Changes and constants, both a blessing

September 18, 2009

I have to say that I’ve enjoyed the rain this week. It really has been a good excuse to stay indoors and get things done – or at least intend to get things done. This week my Little A started Mother’s Day Out. So far she loves it, and according to her teacher (“Nonnie”, who [...]

A full week

August 28, 2009

We’ve had a very busy week so far. It’s involved Meet the Teacher, gymnastics, Chuck E. Cheese, haircuts, taking Dixie to the vet (for excessively licking like a lizard), Big A’s first day of school and cleaning. On Monday night we had Meet the Teacher night. I am SO thrilled with Big A’s FIRST GRADE [...]

Big A turns 6 and sweet newborn photos

June 30, 2009

I had great intentions of what kind of time I was going to devote to my blog before leaving on our vacation. But my intentions were only that. I wanted to write a detailed post about Big A’s 6th birthday bash and a post showing several pics from my latest shoots. For now, this will [...]

Spotlight on Big A

June 3, 2009

It’s been such a fun, busy and exciting time of year. I’ve had a lot on my plate with business stuff, but my main priority has taken the spotlight…my girls. This post is all about Big A and her end of the year festivities. Can’t believe she’s almost a first-grader! I’ll save the sentimental post [...]

iPhone photo gallery tour

January 27, 2009

Initially I was going to do a post just about yesterday – spending all day at Alex’s school volunteering, but I decided to include a couple more photos that I’ve taken with my iPhone (which by the way is magical, except for the camera…not so great). At Alex’s school, the teachers get a day to [...]

So here’s what we’ve been up to…

December 19, 2008

We’ve been crazy busy at the Andrews house. On December 14th Little A turned two! We actually had her party the weekend of Thanksgiving. Here are the highlights… The cake (made by Wendy) matched the invitation. Lots of fun! Ava LOVED her gifts. And between all the work, I managed to squeeze in some baking [...]

If you’re concrete sequential, you might not want to read this

September 4, 2008

It’s been a weird week since Alex has started school. It’s quiet around here and we miss her, but Ava sure does look forward to seeing “sissy” in the afternoon, and we’ve enjoyed our own bonding time. Despite an overwhelming first day, Alex is loving school. Surprisingly she wants to buy her lunch everyday, instead [...]

Endings and Beginnings

August 27, 2008

Today is the end of our sleeping in, staying in our pjs until 11 and just hanging out with each other on the weekdays. It is the beginning of new adventures, lifelong friends, and tons of learning. Alex started kindergarten today. Despite what I thought, it was pretty easy. Really, she was so excited, and [...]

Party like a pop star

June 25, 2008

We had a weekend full of parties and fun – all surrounding the theme of Hannah Montana. I don’t even think that there was as much New Kids On The Block paraphernalia when they were popular (although we did own those gigantics pins/picture frames that we sat on our desks in 7th grade) as there [...]

June 17, 2008

Today was a very special day. Big A turned five years old. On one hand it seems strange that she’s only five, because it’s like she’s always been here, and we can’t even remember what it was like before her. On the other hand, it’s crazy that she’s already five. It’s flown by, and it’s [...]
