Our Little Gymnast

Turning 60

On February 11th, my Dad turned 60.  As part of his birthday present (thanks to a fabulous idea on Pinterest) we decided to give Dad 60 memories for 60 years.  A big THANK YOU to everyone who sent memories.  I was nervous about getting 60 memories together, but we somehow managed 62, so I gave him an extra envelope of "some to grow on".

We ordered Dad a "Times of Your Life" book from the New York Times store.  It has a copy of the front page of the New York Times from the year Dad was born till 2011.  A special thanks to Steven from FedEx for bringing the package to my house after a mix up with the delivery!

Dad was very surprised.  Almost all of our family was able to make it to the party.  Here is a picture of Dad with his brothers and sisters (minus Ted who had to work).

As even a bigger surprise (to even the surprise party planner) my brother Kobi and his family drove in from Wisconsin just for the special day!

Happy birthday Dad!  We love you!

My Little Princess

What is it about little girls, they are just drawn to all things girlie.  Siri has definitely got her girlie girl tendencies.  She loves painting her nails.  If she finds some lipstick, watch out, because she is putting it on.  And she loves being a princess. So when my sister-in-law Sarah asked if we wanted to go to Disney Princess Live, we jumped at the chance.

When we got there, it became painfully obvious I am used to being a mommy to boys.  I had dressed my sweetie as Snow White, yet told her for the past week she was Cinderella.  Woops.  Guess I need to get my princesses straight.

The girls enjoyed the show, but they also really enjoyed dancing during intermission.

We had a blast and Siri still wants to wear her "Cinderella" dress all of the time. Oh, how I do love my little princess!
