Today is my birthday. Boo. As much as I'd like to forget about my birthday this year, I know my wonderful friends won't allow it. This is going to be kind of a weird birthday because Franny is starting a potty training program at school. It's a 2-day long program of intense potty-training, involving follow-up at home. As I understand it, I'll be spending the majority of the afternoon in the potty next to Franny, reinforcing her with a big 30 minute party (toys, treats, movies, food) every time she properly uses the toilet. I am excited that Franny is moving on to this new stage. I've been changing diapers for two kids for nearly a year now, so having only one kid to diaper will be a welcome change! She sure looks cute in her Little Mermaid panties! Sophie is asleep right now, so I have two hours to do whatever I want to celebrate turning 29! So what do I want to do? Blog, of course!
I am making good use of photoshop these days. I'm really enjoying it! We went to the beach with my Uncle Wayne and some of his family and my Aunt Gayle and her family while we in California for Labor Day. (We miss Matt, Chrissy, Jessica, and Michael! It's just not the same without you guys!) We've all been going to the beach together since my parents moved to California when I was three. The weather was great and we had a fabulous time. The two pictures in the top right of everyone in their beach chairs is so old school for us. We have the same pictures taken 20 years ago of all the adults in a line, only my Mom was in those pictures. (The bright white light in the middle of those photographs is just my sister Julia.) White lightning!
Birthday card Bobby left for me this morning. Isn't he cute. I love how he drew me bigger than him and with the Homer muumuu dress on.
