September 21st

I could listen to this song on repeat...and sometimes I do. Today seems like the best excuse to do so.

I do love the Pomplamoose version, too, but the original is sure hard to top.

8+9+10 = 40?

So last weekend we had a little shindig to celebrate Wiser's 40th (!!!) Birthday. The actual date of his birthday this year was 8-9-10, so that's got to be lucky or something, right?

We love photobooths so we had a little diy photobooth that we coerced a few of our guests into trying. Here are the results: Birthday Photobooth

Isn't She Lovely

While we were waiting for one of the countless July thunderstorms to pass by so we could go swimming over the 4th, Hazel entertained by putting on a fashion show in the stylings of deranged-homeless-baglady-chic.




And when she had tried on every piece from the dress up trunk...


She found someone else to dress up.


Isn't He Lovely?

Still alive...

Sorry for the lack of posting...I know my mom is missing it.

Lots of great things going on for SFA (including a bring-down-the-house-set at KindieFest, a family music conference in Brooklyn) and inclusion in a Time Magazine photo gallery. The official CD release party for "Funky Fresh and Sugar Free" is tomorrow night in the Plaza District.

We're cooking up lots more good stuff over stay tuned :)

Thunder! Boomer! Up! Sooner!

This is what I could hear from the living room last night:
" Aw - come on!"
"NO! Stop him!"
Wiser (who I think still carries scars from abusive high school athletes picking on band kids - big meanie bullies) has totally gotten into the hometown NBA team this year. It's been really fun to watch him :) And the team. They have made the whole city so proud.

What a fun day to be a sports fan in Oklahoma. We got to see 3 Sooners taken in the top 4 spots in the NFL draft (Big 12 4-4)! And the Thunder beat the Lakers in the very first NBA playoff game ever played in Oklahoma City. All on the anniversary of the landrun. Seems fitting.

Here's some more reading & a video on the game last night: Frenzied fans play big part in Thunder playoff win

2010 Eggstravaganza

I haven't blogged in about 3 months and my mother is having major withdrawals so this is going to be lengthy...

Marsh (formerly known as Sharla, thanks to Hazel) had movers at her house on Thursday and was unpacked and ready for the annual Egg Hunt/Eggstravaganza/Brawl by the Saturday morning before Easter. A superhuman feat. I think it was the best turnout yet; everyone brought lots of prize (and tricky) eggs and fancy decorated baskets. I didn't get a picture of the human sized basket that Marsh's goddaughter wore, but she obviously was the basket decor winner. So here we go...

The festivities began at noon, with snacks and nourishments to make sure everyone was properly fueled and strategized for the Hunt.

Charlie Cheeks

Babies everywhere...

Hayden with SFA

Ruby Kaye!

A winning basket, maybe for most inappropriate?

Mommy and Hayden. She'll be in the mix next year!

The little ones hunt first:

The race is on.

Hazel would make her dad proud.

Charlie is not into girls yet :(

Easter girls

Then, the babes are sent safely inside and the Real Hunt begins...

Apparently you have to play princesses while you watch princesses.

Princess times.

The Hiding Hostess.

Nice form, Wiser.

There I am.

Marsh bit it but recovered before she lost her eggs.

Booby trapped!

Rumble for the last egg

Wiser's Little Helpers

Trophy time!

You can judge the success of the hunt by how much dirt you wear at the end of the day.

Relaxing after a hard day's hunt.

All in all, another super successful hunt! Thanks, Marsh, we can't wait until next year!

High Society.

So last night we went to see Alice in Wonderland.
In 3D.
In the balcony at Warren Theater.
And ordered dinner and candy from our heated seats.
We're high class.



The movie was totally awesome, too.

"My heart leaps up when I behold a rainbow in the sky."

- William Wordsworth

So my amazing friend Lindsey is helping/encouraging/leading her youth group to raise money for World Vision. Additionally, she is running the LA marathon for Team World Vision and attempting to raise her own funds for World Vision. There's a friendly wager between Linds & the kids to see who can raise more money for clean water for Africa. And she's basically helping these kids to beat herself. And the stakes? This:

Rainbow Brite hair. Please help her avoid having rainbow hair. But if she meets her personal fundraising goal, she's going rainbow anyway. So she'll rock the rainbow. Help her out here.

This Too Shall Pass

Growing up in a family of engineers taught me to appreciate all things Rube Goldberg. Please do yourself a favor and watch this.

Saint-Valentin fête

Just a few pictures that we snapped before heading out for a delicious dinner at La Baguette - C'était délicieux!

Oops, silly remote...

So last Friday, Sharla called and said "Hey, how about dinner tonight at one of my customer's restaurant?" I said "Sure!" and she sounded pleased but a little surprised. One small teeny tiny detail: the customer's restaurant is in Medicine Park (outside Lawton)...what I heard was Nicoma Park (outside Choctaw)...about 3 hours difference in drive time. Awesome.
But we agreed so it was off to Medicine Park to Fisherman's Cove and then a dessert stop at Ann's Country Kitchen (literally in a double wide but delicious, made-fresh-daily desserts). Small town Oklahoma at its best. Sharla posted some pics of our trip HERE.

Sugar and Spice...

I am so thankful for my friends who keep having little baby girls for me to enjoy! So thoughtful!
Ruby Kaye made her entrance November 16 - and she has the nummiest cheeks ever.
Hayden Michelle arrived on January 21 and everyone was so excited to meet her, even big sister Hazel.
I've only edited two pictures so far, so here they are. More to come later.

I don't know if you can tell from this video, but right now we are getting some of the biggest (like the size of my palm) snowflakes I have ever seen - it's gorgeous!
