Budding Baker

What little kid 3 years of age does not like to play with some form on Play -Doh. Well mine just absolutely LOVES to make cookies out of her squishy as she calls it. Today we "baked" cookies and served them to daddy.

Ultimate Approval

Over the weekend we where very fortunate to get to see Grandma & Grandpa Brady. Since Ike decided to pick on Texas and not some other state(s) they choose to take I 20 across to avoid Ike. and got to Abilene on Saturday afternoon. We went out for dinner at Cracker Barrel.

Sunday Brian and Grandpa ran to Lowe's so Brian could fix the sprinkler head the lawn mower attacked. I cooked dinner for grandma & grandpa. We had bbq beef, corn on the cob and mac & cheese. Grandma & grandpa really liked dinner ad my mac & cheese even got grandma's seal of approval. I think I pretty darn good them :)

Nothing much

Nothing has really been going on around here worth while.

Michelle had her 3 yr check up yesterday. She is 30.6 lbs and 38 inches tall. The doctor said she is in the 75% for height and 50% for weight. Mom had mentioned that the next time we make it to Florida for a visit Michelle will probably be able to ride more of the rides at Disney. I wouldn't be surprised if this was true.

Not much else has been going on. Brian spent last week at A&M for fire fighter training and last weekend we worked on getting our sprinklers fixed that needed some attention.

We made it safe and sound to Florida. With 2 days left until the BIG DAY, the rest of the family has started to arrive. If I remember right they should all be here today. One of Anne's friends is flying in tomorrow evening.

Michelle has been VERY busy checking out Gwama and Pa Pa's house. She has been "playing" with the kitties and "helping" gwama do things.

The weather has be kinda cruddy with rain the last 2 says but I think its gone for a while so we might get to see some sun shine.

Michelle is all ready to see Grandma and Pa Pa in Floorda. Yes she can say Florida. I've got most every thing taken care of so we can leave on Sunday afternoon to head for Lufkin.

Things are moving along nicely with Speech Therapy. As of Thursday Michelle will be seeing Carol from now on. Carol is Linsdey's repalcement. we have been seeing Kirsten. On top of playing musical therapist, the place we go to has been remodeling the speech department. Since Speech and PT are located next to each other they have had to share what little seating there is. This can get really fun on a busy day.

I normally don't have to sit near anyone and can knit in peace. Last week I got the pleasure of sitting next to the people who had colds and upper respiratory infections. I am now hoping my icky feeling that I have had since yesterday is just due to the weather and not from people who have the ickies. If I'm not feeling better come Wednesday I'm calling the Doctor to see if I can get in before we leave to make sure I don't have anything.

My knitting is coming along really well and I THINK I can get Michelle's sweater done before we leave.

Brian and Michelle got me the expansion pack for The Movies PC Game along with the Priam Guide. And yes the is a Cobalt Blue 5 Qt Artisan Kitchen Aid Mixer. amazon had it on sale for $199.99 and Kitchen Aid has a $30 mail in rebate. How could I not pass that deal up.
