(this was our FHE treat one night)
My sisters were so sweet and threw me a shower on August 2nd. Since we've had kids before this was mainly because I was having a boy and have no boy stuff. We had it at Grandma Broderick's house. It was a wonderful turn out. Teresa planned and carried out most of it. Ironic, I planned her baby shower for her first boy while I was pregnant with Rue. It was car themed and we had so many wonderful friends come and support us. We are going to have the cutest dressed boy in all the world. My family was all there and Melissa, Christie and Aunt Stephanie came from Christian side. Thanks family and friends for such love and support.
Keith had his birthday and it was pretty low key. All he wanted was his favorite doughnuts from Krispy Kream. He is a wonderful man and father to my kids. I'm so grateful he is alive and mine.
The Phoenix temple was all finished and the plans were being made for the dedication and cultural celebration. Aunt Diane and Uncle John were put in charge of props for the celebration. They called and asked if Keith would be willing to be on their team. I was so excited for him, and jealous at the same time. I can't be in on basically anything. I did get to go one day for prop making and helped make the "rain makers" for the celebration. I also got to make two "bakers" shirts for our ward. That is the end of my contribution to the temple open house and celebration.
Ada had her first dentist appointment. We had tried to go at the beginning of the year and Ada had a melt down. So we waited a bit till she was a a little older. She was VERY nervous, but hang in there. I stayed right by her except when they took x-rays. They were very impressed with her for doing them. They said usually they can't get kids her age to hold still to do the x-rays. She did so well and obeyed what they asked her to do. I was NOT impressed with her hygienist. If you are working with kids maybe you should be a happy upbeat person. Ada's was solemn and not friendly. The dentist luckily was a very friendly lady. She told us Ada's teeth were good. Because of her gap in the front teeth we needed to make sure and floss and brush the back teeth that are crammed together. I was SO relieved no cavities. I don't even know how we would survive that.
Almost done...I'm SO uncomfortable and huge. Getting close. Teresa was due with her third (also a boy) on the 27th, but at the end of August still had not delivered. She has gone early with her other two. I've never been early so I've just been planning to go all the way to the end. September 15th...HURRY UP!!!
