Summer pics 2012

Sarah Jeffords outdid herself. I'm in love.

I can't wait to show the ones in her christmas dress.... But you'll have to wait until after Christmas cards go out! Bet the suspense will just about kill you! :)

Sarah was so much fun to work with. At one point we were both singing to try to get o to laugh/smile and o told us we were hurting her ears! Lol!!

Dad is 60!!

All he wanted for his birthday was hamburgers and beer. And we delivered.

Thank to Brittany at Dixie Papiere for whipping up some invites in record time!

He was the drum major in high school!

The pic was a surprise.

O kinda stole the show. :)

Yes. This was the best pic of me and my child.

Matt, Brock and John manned the grill outside. Really Brock. The other two just supervised.

Still loves her princess 4 wheeler.

Mom and some of her friends.

Brock, mr. Big, o and Jackie.

After dinner.

He cut the cake before we sang so I had a re-do!

For some reason the only pic I have of dad visiting.

And sadly no family photo. We really dropped the ball on that one. But he had a great time and that's what matters. Happy bday dad!!

Let me start by saying that i have the weakest stomach of anyone you'll ever meet. Riding in the back seat of a car ranks up there with having my tooth pulled; I never want to do it again. Roller coasters are a negative. In jr high I was riding the tilt-a-whirl at our local fair and the operator had to stop it bc I was turning blue. I'd quit breathing. So one can imagine what jumping on a trampoline does to me. We had a trampoline growing up. And I was fine on it. Not so much anymore.

I just need to brag on the boy. He is a champ with Olivia. Poor thing has to play by herself at home well, because she obviously doesn't have a sibling. She's always begging me/the boy/anyone at our house to play with her. The trampoline is my limit. I just can't do it. But the boy obliges most of the time. I'm so thankful for that. He steps in when I physically and mentally can't.

She loves for him to bounce her. Thanks, boy!

Weekend in photos

Friday after work I told o we were going to get a snocone. This was her response. :)

Then to visit Jenny and John. Jenny gave o a new shirt.

Then home for a nail party. My nails looked GOOD! :)

Then we played til it was dark!

Making SURE this was the dance bag she wanted.

With her shoes in her bag. First dance shoes. I may have teared up...

Met Courtney for lunch sat. Then hung out at her house for a while playing catch up.

Sunday before church.

Tech fan day. We had to wear the new shirt.

Monday night at sundown.

Artists I tell ya.

First field trip!

Omg. This was a big day! O was pumped about her trip to the movies. I took our morning pic this morning thinking it would be all I had to document this day. Wrong! When we got to school this morning mrs. Brooksie told o she was the leader for the day. I made the comment that I wish I had my camera. She looked at me and said "I'll take pictures and send them to you." my heart may have skipped a beat; a teacher that speaks my love language. So I gave her my number and pretty much got a step by step of the trip! I joked to her that I was "that" mom and she assured me she was that mom too. So I don't feel nearly as stupid as I most likely sound!

Lining up to go get on the bus.

She's talked more about riding on the bus than the movie they saw!

I'm thrilled to have pics of this day!!

I did what I set out to do this weekend. NOTHING!! And it was fab. Friday night we had date night. Saturday we ran to Monroe for lunch and to visit the boy's grandmother and today we went grocery shopping. I napped both saturday and today. I really think I am still catching up from my trip last weekend and all the late nights watching the Olympics. The highlight this weekend was getting o signed up for dance this fall! We have a trip to Monroe planned next week for dance shoes, leotards, skirts, etc but I couldn't resist picking up some stuff at Walmart today!!

She is sooo excited about dance classes! And I am too!
