Birthdays and blackeyes!

Joey turned 30 this week, and we celebrated four times! Saturday we went to Friday's with Grandpa Kent. Wednesday, we all went over to Alana and Jeff's for pizza with the fam. Last night Kate came over to babysit Natalie while I surprised Joey with a night out to dinner with friends. He thought it was just going to be us, but there were 10 of us! Then tonight I made ribs for the first time -- they were nummy. Natalie LOVED them, as soon as we gave her an entire rib instead of just pieces of meat. We also had swimming lessons and ECFE this week. Natalie suffered a black eye at ECFE, but she's fine! Those toys hurt when you fall face first onto them! Natalie and I are both sniffly so hopefully whatever's on it's way doesn't stay long!

Grandma Lee is safely home in MN after a week with baby Brooke and crazy Annika! Natalie was pretty excited to talk to her today. That's all for now! Happy Weekend!

Lotsa news

Wow, it's been a while...

Natalie is so excited about her new cousin and can't wait to meet Brooke this Christmas!!! Our little girl also had some excitement closer to home: Last night was her first day of school (sort of). She was the cutest and best-behaved little kid in her ECFE class and enjoyed the event (even though she did smash her face in the mini slide). Then today (clearly the most exciting news of all), the little Elmo was in the cheapie bin at Target so Natalie got her very own Elmo! So far she loves it, but it's only been about 15 minutes. Only time will tell if it's a keeper!
