I'm Still Here!

Wow. So much time has flown by since my last post. In fact, I was quite busy wining and dining for my birthday, that I simply did not have any time to write :) This is true, you know. I didn't have one particular shindig. It was more like lots of several little ones. Some at restaurants and some at friends and family. With an inpromptu adoption group dinner with 2 other families in between. And since I got a lovely new purse camera for my BD from Hubs, I was unclear on how to download my pics. All is solved and I am including some of them here.

Cara-Li and E playing a duet
In the last 2 weeks, the girls and I have been to the Shriners Circus with J. It is a cheesy circus but my goodness, is it ever fun! We go every year but this year's show was much improved. They had new acts and new talent but some things just never change. You HAVE to ride the elephant when you go to the Shriners Circus. It certainly is THE highlight of the evening!

Cara-Li and I also went to Cirque Eloize at PDA. This circus is more like Cirque du Soleil. In fact, many of the performers are ex-Cirque. This too was an excellent show.

It was the end of the soccer for Cara-Li this past weekend. Not a moment too soon for her. I just don't understand her. She complains about it until she gets to the field. And then off she goes playing like she enjoys it. And she's pretty darn good too!

Also this past weekend, Alexia moved into her toddler bed. I know some of you are thinking, what? She was in a crib until now. What can I say? She loved her crib! But more importantly, she now adores her new big little girl bed.

And on rainy Sunday, we went apple picking. I helped organize this trip with my Italian association and it was quite fun. We picked apples in the morning and then had a huge m├ęchoui lunch with a band and entertainment. Needless to say there was no dinner that evening!

And finally, here is a picture of Alexia wearing her school uniform for the very first time. Check out the shoes... there's apples on them just like her uniform. Got these 3 years ago even before we knew who Alexia was!

Glad your back (in blogland). Looks like it's been all fun and games chez vous lately. That's wonderful. Love Alexis's little uniform. How did she grow up so fast?

Psst.....I had Dahlia in her crib even longer. She just loved it.
