Pizza Party!

26 Mar

I debated about what to do this year for Miss H’s birthday but finally decided on a ‘Make Your Own Pizza Party’ at Uno’s in Kingstowne. I knew Kerry might be still recovering from surgery so I did not want any kind of activity where we had to chase Miss H around. So, knowing how much she likes to help me cook, I thought she would have a great time making her own pizza. Well, it was a hit and everyone had so much fun!

We ended up having 13 kids and 23 adults for an afternoon pizza party! The staff was great and the mayhem was kept to a minimum. The kids loved being able to add the toppings to their pizza and enjoyed decorating the chef hats.

Aunt Leigh made the gift bags and Treats by Erica provided delicious strawberry and vanilla cupcakes plus chocolate covered marshmallows to take home.I think our adult friends enjoyed the pizza and sweets as much as Miss H’s friends 🙂

Miss H enjoyed the party so much that the first thing she asked on Sunday morning was, ‘Can we have another party today?’

I will post more pictures later today!

The Power is Back

28 Aug

I think the power was out for 12 hours. The nice recorded message on Dominion Power said our power would be back between 5-11pm tonight and it was back by 2pm. I love the under promise over deliver. And, to my shock, Comcast was working when the power came back.

Before the power came back, Miss H decided to add Mrs. Potatohead’s earrings to her own outfit.

Between the new ruby slippers, the hair bows and the earrings- she sure is channeling her girly self today.


Post-rain, wind and tropical storm warnings turned into a gorgeous day. We had fun running around the playground.



‘Mom, no picture.’

Hope everyone had a nice post hurri-quake Sunday! And, hope your lights are back on.
