Good Neighbors, Good Times....

I want to start this post by saying how thankful I am for my wonderful neighbors. We are so lucky to live in such a wonderful neighborhood. We built our house 5 years ago. It's a small neighborhood of 2 streets, 40 homes. We know every neighbor. There are so many kids in our neighborhood. It's a great place to raise a family. There are 4 other girls( and I think a boy or two) that will start Kindergarten the same time as Katie. We also live across the street from our Best Friends. How great is that???

The real reason for this post was to post pictures of my friend Karen's 40th birthday. The girls from the neighborhood took her out for a birthday dinner. We had a great time helping Karen celebrate her 40th. Happy Birthday Karen.

P.S. Check me out in the pictures.....bye, bye red hair. I went back to brown with blonde highlights. Thanks for all the nice comments but I couldn't get used to the red.

While I adore seeing pics of Katie Min Min, it is always nice to see the girl's moms and dads. I plan on taking pics of my friends and I this weekend, too.

Glad you all had such a great time. I LOVE your hair!

I also love the tote and koozie...I paid big bucks for a similar one not too long ago : ) You ought to sell your goods.
