Lili's 6th birthday, take 1

Lili seems to have multiple birthday celebrations each year.

This year party one was a get together with her best school girlfriends to make 'stained glass' candle holders from recycled glass jars and tissue paper - which I messed up by accidentally buying crepe paper...that was being sold in tissue paper shape. Boo.

Oh well, the girls didn't care and we all had fun.

After the activity, chocolate-filled croissants and juice, we headed downstairs and outside to our patio where the girls, each dressed in one of Lili's princess dresses, skated around on the in-line skates and scooters they had all brought along.

Despite some histrionics from Lili when I let her best friend wear one of Lili's favorite real dresses, which she had forgotten she owned (we were one princess dress short), and the general complications involved in managing 9 little girls and moving them from outside, to the 11th floor, and back out again, fun was had.

Lily drew this the other day. Why a skeleton? Don't know.

I liked that he had knees and elbows.

Those things between the two 'Lili's are hearts, by the way.

I'm back (?)

2012 is the year I start blogging again. A bold statement, but let's see if I can stick to it.

Reason: Looking back at old blog posts from when Lily was small, I realize that they are invaluable! There are memories of things we did, worries I was having, phases Lily was going through, that I had completely forgotten!

To keep the blogging achievable and non-boring, I'm aiming for short, sweet blog nuggets.

Let's do this.
