It is also dedicated to Lindsay's mom, Kris, who recently said to me, "Taming the Hair Accessories! Okay, we get it!!!!" I didn't even know she read my blog. It made me laugh.
So to all of you who thought I'd fallen off the bloggy bandwagon, do not fear! I am back.
Here's a quick picture summary of some of the big events in the last five weeks. (I may have to revisit some of these in future blog posts):
I celebrated my birthday on Pearl Street in Boulder with my family. Such a fun night! Note the sign that says, "Please refrain from smoking in this area." Well, what if my hubby is smoking HOT? Does that break the rules?
We got flocked!
Addie lost her first tooth!
We hosted backyard VBS for the kids in our neighborhood, which culminated in a carnival on the last day. The highlight? Throwing pies at Gary's face!
We celebrated the 4th of July with cousins and grandparents.
Addie lost her 2nd tooth! Those pesky adult teeth were almost full grown behind them. No cute gap! Boo!
Gary's parents came from California to visit and the kiddos got to sleep in the camper with Grammy. What a special treat! And what a restful night for Grammy.
Abby had her little man, and I got a new nephew! Noah John Stone was born on July 12, 2011. He's such a baby doll!
Gary had a birthday too, but sadly, we have no pictures. We celebrated with a candle in his breakfast burrito that morning, and a rehearsal dinner that night since he officiated a wedding the next day. And he did such a GREAT job!
Right now, I'm hanging out with the littlest two while Gary is watching the girls in their second performance this weekend of "Hans Christian Andersen." Aren't they adorable? They play school children in the town of Odense, and also the parts of Jellyfish in the "Little Mermaid" ballet within the play. Tomorrow night is their closing performance, and of course all of their biggest fans will be there: Grandpa, Grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins... and of course they'll give autographs.
Emma goes to camp next week for the first time (!), Gary goes out of town for a week, we'll take a trip to California, and school starts. All in the next month (or less!). And also in the future, I'll be blogging more. Apparently my many fans demand it.
