I'm baaaaack!

Whew. Cold. Quick. Fun. Fabulous.

That about describes the past week. I have really missed you all and am just starting to get caught up on your blogs.

I will get to all..... 'cos I don't want to miss anything!

So, here are a few photos to get me back in the swing of things.  (gone for a week and I have to be re-trained.  You should have seen me at work today!)

This cake is Ella's second cake.

Yep, 2nd.  She had 3.

You heard me - 3 cakes.....AND.... one cupcake! (more on that one in another blog - it was..in my best New Yorker accent.... Fabulous! )


 
This cake was from Grandma & Grandpa Lopez....

  
Ah, yes, the 2 Grandmothers...Grandma & Grammie....East meets West..
New Jersey and Utah
Daddy's Mamma and Mommy's Mamma...

 
Ella "looks" like she's caught in the "middle" - but really, how lucky can a little girl get to have not one but 2 doting "Grandma/Grammies" to love her...

  
Oh, and I want you to meet Farley...You will see him in and around New York as we saw the sights, ate the food, partied at American Girl and generally took the East Coast by storm... 

Have a glorious tomorrow.

Welcome Home. how lucky for you to be able to visit New York for a week. I wish I could do that. Lucky Ella to have both grandmas at her Birthday celebration.
Thank you for your kind words and I understand how you feel about your brother. Hopefully he has a peaceful end like David.

Hope Randy and the pups missed you like crazy and were leaping around joyfully at your return!

What??? You didn't daily blog every minute while you were back east? You had a real vacation? I'm so jealous. Glad you're back!

Welcome home!! We've missed you! Although, who can blame you wanting to stay with that cutie pie? I bet she was a very sad Ella when you had to go.

I'm glad you had a good trip! I love going into the city for the day. It's a different world and fun to visit. It looks like Ella had a very special birthday! Happy to have you home though.
