New York adventure

and the birthday continued........This year it seemed like G's birthday celebration was a bit long-winded. There was the "birthday week", then the birthday party with school friends, the family birthday party and then the birthday trip to NYC for two non-stop days of American Girl Place.

I've now been home longer than I was in NY, but for some reason I am still exhausted! It was a great trip! We went with our best friends and created memories that will last a lifetime---I'm sure the girls will one day be sitting around saying, "Remember that time my mom chased that taxi down in NYC and then the time my mom cut-the-line at Penn Station when the train was sold out so that we could all sit together." Good times for all!

There were so many good pics that I loaded a small portion of them to a slideshow. Enjoy!

Some of you may have noticed the absence of K in that slideshow. She had her own little mini-vacation with Grammy and D-daddy while G and I were in NY. Mini-vacation for K.....exhaustion for Grammy and D-daddy. Here's a pic of a "first" for K.

First ponytails! They didn't last very long, but they were sooooo cute!

Happy Birthday G!

Hard to believe but I am now the parent of a seven-year-old---how the @#*& did that happen? It seems like yesterday we were on a plane on our way to China to bring our beautiful girl home and now here she is just about grown-up. (I know there's still a lot of growing to do but sometimes she is most definitely, seven going on thirty!)

We had a fabulous pool party (if I say so myself). Her very best friends and some of her school acquaintances were there.

The Three Amigos

We had a beautiful pull-apart cupcake "cake" from Super Target. They did a fabulous job using a copy of the party invitation.

She had a great time opening gifts, which continued into the weekend with a family party at Grammy's house.

And we will finish up this year's birthday with a trip to New York next week to spent the day at the American Girl store. I've already told R, "be afraid, be very afraid" :-)

Hello again.....

Feeling very guilty for not posting in so long, especially since I do this to assuage my guilt over all the unused scrapbooking supplies in the basement, but I'm already out of time this morning.

These pics will to be it for now, but will get back to this later today, if I'm lucky:-)

New socks

"I'm ready to go!"
