Kes just started a little dance class last week! She was so excited about it! When we got there she became quiet and shy but I think she loved it. Hopefully, she'll come out of her shell a bit as the weeks go on! She loves this kind of stuff - her latest thing is that she is an acrobat at a circus. She'll be famous one day. =)

It's actually been a little bit cool in the mornings so we've ventured out to the park a few times! We've discovered that Brenan really digs the swings!
Don't these pictures make our backyard look green?! It's amazing what a little rain will do! A few weeks ago our backyard was nothing but dirt. Now it's a plush jungle of weeds! Anything is better than dirt though!

This is why it's never a good idea to buy Wal-Mart diapers.

The tabs were still stuck together but somehow the important part wiggled free! NICE. =) Do you like our fancy greenish/blue tile? It's awesome.

Bodess has been a little bit accident prone this past week! We were finally getting rid of her goose egg on the left when she ran into the corner this morning and got a new goose egg on the right! THEN when we dropped Anika off she reached in to grab a piece of paper right as I was sliding the door shut and got her arm squished. Poor little thing! I think we will do something fun today since her morning has been so rough!

Catching Up Again!

I keep falling behind on this blogging business! Remember the days when I posted at least once a week?!

First of all, Nathan talked me out of the private thing. It wasn't hard to do since I don't feel too strongly about it. It was fun to get all the comments though! It's nice to know that people still come by sometimes!

My birthday was fantabulous! Nathan spoiled me all day - I got to go to a spa and wander a book store all by myself in the morning and then that night we went out to dinner and a movie. Dinner was delicious and the movie was awesome! You really should see Star Trek. =)
The girls made cards for me and the words inside were priceless! They went straight to my treasure box. =)

Here is my super fancy cake. Yes. Tea lights again! I've got to get some candles before Keslie's birthday next month!

Brenan thought it was tasty! He is going to be FUN when his birthday rolls around!
Isn't it cool how I have 3 eyes??!!
The fire ants wanted to join in on our celebration! In honor of my birthday they made their first appearance (in a big way!!) in our backyard. This picture does NOT do them justice! First of all, you can't see the millions of ants crawling around or how far they expanded! They were EVERYWHERE!
On Labor day we met up with Brooke, Scott and the boys at the lake! They got a boat!! Wahoo!! We had such a fun day! I got to drive a boat for my first time. =) It was a blast and we can't wait for our next lake trip! I didn't get many pictures - here are a few:

Do you like Keslie's goose egg? You should have seen that it when she first got it! It was HUGE!!
Brenan is growing so fast! He is 10 months old!
I think he needs an update. He:
* weighs 21 pounds - hasn't gained much since he was 20.5 pounds at 6 months!
* Decided he was DONE nursing at 9 months. Little pill. =)
* Is into everything! He especially loves to help unload the dishwasher!
* Climbs stairs like a champ - since 9 months. He especially loves climbing since he knows it's off limits!
* Loves to clap and is starting to wave!
* Loves picking Anika up from school. He is SO jolly the minute we load up - it's like he knows!
* LOVES taking baths!
*He loves his mama!

The girls and I were supposed to go on a Mother/Daughter campout with our stake last weekend but it was cancelled due to rain! Yay for the rain! Bummer that we didn't get to go camping! We had a little girls night instead and had some friends over for soup and pedicures. The girlies LOVED getting pampered!

Happy Birthday!

I just want to wish a very happy 2-8 to my one and only! You're my very best friend and I can't imagine what my life would be like without you in it. Hope you have a wonderful birthday!
Love, Nathan
