Happy Birthday Keenan!

Keenan is 17 today!

If anyone is doing the math - yes, Keenan and Kyle are 366 days apart.

We've been enjoying some awesome weather lately! It's been really comfortable for August - 80s during the day and 50-60s at night. Keenan has had band camp this week and Brandee and Kyle are playing the 'it's so not fair' game that Keenan isn't sweltering like they always did. Band camp is from 8 AM to 8 PM, so I am very grateful that the weather has been good (so is Keenan!).
The little girls were blowing bubbles outside the other night and I took a picture of each of them - WOW - what blue eyes they have!! That would be the Dutch ancestry showing through.
We are working like crazy to get things ready for our trip out to Utah and for the reception here. Brandee, Ethan and I went to some stores in Charlotte today and found some big bowls and floating candles to use as table decorations. I also found a black bench for our entry way downstairs and some new throw rugs for in front of the new bathtub and the sink in the kitchen. I also bought.... (guess I better stop now before I give myself a panic attack).

20 years??!!

From this: (August 1988)

Sweet little baby without a care in the world (other than wondering if her very young and inexperienced parents should be trusted with her life!)

To this: (July 2008)

The invitations are done and mailed. The list of food, music and decorations are being written. Now we get to shop!! Brandee is counting down the days.............

Sometimes you have to treat yourself

I went to the Farmer's Market in town the other day. The peaches this year are AWESOME!!! I got some zuchinni to make my relish and a big bag of peaches. On the way to the car to go home, I saw a guy putting flower bouquets together and I just had to get some. Flowers can make even the messiest kitchen look nice!

Brandee is home now for a couple of weeks and we are busy planning her reception and getting the invitations out. (all 300 of them!!)
