This is 40.

Well, this is it.  The big 40.  

Just a few pictures of my metamorphosis (there'd be more but I haven't learned how to scan pictures yet to my Mac).  The "awkward" one would be me in 6th grade.  That hair took a lot of aqua net to perfect.  Ha!  

I always thought I would feel so "old" and so "grown up" at 40.  But I still feel like I did as a young adult.  Only smarter.  And with noisier, stiffer joints.  

So if this is 40 I say bring it.  

I'm ready.

Christmas Wish List

Last weekend I let my kids go through the big Target toy ad and circle all the things they thought they might want for Christmas.

I used to love doing this when I was a kid: barbies, dolls, kitchen toys, stuffed animals, games…so many toys to circle.

However, I am again reminded how times have changed.  Hannah did not really circle ANY toys.  Instead:

Cell phones, iPads, and iPods, oh my!

And she is dying for a car she can "drive".

Not sure Santa is going to deliver any of this stuff this year.

Santa thinks she should slow down and play with toys just a little bit longer.

She is 8

I kind of forgot I had a blog.

Without google reader I am really failing at blogging and visiting other friends with any kind of regularity.

However, today is worthy of a post!

Today, Hannah is 8.


While it doesn't exactly feel like yesterday since I had her, it has certainly been a very fast 8 years.

Time flies.  Try to enjoy almost every moment (gotta take a break from enjoying every now and then!).

Happy Birthday Hannah - Love you lots!!

Love the cake - Hannah had the same one when she graduated Pre-K.


Eli was excited to graduate because that meant they got to have cake.

This is Eli with his best buddy.

Coffeehouse Poetry Day!

Hannah's class had a poetry reading in April - the kids read their poems and even some of the parents got to share too!  It was very fun.  

Here are Hannah's poems:


Dough, flip the dough
Sauce, spread the sauce
Cheese, sprinkle the cheese
Pepperoni, put the pepperoni on the cheese
Oven, put the pizza in the oven and...
Snap, you have a pizza!  Enjoy!


America oh America I love you the most
Oh America A-m-e-r-i-c-a America
Is here every day, we're free to do what ever we want
Thanks to the leaders
Oh great America
