If I Could Spend Time in a Bottle....

It's been ten years since we arrived in the Big Apple on the Fourth of July in 2001. In true kiwimommy fashion, I made this video to document the decade. Enjoy!

Happy Golden Birthday!

15 on the 15th!

He may have been the "Golden Boy" for this birthday, but exactly who blew out those birthday candles?? :-D

Kit was having his Golden Birthday this year. That means that he was turning the age of the date of his birthday: 15 on the 15th. {Did you get to celebrate your golden birthday? I did, only because I had an awesome hubby and was lucky enough to have a later-in-the-month birthday - the 27th}.

For his Golden Birthday, we decided to send him to the inaugural Jackson & Jimmer Basketball Camp in Utah. He had an exciting and event-filled weekend and Kit GOT JIMMERED!

Thank Heaven for Little Girls!

Today was our baby's 4th birthday!  Yesterday's party was cupcake-themed, and of course I went overboard with the sewing.  In addition to her birthday dress and matching baby's dress, I whipped together little aprons for her party friends (to protect their party dresses while they decorated the cupcakes).  I also sewed little birthday crowns, which they each decorated with adorable vintage-styled pictures of cupcakes, birds, butterflies, flowers - everything Victorian that you could imagine.  Here's a very short video of Jena blowing out her candles.  Almost. :-)
Games and presents completed the fun day!

Today was spent at church, and together as a family.  We has a small celebration of Jena's life thus far (she is, after all, only four), which included another set of four candles.
It's been a WONDERFUL weekend! Happy Birthday, Jena! WE LOVE YOU!!

Oh, Good Grief!

The last day of the last month of 2010.
I liked saying "twenty-ten".  I hope to hear the trend continue with "twenty-eleven".  I cringe just a bit whenever I hear someone utter "two-thousand and eleven".

So here's to a FANTABULOUS twenty-ten, and all best wishes for an incredilicious twenty-eleven!
