Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggity Dog!




Thanks to a friend of ours that had extra tickets, we were able to make it to the Friday afternoon show of Disney Clubhouse Live. If you're not sure about the title of this post, then you either don't have children or they are over the age of 5. The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse dance is the "Hot dog" song by They May Be Giants. If you haven't heard it, then you are definitely missing out! We had a great time. Thanks N.H.!!

Couldn't Resist!


I was looking through some old pics and couldn't resist posting this! This was E's 2nd Halloween (he was only a few weeks old on his first!) Have you ever seen a "Yoda" cuter than this one?!? I, actually, look forward to the time when my boys are old enough to watch and love "Starwars" like their Daddy. How funny that this would be a goal of mine?
As I reflect on the years that have so quickly gone by and look forward to many more "first times," I remind myself to live in the moment. Not to dwell on the past and wish for the future, but to cherish each and every day.

Valentine's Day in New York

One of my most memorable Valentine's Days was in 2005 when R decided on a spur of the moment trip to New York. Along with some friends, we flew up for the weekend. Now, mind you, I knew it was cold, but I greatly underestimated the power of the wind in between those tall skyscrapers. Nevertheless, we bundled up and trudged on block after windy block to see the sights. We saw "Phantom" on Broadway, we dined at Tavern on the Green, we went to the Today Show (which, by the way, you have to get up PRETTY early in the morning for!) ---all those famous New York "things." It was great --and extrememly cold!
One of the best presents of the week, though, was found right at home when we returned. That's when we found out I was pregnant with E. E's been to the Big Apple and doesn't even know it! Although this Valentine's Day will be a little less glamorous, it will be spent with the 3 men that I now have. Who could ask for more?
