Adora is a sweet ONE!

I cannot believe 1 year has passed since the first day I became a mom. There are already so many memories (and exploding memory card) that I can’t imagine how we’re gonna find roomformore. I know we will though.

Happy birthday Adora Kate. Thank you for bringing pure joy into our lives. Adora wants to say thank you to her playmates who all came out to celebrate. We gathered for the famous frozen hot chocolate and cake at Serendipity 3 in Georgetown. The theme was Adora’s Winter Candy Land Party and boy was it sweet. We had Adora candy, santa hats, marshmellow snowmen and a Willy Wonka inspired cake complete with edible Oompa Loompa and a real monster gummy bear.  Serendipity’s pastry chef surprised us all!

Speaking of cake… of course there was a “smash cake” and boy did baby girl destroy it!  In the end she ended up dress-less because of it and was running around the restaurant in just her diaper and stockings.Classy.

This year we asked for no gifts but suggested bringing an unwrapped toy to donate to charity this Christmas. Thank you to all who helped fill the box. Adora is excited to deliver the toys to Children’s Hospital.  Enjoy the pictures.. they’re delicious and be warned there are a ton.

First Halloween

Being a mom makes holidays a little more special. We shared our first Halloween together. Adora is too young for trick-or-treating so we headed to our friend Kerry’s house for good company and candy.

After mingling it was time for a fun performance on Hobart Street. Every year Kerry’s neighbors put together a blow-out production on their rooftop complete with a theme, costumes, comedy and singing! This year there was a Royal Invasion theme… and of course it wouldn’t be complete without a visits from the Queen and Princess Kate.

Resolutions by Popular Washingtonians

From an infectiously funny editor-in-chief to a City Shop Girl and some newsmakers and tastemakers thrown in for good measure Laura Carlson at the Washington Examiner has a handful of individuals with some serious resolve for 2011. Check them out here or click the slide show below.

Morning Glory Private Screening

Thanks to all who came out for the private screening of news comedy  Morning Glory starring Harrison Ford and Rachel McAdams.  Big shout outs to members of the 9NEWS morning team who stayed out on a school night: Andrea, Mike, Kristine and Producer Dan and Heather!

We had a great night and enjoyed seeing our colleague Mike Hydeck in the opening scenes playing a local anchorman. His performance (along side Colin Powell’s daughter) was bravo bravo! Special thanks to Paramount Pictures and Allied Marketing for helping organize the feature presentation affair. Morning Glory is now in theaters.

To Laura: The flowers smell terrific

Kerry Reichs Writes Again + BIG Kicker

Her mother Kathy’s novels inspired the hit TV showBones so it’s no suprise that Kerry Reichs has some great writing  genes. We caught up with the novelist as she signed copies of her latest book called ‘Leaving Unknown‘ at Gazuza Lounge in NW.
