Birthday Party Weekend

On Friday Camille attended Kassiani's 5th Birthday Party at the Little Gym. She had a ball... unfortunately, I did not have my camera. I did have my cell phone though and I was glad it had a camera, because I want my baker to do a cake like this for Camille's party...

This cake is made entirely out of cupcakes. We did a cupcake birthday cake for Camille's 2nd birthday party and it worked out so well. There is no cutting, you just simply let each kid grab a cupcake! Since Camille is having a princess theme party, I thought this would be the perfect design to have my baker copy for her cake.

On Saturday, Camille attended Tessa's 5th Birthday party. It was also a princess theme party. Donna and the girls made the castle themselves out of refridgerator boxes... That Donna is so clever!

This is Camille and Shaneequa, an 8 year-old girl from Brooklyn that Donna and Nate took in for the summer through the Fresh Air Fund. They must be saints! This photos says it all!

Here's Tessa cake. It was a monster, but it was delicious!

Hair cut!

A hair cut that was long overdue... and I didn't even cry!

The 'before' hair

The wonderful stylist is Camille God Mother, Amy

Camille shows us the hair from the floor... yuck!
The final cut... Camille loves it! We think it's pretty cute too!

A Trip to the State Fair!

Despite the oppressively hot weather, we had an awsome time at the State Fair.

Camille was chosen to participate in a kids game show called "Yuck!" Her team won their challange!
Camille loved being on the stage and she did a terrific job!
There is nothing quite like green shave ice to cool you down on a hot day!

Vacation Bible School Wrap-up

Camille attended her very first week of Vacation Bible School. It was a great experience for her and she could not wait to return each night. At the end of the week, the VBS had a program for the parents.

Mimi's sundresses

Three sundresses that Mimi made for Camille this year! No doubt we will get at least 2 summers out of them (especially the long green dress!) We love them all... thank you Mimi!

*Footnote: In the photo above, I captured Camille's halo... I always knew she was an angel!

Loving LBI

It's no secret, Camille loves the beach. It's all she's talked about all week! We're going to the shore the first week in August. Here's a drawing Camille did this week of "Mommy and Camille splashing in the big ocean."

It's a Girl!

My family is not very big, so a new baby is a welcomed event! My cousin David and his wife Desree delivered a baby girl at 6:30 this morning. Incidentally, today is also my father-in-law, Mort's, 87th birthday. Here are the details on the new arrival:

Mom and baby are happy and healthy!

Congratulations to David and Desree and also to my Aunt Kristen and Uncle Rod who are first-time grandparents today!
