Fixed Jane's Princess dress that had a bit of ripped from all the love it receives. She rushed to put it on and her shoes and her tiara from Averie's b-day party. I had to put up her hair... Seriously. Where did the princess thing come from? It's all we hear right now, "but I'm a PRINCESS"...we've never refered to her as one, she doesn't watch many movies with them, a few books here and there. Whew. It's a lot of work raising a princess, that's for sure!

Summer Corn

Finally got some good corn; it's been disappointing thus far. Jane was a good helper doing some shucking-even though she thinks the silk is too icky and tickly and gross, so I have to do most of it. She also thinks that she is hilarious trying to 'eat' it before it's cooked. Such a silly kiddo.

Jane had her 1st Dentist appt today. What an awesome job...she was chatty the whole time. We have the best hygienist-so nice. She got scraped and flossed and polished and fluoride, too! Best part--she lays back for Dr. Bouhana to check her after the cleaning--and says, "my baby poops and pees and crys a lot!" Gotta love it.

How sweet are these girls?? Jane is obviously ecstatic to be able to hold her baby sister.

Wish we could spend more time outside, but the mosquitos have been horrible this summer. Crazy weird cool summer days are great. I'd spray Jane down with bug spray, but that doesn't really work for Penelope. Short jaunts outside will have to do.

Isn't she fabulous??

Peek-a-who was one of our favorite books for Jane-we had to buy it after seeing it at the library. She wanted to read to Penny, so figured that was a good one to start. Penny seems to like it, too!

Summer weekends

Seems like in the middle of winter we look forward to lazing about once summer rolls around. In reality, seems more like we run around all crazy and busy once summer is here! We had a great weekend, Debbie's b-day get together on Saturday and Reynolds picnic on Sunday. Jane got to play with Averie and then with some of my cousins kids at the lake. Got a few free weekends and then busy again for most of August. Mike has one side of the upstairs framed in now-at least the ceiling and outline for the closets, so we're getting there slowly.

Sing a little song

Jane was 'writing' in a journal on her side of the basement and singing a little song about loving mommy and daddy and I started e-mailing Mike about how cute it was. I ended up basically transcribing her singing. Just way adorable. Of course, my favorite is 'I love momma with all my heart'. Seriously, can't get much better than that. I had to do a layout before I forgot too much of it! I also got yummy kraft paper last time I was in Kalamazoo. I love using it for layouts.

Penelope is grinning and smiling. She seems to think she's pretty funny. I love it.

Cherries Layout

Skipping around with my scrapbooking, but I had done up most of this page earlier this year with papers I didn't use for Arlyn's baby girl album. Mike took Jane to Spicer's over the weekend to get some cherries, and I couldn't resist printing out some photos and getting this one put together.

4th of July

Great day-breakfast at the French Laundry, Parade in Downtown Fenton, helping Gram D move some stuff, and fireworks in Fenton later in the evening. Whew.

Check out the little diva! She is such a girly girl sometimes.

Happy Anniversary to us!

Nine years. Just crazy that we've been married for NINE years. We're heading out for Sushi tonight, and I can't wait! Did get a LO done last night...Jane is my Honey Bunny, been calling her that for a long time now.
