I have been so blessed with the most amazing girlfriends in the world! Unfortunately as we get older everyone seems to go different directions. Thankfully not all have left CO. But a few have, and these past few weeks I was able to spend time with the majority because they (Monika Nordlander & Kim Foxen) were in town visiting which meant we ALL got together!! I even managed a night out with a couple of the girls and went dancing! I have such a different perspective now that I am a Mommy and a wife! Ami Crowe and I had a blast people watching and actually got out on the floor and danced a bit...just like riding a bicycle! One of my other Bestest friends is getting married September 19th... CONGRATS LEAH BUG! A lot has been going on these days, and I have loved every minute of it! Unfortunately I have taken very few pictures...I will post a few of the past few events though! Here Ami's son Julien & Easton are hanging out, they were being so silly! Little man FINALLY likes bubble baths! He used to be scared of bubble baths! LOL! Man I love this kid!

Monika and John left with baby Johnny back to China early this morning...I am SO SAD! I will miss you guys!!! While Monika was here, she passed on a book to me called THE SHACK...if you are looking for a new book to read, you gotta give this a chance. I pretty much read it in 3 days. It is so good! Thanks Roni!!

Easton has discovered play-doh, and he LOVES it! Ha! He woke up this morning and asked me "" Well, I said "sure, I am going to take a shower, but you can go play!" About 2 minutes later Tory comes in the bathroom and asked me if I told E it was okay to play with his play-doh...I said, "No...we have to leave" well, needless to say I made a mistake, apparently "play" means play-doh. OOPS! So, Easton was a bit bent out of shape for a few minutes, but eventually got over it! The communication gap can be frustrating at times, but for the most part we can figure out what he is saying, plus his vocabulary is growing a ton too! My newest favorite Eastonism is "BUTT BURPS". He coined that phrase all by himself! When I was growing up, the word fart was forbidden...we had to say beamer (I love you Mom, but what the crap is that?!?)...that traumatized me, but I feared my Mom & Dad so I stuck to the rules, now that I am a Mom, I make the rules! So, I decided over much deliberation that fart is not a bad word, and Easton was free to use it, but for some reason instead of saying he farted, he says..."Mommy, my butt burped" It cracks us up every time! I am sure once again, my Mom in Heaven had something to do with this! :)

A short fun video of Julien & Easton...try to ignore me in the background being a Mom!

Have a GREAT week!

Sorry I am all over the place in my post!

Okay, I have to say I just had a laughing fit for about 5 minutes... Fart was also forbidden in our house... Hmmm go figure. Mom still wants us to say it when we are there. The kids just look at her like she is speaking another language. :-)
Hugs and kisses
