I am, by no means, a great gardener. I have what I like to call a 'dead thumb'. I wanted to put a flower pot on my front porch for awhile, so I decided to try my hand at it. We went to the local nursery and the girls helped me pick out some flowers. They both wanted to plant their OWN garden, so I let them pick out some flowers to plant. Quincey liked the IDEA of planting the flowers, but lost interest after awhile. Emma J, on the other hand LOVED IT!!! She was so patient and actually helpful!! She was so proud of her creation in a little corner in the back yard that I let them put their flowers. JJ reminds me every day that we need to water her flower garden!!!

That's right!.... Quincey received her first set of stitches on Thursday.
Thursday is usually a great day at our house. Quincey has dance class with her best friend, Savannah, and then afterwards Katie(Savannah's mom) and I take all 4 of our girls to McDonald's to play (and sometimes eat!!)
However this Thursday was not so great. During dance, Miss Michelle takes the girls down to get a drink in the middle of class. On the way back up to class, Quincey tripped on the stairs and 2 of her front teeth went all the way thru her bottom lip. I heard a scream and then saw Quincey coming through the door with blood dripping down her face. I took her in the bathroom to wipe it off and then Katie and I looked at her closer to discover that her teeth had gone through her lip. We gathered our stuff and went straight the the ER.
She only needed a couple of stitches to close her lip and so I decided to not have them sedate her and just block the nerves and stitch it fast. The blocking medication stings terribly!!
( I have heard grown men ball like a babies in the ER from it!!!) Quincey was a trooper!!! She hardly cried!! What a brave little girl.
After she was all stitched up, I took her to the dentist. Bad news. The force broke her teeth and she needs to have them pulled! Nice.... 2 of her 4 front teeth missing??!?!?!
Here are the pictures!!

Ed spoiled me this year big time!!! He bought me an iPod Touch that I absolutely L O V E!!! He took me the The Melting Pot in Salt Lake. I thought it was a fun restaurant.. probably will not go back.... We then went and saw a total chick- flick (Confessions of a Shopaholic) and I got a pedicure!!!! I love Ed to death... he really takes such great care of me and the girls!
I love a great pedicure!!!
Melting Pot desert- you dip off of this stuff in a chocolate fondue pot!!
Fondue Dinner!!! You actually pay a lot of money to cook your food yourself!!!

Today is Emma J's birthday!!! I wanted to post some pictures of the last 3 years with her!!!
She has been sooo much fun!! At first I thought she was going to be my quiet "good" girl!! NOPE! She is crazy and silly and we love her for it!!
My favorite things about her right now:
1) Emma loves to tell "jokes" her favorite are Knock- Knock jokes and she laughs hysterically at them!!
2) She has an amazing imagination. She currently has an imaginary friend named "Erica" The other day when she broke her favorite snow globe, she was sobbing and ran into her room yelling, "Erica did it!!!! Erica did it!!!"
3) Her name is JJ and she is turning 16(just like her mom) and that is that... you don't think so, just ask her!!!
JJ, Mommy loves you and I look forward for more birthdays to come!!!!
This was her party today!!! She is such a goof ball!!! She has been asking to go to Chuck E. Cheese forever (or so it seems!!)

So this morning while I was in my room, Quincey comes in and says:
"Hey Mom, remember the letter I sent you yesterday that said you were invited to my party tomorrow? Well, it is time for my part!!!" I walked out into the living room and this is what I found:
The girls had laid out this blanket and brought all sorts of "goodies" from the pantry, a game and we were watching Curious George! Mickey and Minnie were invited as well!!! How cute are they!!!
