A 50s GREASE themed party?  Yes, please and thank you.
Friday night, Henry transformed into a tuff greaser.  It’s amazing how fabulous a little charcoal can be for faux facial hair (simply burn the end of a wine cork, and voila! instant charcoal).  I know this post is photo heavy, but sometimes stories are best told [...]

The Long Journey

To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a time, but we must keep on stepping.

Kate + Henry, 2005
Our morning began with a flurry of passing time, one which required me to locate a missing shoe and sign a permission slip with seconds to spare.  As always, it’s a constant [...]

For now, though, I’ll enjoy the little hints of summer. And you? You can enjoy them too. . .

Best. Day. Ever.

Best. Day. Ever. – February 13, 2010
We celebrated Henry’s 8th birthday with a Bowling Bash, and the entire night he was a whirling dervish.  If he were a cartoon character, he’d be a blur of color flitting across the screen.  He was beyond happy.  And as any parent knows, when your child is feliz, you’re [...]

The Third Wheel

The Third Wheel, February 9, 2010
Those who know Kate well, know this face and this attitude.   The attitude with the angry eyes, the chin tucked firmly into chest, the arms akimbo.  Yes, that’s the one.  The one where mama throws her arms up in desperation and daddy sighs with frustration.  This is the Kate we [...]

Double Jackpot

Double Jackpot, February 1, 2010
When I picked the kids up from school today, Henry was quite excited to share his great news!
“Mama, tengo cien porciento en matemáticas y en lenguage!“  (Mama, I got 100% in math and language!).
Moments like these would make any mama proud, but being Henry’s Mama in moments just like this makes [...]

Fuzzy and Bright

Fuzzy + Bright, January 30, 2010
My little man is always chipper and ready to start the day, no matter what time the clock reads! From sunrise to sunset, this boy is ready to roll!  I love the fuzzy and bright look that morningtime brings!
