the dentist and ella

so, today was ella's first dentist appointment. ( i know, she should have already gone... but i let my fears of the dentist overwhelm my parental duties) i have been talking about the dentist FOREVER with her in hopes to keep the fears at bay. well, today was the day! i was really considering not taking her this morning... but, i was responsible, mature, and did the right thing... we went. we went, got lost, were 45 minutes late, i have angry tears and everything! I WAS THAT MOM! i called and called and called the office but the phone was busy... the ordeal that it became was very unpleasant!

but, we made it FINALLY! in the waiting room she looked at me with the quiver lip and said i don't want to go back there...

i know that it is better in these situations to not baby her and push her on to do the "mature, big girl" thing, and that is just what i did. and she went back when they called her name, came out in 15 minutes or less.... grinning ear to ear with her "new teeth" and jumping saying "NO CAVITIES, NO CAVITIES!"

sidenote, i thought for sure that she would have 30! but, none! i couldn't be prouder, more excited, or blessed that this child has nothing but great teeth!

and to my lacey... i have even been flossing those chompers (on them both)

** when fisher goes... they will have to use restraints! we have to headlock that boy to get his teeth brushed every night and morning! **

all for now! have a great afternoon!

we're getting close!

on august 10 chris and i will celebrate our 7th anniversary! i am really excited, moreso because on august 29 we will be celebrating 10 years of knowing, dating, engaging, married life!

i think back on when i met him (i was all of 18) and how much we have grown, changed, stayed the same, moved, grooved, shaked, ate, drank, babied, and lived... i never thought that this is what my life would be like and i couldn't imagine my life any other way. chris and i have learned so much about life (and still so much to learn) but i couldn't be happier or more blessed in life that to be living life with him.

have a great wednesday and thanks for coming back to my posts!

long time gone...

we have been so busy and my computer has been acting up so much, that blogging has become a thing of the past. we have gone back to cable internet this week, and things seem to be moving faster than before... time will tell :)

so, june flew by! we went to the beach with my parents, jarron, and kelsey and jopo for the weekend-- i turned 28, fished like crazy, swam and played so much that we cannot wait to go again!

july was quick too... really too quick. 4th of july, fisher's birthday, visitors, and a quick trip from jarron and joey-- seriously we are spinning!

now, it's august! really august! i cannot believe that we are more than half way through this year! it was last year that i started this blog, jarron went to california for school, kelsey got married-- and now-- well i gues there is a phrase that sums it up! oh the places we will go!

we are lovin the cooler summer and have really stayed busy just within our little neighborhood-- we never have a "quiet night" which is something that we LOVE!

we are approaching the "preschool years" and ella is going to start soccer this fall... we cannot wait for that to happen!

here is a picture tour of the last month and some from the beach trip! thanks to all who keep up with my page... i swear i will do better! hoping that my computer doesn't die!
