Some highlights from Maggie’s 5th birthday:
Playing at Saturday Live with Caleb & Olivia:
I took Maggie to the dentist on Thursday. I thought it would be nice for her to talk about it in her own words:
“I was very brave. And I wasn’t scared. I just stayed still when I take my x-ray. The dentist gave me a new toothbrush. I just get a Princess toothbrush. And I just also get dental floss. It was very ticklish. And I wasn’t wobbly. And my mom just read a book to me. And I played with a toy truck. I just wear my jelly shoes there. The dentist just called my name. I have 10 teeth on top and 10 on the bottom. I was tell when it’s Mom’s turn. I was ready for my turn. That’s it.”

Jessie has a chat with her new dolly. She has been desperately trying to roll over. I helped her once this afternoon and she was pleased to see how it is done.
Edited on Monday 9/20: Jessie finally rolled over at daycare this morning. Tiffany said she did it 3 times. I think we are in trouble.
Jessie & I take a little nap.
Loving the Boppy pillow!
Albert is a bear that resides in Maggie’s Pre-K class and gets to go home with a student for a week. Albert came to our house last week. Maggie enjoyed having Albert hang out with us, even though he did have to guard the car a couple of times because Maggie wasn’t sure she wanted to share him with the other kids.
The past 2 Saturday mornings, we’ve hit the local Farmer’s Market. Last weekend, we picked up 2 Hutterite chickens. I’m hoping to roast one and turn the other into chicken soup as it is getting to be that time of year.
Yesterday, we found a few more deals: Hutterite dill pickles & cantaloupe, sweet corn and some really awesome berries: strawberries, blackberries & white raspberries. The berries were juicy, plump and sweet. I put a few on some ice cream (with some chocolate syrup), but the rest we all just ate. I am really looking forward to picking up some more next week!Grandpa Mike got cookies & fudge, Grandma Bonnie got a caramel apple and Maggie got a balloon deer which she named “Smelliot.”
