Question of the Day

"Can God fly an airplane?"
                                
                                                      -Elliot, age 3

Today so far.

Started with a trip to the dentist for Elliot's first teeth cleaning. He did so very good, and has perfect little chompers! Sylvie watched a little, and giggled at the giant teeth and toothbrushes that were on the counter. Apparently giant teeth say, "ROAR"! I didn't know that before today. They were both given balloons with a smiley tooth on them (tied up with mint dental floss, hehe) that they insisted on taking in Wal-Mart. Two little children with balloons receive a lot of smiles while in Wal-Mart, and several older folks stopped to chat with them for a moment.

Clean teeth!

Lots of new shoes for the fall were out, and I couldn't pass these up.

Bunnies? Elliot and Sylvie say they're kitties.

When Sylvie tried on her new shoes at home, Elliot insisted on wearing his new pair that we bought a few weeks ago.

She's a fussy nugget.

Time for a nap!

Becky's Bridal Shower

I hosted a bridal shower for my best friend a couple weekends ago. I love party planning!

The banner reads "The Future Mrs. Peeples". My cousin cut it out for me on her Cricut. I'm starting to think I want need one of those.

Instead of a guestbook, I did a wishing tree.

The foods! Randy made it all. Except the little cupcakes were a joint effort - I baked them, Randy made the icing, Becky frosted them, and Elliot broke the cake stand they should have been on. The same cake stand that my wedding cake was on. :(

My pinterest board for the shower.

Tired girl.

Her cousin's birthday party, a bunch of swimming, staying out past nap time, a full tummy, and 5 minutes into a 15 minute drive...this little girl was GONE. Too bad that 10 minute nap in the truck resulted in no real nap time once we got home!

Almost August, and this happened on the first of July. Blackberry picking, trip to the mountains, peach picking, lake trip, and so much more that I still haven't blogged!

Birthday breakfast.

I turned the big 3-0 on July 1st. The realization that I'm now 30 still hasn't really taken hold, but it is strange to think that I'm no longer in my 20's. I've lived for three decades, and the things of my childhood are now considered "vintage". :) Thirty is kind of exciting in a way. It's like the transition into true adulthood - no longer am I playing at being grown-up, now I truly am an adult.

Randy made me some bacon, tomato, avocado biscuits for breakfast on the morning of the 1st, and followed it up with an amazing birthday gift. I'm now coming to you via my very own MacBook! I'm really starting to figure it out, and it's lovely!! We passed the gargantuan Dell desktop on to my mom-in-law and I'm loving all the counter space now available at the little desk area in the kitchen!
