Wow, you're 7! It's just so exciting! I'm thrilled to see the beautiful, spunky, creative, precocious, nurturing, charming young lady that you are becoming! Thanks for all the giggles, knock-knock jokes that lead nowhere, observations, teaching moments and fun that you have given me and daddy! It's going to be a great year! xoxo, Mom & Dad

I finally got to meet one of my idols! Miss Martha Stewart. Yep. It was amazing. By association of my Gourmet Club, I was able to secure us tickets for our group to go to the show today. The anticipation of going has been so fun because I have been a fan of Martha and all the equity she has brought back into the home and homemaking aspect of life since I was a teenager. I've always been fascinated with executing a lovely dinner table and making it visually appealing, interesting and fun. I love how expeditious she is and how's she's made her life into an art, just being Martha. I find it a compliment when someone says, "You're so Martha," when I've done something creative. ( I won't get into the dark side of Martha, we all have skeletons, eh?! LOL)

Why are Sophia's parties so fun for me and Evan? I think we have just as much fun as the kids! This year, I pulled it together very last minute and I have to admit that Evan did most of the party and I just did the shopping & styling part. We are a great team! Unlike most of my parties, there was no defined theme, but I decided to go with a pink and orange color scheme. It all came together so beautifully.

Evan has finally put his music that he made a few decades ago online. Go here if you want to check it out! You can listen to it and buy it if you want to download it and make us rich-- .69 at a time!

I'm so behind with where I wanted to be with this blog. I skipped such an exciting and fulfilling summer! Hopefully I can fill in more on that later, but first, let me present my school kids....da da ta daaaa....
She was so thrilled to be in the same class with some of her girlfriends from last year! There is so much comfort in familiar faces. The cutest thing was that she was really excited that Nickolas was in her class. Now she isn't particularly close with him but they have been in the same class since nursery school when we first moved here and every year since then, so she was relieved that they are still together.
His teacher is darling and on the first day they just had the boys come to ease them into the program. The day before it was just girls and then the 3rd day is combined. He was so excited to start a new school and find some new friends! He has a grin every day when I go to pick him up!
Here's to a wonderful year! I can't believe I already have a 2nd grader!

All excuses aside. This was the week my daughter would finally be taught how to ride a bike! I knew she was ready and the process took about 20 minutes. Interestingly enough, she did best when Evan and I weren't watching. (or she didn't think we were, at least!) I knew she was ready and that she could do it, I just needed to find away to make her BELIEVE! I was pleased with the results! Wow, my little post September 11th baby has sure come a long way! She's growing up fast!
Yay for bikes! I can't wait until we find a way to get me and Luke in on the action! The infant seat we have doesn't fit any of our bikes. We'll figure something out. Until then, Ride ON!
There's something about a man in a suit and when you get your top 3 in suits, well, it's exhilarating! Last week on one of my shopping trips, I came across a suit that was perfect for Wesley. He was even excited about it and the prospect of looking more like Daddy! I passed the infant aisle and couldn't resist something similar for Luke.
