Tooth Fairy time!

We've reached another milestone, Lola has lost her first tooth! It was quite an exciting evening last night. She surprised us all by pulling it out herself!
The tooth fairy left her two gold dollar coins and the below photo. Lola was happy to see that her fairy has brown hair but was a little concerned that she was barefoot.
Way to go baby girl!!! We are so proud of you!

Lola at the museum

Mommy, Daddy and Lola day at the museum

Halloween 2011

Little miss Lola got to trick or treat in Illinois this year where she also headed over to Brookfield Zoo for the Boo at the zoo. This 50s girl had a great week getting spoiled at Grumpa & Grandma Joni's house and scoring a ton of halloween loot from the neighbors.

another wedding where my kid dances the night away

We went to Greg & Liz's wedding yesterday in Sandusky. It was fabulous! Everything about this event was perfect! The location (Sunnybrook Trout Club) was off the charts. I loved that they decorated with flowers in jars and didn't have a guest book, instead a watercolor of a tree where guests left a fingerprint in place of a leaf. Everything was so simple, laid back and beautiful. Who knew that laid back and beautiful could be put together? I didn't. I should have taken more photos but I had way too much catching up with old friends to do.

The kids had so much fun! We were lucky to catch a glimpse of Ian the majority of the night. He was off with his friend Jayden playing Nerf guns on the grounds while Lola and her friend Isabel cut some serious rug. Not only were they dancing but they were going at it full blown rave style with fake candles.

Congratulations Greg & Liz! We are so happy for you!
Love you guys!

Happy Birthday Peggy!!!!!!! woot woot, paartaay!

Happy Birthday Mom!!!! I will be so happy if I look half as good as you do when I turn 60! SIXTY! holy crap... You don't look a day over 35, I swear! Remember that one time before Sam knew you and we were walking around the mall. He came up to us cursing away and knowing him dropping the F bomb all over town until I said "hey Sam, meet my Mom" HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!! I'd like to say he was an idiot but it was an honest mistake since you look so young.

We love you and can't wait to see you soon, yay!!!!!

Cousin time!

Lots of little girls in this mix means lots of high pitch screaming, giggling, taking, singing and laughing.  It's a perfect day with family!

Mommy & Lola day

My little Lola and I had a nice girls day out today. We started the day off by walking down to the park where she played in the creek. This was great fun because she had on her rain boots and thought it was awesome to play rain forest. Our next stop was to Old Navy where she got her face painted, picked out a cute new pair of shoes, dress, a t-shirt for her brother and swim trunks for her Daddy. (nothing for Mommy)
After our shopping trip we headed off to the dairy farm where Lola fed the animals, saw some baby goats, ate ice cream and played on a tractor.
It is so nice to have some special time with my girl where we are on no schedule, no work and no school. It was a perfect day!

just like Nadia Comăneci

Our little Lola started gymnastics tonight and she is clearly on her way to giving old school Nadia Comăneci a run for her money. It took her a few minutes to get comfortable with the class and once she did she was on a roll. The class she is in is for 3-5 year olds and had 4 kids, 3 girls and 1 boy along with 2 teachers. It's a great class and I was so impressed at how well the teachers keep the kids focused! The class time is 45 minutes and it went by so fast. Lola had a great time and she can't wait to go back.

Lola and the dinosaur

Here is Lola creating her most recent jaw dropping masterpiece, a dinosaur.  I don't want to be one of those annoying bragging Moms but holy crap... MY KID CAN DRAW!  I am so proud of her and she was very proud too!
