I had a great birthday! I started with a 4 mile run with my running buddies....we've been running together twice now. We had lunch at Olive Garden, one of my faves, and Mark and Kailey surprised me there! Kailey had been talking all week about my birthday party being a Hello Kitty party. Can you tell what we've talked about in planning her upcoming birthday party? So she and Mark went to Build-a-Bear and stuffed and dressed a Hello Kitty for me.

Margaret wanted to have birthday dinner for me at her house. Dinner is ALWAYS wonderful at Margaret's. She will always think of everything from the table being fully decorated to dessert. Kailey was taking pictures. Pastor Dan and Miss Judy joined us as well.

Just a quick update...Lexi has had her shoes on most of the time since Monday, even sleeping in them. I did get them off of her in the middle of the night last night. She woke up with a fever, and so was okay to take them off. Kailey is having an sleepover with her friend Emerie. I'm sure there will be good stories from Ro. With Lexi asleep and Mark out of town, I was at a loss of what to do with myself!
Katie has shared some pictures from the wedding. Here's some of our highlights!

I just realized it is August 3rd! No wonder my Aunt Ruth said she had not heard from us for a while! I started a post one day, and (big surprise) got distracted! I also did find a new program for writing blogs and publishing. Maybe I figure that out one day! So I have some back posting to do, and lots of pictures to share. Kailey is growing and changing so much! We got the info for her new preschool on Thursday. She started September 8th. Its an Extended Day program (9:15-1:15), and I think it will help equip her better for kindergarten next year. And maybe a better transition for Lexi adjusting to Kailey not being around again. Lexi learned how to put her shoes on today. She was so excited she didn't want to take them off!

We were with Jason and Katie for the weekend. They moved into their new house. We owed Jason help...and help the next time, and the next time. The weekend was not free from challenges, the biggest one being sleep! We have taken Lexi's side of the crib off, because she was starting to climb out and didn't want her to get hurt. So that posed the problem of what do we do with Lexi sleeping? We got Jason's air mattress and used sleeping bags. 2 Big Girls!
