Sorry to be MIA for so long, but I’ve been working on a DIY project.  I don’t do these things often, so when I do, it takes my undivided attention.  What is it?  Well, I can’t tell/show you just yet because it’s not finished.  Almost, but not quite.  I’ll give you a clue- it involves re-decorating.  Sounds fun, huh?!  Hopefully it will be done by the weekend, and when it is I will tell you all about it.

We also celebrated Lily’s 5th birthday last week.  This year we celebrated together with just our family- at Chuck E. Cheese.  The whole day was really fun and special for her.

Her new bike!

She asked for a butterfly cake because she was looking through pictures and saw that I made her one for her first birthday.  Apparently nostalgia took over and won over Strawberry Shortcake & Hello Kitty.

Here we go…into the world of 5 year olds and kindergarten.
