They Did It Again!

Yep, Madison's squad took 1st place at the American Championships Regional competition. This is the second time they have qualified for nationals. Way to go Cosmos!

This time lots of Jodie's family was able to come watch. Grandma, Grandpa, Jill, Darren, Heather, Zach and Ashley all spent the day with us. THANK YOU for coming to support Madison. She was so excited that you could all finally be at one of her performances.


Families with Children from China (FCC)

Our local FCC group got together today at our favorite bounce house place. We had a great turn out and everybody had a lot of fun.


Playing with Dad and Stairs

Here are a few pictures of Meigan and Brian having fun. Also, Meigan can finally and safely do stairs on her own.


Way To Go Planet Cheer Cosmos!

We had another fun weekend. Brian and the kids went swimming at the hotel while Jodie got to go shopping! We had a very early morning and spent the day at the Cheer explosion. We were able to leave for lunch with Grandma Connie and the adults took Indian food into Chuck E Cheese with the kids. Everyone was happy. Dalton went back home with Grandma and the rest of us went back to the competition to watch the youth and senior squads compete.

Madison's squad took 1st place in the mini division. Planet Cheer also won first place in the Youth and Senior divisions and the Seniors won the Grand Champion award as well.


Madison's 9th Birthday!


Today was Madisons 9th birthday. This year she was given the choice of a "friends party" or a sum of money. Lucky for mom she chose the money. Tonight she chose Papa Johns pizza for dinner, then we had family over for Giant cupcakes, ice cream and presents. Happy birthday Mads, Maddy, Madisony!

P.S. Brian thought it would be fun to surprise her for lunch so he went to her school at lunchtime to take her out to her restaurant of choice. She refused to go and was mad he even tried! Did we say it was her 9th birthday? (sounds like a teen birthday to me)


Portraits of Meigan

My friends brother-in-law is an awesome photographer( tavisjohnson.blogspot.com ), he was in town and came to our house to take pictures of Meigan. Here are just a few of our favorites.
