An insanely busy weekend, but full of happy times, family, friends and rainbows. Lots and lots of rainbows. Madeline’s birthday isn’t until this coming Friday, but we kicked off “birthday week” with her party here this afternoon. Rainbow-themed per her request. She is my daughter, after all. She asked for a rainbow cake and pizza, and I took the reins on the rest of the interpretation. Some pictures now. More to follow. Party started at 1, and the last guests left around 9:30 with Madeline signaling the end by curling up on The Neighbor Wife’s lap with her new dolphin pillow pet and falling asleep. I absolutely love some of her expressions in these pictures. Hope you had an amazing weekend … here’s to a challenge-free week. As if!
Nick has been saving his money and doing a lot of extra chores to buy a Wii, and he finally reached his goal on Thursday. And we’ve been dancing, snowboarding and skiing ever since. I am so proud of him.

The kids spent the afternoon with The Ex yesterday and Madeline came home and went right to the “seasonal drawer” to dig out her goggles. Guess I’m not the only one counting down to warmer weather.
