The rest of the page talked about where to be, what to wear, what time to be there, etc. This is her […]

Today Lily and I were at the airport waiting for JP when I realized that the t-shirt she was wearing used to be a night-shirt. When she first got it as a gift in May of 2008 it was really big on her. I went back into my archives and found pictures of her wearing […]

When I was a kid, we loved to make friendship bracelets out of embroidery floss. We would weave different designs and give them to each other. It was so much fun. We even took it a step further and started weaving them into pieces in the back of our hair. Oh the memories. A couple […]

When I checked the mail yesterday I pulled a package out that was addressed to Lily from JP’s parents Bob and Marlene. Assuming it was for Valentine’s Day I told her that she couldn’t open it until Valentine’s Day. Today I told her that if she calls Marlene and asks for permission to open it […]

Lily and I were driving through the neighborhood today when she said “Mom, why are those signs all of the neighborhood?” I told her it was for the neighborhood watch. Then she said “I know that but why is there a pirate ship on the sign?” Do you see it? I told her it was […]

When Lily told me this morning that she was hungry I told her I didn’t feel like making breakfast. She said that she would make it. She ran upstairs to grab her American Girl Doll Lilly and their matching aprons. Are they the cutest things ever? I thought she was going to make pancakes but […]
