I’m a BIG girl now!

Jenna’s crib was ready to be converted into a toddler bed this weekend. She was VERY excited for her new BIG GIRL bed!! We changed her sheets and took the front of her crib off and replaced it with the new toddler rails. She had a great nights sleep (until 4am – which is longer than I expected her to last).

The Best Birthday

We all know that July is an AWESOME month. My birthday (shared with Joe Newkirk & Sydney Hyre) is on July 14th…. Jenna’s, July 12th. Sydney’s mom, Angi’s is on July 28th. You get the point…it’s just crammed full of awesomeness :)

This year was an exceptionally good birthday for me! I had a touch of the birthday blues the first part of the week (I think from pure exhaustion). I soon snapped out of it when I woke up to my house fully decorated. Streamers, balloons, the whole shabang! :)

Jenna also celebrated her birthday, along with Sydney & Clarin from school on Wednesday. They had cupcakes and a small party for the birthday girls. :)

Jenna licked her cupcake completely clean. I don’t think she took a single bite of the cake, but there was no icing in site!

Busy day huh?

My birthday was then celebrated with some of my FAVORITE people! My family. We went to Hibachi and had a fun dinner and just enjoyed each others company!

Is it sad that my 2 year old daughter already knows to cover her eyes for the fire even before the chef comes to our table!?!  Yeah, she’s a lil over dramatic!

Oh yeah…let me explain. Joshua was in Charleston Stage Company’s Summer Arts Camp for 2 weeks. He was in a “Stage Makeup” Class and this is typically what he came home looking like. In hindsight, I really wish I had gotten a picture of him EVERYDAY to make a lil collage. :( This was one of his MANY super cute faces from camp this year however. :) He REALLY enjoys camp and is super bummed that this one is over. We’ll be back next year!! He’s my little artist in the making.

I just LOVE this picture!!! How cute is my family!?!?7.14.2010 My Birthday 026 - edited


The picture above was the FIRST shot. Everyone after that kind of looked like this…. hahaha

I couldn't resist posting  this one up. Joshua smile is priceless! :) 7.14.2010 My Birthday 029

Happy Birthday to all of the July Babies we know & love!!

Water Ways

Petra, Joe, Jeff and I took the kiddos to Water Ways last weekend and had a BLAST! The girls had just as much fun as Joshua, I think.

Water + Picnic + Good Friends = GOOD TIMES!!!!
