Shawnie's 4th Birthday

I love these parties at 'Pump It Up'. The kids get to play and celebrate with their friends and us Moms get to visit and catch up. It's the best!!!

Jessie and Token

Jessie was glad to have Token, the class pet, for 3 sleeps. I think he had fun with the Lewis Girls.

Daddy Day

Jessie's been waiting and waiting for this day to arrive. Daddy Day at Town and Country! Jessie took her favorite person to school today and showed him all that she does. They played on the playground, sang a song and did a craft together. Then they had a special daddy and daughter lunch... just the two of them!

Grandma Lang's Birthday

We celebrated 2 things today... Grandma Lang's Birthday and St. Patty's Day. We drove up to AL and had lunch with Grandma Lang, Grandma Furnare and Auntie Ann. It's always wonderful when we get together and since we don't live that close, I cherish every moment. Happy Birthday! We love you!!!!

Gigi's 5th Birthday

Oh what a fun filled birthday it was for Gigi. She started her day by opening presents in the morning. She was the birthday queen at school and passed out her favorite yellow and pink cookies to her friends. For dinner the whole family went to Gigi's favorite restaurant, Frascati's.

I can't believe Gigi is 5. There are so many things we love about Gigi. We love her yellow hair and bright blue eyes. We love her huge heart made of sweetness and sugar. She is always a pleasure to be with and Mom and Dad's beautiful buddy. She looks up to her big sis Josie and makes sure she keeps little sis, Jess in line. She helps me feed Baby Van and loves him dearly. She loves her teacher Miss Kathy and loves to play freeze tag with her friends. My favorite thing about Gigi is she always wakes up with a smile and never runs out of her sweet pillow kisses. We are lucky to have such a special girl in our lives.

Josette's 8th Birthday

Our beautiful little girl turns 8 tomorrow. She wanted a party, so we had a little party to celebrate both Josette and Gigi. Josette's birthday is on the 13th and Gigi's is on the 15th so they decided to celebrate and open presents together. That's what we did first thing in the morning, then ate cinnamon rolls, put on fancy dresses and waited for guests to arrive. The kids spent the day running around, eating pizza and playing while the adults spent time visiting. We ended up in the yard showing off our gymnastics skills. Sherry is a pro and the kids loved sommersalts and cartwheels.

Josette is a special girl. She is kind, smart, caring and always a pleasure to be with. She thinks deeply about things and always makes the right choice. She is a GOOD person now and I know she will be as an adult. I don't know what it is, but she has that special something that makes people want to be around her. She is a wonderful older sister and a dream to have as a daughter. I look forward to watching her grow and seeing the many wonderful things that come her way. Happy Birthday and I LOVE YOU, Josette!

Sherry's Birthday

40 is here, 40 is fabulous and 40 looks good on Sherry! We spoiled her for her big day. Cathy, Heather and I met in Santa Monica at Casa Del Mar for drinks. We then checked into the beautiful and chic Huntley Hotel. Next, we made our way to the Viceroy where Renee, Jen and Karen surprised Sherry. For dinner we made reservations at The Penthouse Restaurant in the Huntley where she was surprised yet again by Ang, Deb, Missy, Michelle Kelly and Michelle Roberts. All the girls came out to join Sherry for her birthday. It was a wonderful getaway for us all and an exciting start to many new beginnings for Sherry. As she starts her 40th year she is thankful for her beautiful children, many friends, a new home and growing business. To my best friend always... Happy Birthday!!
