Goosie turns 5 today!


Happy Birthday, Goosie!

It's seems so incredible that it has been 5 years already!

Leo and I are so very proud of our Goosie! She approaches the world with wide eyes and wonder. It's amazing how a 5 year old can see something good in everyone and I just wish that innocence could remain.

She has become such a beauty and wonder to us... even on the days of feather boas, Barbies, and dress up :).

Goosie's first sleepover...

(photos by Hilary Rondeau Photography)

This weekend Goosie had her very first sleepover with two sweet little girls! It was a grand time and I was able to get a few photos for their Mommy and Daddy! And... I had a chance to experiment with the lens I received from my parents for Christmas and the awesome flash I received from hubby for my birthday!
We had a grand time together! Eating little pizzas, mini tacos, little egg rolls... taking a pink bubble bath (thanks to the crayola bath dyes), watching a viewmaster slideshow in the tub, too...
We watched the Disney Princess Pajama Party video, baked cookies and then tucked everyone into bed...
They went to sleep quickly and woke to cinnamon buns from the oven!
Leo and I had a great time with the girls!!!!

Boomer and the flu...

Boomer's favorite toys...

boomer with the flu

Boomer has had the flu now for a couple days...

Thankfully, today is a "snow day" which should, actually, be called an "ice day."

No errands, ballet, visiting... just resting...

Boomer made this makeshift bed downstairs with some help from Mommy...

But he made this little pile all by himself in case he wanted to play...

Chocolate... why, why, why are you so bad?


I have a love affair going on... we have been together for years and it's no secret...





If you pair it with peanut butter...

I'm like an Orange County Housewife at a Botox party!

(yes, I love those crazy women... I guess I just like to watch train wrecks in action :).


My Chocolate Lover will be replaced soon with lower fat options...

however, that doesn't mean that I won't sneak a little kiss here or there...

or... stop making treats with chocolate...

I just need a little less chocolate...

maybe I could replace it with...
