Potty time...

I am a very proud mother today! Gavs went potty THREE times today on the big boy potty! Or big girl potty according to Makenna. Whichever way you look at it, he went on the potty... on the floor... in his highchair.... and he also pooped once in his "diegos" as he calls them. So go Gavin! Here are to many more wet (hopefully just wet) "diegos" and shots in the toilet!!!

A kids dream...


Welcome back Whitney!

The first Whitney Houston song I ever heard was "I Will Always Love You" when I was dancing my first slow dance in the 5th grade at Brock Spilsbury's birthday party. I sang it for WEEKS after that! I love her. Glad she is back on top! Welcome back girl! (I know that sounded totally black)... or too white...

Makenna has been waiting to play soccer for a year and a half now (seriously, that is without me pushing it). Anyway, the day finally arrived yesterday at 11:30 AM. She wore her uniform as soon as she was done eating breakfast until after the game! It was about four sizes too big (as it was for all of the other girls) but she had a blast. None of the girls knew what they were doing except how to kick the ball. So the assistant coach (my dad) TRIED to show them what to do. It was HILARIOUS! Finally another mom and I stood behind the miniture net and yelled at the girls to say this is where the ball is supposed to go. Makenna scored the only goal on her team with about 1 minute remaining! I was so excited for her. Unfortunately, the Red Ladybugs scored three goals, but it was still fun. It was BLOODY hot so hopefully next week will be cooler. GO GREEN DRAGONS (and number SIX!)

Still practicing

Gearing up for the big game!

Zach (her cousin) and her during half time. Look how red their faces are! Pretty dang hot!

2nd Day of Preschool

Obviously not as exciting.

First day of PRESCHOOL!

Tuesday has finally arrived! Thank freaking goodness! Ever since Kenna's preschool open house last week she could hardly wait until this Tueday! She was counting down the days and it FINALLY arrived! She woke up early (7:15) and wanted to get dressed right away so she could wear her new SLIVER shoes (silver). We had a little princess breakfast for her and it made it all the better for her! She told me that we had to have her hair done by 9:00 so she wouldn't be late... luckily we made it right on time! :) She got her new Tinkerbell backpack that she was SO excited about and her big girl booster seat!

When we got to the preschool, she let me take two pictures of her. One at the gate, and then she ran in, gave her teacher a hug and ran off! That was about it! So much for her caring about the mother that has raised her for the past 3 1/2 years!!! Brent was a little more emotional about it than me, but we both survived. Now Gavin and I need to figure out what we are going to do by ourselves for two days a week for 2 hours and 15 minutes!!! I'm sure we will! Have fun Kenna!!!

That is what I am. Undecided. I know that I have wasted peoples precious eye sight in reading my woes about quitting Diet Pepsi, but it has been a big deal for me! Anyway, now I am three weeks down and it hasn't been TOO bad, except for the fact that I have gained SIX pounds. That's right. Six. S. I. X. Six freaking pounds! I know why. It's because I eat sugary crap like cookies and ice cream and cookies, because I don't have the DP to curb my sweet tooth. So now... do I go back so I don't gain any more weight or keep off it and just eat my way to heaven.
