party

Off to the mountains

I know, I know, it feels like we were just away and here we go again.

To West Virginia this time where Christmas feels like Christmas with family, cold and usually snow.

I can’t wait!

But, before we go, it’s small style thursday.

Avo Hayes sent Lily the prettiest Tea Collection blouse and it got here just in time for Lily to wear it to her bff’s second birthday party last sunday. It was perfect!

Well, I got a little more packing to do and a plane to catch!

Happy thursday everyone.

Sofia turns two

Well, it’s monday again. Did this weekend fly by for you as well?

I think it’s the fact that we were so busy this weekend that made it go so fast. No down time at all.

Yesterday afternoon we went to Sofia’s second birthday party.

It was the first time in weeks that Lily was seeing all her friends because of the hand-foot-and-mouth disease.

All the little ones were excited to see each other. There was lots of hugging, hand holding, kissing, smiling and squealing going on.

There were also a couple of firsts for many of them. Virginia Key Park where the party took place had a train and a carousel where all the little ones enjoyed rides.

It was an afternoon well spent and I’m glad Lily got better just in time to make it to her bff’s birthday party.

Happy monday everyone!

Lily’s 2nd birthday party

Happy monday everyone! Hope you all had a great weekend.

So, as I mentioned before, we had Lily’s birthday party on saturday.

Our dear friends Michael and Robbie moved into their beautiful new home 3 weeks ago and were brave enough to let us throw the party in their back yard.

Will and I made pasta salad, cheese and cucumber sandwiches, sweet potato chips, shrimp. D made fruit salad. Our neighbor made the cake. There was juice for the kids and wine for the adults.

The weather was perfect. All the kids played together and ran around having fun the whole time.

We may not have family here in Miami but, we are blessed with friends that are like family and most of them came out and helped celebrate Lily’s birthday.

Lily had a great time and that was the most important thing.

Thank you everyone again for coming and for all the wonderful gifts! xoxo
