would you like a table with your table?

Alternate title: Who is this grown child in my back yard being strange and eating a picnic at a table on top of the picnic table.

the big day

We weren't going to have a party. It wasn't really a real party. Just family. Thanks to my bham people that wanted to come I was forced into celebrating instead of moping. The girls and nate and I had so much fun during the week creating stuff for her and her big day. I realize as I'm posting these that I missed much of that. We made felted eggs and a funny doll. We folded huge pompoms and painted recycled flowers. We decorated, cleaned, used two rolls of tape to wrap presents and picked the first spring flowers for our birthday girl who we welcomed so joyously one year ago on the first day of spring in 2009.

let's try this again

Taken a couple of weeks ago. And much more fun than her non smash birthday cake eating which I am still avoiding posting on the hopes of pretending it didn't happen. I was just putting this one up so you can see her teeth. That other top one is finally coming in, I'll miss that one tooth grin! This one has an accompanying video of her using a spoon but again technology is out to get me today.

not her birthday

I realize there is no picture. And I have no idea why. Let's hope it's on bloggers end and that it will magically be fixed if I just wait until tomorrow(this is how I approach much in life, sadly it rarely works). Because I've been posting pictures the same way for three years now and I have no idea what I might have done wrong. I'm not deleting because it's already feeding into the readers and I want you guys to know that I'm trying. I really am!

Do you even see the header? Because I'm not.

***it's fixed so just ignore all of the above. it was apparantly blogger. woot**

Let her jump on the trampoline while so I could play with a flash bounce card I made. Turned them black and white so all the junk in the back isn't quite as obvious. But now you know I'm not lying when I say the house is(was?) a disastrous wreck. It's looking much better - more like a home! after a good solid mimi visit this week. A lot of elbow grease but oh so worth it! Things are hung on walls (that are finally finished being painted!) and book shelves are up and stuff is put away.
Wish I could ave captured er trying to jump and then back off the tramp. She had a little system going on. Jump, sit, back off, repeat.

Mimi took E to a rodeo! I took these just before they left. Mimi has some on her camera from at the rodeo - her face was all grin the entire time.
