six years and two weeks ago



… my dear, sweet, spirited S was born.  She brings humour and fire into our lives.  We held a pool party for her before we left for Ontario.  My family (aunts, uncles, cousins) attended.  We made a prayer flag for her filled with personalized dedications.  I will post a photo, once I have sewn it together (and dug the sewing machine out of the pile of summer madness).  Some of the men, colouring:


It turns out that Miss S has developed many special relationships.  The flag messages were beautiful.

8 years ago, AZ and I had white star lanterns made for our wedding celebration.   I recycled one into a pinata, filled with honey sticks, pencils, nougat, and chocolate.  Pinatas are such a good party activity.  I fantasized about starting a pinata-making business.  That is, until the kids rejected the honey sticks and nougat.  Man.  Maybe I shoulda caved and filled it with Smarties and plastic parachute men?



When we got to Ontario, Oma threw another great party, with the prettiest cake ever:


I love that kid and I suspect the rest of her family does too.
