Greener Pastures

Our winter grass has come in.
It's soft and bright and we like it a lot.

Sam & Paige's Wedding

Jake's youngest brother got married yesterday. My camera didn't come out much, but I did take a couple pictures. Everything turned out beautifully and it was really a great day.

All is Well

We're doing fine here. The weather has cooled to the 70s for the weekend, and Sam is wearing pants, which makes him look like a little boy and not like my baby. The nerve.

In other exciting news, Uncle Sam is getting married tomorrow AND our winter grass sprouted in last night's rain. (yes, both those news items are equally exciting)

She's 4

Sophie has been counting down months, weeks, and days 'til her birthday. And now that it's finally here, we have one proud girl on our hands. The first thing she did this morning was ask Jake to take the training wheels off her bike, and she dressed herself from the box in her closet that holds clothes that are still to big to wear.

For her birthday this year, Sophie asked for the following:
  1. Drum
  2. Pogo Stick
  3. Clock
  4. Umbrella
  5. Tree House
  6. Guitar
  7. Footie Pajamas
  8. Sled

She got/will be getting 5 of those things.

Happy Birthday Sophie Girl! We love you!

Welcome, October. Thanks for the Weather.

For the first time since the beginning of May, I was able to tell Sophie "yes" when she asked me if she could go outside and ride her bike this morning. The Phoenix area was all about breaking heat records all through September and let me tell you Phoenix, no one was impressed.

But this morning brought cool breezes and cloud coverage and so we enjoyed the outdoors.

And then this afternoon, a quick 30-minute hail storm rolled through. It flooded the streets, banged on the windows, and howled through the air. And then it was gone and now, 20 minutes later, the streets are dry and the the sun is back. But we'll take what we can get.

30x30 Update: #26

It looks like I may be able to expand my business pretty soon. I started by ordering more bubble mailers from CSN (which came in less than 24 hours AGAIN). I'm very pleased with them. Professionally packaged, quality product, fast shipping.

I also almost have enough revenue to place another order. Hopefully before Christmas!

And, I started selling a lot of my flowers in earring form at GoodieJar. They're all super cute, just ask my model.

OK, I think that's enough links for one post.
