Today AJ and I got up, went for a 2 1/2 mile walk and then stopped a the park to play on the way home. We BOTH went down the slide, played on the teeter totter and talked and laughed together.
Later I pushed both he and Micaela on our swing set in our yard.
During this time Micaela informed me........."Mom, when I grow up, I want to be a famous ballerina and a school teacher." I told her I knew that she could be both and would be great at them. And then AJ, stuttering, trying to get his thoughts out said......
"And Mom......when I grow up.........I want to dance with Micaela and be a Grandpa!"
It was too cute.
I cherish my time with my children. They make me so happy!!

Afterwards we had a luncheon at our house.
Lauren's (after baptism) dress turned out beautiful, thanks to lots of hard work and a whole week of Nana's life dedicated to getting this made. The top is made of silk dupionni, and the bottom is organza with embroidered flowers with pearl centers. Lauren's main request, "I want a HUGE bow!". It is huge, that's for sure! We all worked hard and conspired to have this designed just perfect for how Lauren wanted it. She loves it!!! I had some beautiful pictures taken by my friend who is a photographer (Becca Nae Photography). When I get the digital images of her shoot, I'll post some of them (the above is one of her shots. I know this is lame, but I took a 'picture' of a 'picture'. I purchased a 20x24 pic, and I don't have the digital image so I took a picture of it:)
The family pic isn't that great, with the sun in our eyes. But it is our family, including me, on Lauren's special day! And it definitely was a special day!

We had such a fun party for Lauren's 8th birthday. In the past we have had as many as 21 children invited to her birthday party, and that year every single one showed up!!! That year Lauren didn't even have any fun, either. There were just too many kids!!! And mass chaos!
Cupcakes I made. The top was a fruit by the foot that I twisted and rolled up to look like a rose. It looked better than it does in this picture. I was kinda proud of my creation, actually :)
