The potty training....

Its been about 2 1/2 weeks since we started potty training. Tiffany is doing really well! We have only had a handful of accidents. She knows she has to only use the toilet if she wants to go to school next month. School starts on Aug 18th so we are doing pretty good. The goal by the time school starts is to only wear normal underwear and no pull-ups....we shall see!!!!!!!

Creeping towards 30!

I had such a good birthday today! Brandon took the day off and we had lunch with Dad, did some shopping, and then dinner with Mom, Brent, Scott and Eric. It was such a nice day!
Tiff was excited to blow out the candle
She even whispered happy birthday first
She enjoyed blowing out the candle so much we had to do it again!
Everyone at dinner
Then at home we had to blow out the candle on the cake that Tiffany made. She was super excited about that! The cake was actually good, we put chocolate chips in the batter and then I made chocolate pudding to put between the layers.
And of course a fam pic!

My little baker

So I am not a cake person at all. I really don't like cake very much, I am an ice cream kind of girl. But I thought it would be fun for Tiff to help make a cake for my birthday tomorrow. She has become very aware that her birthday is coming up and is very excited. She knows all the birthdays between now and hers and counts them down as they pass.
She was super excited to help "cook"
She was super careful as she poured in the oil
"I'm a good mixer mom!"
Tiffany doesn't eat cake or chocolate but she saw the cake mix powder on the counter and thought it was sugar so she wanted some of that! And surprise...she liked it!
Then she stuck her finger in the batter and....
actually tasted it!
I told her to lick the spoon...So she did! Not quite what I meant.
She couldn't wait for it to come out of the oven. I told her she had to wait for the beep beep of the oven. She was sooooo excited when it was done she wanted to finish "making" the cake.

Ready to go

This is currently my new favorite pic of Tiffany. We were headed out the door to go meet some friends and she got all dressed up for her little friends. Isn't she cute!!!

PoTTy TimE!!!!

The time has finally come for the diapers to disappear. Thats right, they are gone! We told Tiffany on Saturday that its time to be a big girl now and to use a potty and big girl undies! She has done soooo good! On Sat every time she needed to tinkle she used the potty and no accidents at all! Sun did both of her business on the potty and today so far has successfully used the potty! At night we are using a pull-up until we are feeling a little more confident. Oh yeah and every time she uses the potty she gets a prize...this won't last for long but its sure is helping! These pictures are from Sat and they are from when she got her 2nd potty prize.
Oh my goodness!!!
For me?
"I did it!"

4th of July!

Happy Fourth of July! We had such a fun day swimming and having a bbq with friends! Then we watched fireworks by Schnepf farms on the top of the car! Tiffany liked them this year but she was super tired (since she is still waking up at the crack of dawn) so we didn't stay long. But over all it was a great day!
And here is the Fam in our Red White and Blue! Yup I'm a nerd..sorry!
