baby shower

i hosted a baby shower for my good friend kimberly this weekend. it was so fun. i am very excited for her baby to come. we have been talking about having babies and how we would bring our babies out to lunch and have playdates. i can't wait.

the shower was very sweet. there were about 20 girls there. we didn't play any silly shower games per kimberly's request. i don't know why she didn't want to play the "guess how big your pregnant waist is" game, or the "what smashed chocolate bar in the diaper is this" game. those are both such good ones. instead we had lunch and chatted. that was fun too.

it was so great to see all of our girl friends. she got lots of beautiful gifts. so many were homemade. such a creative group of friends. my gift was store bought, but i hope to get something made before the little one arrives. what a great reason to celebrate. i love babies.

travel town

miles and i watched zena today. my sister is helping our good friend rebecca move into her new house. how exciting. i went to her house on friday and helped paint. today it was chrisitna's turn to help.

we took the kids to travel town to see all the trains. it has been a long time since zena had been there. the last time we took her there i was pregnant with mason. they loved it. of course mason was going nuts over the trains. he is completely obsessed with trains lately. we had a picnic lunch and walked around. it is just crazy hot for january. what is the deal? all of a sudden it feels like summer.

my computer mommy

i haven't been blogging much lately. it seems there is a little boy that thinks my computer belongs to him. hmmmm. miles and i thought it was so cute when mason started using the computer to play online games. now, if i am on the computer during the day he says "no mommy, my computer." i find the only time i can sneak on to blog is when he is sleeping. he is getting quite good at using the computer. he can switch to his own account and find the web page with his favorite games. luckily he still loves to go outside and play in the dirt. he is too young to be a computer junkie. whew!

ice skating

miles and i took the kids ice skating in santa monica. yes! ice skating outside in the 80 degree weather. it was so fun. we went with jen, ray, christina, zena, and bodhi. of course bodhi and dahlia did not ice skate. mason and zena didn't ice skate either for that matter. we thought they would like to try it, but they both cried and mason said "no, it's too slippery." how did he know? miles and i had a great time, but decided that next time we will get a sitter and go without the kids. i didn't even fall once.
