When we got home today she walked through our house and cried on and off looking all around as if to say, you mean Tate is not here? It was so sad. However, McKenzie was happy to see us...which made us feel good! She kept saying MaMa and would not let me put her down. She was so sweet tonight when I put her to bed. She had finished her milk and was enjoying her pacifier as I was singing to her. All of a sudden she pulled out her pacifier and kissed me right on the lips and then put her pacifier right back into her mouth. It was so sweet.
Jason and I had a wonderful trip to Philadelphia. We had time to tour around and see lots of the "visitor" hot spots. I also got to spend all day Saturday with Cookie! Her parents were in town also and her sister so I got to see them as well. There is never enough time for Cookie and I to exchange all of our stories but we did a pretty good job! There was never a quiet moment!
Saturday night was the Waddell and Reed awards ceremony. Jason and I had to sit at a reserved table up front because he had hit certain levels this year to do so. It is very interesting to sit at a table of "big wigs." It was totally out of our comfort zone but very fun to say the least! I am so very proud of Jason! He got 4 awards last night. He was the only one from his office to get 4! Also, I must say that one of his awards last night was for bringing in the most new clients. Jason brought on 223 new clients last year and that is more than any one else. I am just so proud of him and how hard he works for our family. It is truly a blessing to be able to stay at home with McKenzie every day and watch her grow!

Here is a funny story...I just got off the phone with Amber. She said that when they put McKenzie to bed she cried. Not an unusual thing to do for her when going to bed in a different place. However, shortly after putting her to bed, Amber's next door neighbor came over to see if everything was all right. They picked up McKenzie's screaming through their son's monitor in his room! Now granted, houses where they live are very close together. However, leave it to my child to be so loud that the neighbor had to come over to make sure everything was okay! Thank God for good neighbors!
I am really exicted to go to Philadelphia. Not only because it is going to be a nice get-a-way, but because my Cookie lives in Philadelphia! If you don't know about Cookie she is my oldest, bestest friend! We do not get to see each other near as much as we would like...once, maybe twice a year. So I am looking very forward to spending Saturday with her!
Check out the Lamb Family blog on the right side of ours to track McKenzie and Tate the next few days! They are a pair to keep an eye on! Thanks Auntie Amber and U.B.! Enjoy having twins!

Jason and I leave for Philadelphia on Thursday. We are really excited! This is another trip with his company. Lots of people from his office will be there so it will be lots of fun! However, I am even more excited because Cookie lives in Philly now! For those of you who do not know Cookie is my best friend and has been since we were 3 and in nursery school together. I will fill you all in on our trip when we return on Sunday. McKenzie will be spending some time with Cousin Tate, Auntie Amber, and U.B.! She is very excited and can't wait to push bubble mowers with Tate!
