Easter Eggs

My Mom is currently a patient at a well known hospital in New York City. She isn’t able to receive any visitors under the age of eleven, so I thought she would like to see a few photos of her grandkids (with my Dad) dying easter egg yesterday. Here you go Mom!

About my mom

First, let me say thank you so much for all the wonderfully supporting comment on my last post – all of your prayers and good thoughts made a difference and now my mom is resting at home. She has an illness we hope to be able to manage and will now have to take things one day at a time. Thank you again for your support.

Remember in my Valentine’s Day post I mentioned my mother not feeling well? On Friday night she was admitted into the hospital with some sort of infection. Right now we still don’t know what is wrong and are waiting for the results of her blood cultures and bone marrow biopsy. Needless to say, we are all worried…

So, it would be greatly appreciated if you guys could just keep my family in your thoughts. Thanks.

For Quey Quey (grandma) and Grandpa

Leah made this card for her grandparents today. My mother is under the weather, so we figured this is the best way to send our love! Hope everyone has a happy Valentine’s Day!

My weekend

It was one of those weekends where everything fell right into place. It started on Saturday which was a planned girl’s day out. Myself and three of my good friends headed into New York City to see Legally Blonde on Broadway. It was a perfect feel good show, with upbeat music and funny dialogue. Click on the below clip to see the beginning of the show.

After heading back over the Hudson river, we all had dinner together and enjoyed the fact that there wasn’t a high chair or snotty nose at our table.

On Sunday my almost six year old daughter and I went to Chinese school and then hit the bookstore afterwards for some mommy/daughter browsing. Last night I sat down to watch some football goodness and was thrilled by the HUGE NY Giants win last night (yep, I’m a die hard Giants fan, having had it drilled into me since I was a toddler)! It was the perfect (and very exciting ending) to a great weekend!

Sorry I’ve been MIA around here – I have been spending a lot of my free time reading, so I update my book blog much more often. Stop on by if you have a chance – I will be hosting a book giveaway there in a couple days.

Over the weekend

We just spent a weekend at an indoor water park, where we rented a suite with two other families. In total there were six adults, three five year olds, two three year olds and two one year olds (got it)? That’s thirteen people all in one suite! This is the first time our families have ever gone away together even though we have been friends since our five year olds were just babies. It turned out to be wicked fun, all of us got along great and the kids were exhausted by the time we got out of there yesterday.

Maya wasn’t really into the water park experience and would rather have her Dad hold her than get too wet!

Leah on the other hand cried when we had to leave and can’t wait to go back.

I have to say that Joe and I are very blessed- we have found many “couple” friends that have children the same ages as ours that we enjoy spending time. It made the experience extra nice for all of us that we were able to share it with our friends.

Christmas day

Wow, I took a month long bloggy break and didn’t even realize it! December has truly been a crazy month in preparation for the big day. It’s now Christmas evening and the kiddos are snuggled in their beds. It really was a low key day for us and that’s exactly how I like it. Leah was thrilled to receive a huge sled and her first American Girl doll from Santa. Maya on the other hand couldn’t care less about opening presents – she was much more interested in the wrapping paper.



I hope you all had a wonderful holiday too! See you in 2008! 

P.S. I can’t take credit for these digital layouts – they were pre-made and came with my recent order of this holiday kit from Shabby Princess. For another really cute digital scrapbooking hybrid project, check out my craft blog.
