catching up...

Since I've last posted, a lot has happened.
My oldest child has turned 9! We've celebrated. A lot. In fact, we'll be celebrating through the end of the month. Now, tell me, who wouldn't want a whole month of birthday celebrations?!

This is our beloved Auntie Tata with Via and Yaya. Auntie Tata is Via's godmother. Perhaps the best adult in her whole life. Auntie Tata loves and cherishes Via in a way that only a godmother can, showering her with all sorts of crazy attention!

We went to share a pizza at Galactic Pizza in Uptown. It was a wonderful day. We sat outside in the sunshine and were treated to a "show" by Tata, Noni and Yaya. The sun certainly cooperated by acting the part of the spot light! Everyone shared a laugh together - it was fun.

Oma and Papa were there, too.

Noni wore her hat and an outfit that truly suits her personality. I think that she would be right at home in the 70's LA hippy culture - surfin' and groovin' and lovin' everyone...
We had a fabulous time!
I will write more about our month when I return. Hopefully, tomorrow.

Wow! I can't believe a) Via is 9 and b) she's still in love with that hat! What an adorable hippie-chick!
