Happenings

Here are some recent happenings in our hood....

1. Ryann is in the middle of Potty Training. She goes about 3 times a day on the potty (me telling her it is time to go and sitting her on it, not her asking to go). She is not consistent, but we are getting there. She will hate these pictures some day!!




2. We celebrated our 6 Wedding Anniversary on Sept.20. We had such a great time...Mark bought me a dozen white roses (my favorite flower),ate a great dinner at Enos, ate dessert at Pokey-Os, Mark took me shopping and bought me an outfit, and ended the night by watching 17again. Great great date...love this guy!




3. Tina, my hairdresser since I was 4, cut Ryann's hair for free at my hair appt. a couple of weeks ago. Ryann just got a little trim, but you could tell she felt like such a big girl sitting in the chair.



4. In late August, my dear friend Annie Hunt had a beautiful baby girl named Hattie. Heather and I had so much fun taking Ryann up to see the new Hunt family. Congratulations Hunt family!! Hattie is an absolute doll.






5. This actually happened this summer, but found these pics on my camera and thought it was too funny not too post. I was in charge of ordering bandanas for the teenagers for our Guatemala Mission trip. Every teen is on a team and they identify what team they are on by wearing a specific bandana. All the colors were taken by the little kids so I had to resort to patterned bandanas. I was having a hard time coming up with 6 types of patterned bandanas, until I ran across a bandana website.oh, happy day, they had tons of patterned bandanas. They listed a "leaf" pattern. I thought that would be great for a team being that we are in Guatemala, lots of jungle leaves, etc. I bought 2 dozen of them. When they arrived , they had the word "cannabis" on the outside of the pack. Being my naive self, I googled "cannabis" and lo and behold....the cannabis leaf is the marijuana leaf. So I now had 24 weed bandanas. Needless to say, I did not take them to Guatemala. I threw them away, but not without a photo. Meanwhile Mark was in Guatemala during this time. I told him about the bandanas and he told Julio (the missionary they were staying with). Something got lost in translation and Julio thought I had accidently bought actual weed (Mark promptly corrected him)....would've have been a lot worse than bandanas.
