halloween party

for the past two years we have had intentions of having a halloween party. bought invitations, decorations, games, plates, etc. and not yet have we had one. and aren't we happy we didn't because this year isabella was invited to a halloween party. it had great games, dancing, decorating, it was so much fun for her and the girls. i hung around and can i tell you how wonderful it was to sit back and watch her. i am so proud of her and the group of girls she has chosen to surround herself by. they are all wonderful little girls. i too had a great time visiting and chatting. thanks lori, it was a great memory for the both of us.

TINA TURNER. we went to her concert last night and had a blast. she is, i believe, 68. can  you even imagine to look like that, let alone have her energy at that age. we had great seats, met some great people. we have a new friend dave who is a total tina turner roadie. when her tour is over he will have gone to 60 concerts. it was great. have you been to a concert lately? who would you love to see?

Hope your Weekend was Great

aren't weekends fabulous. we just love them around here. on saturday we were in our pj's (except Daddy) until 3pm. Just playing, picking up, working, it was great. 
i have to share this with you, i thought it was so cute. 
awhile back i saw densel washington on oprah. one thing i remember about the hour program was something he told his children over and over, specially when they didn't feel like doing there homework, chores or whatever they needed to do. he always told them "Do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do" i LOVED the saying and wanted to instill it in my kiddos, (as well as myself)
SO, on saturday isabella needed to get some things done and she didn't feel like it. her little sister sophia, told her, "Isabella, do what you have to do so you can do what you want to do" oh my gosh, i thought it was so great. i was at the market, so daddy called to tell me what sophia said. how cute is that. 
its so true, for any of us. 
have a great monday,

simple joys

the girls are into writing and drawing. as simple as making a list and boxes, checking off what we have done, or drawing pictures of pieces of clothing. daddy bought them 99 cent note pads. it kept them busy the entire weekend. where ever we went they brought their books. it was great seeing what they were drawing and writing. 
we had a great weekend, enjoying time together. hope you did too.
