After her bath and her banana, she sat down and read one of her favorite books, God loves you. It was so nice to spend time with her and only her. She is a sweet girl, learning and changing so much every day. I love this time that we get to share.

1. This adorable dress I found at Old Navy for $12! Fashion accessories(smile, sneaks, toothpaste stain on the front) provided by Lindsey.
2. A semi-clean kitchen...just kidding. Our new fridge & stove! Oh, and the new green paint on the wall. Still have to pick up a new range hood, but I am okay til then.
3. My crazy hair 2 year old singing her heart out with bunny ears on...all the while holding a margarita glass(hey, they were on clearance and are so much more fun to play with). What was she singing? See you again from Miley Cyrus. I told you guys, Disney is invading our home and not Mickey Mouse(that I could handle). 4. My wonderful husband priming the back room. Finally. Am I the only one who sings that song by Cece Peniston whenever I say finally?I can't wait to paint it and make it our playroom.5. That my husband is happy with my gourmet sandwiches of swiss, turkey, lettuce and tomato. Seriously...include some pickles and some iced tea and he is sooo happy!6. Lindsey wants to help me cook all the time. Here she is perfecting the art of mashed potatoes. Really, could her smile get any bigger or cuter?
7. That our kids are this excited about FFFNOs. What you don't know about these? We call them Family Fun Friday Night Out. We hit Sonic....and I meant to make Jill proud and order a bag of ice, but forgot. Next time.
Oh and how could I forget this wonderful highlight of my week so far.
From my friend, Lori, I rec'd this huge box. Okay, yes we are partners in her fall swap and I knew she would be sending something nice, but I didn't expect all these goodies!Can you see why I was jumping up and down with giddiness? She was so generous and sweet to send me 8 pumpkin placecard holders, yankee candles, fall pasta, very cool autumn dishtowels, Bath & Body works antibacterial soap in my FAVORITE scent...irresistible apple! And the nicest sign in the shape of a gourd that says...Friends Gather here. I absolutely love it!Did I mention that she included candy corn and peanuts for my sweet tooth? Also, the most adorable card w/a sweet message inside, along with a basket with a bunch of fun ribbons tied to the handles. I can tell you this box made me pretty excited for fall to arrive.
Lori, thank you so much for it all. AND for hosting the swap. You are really a sweet person.

I think this shot explains alot about how she was feeling. A little nervous.
And then, this is where my husband wins Husband of the year. He calls me on the cell phone so we could talk
signing/stamping into his new classroom.
Finding the shirt with his name on it,
and waiting anxiously in line to go into class. He did so well. He kissed me good-bye with no drama and I couldn't have been prouder.
When we picked up Lindsey I had planned on taking some photos of her in her room and with her teacher, but there was drama. She couldn't find her lunchbox....the lunchbox that I just filled with all those "greener and pricier" containers. The search was on. We looked everywhere and I happened to look in a 3rd grade class and found it. Did the teacher even notice that there were 4 lunchboxes still in her basket and no children in the school? I wonder if anyone else "misplaced" theirs in her class. After we found it, she was able to pose for a pic. I love that you can see the sky in the school door windows.
Taking a quick drink from her found thermos. All was right in the world again. We then went to pick up Tyler and was met with so much resistance to the camera that I don't even have any that look like the pic from above. He had a really good day and was so pleased to have Musical Theatre and Drama on his schedule. Hope it is a good year for him.
Natalie was happy that it was the 1st day of school, cause you know that there is always a trip to DQ involved. Please note, Lindsey's happiness is all over her face.
