Happy Birthday Katherine

Happy Birthday Katherine, our little Bright Sunshine! Flat Stanley, I'm sure, would wish you a very happy day too, if he could talk (oh, the memories)!
(yes, my computer is up and running for a day or two more!!)

Under Construction

Yes, we are under construction and my computer is being unplugged and moved. So, "I'll see you when I see you" (what movie is that quote from?) or when my computer gets hooked back up to the net!! Enjoy!

Snow White

I think I am the luckiest person around because I have been to two, yes two, Tea Parties where *Snow White* has appeared! My niece threw together a last minute affair and invited me and Brooke who I was tending while her mom, dad and brother Jack were in Disneyland seeing Mickey! As you can see she was a bit nervous around the other party goers. (Oh, I need to thank Aunt Liz for lending us Brooke's Snow White dress and head band).
And then we found the "magic" of an apple in getting a little someone to stand in a group picture!
And then "She" Snow White appeared and she had an apple to entice Brooke to come sit by her but.... it took a pair of shoes...
Brooke's shoes, that is, to see if they would fit the beautiful Snow White.
In case your wondering, the shoes didn't fit... you know this is Snow White, not Cinderella!
Let the Punch Tea Party begin! Brooke couldn't believe that she was being aloud to drink from a regular cup and not one that had a lid attached! Best Tea Party ever!!!
Soooooooo good!!!!!

Snow White had a beautiful wood book and pictures.
Look........ Look, Snow White left red lip stick on her cup and she was a good girl and ate all her cake.
And so did this little princess too.
Once upon a time has turned into twice upon a time for me and yes it was stillllll magical!! Thank you Snow White, thank you Marcie and thank you Aunt Karen for letting Brooke and I have a wonderful, magical, fun "happily ever after" time!
PS. Snow White said she was going to hurry back to Disneyland to see Brooke's brother Jack with her friend Mickey Mouse!

Okay, I haven't blogged for 17 days.... I'm tired..... Just looking at all the energy the kids have
helps a little. Below little 1 yr. old Lilly loves to climb in - and - out (gotta love that little face)!!
We have had some interesting events happen, Savannah (5yrs.) had Kidney surgery on the 9th and hopefully everything will be working AOK!
This was her 1st trip down stairs from mommy's bedroom to eat at the table (instead of eating in bed) with Josh and cousin Brooke and we celebrated with some healthy food!!!
Savannah's 1st car ride and outing after her operation for Sunday dinner at Grandma's.
We made a lovely bed, as you can see, for Savannah to rest on while at Grandma's and the rest of the kids found the carpet wasn't too bad to stretch out on.
Savannah is back in Kindergarten and as a reward got her ears pierced! If I was on top of things I would have had a picture of the new ear rings but as I stated earlier.... I'm tired.
