Almost good enough to eat!

I'm sure most people who read blogs know about Etsy. It is a community of people who hand make all sorts of things to sell. I came across this YUMMY soap that looks good enough to eat!
She also makes bath salts, sugar scrubs and lip balms! Check her out here!

Yes, I'm blogging today.
I still have yet to post Veda's birthday blog. BAD mom. My friend Kathryn took photos of her birthday, it was so nice not to have to deal with that. ..but that is another post.

August now has 4 costumes to choose from for Halloween. Anytime of the day you can find him in one of them. He has Batman, Spiderman, Pirate, and a fire fighter. The pirate one also fits Veda, who is really in to wearing it as well. ( as you can see) Some costumes are new, others are pajamas that have new life..with his new love for all things superhero!
He asked me the other day if Superheros pee standing up or sitting. ha ha
Rosa has her new tooth coming in already. So much for my hope of a toothless smile!

Veda had her 5 year old checkup. 4 shots and a blood draw. She was NOT a happy camper. To make it worse I had to take August with us. He actually did fine until the blood draw since by then, Veda was crying pretty hard. He asked in the car.." why do they take your blood Deyga"(his version of Veda these days)
I told him they need to make sure she is healthy on the inside. Then he asked.. "Will they give it back?"

Hurray! At the ripe old of 7 years and 7 months, Rosa lost her first tooth! She is so excited. It has been loose for a LONG time too. Now of course she has about 3 more loose ones. Maybe she will loose them all soon. What a funny picture that could be!
Her tooth was so tiny when it came out. Reminded me that it was the same tooth that came in when she was 5 months old..back them it looked huge!
She woke the next day at 6 am to see what the Tooth Fairy left her..$5 Way more than the $0.50 I would get. I guess it HAS been 26 years since I lost my first tooth, so maybe the price has gone up a bit.

Another year..

Opening gifts at my family birthday party last weekend

On the eve of my 32 birthday I will look back and think how lucky I am. I have great friends, a wonderful family and so far so good on the health front too!
I also decided that I'm going to stop freaking out about being in my 30's. Turning 30 itself was not hard. It felt monumental. Like a right of passage... But then 31 was when it hit me that I was not just 30, but IN my 30's. Now another year later, I'm just happy.
I feel pretty good about myself and where I am right now. I am also excited about learning and exploring new things to come. I feel like I am still young and have so much more life! Cause I do.
Watching my kids growing and seeing their personalities emerge is really wonderful. All the while our relationships change a bit with each year.
I'm lucky to have a car obsessed, basketball junkie of a husband..oh wait... He is also kind, generous, caring, and loves me to pieces. Also a shout out to my momma. I know 32 years ago a crazy silly baby came in to her life, and she always let me be me.

August and worms

I was outside gardening today and I had a little pal with me, August.
He found the worms in the garden amazing. Watching them wriggle in his hands and try to get away. He was very gentle with them.

After he was done with that he went on a skateboarding adventure ( in our driveway). He told me he needed a ramp to do all the good tricks. SO cute. Maybe me and Sebastian will build him one next summer?
