This is the life we live with two awesome girls!!!

WoW it's been a really, really, really, long time!!! My girls are so big they look nothing like they did a few years ago. I am so proud of both of them! They have both accomplished a lot in the past few years. Recently, Jordyn just won a softball championship and Zoe had her dance recital. I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things!
Hi- it was Jordyn's family day on the 23rd of March. We went to see the Lion King on broadway to celebrate a few weeks before. I don't think she loved it but she tolerated it and Dave, Zoe and myself had a great time. We have been truly blessed with a fabulous child with a wonderful sense of humor ( when she wants to show it). I have been amazed by Jordyn at every moment we have shared together. We love you to the infinity and back, baby!!!
Who doesn't love a parade? We went with some great friends to see the parade in Flushing (Chinatown) today. This one isn't as big as the one in Chinatown in NYC but it was certainly easier to get to with small children. All the kids seem to have a blast and it was a great afternoon!

I know it has been many months since I posted. So much time has passed and the girls have kept me very busy. We have celebrated the holidays, Valentine's day, Chinese New Year and have had a ton of fun. We are lucky to live in an area where there are some large Chinese New Year celebrations and we are going to go to one of the parades tomorrow with some of our amazing friends. Zoe was happy to dance on stage at Chinese school ( and Jordyn was happy not to do that). I had the pleasure of spending the whole last week with Jordyn by ourselves. We went into the city a couple of times and I love that she knows which subway to take. We went to Max Brenner's place ( the chocolate bald guy) definately one of my new favorite places as well as visited her Uncle Darrin and her Dad at work. I was lucky to receive a card this morning that had a picture of the two of us on the cover, both smiling with flowers and lots of hearts and a big I love you inside ( this is huge people!!) Sometimes I can't tell if she's happy to spend the alone time with me but apparently she was. Today her class had a bowl a thon for Haiti and the newspaper came to do a story on the kids. Jordyn was so happy she actually smiled and let the photographer take her picture.I can't wait to see the article. Thank you to all my friends and family who donated!!
Zoe loves playing soccer this fall! She of course is happier to pose than kick the ball in the field.
Jordyn, Zoe and Raenen celebrating good times!!
This is what happens when you take city kids into the country!
Happy Pumpkin Picking!!
I love this picture of Jordyn, looking so happy- too bad Zoe looks like she's hanging on for dear life!!
I love this time of year, the leaves are turning, the smell of firewood burning (not that you get that too much in the city) apples and pumpkin picking and of course one of my cutie pies birthdays, which is almost here. We also celebrated family day not to long ago. I cannot believe that Zoe has only been with us 3 years, it feels like she has always been here. Jordyn is so good with her little sister and Zoe is just as good with her. There is nothing more I want than for the two of them to be the best of friends and the closest of sisters. Right now they are sometimes inseperable and I hope it stays that way. We had a great family weekend and we were able to see some of our wonderful friends.
It has been a while and I don't know where the summer has gone. We have spent our days at the beach from morning until night. The girls had a great time at camp this year but I do think they are excited to go back to school. Jordyn did donate her hair to Locks of Love and I adore her new haircut. It's also so much easier to handle now and should make our mornings a little easier. Since this week is our last before school starts we went to Adventureland the other day with some good friends and later this week we'll be at Sesame Place. Mind you Zoe doesn't watch it ( she's a big Noggin girl) but is very excited to go. I wish she was a little more familiar with the characters but I'm sure it won't stop the fun.
Cheers to the cousins!!!!!!! Yeah- I got something I wanted!!!!! I am 7 and I rock!!!!!!!!!!!
When did that happen? When did our baby turn 7? She is becoming more mature every day. Jordyn loves to read, do art and boss her sister around- she is like a mini grown up sometimes. She had a great birthday and we had a great time celebrating.We had a party last month because she wanted a bunch of her school friends there and then we had family over and continued our festivities at the beach. Jordyn is so much fun to spend time with and I love how much fun I have with her. She has an amazing sense of humor. David said I would kick the soccer ball around with her and she just burst out laughing ( anyone who knows me well knows I hate physical activity, especially with a ball!!) This was one of my favorite Jordisms- Jordyn: Whose babysitting tonight? Me: Grandma A Zoe: I want Grandma J to babysit Jordyn: Grandma J doesn't really know how to babysit - Anyone who knows my mom- knows thats funny!! If she can have the same sarcastic , dry sense of humor as me then we'll be in good shape!! BTW- I have put the comments back on!
