Extreme Make Over: Home Edition

Extreme Make Over came to Daybreak. To be honest I wasn't too excited about it, selfishly...which is terrible. But I just thought it would be crazy, trafficy, people EVERYWHERE. But I got over myself, cause it obviously is for a good cause, and then I didn't even realize they had started until 2 days into it. It was crazy in the surrounding streets, but since we are about 10 blocks away, we were safe. I wanted to volunteer, but time always has a way of sneaking up on me. So I didn't. We went on a walk up there and this was day 4! Can you believe it!
There were tents set up everywhere, for first aid, volunteers, supplies, etc...
signs to direct and instruct you :)
in the few block surrounding, the roads were closed, even to pedestrians.
More tents...

Cop cars, and moving trucks were everywhere too...

I wish I could have been more involved. My friend, Laci volunteered and was there all day, and through the reveal.. She said it was amazing..but it was still fun to see it happening.

While the Boy's away...

So Dave went on his golf trip to St. George this weekend. I knew I would go crazy with out him, if we didn't keep we did! :)

At jamba juice

A new park down the street from us.

Splash pool of course...a few times.

More new parks,

And dress up...we survived and actually had a really fun time doing it!
The cutest point of our adventure happened at night. I HATE sleeping with out Dave here. In fact, I can't, not really. I got terrible sleep. One night I left the lights on and fell asleep reading a book. I woke up a few hours later to find Aubree laying next to me, fast asleep. The lights turned off, my book neatly placed on the night stand, and the bathroom light on with the door 3/4 closed. She took care of me :)

Costco and patriotic party

We went on a big Costco run today, we literally had no food. After we unloaded the car, Sophie was in heaven. So was excited at the prospect of food, how sad is that :( but she crawled up on the counter and sat right smack in the food. Funny girl.

Tonight I hosted a craft night. The project, patriotic banners. So I wanted to do something cute for refreshments. This is what I came up with.....
I printed off these circles, added ribbon, and spruced up the water bottles...
Delicious red and white salsa...
....with blue chips. I even made sure I only used red, white and blue serving bowls too. I'm kind of a nerd that way.
yummy fruit...
Jello is a must for me, and I know that my friend Karen loves it too...patriotic of course!
And some cute favors. Covered matchstick boxes, there weren't any fireworks out this had to do...
I always forget to take pictures once the night has actually started, I get too involved at having fun. And it was, a really fun night!

The Dentist

Sophie had her first dentist appointment today. She was amazing....did better than Aubree who has been a few times and KNOWS it doesn't hurt....

She laid half in my lap, half in the dentist's. He is an awesome dentist. I am so happy we found him out here. The girls just love him, and he definitely has a special patience and love of children.
Sophie was a little curious at what was going on, but she didn't resist.

In fact she had fun!
She liked the feel of his gloves,
And did awesome the whole time. I was so happy that is wasn't traumatic.
