Change is in the Air

I keep talking about change with this blog and it is right around the corner. I decided that with the change from Summer to Fall, I would do some major changes with this blog.

I purchased a domain name and I am moving my blog to a new home. As soon as I have it running I will give you the address.

I can't wait to reveal the new site and I hope all of you enjoy it!

Amy vs Daisy

As part of my getting away time, I have started a new part-time job as a legal assistant. Yesterday was my first day. I am working out of this lawyer's home office. When I sat down at the computer to start working I couldn't find the wireless mouse. I knew they had one because I had used it the day before.

I heard commotion of the dog and cat behind me so I swiveled my chair around. Standing by the table was their big golden lab staring back at me with the computer mouse in her mouth. As soon as I stood up the dog ran around the kitchen table. I would head in one direction and Daisy would head in the other direction. No matter what I said or did, I could not get her to drop the mouse.

I finally got really frustrated and went back to the computer. A few minutes later I found the dog underneath a bed with the mouse. She let me take it from her and I finally got to work.

So that was my entertaining first day. Did I mention they have a kitten, too. He sits on the desk and watches my fingers fly across the keyboard. I thought that she was going to pounce on them. But, she just laid on top of the papers I was trying to type from.

I can't wait to see how the day goes tomorrow. Here is a picture of Daisy from the Fourth of July.

Disco 'til Dawn

Well, they were not up until dawn, but the did stay up very late.

The party was a success. The girls had so much fun and now I can relax another month until the next fall birthday.

Here are a few pictures from the evening.

The decorations:

They danced. . .

They posed. . .

They played Dance Craze Charades. . .(Even Daddy participated in dressing up and in the games)

They finally slept, after a lot of giggling.

Getting Ready to Disco

The day is here. Six little girls (plus don't forget I already have three of my own) will ascend upon the house at 7pm for a Solid Gold Disco Party. And. . .they are all staying over night.

I will be busy today decorating the house and getting the last minute details pulled together.

I wanted to give you a preview of the cakes for the party. My friend Misti came over yesterday and helped me tackle the cakes. Thanks Misti!
