Halloween Fun For “Dorothy”

Gwendolyn has had an absolute amazing Halloween. She was so darn excited about everything. She quivered with thrill reading about all things Halloween, every special Halloween thing at Preschool was off the charts in her mind, and we both loved using the fun crafts she made there to decorate our front porch. And at home […]

Pumpkin Patch and A New Four Year Old Attitude

Woowee! We have been going, going, going lately. And when we aren’t going out with Miss G we have been working hard on some new changes/updates/projects with theGSF. We are pretty darn excited, but it means I haven’t been blogging about my #1 girl as much as I usually do. There has been lots of […]

Easter 2011

What an awesome Easter!  Easter egg decorating, playing, more playing.  A Gramma slumber party.  Easter egg hunting, Easter basket opening, more Easter basket opening, more Easter egg basket opening, more Easter basket opening.  A beautiful walk to the park, a swing on the swings, a meeting with the turtles at the fountain, checking on G’s […]

Good Things For Gwendolyn — Valentines

I can’t believe it has been a week since Valentine’s Day and I haven’t posted about the many, many good things. Bottom line — Gwendolyn loved all of it! Valentine Party. Our Valentine fun began with a party hosted by our friend Marina a few days before the official day. Marina is one of those […]

Christmas 2010

The last few days have been really special…emotional. Seeing Gwendolyn fully embrace the excitement, the rituals, the stories that surround Christmas simply leaves us weak at the knees. We want nothing more than for our little girl to feel happy and included — and she did in a big way. We started the festivities on […]
