Welcome to Genevieve's blog! My goal is to post a photo everyday to remember and document just how fast she is growing up. We don't want to miss anything!

I love taking you to see Santa at Richelle's House. There are lots of fun things to do, cookies to decorate, kids to play with and of course one of the best looking Santa's around. Santa will be back next year for more fun!

Tiki Tar

Kimberly Crest

We finally made it out to Kimberly Crest. It is almost like a real life princess castle. You enjoyed walking around on the lawn and our picnic lunch. You did ok during the tour of the inside of the house. You weren't much for posing for photos, this is the best I could get!

Little Mermaid

Grandma made you a mermaid outfit, you especially like the tail. Pretty soon you will have an outfit for every princess Disney has ever created.

Happy Thanksgiving at Ms. Nancys

Today we got to celebrate Thanksgiving with you at Ms. Nancy's house. Ms. Nancy cooked a feast for all of us to enjoy and even had you prepare a Thanksgiving story. It was fun to see you with all of your friends and spend time talking to the other parents. I hope she does it again next year!

Just because it is winter doesn't mean I don't have miles to walk! With less then 200 miles to reach my 2000 mile mark this year, we are still out there almost every night logging in as much as we can to reach our mark before Dec. 31.

Happy Birthday JJ!

Today we were lucky enough to be invited to JJ's 2nd birthday party at the Chino Kids Museum.  We had yummy food, almost the whole place to ourselves and most importantly cake! You didn't want to leave and I had to drag you out with the promise of ice cream from Costco.

Vince's Spaghetti

Mommy wanted to take you out to a special dinner because you were such a good girl for me in New York. You love spaghetti and chocolate ice cream so what better then Vince's with spumoni for dessert? You enjoyed yourself very much and ate so much!

Princess College

Genevieve: Mommy will pick me up from school tomorrow.
Grandma: Why?
Genevieve: Because she loves me.

A table for you

New York, Day 5

We started the day with the most anticipated event of the whole trip- tea at the Plaza Hotel! You dressed up just like Eloise (who lives at the Plaza, of course!) for breakfast at the Palm Court. Afterwards we headed down to the Eloise shop which was of course wonderful and we spent a lot of time before I had to convince you to go over to Central Park, where you told me there were toys.

After a walk through our favorite parts of the park we took the train up to Yankee Stadium for a stadium tour. After the tour was over we headed back to the hotel and to the airport. You were so good for Mommy the whole trip! I love that I can take you almost anywhere and you are a good girl.

New York, Day 4

I worked in the morning but you met up with me at fabulous Waldorf Astoria hotel before we headed up to Harlem for our walking tour. We had a great walking tour and you were so good on the tour, just an unscheduled bathroom stop at local McDonalds mid way, but we worked it out. After seeing so many neat things Harlem has to offer we went back into midtown and stopped at the NY Fire Museum and you got to play on a firetruck for a bit. I dropped you off with Nana and I headed out to see Lady Gaga's first apartment and eat dinner at Katz's Deli on the lower east side. Headed home tomorrow!

New York, Day 3

Mommy worked most of the day so you spent the day with Nana and Christi. You went to FAO Schwartz, the big Toy R Us in Times Square and several other stops along the way. We met up at Carnegie Deli and you joined me for dinner. After that we took a walk to Times Square and I got you a toy from the Disney store in Times Square, stopped at Grand Central and headed back to the hotel for some rest.

New York, Day 2

Another full day of fun things to do and places to see. We started at the Garden for a photo opportunity before moving on to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market, the Flat Iron building and the Limelight Marketplace. You took the picture or me with the mannequin, you said we said we looked the same and preety much held me hostage there for about 20 minutes as you went back and forth between us.

Next we headed downtown were we accidentally ran into a artwork by Banksy, one of my favorite parts of the trip! Walking by the Wall Street Bull we took the Staten Island Ferry and check out the "Statue of Liberties" and spent a brief few minutes on Staten Island before returning to Manhattan. Next up Francues Tavern where George Washington bid farewell to his troops. In the evening you stayed with Nana while Christi and I did a walking tour of Mid Town, including a stop at the Friends fountain and ending with a GIANT slice of cheesecake and an egg cream from Juniors.
