Post party! Madeline playing with her toys while we kicked our feet up and relaxed. 
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET MADELINE! We love and adore you to death and hope you know it!

Barns, chairs and very cute kids...

Today my cute friend and I took our kids and did a photo shoot. Upstate NY has the most beautiful barns, fields and just places to take pictures. We found this cool barn just right around the corner from our apartment. We had fun but by the end, were totally exhausted! 

Thanks for the fun day Melissa!

Let the games begin..

This year Madeline gets to celebrate Halloween for a week straight. I think she has something everyday until the actual holiday. That is one of the many perks of being in school and living so close to such great friends. 

Here is my little Mini Mouse! Ford slept threw the whole party so there aren't any pics. (I also slacked on getting him a costume this year, whoops).
 Madelines new face! She loves pulling this face when I take the picture. I kind of love it too!! 
 It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get every kid to look at the camera!!
Maddie with her best friends! I love that she has made such great friends here in Ithaca. We miss our friends from last year but were lucky to find some great ones this year!
Thanks for the fun party Crystal and Ashley!

Short and sweet...

We had a short but very sweet visit from Stu's parents this weekend. They were passing through on business and we got to spend some quality time with them! Right when they arrived on Sunday we headed up to Palmyra, NY for some BEAUTY! Monday morning we woke up and went for a nice long walk around the gorges that surround Stu's school. 

A few extra pictures I got when the leaves were at their peak!!

 Thanks for the nice visit mimi and papa! Please come again soon!!!
