Candy for my Stocking

As a child, I got a LifeSavers Storybook (8 packs of LifeSavers) in my stocking every year. This year, my mother gave me a singular pack of Wild Cherry LifeSavers (my favorite flavor) in my stocking and I could't be happier! I am on the way home from NYC (an awesome trip) but the " NYC blizzard" has made returning home significantly longer than expected. We are on the 'express train' but it is still taking much longer than the regular train normally would. My wild cherry LifeSavers (and the fact that I could still be sitting in Penn Station waiting for a train) are doing a great job at keeping me positive!

Christmas 2010 - TIMES SQUARE

Sharon and I ended up in New York on December 26th during a major snow blizzard. We ran around Times Square and Broadway while 6 Inches of snow blanketed the city!

4th Birthday

Really, It's not that I don't want and need to post about Sybella's 4th birthday but oh my goodness, I just realized that I have been so busy, I haven't posted a thing in December!
So here goes:

On Dec 1st Sybella turned 4 years old. I can't believe it's been 4 years since our only girl, a princess, and a perceived 1st born (both the boys were in school by the time she came along) came into our lives. Amazing.   [Note: I intended to put a photo here from when she was born and I just realized that I haven't transferred them from my other computer...oops]

This year Sybella had a birthday week of fun and adventure.
On her birthday, her preschool went on a field trip to a local Tiny Tots Concert.
Then, after dinner we opened her gifts from our family-- it was a lady bug year as requested by the birthday girl.

On Dec 2nd, I braved Chuck-E-Cheese to host a party with all of Sybella's friends from preschool. She had never been to CEC before but clearly marketing works because she spent months telling us that she wanted to have her party there. (she must have seen a commercial?)

On Dec 3rd, we took fancy cookies to class to celebrate at school. They gave her a crown and she was the center of attention for the day.

Sybella had an awesome birthday week- hope she's not expecting that kind of fan fare every year! :0)
