Back in the west

I'm home now from NYC and settling back into life. It was a great time and I'm excited to be back with my little family.

I was surprised at how much I loved the city. There is so many places to explore and I'm excited to share my favorites once I can organize my pics.

I made some daily activity gifts for the girls. I wanted to make sure Dave had something fun to do and the girls had a small reminder of mama. They were pretty excited to open the gifts and had lots of fun playing with the treats.

The girls had a great time with daddy and he did a fantastic job. He gets the Super-Star hubby award. (If I knew photoshop, I would fancy myself an award for that one.)

Here's what mama brought home for the family. None other than Yankee hats. How cute are they? (You think Eloise would be a little more excited?)

And while I was gone, I missed my little Lily counting to 10 for the first time all by herself. She was walking down the stairs with Dave one morning and just started counting. I'm so proud of her.

More to come from NYC.

Yay! Welcome home! I'm so glad you had a good time. And they are SO cute. Even if they are wearing Yankee hats.

I can't wait to hear all about it. I thought of you often, and would always pray for you when I did. I hope it went really good.

Im glad that Dave and the girls survived. I knew he would do just great. He's a great Pa! :- )
