Earlier this week my friend Randi, who is an amazing photographer, called me and asked if she could do a photo shoot with Camden so she could try out some new equipment. I, of course, was thrilled and I rushed to her house with Camo. Well he decided to freak out and cried inconsolably for 10 minutes then he fell asleep. I felt horrible and thought it was a total waste of time until Randi posted three pictures that actually turned out. This is my favorite...
go here to see more of her work...she's got the skillz and equipment that I wished I had.
Eden has had a loose tooth for weeks. If I had a penny for every time she had me wiggle it to see if it would come out, I could pay off Camden's adoption! She woke up last Sunday morning just positive it was ready to come out, she said..."I think it's going to be another bloody Sunday..." because it was a Sunday when I pulled her last tooth out.
Well that darn thing wouldn't come out. By this Sunday it was seriously gray because it was barely attached to her gum. Her old primary teacher sat behind us in sacrament meeting and saw how Eden kept wanting me to touch her tooth, so she offered to pull it out for Eden after sacrament meeting. I never thought Eden would let her do it, but I was wrong. We went into the bathroom right before primary and it took all of two seconds and that darn thing was out....thanks Melissa!
Friday I was a hair model at a presentation my hair dresser was speaking at. It was my first time as a hair model and it went pretty well, all I did was sit there and have a bunch of strangers look at me while my stylist talked about my hair issues and face shape. A little awkward but she needed my hair so I was there for her.
Saturday we rocked the garage sale like nobody's business!
We made over four hundred dollars selling the kids clothes that they have grown out of, a bunch of toys (mostly baby dolls and baby doll accessories...I'm still so sad that my girls are out of that stage **sniff, sniff**) and A's discontinued carpet samples. So even though we didn't get to celebrate our anniversary we were able to make enough money to almost cover last months attorney's fees...so clearly worth the effort and sacrifice.
Saturday night we were invited to an Asian themed dinner. We were assigned a dessert. Since there are no Asian desserts that sound appealing to me I made this cake...it's all frosting, thank you very much.
Oh and I saved the best for last...A and I made a deal right after we were married that we wouldn't get each other gifts for special occasions, instead we would save that money and use it for vacations. Well A never, EVER, remembers the deal. He always surprises me with something and I never get him anything. This year I was actually expecting him to stick to the deal because Camden is our present to each other for the next...oh...ten years!!!! But nope, he was sneaky and cashed in some points from his company's incentive program and got me a new ipod!!!
I was so shocked and so happy! And now my gift to him is my old ipod since he doesn't have one. Too bad he has to share it with the girls so he has lots of Taylor Swift, Jonas Brothers and High School Musical to rock out to.
So that about does it for this post. There is so much more to blog but I have to take the next two days to get my house together, it has been neglected for almost two weeks!!!! YIKES! And come Wednesday, summer vacation is on so I will officially have no free time. I am actually excited about it. I am looking forward to having my girls around. Even though they drive me mostly crazy, I realize how fast time is flying by and I want to enjoy them as much as possible. After all, I only have nine more summers with Maya until she goes to college...okay that thought is making me depressed, plus it's twenty two minutes passed my bedtime....I'm out.
