Charlotte's Birthday

Not much to say. I love having parties, I hope people don't mind feeling like sardines in my little house. Just wait until baby #3 moves in.

Cousin Jonah.

The shy birthday girl. I lit the candles in prepartion for singing Happy Birthday, and she eagerly blew them out before we could start singing.

The second time, we sang first, then I lit the candles.

New favorite picture. So pretty.

Uncle Tim, assisting with cake.

A side of Charlotte I don't often see.

By the end of the night the birthday girl was running around, actually stomping around, in her bloomers and new twinkle toe shoes that light up.

On a slightly sad note. Today Charlotte busted her lip when climbing onto a chair (for breakfast) and then falling. She knocked one of her top front teeth loose, and I am a titch worried. I called the dentist, they said to leave it alone and it should "tighten up" but her smile is changed for a while now and it makes me sad. I have been on the verge of tears a lot lately anyway. It doesn't take much to open the flood gates.
I hope to post some more this week. I have a few pics from Joe's first day back to school and the Missouri River Race. In fact we were interviewed by Kathy Quinn of FOX 4 News. Let's just say the camera and I are NOT friends. Blah!

A Quickie

Not that I am the most frequent post-er, but the computer will be out of commision for a week or so, for some housekeeping details.

Summer is nearing its end. The pool is only open one more week, preschool starts in two weeks, and I am nearing gestational week 24. I now refer to the baby and Charlotte as "the girls". I love it.

Two weekends ago when I didn't have to work. David and I took the kids to the City Market. We were out of the car and walking at 0740 in the am. Whew, I was pretty impressed. I hadn't been to the market in years, and it was soooo much fun. Joseph even asked to come back. The only down side is I won't get to come back for quite some time. But, I think I found a new tradition. Downtown Overland Park has a Farmer's Market on Wednesday mornings starting at 0700. Last Wednesday the kids and I got there at 0800. I was very pleased. The produce was yummy, there was a band preparing to play, a small fountain for the kids to play in, a cafe for breakfast and a Farm to Market bread stand. Needless to say, we will be going for the next couple of Wed. So for anyone who reads, and is not working on Wednesday morning, come join us. Just find the old grandfather clock.
