It’s been some real time since I have posted here and my husband keeps threatening to stop the domain/hosting payments if I am done blogging. I always say no, I plan to post this week, but then I never do. So because I love having this little journal, to one day share with Stella and share with those of you that care (i.e. my Mom and her poor friends that she forces my blog on). Anyway, just gonna pick some moments over the last year to catch up. Ok I am going to attempt to run January-July 2017 here.
John’s Birthday last January. 41!
Valentine’s Day 2017. She picked out the Ms. Potato Head Lips for this photo.
This night we introduced her to the music from CATS. She had to dig out an old dance costume to sing Memory. Benjamin was a fan.
2017 was a year with more open-minded food exploration. Here she discovered ramen and teriyaki chicken.
Rapunzel takes Disneyland.
Knock Knock Knocking on Tinkerbell’s door. Oh to be four and believe in magic.
St. Patricks Day 2017. Happy Go Lucky!
Om! A little yoga/meditation at the Nature Center. She enjoys doing Cosmic Kids Yoga and it’s a good influence on her.
Santa Ana Zoo carousel. Please never out grow this.
Kindergarten Festival. Starting big kid school still seemed so far away back then. Would you believe these three girls met in Gymboree Class when they were not even a year old? Sofie, Stella and Grace. So sweet to see them grow up together.
Play dates with Genna.
Grandparents visit, Legoland and Balboa Park.
Showing off her Grandpa’s recipe for White Spaggy in the Prechool Cookbook.
Lily’s Wonder Woman Birthday Party.
Spring Break Camping in El Capitan. Her first official camping trip and she LOVED it. Learned how to climb a tree too!
Love this picture from the Aquarium.
Mother’s Day means matching dresses supplied by Gigi.
Long Beach Pride
Preschool Graduation. This was a bittersweet day.
Palm Springs Getaway. Mostly spent poolside.
Love! She calls him her brother. She is pretty adamant that he really is.
Sisters Night Out at the IMOMSOHARD comedy tour! Laughed so hard.
Uncle Tim, Grandpa and Stella’s Birthday Party for family.
Playdate with Jane and Miles.
2017 Dance Recital. Mary Poppins and her class danced to Supercalifragilisticespialidocious! Adorable show!
5th Birthday! We spent the day at a hotel in San Diego since John had to work overnight down there on her birthday. She loved eating room service grilled cheese, lava cake and swimming that night and the next day. Then we stopped at Gigi and Grandpa’s for dinner and more dessert on the way home.
5th Birthday Party, a Fairy and Gnome House Building Extravaganza. Perfect day in the park with friends and family.
Fourth of July! Johns’ garden was prolific all summer, especially the tomatoes!
The Sawdust Festival. Ok that’s it for now.
