Payton was invited to, you guessed it, another Birthday party! It was at Children's Fairyland in Oakland. It is such a neat place, I remember going as a child!
The Good Witch ;)

The Birthday Girl, Lea
Checking out a Puppet show
I decided to save some money and give something a little more meaningful than just another toy so I made Lea's gift. Plus Payton loved "helping" make some choices regarding fabric and colors. I had it all on hand even the T so it cost me nothing extra! (all of my over buying is paying off, always have something on hand ;) Only problem I encountered was, my procrastination got the best of me again, so Saturday night was when I planned to make everything, the power was out for almost 5 hours that evening/night, which meant no sewing machine or hot glue gun, yikes! Luckily the power was back on by 9 so I wasnt up too late ;-)

I tried my hand at a Rosette clip, it was actually pretty easy!
**On a side note: Did you know they make battery powered Glue Guns? I didn't, until now! I know what I will be asking for this Christmas!***

A crooked man lived in a Crooked House...
Ahoy Matey!



There was an old lady who lived in a shoe....

The weather was perfect, and a good time was had by all!

Pearly Whites!

Payton had her first "real" visit to the dentist! She had been before to be introduced to the tools etc, but this visit was complete with x-rays and cleaning! She got her picture taken when we first arrived! The office is so cute, like a beach/shipwreck theme.

X-rays went great! Took a bit to get used to biting on the film but she did it!

I was so proud of her! I could tell she was nervous and started asking if it would hurt. The hygienist was so great and showed her what every tool would feel like on her hand before she used it in her mouth!

Paige was very interested in what they were doing to her sister!

Payton wore glasses while they cleaned, Paige wanted to wear some too!

All done! No cavities! YAY!!! Let's hope she has her Daddy's teeth, at 31 he has yet to have a cavity!

She got to pick a few prizes and came home with a backpack full of goodies, both of our favorite being the timer to brush with! She is loving it and willingly brushes for a good amount of time now!

Busy Weekend

This weekend was a busy one! We went from one thing to the next!! Payton had her second soccer game on Saturday, and it was HOT! We think she is having fun but as is directly quoted from her coach "she doesn't have a mean bone in her body, she will definitely be an offensive player!" In other words, she wont steal the ball or even block an opposing player who does ;) But as long as she is having fun, that's all that matters!!

We stopped home for a quick wardrobe change and then headed to a Birthday party for my friends daughters.

After the party we headed home to wait for Grandma and Grandpa P. They took the girls to McDonald's for a few hours while Karl and I had the pleasure of hosting a dinner party with The Cort's and Elder's.

Sarah couldn't wait to pop open the Vino!

At the Relay for Life walk Amie bid on and won a dinner which included a Personal Chef to come and prepare a meal for us! Thanks for sharing Amie!! It was amazing! My kind of dinner party!! The chef and her two assistants prepared a delicious menu for us and even did most of the dishes!

Roxy couldn't keep her nose out of the kitchen, luckily the chefs didn't mind ;)

Can you say Yummy!!

The girls came home during desert which was fun, the enjoyed playing with the guests!

Yes, even the boys helped with the dishes!! We are lucky ladies!

Polished off a few bottles, and still had a few left over ;)

The girls had so much fun tormenting, I mean playing with Eric, and playing hide and seek with Amie and Sarah!

Sunday afternoon Payton had soccer pictures. It was so cute! My little peanut was of course the shortest so she was first in line!

After pictures we went to the Fall Festival here in town. Karl worked at the CV Sports Foundation booth for a few hours so we walked around, listened to some music,jumped and got ice cream!

I think next weekend will be much more relaxing!
