August was a great mix of catching up after being away
and relaxing before Russell's busy season started.
Here are a few highlights from our month!
Caitlyn's 1st birthday;
the big one-year-old front-facing in her car seat for the first time!
She thought it was pretty neat!
First ice cream cone (with frozen yogurt)!
Time to open gifts!
Her expression when she pulled off the blanket and saw
the doll underneath was priceless!
Thrilled with her baby and cradle!
We laughed at how she constantly held her
arm up to keep her new purse from dragging!
This summer Becky, Lydia, Anna and I decided to go in
together to do some Operation Christmas Child boxes.
I got some cute skirts and other items for less than $1/each,
and the girls made some cute crocheted animals.
We had a blast shopping the back-to-school sales
and ended up getting everything else we needed!
The girls did a great job packing a LOT of stuff into each box!
Our boxes, all finished!
At the end of August we went up to help with a
multi-family yard sale at Deborah and Daniel's.
The cutest little helper ever!
We love you, Caitlyn!
Mama came down for the sale, and spent a day
with Russell and me afterward, which was so fun!
We also had dinner with a dear friend in Dallas one day,
but we were having so much fun that I forgot to snap a picture!
Until next month!! :)
