Hi, blog!! It's been a long time. I haven't posted since November, so instead of trying to catch up, I'm just going to resign myself to the fact that my blog will have a giant black hole for Christmas, New Year's and the awful, awful winter months of 2015-16. It happens. I have photo albums. I don't think my kids will notice that I didn't write blog posts for these four months. I will not let myself become paralyzed with the idea that I have to blog about Christmas before I can blog about right now. So.....here's what happening right now:
BIRTHDAY SEASON has begun! It's the only thing that keeps me motivated through the dreary, dark, cold months of winter. Mom's birthday is April 1st, and I have a big post planned because she's turning SIXTY! Sylvia's birthday is April 8th and this year my sweet, precious, first born child is spending her birthday in France WITHOUT ME and I'm freaking out about it (don't worry, she's going with her Daddy and it will be wonderful - but I'm jealous and a little bit nervous and a lot bit sad because I'd rather be in France with them). Then there's May with all the fun that May brings, then Margot's birthday is in June and Albert's birthday is in July and I love nothing more than celebrating the days that my kids were born, so get ready for lots of birthday posts.
We already had Sylvia's kindergarten birthday party at the Cincinnati Observatory and it was AWESOME. I don't have ANY pictures, but my mother in law took some great ones and posted them here. The kids played games and ate cake and listened to my cousin, Aaron, teach them about space and telescopes! They got to see the moon and Jupiter through the giant telescope and their tiny minds were totally BLOWN! It was so fun.
This weekend, we celebrate Joyceburg Eiben and I can't wait to post my thoughts about her 60th birthday. Stay tuned!
