Sleeping Beauty Birthday Party

My daughter recently turned four and are you shocked it wasn’t a Frozen birthday party? She actually is in love with Aurora. She names her baby dolls Aurora.. she wants to dress like Aurora and she is a huge fan of the flying fairy godmothers. Adora also adores pink so it made for a fitting theme to celebrate her big 4.  Holidays have always been huge in my family and birthdays are right at the top. Another year of being here.. another year to look forward to. Birthdays… although some dread them.. think about it.. it’s really a beautiful thing. We should be thankful every time we get one ;)   As for this year’s party.. it was a true team effort. From painting the frames and making the centerpieces to deciding on desserts (glitter popcorn was a must!) Adora had a hand in almost everything. Here’s how we celebrated 4… Once upon a dream.. oh and they lived happily ever after.. I promise.

Oh what wonder!

One of my favorite TV shows growing up was The Wonder Years. I’m so excited to see that some of the memorabilia from the series will be featured in the Smithsonian. It arrives today and with good company. Fred Savage and cast will be there for the event! And that NY Jets jacket– of course it’s part of the display. My closest tie to the show– my sister who for all her teenage life was called Winne Cooper!

Home for the holidays

We saluted the US military this year with the Reston Town Center Holiday Parade! It was a grand celebration and Doug and I were so happy to be a part of it. The tree lighting was magical as always!
