Mother’s Day

Thanks to Katie’s good timing, we got to spend Mother’s Day with my mom. Bryan made us brunch on the deck, with mimosas, stuffed scallops, eggs, fruit and *three* kinds of meat. He’s the best. 

It was fun to have my mom here this week (no one appreciated it more than the very new mom, I’m sure). I really think she should move closer. Like to Kansas. Or maybe next door. Or actually into my own home. 

Love you, Mom! 

It’s Throwback Thursday

And thank goodness, because I am so far behind. I need a “neglect” category at this point!

I’ve been meaning to share a few photos from Ava’s birthday sleepover. She planned the entire Project Runway party herself, down to three challenges for her friends.

First up was the “avant garde” challenge, in which the girls fashioned dresses out of garbage bags. If not for the material, most were legitimately wearable.

It made for a fun (if not messy) night, and I’m pretty convinced I can outsource all future party planning to this eldest daughter of mine. She continues to surprise me with her creativity and vision–not to mention the ability to cultivate a stellar group of friends.

Welcome, Baby Ryan!

Katie and Tom welcomed Ryan Henry late Friday night. He weighed 7 lbs, 4 oz, and he is, as Owen keeps saying, “so tiny.” Also, very cute.
