A Friendly Reminder....

That our friends rock. To wit:

-We got to celebrate Maia and Amanda's nuptials BBQ style. Our favorite kind of celebration.

- Steph brought over a snake caught by her cat. The girls were out of their minds excited. Fortunately, I was not home. Gross.

-Next to Auntie Cathy, our birthday cakes look like masterpieces. 

And if perchance we don't have friends around to entertain us, there's always funny cat videos. 

Sorry for the short post, but I have to pack for the beach. Again. No complaints over here :-)

I Am a Promise. I Am a Possibility...

The post I have been dreading. The end of pre-K, have to deal with the fact that my oldest is getting older and therefore I am getting older too post. *Heavy sigh*

Luckily, my great big bundle of poten-tial-ity put on a heck of year end show and the jittery camera work was NOT AT ALL due to the fact that I was trying not to sob openly. Nope, I think there was a passing earthquake or something. We were so, so lucky to have a great year at a great school that Luce truly loved. She even ended the year on a high note by "winning" the coveted pre-K family book. And by "winning" I mean I dropped $30 on raffle tickets to help fund wells in Africa. That's what Lucia is taking about when she says charity water in the clip.... kids today with their raised consciousnesses. Honestly. So there was all of that... and meanwhile, Carmen was around too, being neglected of course.   Sorry Carmen, I'll put $30 toward your therapy sessions ASAP.
