My niece's (Maddie) birthday is 3 days after Kohen's birthday. She had a "Wicked Witch" party at Mill's Park in Bryant. Maddie loves to sing to the Broadway soundtrack of "Wicked". Her favorite song is "Popular" :) When Shelley asked her what kind of birthday party she wanted to have this year, Maddie quickly said a Wicked Witch party! Maddie even had the real Wicked Witch come to her party (my SIL, Kristin, HA!). Poor Kristin went all out for Maddie-Boo. She painted her face, neck, arms and hands green, put on purple eyelashes, purple lipstick AND purple finger nails! And of course she had a witch hat and costume. Maddie never knew it was Kristin underneath all the make-up. She thought the Wicked Witch had really come to her party! She even asked Shelley if she would call the Wicked Witch after the party to see if she could come play the next day :)

Jason and I met in college at Henderson State University. In 2001 we started dating and got married May 31, 2003. I graduated with a BS in Art Education and Jason graduated with a degree in Biology/ Pre-Dental. A month after we were married, we moved to Kansas City so Jason could attend UMKC School of Dentistry. During the four years Jason was in dental school I was an art teacher at one of the best elementary schools in Missouri. I taught grades K-5 and absolutely loved it. We moved back to Arkansas (Conway) summer of 2007. Jason is a dentist in Conway and I am a stay at home mom. I miss teaching so much and will hopefully return to teaching when Kohen gets older. But as for now, I love staying at home with my sweet, sweet baby boy.
