This, my friends, is what I like to call Our First House.

Luke, I am so glad you asked me to marry you 6 years ago. I pray God blesses us with many, many more years together so that someday we can celebrate 50 years too! I love you with all of my heart for the rest of my life!

- My son has covered his face in "banana smashings." All I have to say about that right now is no one sent me the memo that this is the new face mask. And AS IF his skin could get any softer. He doesn't even suffer from poorly timed breakouts, which is more than I can say for myself right now. Cystic Adult Acne, it exists and it's taken up residence on my forehead.
- Claire burned me a copy of Sara Bareilles' CD "Little Voice." I LOVE IT!! So thank you, Claire, for the musical entertainment that has filled our house and car lately.
- Here are a couple of blogs that I've been stalking recently. They have some great ideas for thrifty decorating and sewing, which I would like to learn to do in the near future. And yes, I'm talking about both. You know, in my spare time when I'm not wiping banana masks off of my son's face. But I was talking about blogs... http://lindseycheney.blogspot.com/ & http://raechelmyers.blogspot.com/
- I woke up at 5:00 this morning. Remember when I said that no one should know that hour exists? Well, apparently God wanted to remind me that He DID, in fact, create that hour. Message received.
- I've really been into watermelon lately. For a long time I only liked the smell of it since it reminded me of summer. Turns out the taste is pretty good too. I would encourage you to partake in this delicious melon. You won't be sorry. But be sure to get the seedless kind because nothing kills a romantic mood with your husband like a few seeds stuck in your teeth. I wouldn't know of course because I practice what I preach. :)
- Speaking of watermelon, I desperately need to go to the grocery store today. I'm not really looking forward to it but sometimes we have to do things we don't want to do. I would also put cleaning bathrooms in this category.
- My new camera shipped yesterday!! I sure hope it gets here before our Tulsa trip.
Well, friends, Austin's getting cranky. Guess it's his way of telling me time's up on the face mask. Joy.

Sooo, I've been slacking in the blog department. What can I say? Summer is in full swing which means we've got swimming and movie watching to do. And oh yeah, a little cleaning and such. Since I haven't written in a week, this post is gonna be a random collection of news and thoughts. Please try to contain your excitement.
First of all, I just need to say that the Twilight series has RUINED my taste in books for life! No other books seem to compare and hold my attention anymore. I think I hear Luke breathing a sigh of relief right about now seeing as how this means I'll be spending less time reading and more time housemaking...since that's what I am these days. A homemaker. It's a big job but one of us has to do it.
In fact, I feel like this series was so good and well written that I need to put them on display somewhere. Sad, I know. And pathetic too come to think of it. Don't worry, though, I am refraining from using them as decorations in our house. Feel free to breathe a sigh of relief too.
Moving on. Last Saturday night we enjoyed a D-E-licious dinner with my family. We saw some old friends and familiar faces. Do you know what I love about living in San Antonio? This is where my roots are and every once in a while, I run into someone that has been a part of my life in some way. Thus, allowing me to take a walk down memory lane. Always a joy, except for when it's not. Luckily, I haven't had too many of the not so fun experiences which is why I still enjoy living where I was raised. Claire and I took a couple of pictures to document the quality family time and fun had by all...
In the words of Fergie..."G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S" :)
Remember how Luke had trade days last week? Well. Lucky for him, he had some landscaping stuff to take care of and guess who his partner in crime was? Yep. Little A. It was so sweet to watch the Father/Son bonding going on in the backyard. I thought maybe you would enjoy it too so here you go.
You can thank me later. :)
We also bought Austin a little pool and he wore. himself. out. He was too cute to watch and it turned out to be a family affair, Savannah included. Oh, you'd like to see some pictures? Well, ok. Twist my arm...
So there you have it. That's what we've been up to these days. Nothing super exciting but memory making nonetheless.
I'm sure more of that will be going on this month since we're pretty busy. For example, one of our good, good friends is getting married in Tulsa on my birthday. I cannot WAIT to get up there and see all of our forever friends! Plus, Luke and I will get to go sans Austin so we can "party like it's 1995" as my mom would say, which includes staying out past 6:30 and dressing up. I've been a little homesick for Tulsa lately so this trip couldn't come at a better time.
Alrightey. I think I better do a quick "bumble bee" clean before Luke gets home and I head to Bible study. I sure hope the girls remember who I am since I haven't been in a few weeks. If not, I'll just remind them of the stellar snack I brought once upon a time. Who could forget goldfish and cupcakes. Talk about a walk down preschool lane.

Do you wanna know how summer officially arrives at the Keiffer house?
I'd be happy to tell ya.
The shows are over and Luke and I proceed to rent every movie we did not get to see at the movie theater. Oh, wait. We never go to movies anymore. First of all, it is ridiculously expensive and I prefer to save that money for important things like supporting my magazine buying habit. Or my obsession for Old Navy deals. But we do occasionally make it to a movie or two. For example, I fully intend on going to see The Proposal with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Betty White is in it too, and she was Hi-larious on her Entertainment Tonight interview.
But do all you parents out there remember back in the dating days when going to movies was a regular event? Me too. And. Do you remember when you could whip out your school ID and get a discount? I milked that thing for all it was worth. After all, my parents paid good money for my education and it's only right that I get the most of what they paid for my ID. By the by, thank you, Pete and Rhonda, for the generosity that you bestowed on me by paying for my schooling. Those were some good days. I sure do miss being supported by the Finance Department that was my parents. Now I am one of the members of Austin's Finance Department. Sometimes you never know what you have 'til it's gone.
But life is good and on that note I'm going to wrap this up. I'm off to enjoy some more quality time with my little family.
Now do have a lovely evening.
