OK.... We are also gearing up for Drew's Construction party coming up in September roun' here.  I want to put a picture of this handsome foreman on his invites...but I didn't capture anything that I am in love with this morning.  I really want something like I found below, on the internet.  Anyone have an extra bulldozer lying around I can borrow?  If not, Drew will be breaking his first law in the near future, because I just may have to sneak onto a construction site...What I will do for a cute pic.  I make myself sick.

I have created a little posing monster in Evan. He is constantly saying, "is this a good pose", "is this good light", "is this a good background"?  I absolutely love it.  Most of the time, it isn't a good pose though. He could have sworn him swinging on the lightpost was like the best pose ever.  He just hasn't grasped, the more natural the better. But I love it nonetheless!!!  Drew is a work in progress...

Tuesday, July 26, 2011 bout let me take a picture with you and Evan where you DON't look like you are being tortured?  Evan, maybe don't squeeze quite so hard around D's neck?  Mkay Thanks. You guys almost got it right in that last picture, if Evan didn't look so disinterested, I'd be satisfied.

Sweet Drew

My sweet Drew has to have blood work this week.  Say a little prayer that they can get blood from him. Last week they tried 3 times without any luck.  But this little trooper barely wimpered.  He's so super brave.  Wish I were half as brave as he is!!! 

It's ALMOST August....

It's almost August so you know what that means.....Party Planning Season for Me!!!!!!!!!!! I'm basically a wanna-be alot of things....and a Wanna-Be party planner is on my top 5 list of wanna-be stuff.  So I finally convinced Evan finally decided on a Knight/King/Castle theme for his 4th birthday.  If you "asked" him what he wants for his birthday theme a few weeks ago, he would have said a Scooby Doo, Super Hero, Buzz Lightyear theme which basically just amounts to all the recent birthday parties he has attended.  As much as I really wanna make a Batman Scooby cake...I am a woman who likes stuff that makes sense and flows.  So I thought about some of Evan's favorite toys, and he loves playing with his Dragon Castle and all of the little knights that go with it.  So I really talked that up for a while and I finally convinced him that would be an awesome Birthday theme.  Especially since half of his friends are girls... and we can incorporate some princess stuff to go along with the king/castle stuff.  Anyway, get prepared for a lot of birthday and party talk in the coming weeks.  LOVE LOVE LOVE me a good kid party.

Commence Mourning NOW

 last night the girls and I threw a going away bash for the Olson family.  It started with a blissful pedicure at the spa, and an amazing dinner and a "few" drinks followed.  So there was a little bit of table dancing, some husbands crashed it, there was some singing on stage with the cover band, lots of dancing, a random cougar who snuck into one of our pictures... but it kept our minds off of the task at hand, which was to say goodbye to a dear friend.  Also, I traded in my Pacifica for a Lamborghini, a yellow one at that!  The only downside is, it came with a little short guy with an obnoxious shirt, who smokes a cigar.  Darn it. No really, not sure what I will do without you JEN!  Probably cry myself to sleep every night and think about nights like last night!  Love ya girl! You have been such a true and loyal friend over the last 3 years, and you have most certainly kept me sane (well, as sane as I get).

Leaps and Bounds

Evan, overnight, has started maturing by leaps and bounds. All of the sudden he is dressing himself from head to toe, and tantrums have dramatically decreased.  Ahhhh.  I know I'm not in the clear yet... but life is most certainly easier as of late.
