This photo dates back to our 100+ year old apartment in Buena Park on the city's north side.  2004 – the spring before we moved to the suburbs.

I'm going to review old photos and add them to the blog as I find them.  A short post with photos from March '06 is here.



Claire’s Half Birthday February 16, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — Stephanie Sue @ 8:53 pm

Seeing as she's ten, I DID go on and on about how I hope the last half of her tenth year is {fill in the blank for basically fabulous}.  But her daddy did a great job of balancing me out by wishing that he hopes her SHOES don't wear out before her next birthday.
Cakes, from Casey's in Naperville.  The far one?  That's Cookie Dough Brownie and it may just be To-Die-For.  The only downside is that one bite is more than enough. 
Claire has been ill for the past few days and watched movies most of the day today.  Here she is sitting at the little table in my room watching 'Dirty Jobs' on Netflix.  I know just how she feels: two weeks ago I went through the same horrible cold — I was just a big seeping sack of "Oh, baby"….  My poor girl!ClairesToes

Who says you can't have one Girl and twenty Toes?

(And more than a handful of embarassments on the carpet?)

Happy Half Birthday, to you Claire.  Here's to ending this milestone year with confidence and optimism. 

<I love you, WAY more than I weigh!>

Oh – as per her daddy's comments?  They both are Chuck Taylor devotees and are currently wearing practically the same style right now.

Claire wore her rubber boots to the park yesterday – she picked these up at the thrift store with Lill a few weeks back.  I think they're great!
