I have so much to blog and, as usual, so little time. I have a lot to say about Eden leaving first grade. I'm not okay with it. I have a lot to say about Maya going into fifth grade...I'm TOTALLY not okay with that! I will post more about that stuff later.
So here is what's been going on...
The deck is almost done. It looks so amazing, now I have been trying to get the rest of my yard looking decent.
I lost my camera. I have had it for five years and it disappeared. I think it got stolen out of my car one night. So I got a very fancy pants new one. I had it for a day and new that it wasn't for me. There is a neat story behind that story that I might share with you someday. Instead I took it back and got the updated version of my old cannon. LOVE IT!
I've been working on my kitchen. I made new curtains and tonight I will begin painting the island. Tomorrow the red walls and next week the cabinets...ya hoo! I will post pictures when I'm done with it all.
The weather has totally sucked. I'm sorry but that is the only word I can think of that adequately describes it. It's only been the past three days that it's actually felt like summer! Yay for 7o degrees!
The only show I make time to watch is So You Think You Can Dance. It brings me so much joy! I still have issues with the format this season but every time I see Neal I get over it.
Maya broke her foot. Thankfully it was a very minor break. She had to stay off of it for a week. She got crutches because her parents are too cheap to buy the boot and she got to be pushed around the school in a wheel chair.
This is Eden in her "Africa" costume. It was, by far, my favorite costume to make and I didn't get a decent photo of it!
I made these costumes too. I totally channeled my inner Dixie Chick and Pat Benatar.
Me and Kerry the fearless room moms! I always get stuck with the "difficult" group. One of the girls in Maya's class is oppositional defiant...I could not keep track of her to save my life. After three hours I was so exhausted!
My friend Kerry took some good pictures with her fancy camera, so when she shares them with me, I will share them with you.
We had our annual community garage sale which we totally rocked, thank goodness because it paid for our Ikea shopping spree.
We are loving our season tickets to our hometown arena football team...GO SHOCK! #1 BABY!
I had another incident with my OAM neighbor (the cat fight guy). This time it was the dog barking like crazy, in my ear, while I was weeding. Aric sprayed the dog with the hose...a light spray...and it got the OAM all hot and bothered. We are getting privacy bushes planted ASAP!
Another one of my dearest friends (Stacey) moved. I made her a photo book with some highlights of our almost seven year friendship.
Camden got hand, foot and mouth disease. It was yucky. And now the girls are totally paranoid about getting "the disease."
We celebrated Aric because he is such an awesome dad.
We got him lots of presents.
He celebrated himself by making some YUMMY ribs. He knows better than to put me in charge of such a special meal.
The girls had dentist appointments and got haircuts. Maya may need braces or a retainer...here come the orthodontist bills!
...Eden is loosing teeth like crazy...
...and C is making me crazy!
And that's about it.
