Macee and her cute teacher! (sorry it's crooked)
I signed Macee up for a 2 year old dance class and she loves it! I tell her the night before that she has dance tomorrow and that's all she talks about the whole night and the morning before is dance, dance, dance! Her teachers are so cute and they are so good with the kids! They have done finger paints and other fun activities along with learning different ballet forms with nursery rhymes and french. Her teacher told me that when they do front rolls that Macee runs up to the front and gives her a hug and then goes back and does her front roll! So funny, don't ask me why but I guess she feels inclined! They give them a fun little paper to take home after class with a picture on it of what they learned that day so they can practice and Macee carries it around for a good 2-3 days afterward showing us what she did! She loves the little half hour once a week just to get away from mom and I do too!

Ok so for those of you that don't know I got a job at the Credit Union here in Ephraim just working a couple days a week when Roger is home from work. I just needed something very part-time to get me out of the house so I don't go crazy and of course the extra cash is GREAT... it will be my spending money!!! (Roger thinks otherwise but oh well!) Anyway... yesterday was my first day and I pretty much just shadowed another teller trying to learn their system. The company had their summer party last night and they invited us to go so we did. They had super yummy food and it was up in the mountains at a fun cabin. After we all ate they said we have a few prizes but not enough for everyone so we put everyones name in a hat and we will choose winners. I thought to myself that would be cool if I won on my first day working there... So they told us that they had bought 3 pigs at the fair and were having them slaughtered and packaged and that 6 of us would get a half a pig! So I'm thinking sweet, that's awesome we could really use the meat, and next thing I know they draw my name 4th!!! So anyway to make a short story long, now we have to buy a freezer to put the meat in and we are super excited!
And we named the pig "Dinner" by the way!! ***WINK WINK*** (for you mom)

We have had a super busy week this week. It started with Macee's early birthday party on Saturday and she had so much fun! (see post) On Monday we headed to St George for a little vacation and to take Macee for her Dr. appointment with our favorite doctor! We got together with our good friends the Kellys when we got there on Mon. and we went out to dinner to Chilis. It was so much fun to get together with them and see how big Calen has gotten in just a couple months! It was just like old times being back together with them and I sure do miss that! We wish a lot that we could live in that neighborhood again, we had so many good times there and there are so many kids that Macee played with! We saw a lot of our old neighbors and it was good to talk to all of you! Some of them were out of town and hopefully we will get to see them next time we go!
On Tuesday (Happy Birthday Macee) we got together with Teresa my old neighbor and she was so nice to take Macee's pictures for us. (see post) They turned out SUPER CUTE and I am so excited to get a bunch of them blown up and hang them up. Thanks again Teresa! I hope you get feeling better! We couldn't go to St George without going shopping at all of my favorite stores that I miss so much and I got a couple of killer deals on some clothes for Macee. Since it was her birthday that day we took her and let her pick out some fun toys and a tutu of course since she is in dance now! We got together with Joey and Kayden for dinner and it was good to see them and to let the kids play. They are going to get married someday! We went to the Kellys again and Katie had made cupcakes for Macee's birthday! It was so nice of her and they were yummy! Maddix picked out a cute little bath dolly for Macee and she loves it! Thanks again for everything, Chris, Katie, Maddix, Drake, & Calen, we miss you guys!
On Wed. we had Macee's doctor appointment and it went good except for the fact that she pooped right before the doctor came in and she wouldn't let me change her and boy did it stink in there! Good thing Dr. Marsden loves her and didn't mind! He said her ears still look good and that she is perfect in every way! (we already think so!) She is 35 inches tall and weighs 27 pounds. She is in the 99th percentile overall and he said that she couldn't be better! It's always so nice to hear that she is healthy and happy and doing so well! She didn't like him too much this time but hopefully when we go back in a year she will have a change of heart. We couldn't have a better doctor and it is definitely worth the drive!
We got home Wed. and on Thurs. morning after dance we headed up to Lehi for a wedding, farewell, a baby shower for Mollie and "Cokie" who will be here any time now, and just to have fun! Macee got to go with grandpa and see him catch some fish. She wasn't so sure about it at first but she finally touched one and thought it was pretty cool! She also got to see a couple snakes that grandpa caught out in the yard and thought that was pretty fun. She went around hissing and sticking out her tongue at everyone. She always has fun in Lehi!
Oh and this is my weird brother being weird! What a nerd!
