The BIG 3-0!!

Last week I said my farewells to my 20's and somewhat reluctantly welcomed in my 30's.  My birthday was last Thursday and I had an awesome day.  It started out with some mall time in the morning followed by lunch with a good friend that I don't get to see very often.  Then while Livi was napping I actually layed around on the couch and watched a movie and then it was time to get ready for a GNO in my honor.  A few of my super-sweet friends took me out to eat a yummy dinner and treated me to some coffee-talk afterward.  I didn't make it home until 11pm (yes, that is WAY late for me) and I walked in to find that Koby and Livi had baked me some strawberry cupcakes with strawberries and creme frosting!  YUM.

Thanks girls!!

News Flash...News Flash...

Well, at least to us!

Both yesterday and today Olivia woke up from her nap and wore her "big girl panties" all evening until bath time...without any accidents! Yesterday we stayed home all evening but tonight we went to eat at the Cotton Patch and then made a quick trip to Walgreens. My plan is to slowly extend the amount of time she's in her panties...especially when we're at home. She gets so proud of herself when she goes in the potty that our praise seems to be doing the trick. We haven't had to deal with the dreaded #2 yet so I'm fully aware that we haven't conquered the hard part! :)

In addition to this I have to brag that she also ate quite a bit of broccoli at dinner tonight with very little encouragement!

This is a picture from the fair and livestock auction in Caldwell last Friday. Good times!
