Highlights from last week...

We had a very busy week and if I weren't so exhausted I would be doing the happy dance now that it is over.

We celebrated our anniversary with Italian take out (pizza hut pasta). We always eat Italian on our anniversary because we found a tiny, authentic family run Italian restaurant to eat dinner at on our wedding night. I had been sick all week and didn't want to miss my ballet class and Maya had been sick all week so this is what we looked like at our romantic anniversary dinner.


Maya and Eden were very quiet the whole time. Maya said "You guys just enjoy your dinner and talk about how much you love each other and we will be really quiet". (She took this picture of us) Aric got me an ipod dock for my car and I got him some head phones for the ipod. Not that exciting but we will be seeing Jerry Seinfeld next week...and that is exciting.

We celebrated Eden's Pre-School graduation. Which, if you haven't already noticed, got its own post so read on...plus Eden learned a new skill that also got its own post.

We finished the last week of school for Maya...sort of. She ended up getting sick with a fever that kept her from participating in all the festivites. As room mom, I was in charge of the end of the year party that celebrated all of the summer birthdays (Maya is one of those kids). So on Thursday we made cupcakes and took them to the party that she wouldn't be able to party at. She was a good sport about it. I think it bothered me more than it did her.


Last but not least, we hosted three other families as we took part in the community garage sale. We were up way late getting stuff ready and up way too early putting everything out. It was a long day but how can I complain when all I did was sit with my friends all day, people watching and barganing. And on top of that I made three hundred bucks! Needless to say, it was certainly worth the effort of going through all of our stuff and getting it garage sale ready. The only bad part....this is what I looked like afterward. That is a sunburn my friends.

I'm telling ya, I was in the shade most of the day with a sweatshirt and a blanket. I seriously don't know how this happened. My friends that hung out with me didn't look like this. There was no amount of cover up that could fix it so I went to church looking ridiculous. People think I went snow skiing, which is totally possible because it snowed in the mountains last week!

Are you peeling yet? Looks painful. We are headed to the beach next week and myself and my albino daughters will be trying with all of our might not to look as red as you do. You are still stunning when you are beet red and wearing flipflops:)!

Erin said...

Oooohhhhh that looks painful! I feel ya--my legs are just now starting to look semi-normal after our beach fiasco. :(

Happy late anniversary and soooo cute that Maya wanted you guys to have such a romantic dinner. :)

i can't believe you can take homemade treats to your daughter's school! is it public school? our school's here do not allow homemade treats anymore, and no candy either. stupid, stupid.

yikes, that's a bad sunburn. i'm sure it hurts worse than it looks too.

Sunburns or any kind of physical ailment makes for good blog material.

I'm trying to remember the last time Dan and I sat down to talk about how much much we loved each other... heck, I'm trying to remember the last time our kids purposely left us alone. Never happened.

Happy Anniversary - you guys are an inspiration! I started to peel today... just my forehead. It is sweet.

Lauren said...

I LOVE how Maya told you to, "enjoy your dinner and talk about how much you love each other". That child is a fabulous romantic!

calibosmom said...

OUCH! Happy Anni though! Sometimes celebrating at home is fun-especially when the kids can watch you enjoy each others company.

I thought your sunburn was hilarious, because I didn't know it was possible since you're already so dark.

We saw Jerry Seinfeld last time and LOVED it. I am so excited for you guys. His whole thing was on being a Dad and little kids- which we can totally relate to.

You're in trouble. You should have had us watch your kids while you guys celebrated your anniversary!

Lindsey said...
